All our new 20ft x 8ft x 8ft 6-inch one-trip containers are manufactured overseas and then shipped to the US. They’re used for one voyage and resold in less than one year, hence their name, “one-trip containers.”

A used container, on the other hand, is typically used for several years on international shipping lines. This harsh environment can take a toll on the container, so a new 20 ft shipping container definitely is in better condition.

New 20 ft containers are made with high-quality materials to ensure that they are wind and watertight. This makes them a versatile option for storage, or use as a container home or container office.
