All of our shipping containers are in good condition with functioning wind & water tight doors, quality roofs and sturdy walls. The main differences are related the aesthetics and age of the containers. There are a variety of reasons that shipping container prices rise and drop like the Canadian Dollar value so check out our shipping container prices page regularly.

Level 0 – Brand New Containers

Brand new shipping containers are exactly what they sounds like. They are brand new, shiny and never used. Brand new containers are only found overseas in countries such as China, Korea and Malaysia. Here in North America, the newest containers you will find are technically one-way containers.  

Level 1 – One Way Shipping Containers

One way shipping containers are relatively brand new containers that have been used once for transporting goods. Generally these containers arrive from China full of electronics and various goods and then sold once said goods are offloaded. These containers are sold after one use is because it is more cost effective than sending them back to China empty.

Level 2 – Cargo Worthy Shipping Containers

Cargo worthy shipping containers are generally well used but still in great condition. They are completely air tight, water tight, buoyant and ready to be certified for shipping by transport Canada.

Level 3 – Used Wind & water tight Shipping Containers

Our used containers have reached the end of their lives as cargo shipping containers but they still offer a great solution for storage. These containers are 90% air and water tight or higher meaning the doors close properly and the container remains sealed but it’s no longer buoyant. These containers are generally the best and most cost effective option for storage uses. If you are looking for that new container look but want to save a few dollars, we offer custom container painting services.
