Cargo-worthy: This is a specific condition in which a container must meet specific structural specifications to ensure the ability of the container to perform the rig. This is a certificate that indicates the container is in a cargo-worthy state. We could also handle that for you and determine what your container is worth and check the cargo value.

Don’t buy just any container

The local depot sells whatever they possess which often means the container sells in terrible condition. But using containers does not mean we are going to suffer the same. We have seen everything: dent holes, wood claddings door locks dirt dust rust.
