About Us

The Shipping COntainer Store

The Shipping Container Store has been in the shipping container sales, home building and storage business for over 10 years. We partner with vetted sellers and buyers who offer shipping containers for sale. Our listings of shipping containers offer a variety of size, style and configurations.

You can often times purchase air-conditioned job-site offices, trade show booths, living spaces, or extra-large dry storage units for your personal or company items as well. All units are described accurately and may be cargo worthy, wind and water tight or leakproof and durable for relocation, pack up, and shipping.

We provide up-front and transparent pricing to our customers. Our sellers post their inventory for sale and our buyers utilize the buy it now feature or the make offer feature to purchase the unit. We handle the entire sale. We do not charge our sellers a commission but we do charge a nominal buyer’s fee of 10 percent of the sales price. If you are a Kentucky business, we also collect 6% tax on your invoice. If you pay via PayPal or credit card we do pass the credit card fees of 3%to the buyer.

Shipping container conditions. NEW “One Trip” containers are shipped from Asia with a single container cargo load. These containers are referred to as “new” or in “like new” condition. One trip containers are ideal if appearance and longevity are top priorities.

USED cargo worthy containers are certified for global transport based on the condition of the doors, floor, walls, and ceiling. Dents, rust, and corroded paint may be present. The unit is leak proof.


REFURBISHED cargo worthy containers are certified for global transport based on the condition of the doors, floor, walls, and ceiling. The unit has been sanded, all rust removed, and a new coat of primer and paint applied. The container is leak proof.


The Shipping Container Store does not sell “As Is” units due to the risk of structural integrity.
