If you want to find shipping containers for sale so that you can convert one into a housing this page is for you!
Is the search for something like that all that difficult to embark
upon? Not really.
Some assume because relatively few people engage in shipping containers for living that these containers will be tough to find. This assumption misses an obvious point...
The global economy is built around shipping and that means many factories produce and sell shipping containers!
Plenty of shipping containers for sale are available through a variety of sellers. You can even purchase used ones via eBay!
The cost of a shipping container will be based on the actual length/width/height of the container. A 20’ container will cost less than a 40’ one.
Most people look towards purchasing a smaller container and a 20’
new model can cost anywhere from $1500 - $5,000.
A used one can run anywhere from $1,000 - $3,000. Really, the prices will vary and some companies will charge custom prices depending upon the type of container you seek (and the condition).
One thing to keep in mind about purchasing used models – you need to be sure they are in decent condition. You probably would not want to live in a model that was damaged, dented, or scratched.
There is the possibility, however, of performing repair and/or touch up work on the containers if so desired. If you do not want to deal with such extra work, you probably would be better served purchasing new containers.
Where do you find shipping containers? A quick search on the internet will reveal scores of online resources for companies that sell them.
And, as previously mentioned, auction sites can also prove to be helpful resources to acquire tremendous deals on used – or even new – shipping containers.
So, you need not feel you have limited options for acquiring
shipping containers. There are plenty available and they can provide
excellent living spaces.
