Tips when buying a storage container

Determine the size you need.

Shipping containers are available in various sizes, from small 10-footers to 40-footers. 

Remember how much space you'll need to store your belongings, and choose a size accordingly. 

Consider the type of container.

The main types of shipping containers are general purpose (dry vans) and refrigerated containers (reefers). 

You'll need a refrigerated container if you're storing items that need to be kept cool, like food or medical supplies. Otherwise, a general container will suffice. 

Extra protection

Shipping containers are durable, but they're not indestructible. If you're storing valuable items, it's worth getting insurance to protect them in case of damage. 

With these suggestions, you're sure to find the perfect storage shipping container for your needs.
