For the best results, personal items or business-related cargo should be shipped with one-time shipping containers. One-time shipping containers are brand new containers that have only been shipped once after manufacturing. They don’t have blemishes, dents, or ware. In short, they are a buyer’s best option.

Some people might be tempted to buy a used shipping container, or rent a container. This option may seem like a cost-effective option at first. However, the cost-saving may not be worth it. Many benefits come along with the purchase of a one-time shipping container.

Save Money

When renting a container, buyers will have to make at least 18 months’ worth of payments to break even. And getting a used container isn’t much better.

Money for patch-ups and upgrades might be needed for a container to be up to shipping standards. It’s much more cost-effective to make a one-time purchase on a container. The quality is unbeatable, and there is much less hassle involved.

Recoup Your Investment

With a rental or older shipping container, less money can be recouped. Rental containers are shipped back to the company that owns them and all the rent paid is down the drain. An older, used container isn’t likely to be bought by anyone. There is a market for new or slightly used shipping containers. The better the condition, the higher chance of resale. You won’t make back all your money, but you can get a reasonable portion.
