Shipping Container Frequently Asked Questions

Are containers very wind and watertight?

Cargo containers for delivery of goods across the oceans are extremely wind and watertight. They all have heavy-duty rubber seals on their doors, making it possible for these containers to keep their contents dry. They are pre-inspected for re-sale to use for a huge variety of projects, such as storage facilities, container homes, and container offices, as well as many other uses. Beware, however, of purchasing the cheapest containers on the market that are categorized “as is.” These low-grade containers may have serious damage that could mean they are not wind or water tight because of rust or corrosion. The good news, however, is that since there is an robust demand for storage containers to use as alternative housing and storage, containers in excellent condition can be bought from The Shipping Container Co. in Minnesota as one-trip, cargo-worthy (CWO), and Wind-Water Tight (WWT). They are all excellent choices for your project and do a terrific job of keeping out dampness, leaks, and weather.

Will I have to maintain the container?

The most important consideration for low maintenance is a correctly sited container placed so its bottom remains dry. If placed inside another large building, it will be practically maintenance-free. Even outside in the weather, the high quality steel won’t deteriorate much since it is built to survive ocean travel for decades. The “new” one-trip containers can give you as much as 40 – 50 years of use. Expect to spend about 15 minutes putting oil on the hinges of the doors and locking bars once every few years. The rubber seals may deteriorate after 10 years or more, but if the container is situated in mild weather or indoors, the seals can last twice as long. When your container arrives, if it has dents or small patches of corrosion, you’ll need to paint those areas as needed or weld on a small metal patch. A full repaint of containers may be advisable once or twice in its lifetime to maintain the integrity of the surface of the steel.

How do I position the shipping container?

Position your container on dry, level ground. Paving, gravel, tarmac, and concrete are all excellent choices. It’s essential to avoid soft and damp or uneven surfaces. Many people purchase railroad ties or timbers to secure to the ground with stakes, or they use paving stones or reinforced blocks to lift the bottom off the ground. The driver delivers your storage container on the surface you have prepared to keep the bottom from dampness that can seep in to soften the wooden floorboards. You must ensure that the container is level at its four corners where the main weight of the container is held, so that it doesn’t twist, which will cause the doors to not close tightly.


Are there ordinances about placing a container on my property?

Before ordering your container, first consult your local, city, and county offices to see if any ordinances are in effect to regulate the use or placement of shipping containers. If containers are categorized as temporary or removable structures for various uses, then some of those uses may require a planning permit. Often, when the use is considered to be long-term, there are permitting procedures to follow.

Why Should I Buy from The Shipping Container Co.?

The Minneapolis location of The Shipping Container Co. offers the fastest and most transparent process for buying new one-trip containers and used CWO and WWT cargo containers with no hidden fees, no account setup, and no waiting to speak with a consultant.

However, we have a container specialist on hand during normal business hours if you have concerns or questions about your container needs, your delivery location, the delivery times most convenient for you, or any step of the process.

Other Container Information

How to read your shipping container serial number:

ISO 6346 stands for the international standardized ID system that identifies every container in use around the globe. The first 3 letters comprise the owner code, while the next letter displays one category, whether “U” for freight containers, or “J” for detachable container equipment, or “Z” for container trailer and chassis, or “R” for refrigeration containers. This is followed by six serial numbers, and the final one is the check digit calculated from previous numbers and letters as a means of validating the information. Here’s how to read the code:
