Ask About Our Customer Friendly Terms and Delivery Options

We offer options for customers to pay for the balance of their container upon delivery.  This provides customers with the opportunity to inspect the shipping container and confirm it is the same container they expected to receive.

This is very important because 99% of shipping and storage containers are delivered by a third-party trucking company who has no accountability in the sale of the container beyond safe transport, which means if you pay in full up-front you own the container that gets delivered.


Helpful Information About Shipping Container Conditions

Almost all shipping containers that are manufactured to ISO specifications are made outside of the USA and are conveniently available for transporting cargo internationally including to the United States.  For many, once these new containers are unloaded in the USA they have fulfilled their purpose and are no longer of use to the owner.  These containers are essentially still in new condition but can no longer be considered “new” by definition because they have been used for 1 trip.  This is why you will often encounter a disclaimer of sorts referencing NEW Shipping Containers as “like new”, “one time use”, “one trip”, or “near new”.

Transport Planning maintains an inventory of shipping containers from all three types of conditions:

  • New / Like New Shipping Containers – have only been used one time and are essentially new containers
  • Used – Cargo Worthy Shipping Containers – are used freight containers that qualify as certified for overseas international shipping
  • Used – Water Tight Shipping and Storage Containers – are milvans that won’t pass for global shipping, but are in good, sturdy condition for use by an individual owner for shipping and more commonly used for storage

Shipping Container Inspection and Quality

We will inspect and provide pictures of containers upon request.

Transport Planning is a Distributor of shipping containers.  This means we are selling shipping and storage containers from our inventory and are accountable for their condition.  This is important to know in today’s age of e-commerce where you will see a container promoted online, but the container you receive is not the same one that was promoted on the site.
