Why Choose Water/Wind Tight Shipping Containers

Our environment is undergoing transformation, and it’s increasingly evident that we must adopt sustainable practices.  One way is to reuse and recycle shipping containers after they have moved product overseas for many years. Generally, shipping lines and leasing companies will keep a container in service for 10-15 years, then they will off-hire the units to depot facilities around the county to be sold to wholesalers like Container Sales Group. Shipping Containers are made of strong Corten Steel and built to withstand the harsh weather conditions of moving cargo overseas. The durability and affordability of these units make shipping containers a popular option for storage units, living spaces and offices. 

Used shipping containers are rectangular storage containers composed of durable steel components that are used to contain products for shipping.

What Are Water/Wind Tight (WWT) Shipping Containers?

Water/Wind Tight (WWT) shipping containers are a classification used in the shipping and logistics industry to describe containers that meet specific standards regarding their condition. Typically, you can expect a used WWT container have no holes protecting the internal contents of the unit from normal weather conditions. In addition to being watertight, WWT containers are also wind-tight, meaning they are effectively sealed to prevent wind from entering the container and potentially causing damage to the contents stored in the unit. WWT Containers are typically 10-15 years of age and may have visible rust, dings, dents, or professional patches but are still deemed Water/Wind Tight for storage. Container Sales Groups’ WWT containers are not only affordable and functional, but we guarantee their condition.
