Sizes of Containers for Sale in Houston, TX

Container Sales Group offers a variety of container sizes depending on your needs. 20- and 40-ft. containers are available to buy both new and used. Looking for containers to build a space for your home or business? Read our guide on shipping container uses.

  • 20ft. Shipping Containers: 20ft. containers are the most commonly used size. If you are looking to transport heavy cargo like machinery or raw materials, this may be the right container size for you.
  • 40ft. Shipping Containers: 40ft. containers are, unsurprisingly, best for transporting bulkier items that may not fit into 20ft. containers, including furniture, vehicles, or large clothing shipments.
  • 40ft. High Cube Containers: If you need even more space than is offered by a standard 40ft. container, consider a 40ft. high cube, which offers an extra foot of vertical space compared to the 40ft. standard.

New Containers

New Containers also are often called One-Trip, One-Way, or One-Use. These containers were built overseas and made a one-way move with cargo from the manufacturer to the United States.

20' Shipping Containers

Types of New Containers for Sale

  • Standard and High Top Containers: These containers have one set of double doors on the short end of the container.

  • Double Door Containers: Also known as tunnel containers, this type has doors on both ends of the container, making it easy to access cargo from either end. Double door containers can be an ideal solution for transporting vehicles since they can be driven in one side and out the other.

  • Open Side Containers: Where standard and double door containers only open from one or both short ends of the container, open side containers contain double doors on the long end. This can make it easier to load and unload cargo, especially cargo that is oversized.

  • Open Top Containers: True to their name, open top containers are frequently used for oversized cargo such as timber. The steel top is then replaced by a tarp so protection is still provided for the cargo during transport.

USED CONTAINERS

Used Containers have been used to move a wide variety of products all over the world and are now retired from the steamship lines and leasing companies. These containers are made from strong Corten Steel and come in different conditions as noted below.
