New shipping containers

Sea containers are for the most part manufactured in China. In order to provide our customers with affordable containers for sale, we have them filled with very specific products, transported to Canada, emptied, inspected and then listed for sale. It is for this reason these units are often referred to as one trip containers.

Benefits of new containers

  • Great aesthetics:
    Very few dings and dents, no company logos. No Rust.
  • Free of contaminants:
    These units have not yet been used to transport hazardous products and have not been sprayed on entry into the country for bugs or other pests, making ideal for use as a building or workspace.
  • Doors are easier to open:
    Over the years door hinges stiffen up and containers will deform ever so slightly making the doors harder to open and close.
  • Great selection of Specialty Containers:
    If you are looking for a 10 foot shipping container, a 20 foot open side, a 20 foot tunnel container or any other specialty container you will likely need to order it new. See our Specialty Containers section for more information.

Used shipping container

Most used containers are 10 - 12 years old and have previously been used for international trade. As such there are usually large quantities available. LRI Containers offers low cost used storage containers in WWT (wind and watertight condition) or CW (Cargo Worthy) condition. 

Benefits of used cargo container

  • Availability:
    There are millions of shipping containers in circulation worldwide. This huge international fleet is always being renewed, resulting in the large availability of used high-quality shipping containers for sale.
  • Cost:
    Due to high volumes, pricing on used containers is low, making them a budget friendly storage option.
  • Environmental:
    Re using shipping containers as portable storage containers, allows units a second life. This eliminates CO2 emissions associated to recycling, as well mitigating the emissions of constructing a storage structure.

Popular MODS

Installation of LockBox:
Lockboxes help increase the security of the container. They make it extremely difficult to cut the lock and gain unauthorized access to your sea can.
Roll Up doors:
Container doors can be heavy and cumbersome at times. For cargo containers that are going to be accessed on a regular basis the addition of Roll Up door(s) is strongly recommended.
Installations of doors and windows:
With the increased cost of construction and increased difficulty booking quality contractors, many of our customers have opted to use our sale sea cans, as workshop shipping container garage, shipping container workshops or even container offices. Windows and doors help achieve an improved appearance and while providing utility.

Specialty shipping containers

Specialty shipping containers are not typically used for international trade (with the exception of refrigerated containers).

These containers are explicitly manufactured as storage containers and offer customers features and convenience with this in mind. Most of these sea cans for sale can only be purchased new.
