Shipping containers, originally designed for transporting cargo across vast oceanic distances, have found various alternative uses. These durable structures are now being creatively used as homes, pop-up shops, and storage units, among other things. One reliable supplier of both new and used shipping containers for sale in the USA is Pelican Containers. Our company has carved out a niche for itself by providing high-quality containers at competitive prices.
One of the most compelling reasons to consider purchasing used shipping containers is the significant cost savings they provide.
New shipping containers can cost several thousand dollars depending on their size and specifications. This high initial investment may be prohibitive for small businesses, startups, or individuals seeking innovative and affordable solutions for their needs.
On the other hand, Pelican Containers offers used shipping containers that are often available for a fraction of the price of their new counterparts. This affordability does not compromise quality or container durability, as used containers have already proven their resilience and reliability in the harsh conditions of marine transport.
Quality assurance is not only about the physical condition of the container, but also its functionality, durability, and adherence to safety standards. At Pelican Containers, this dedication to quality is a crucial aspect of our service.
Every shipping container in our inventory undergoes a thorough inspection process by experienced professionals who understand the unique demands placed on these containers during their lifecycle. The examination assesses every aspect of the container, including its structure, integrity, functionality, and safety features.
The structural assessment involves inspecting the container’s overall condition to detect any damage or signs of wear and tear, including the doors, flooring, walls, and ceiling. The functionality check ensures that all container components are in working order. This includes door hinges, locks, and seals, necessary for container and content security. The safety evaluation ensures the container meets all applicable safety standards. This is crucial for containers used in shipping or storage, as they must endure challenging conditions and safeguard their contents.
Once a container passes these container safety regulations, it is ready for sale. This rigorous approach to quality assurance ensures customers have confidence that they are investing in a product that meets high standards of quality, functionality, and safety.
Opting for quality used containers actively reduces demand for new production, contributing directly to the effort to preserve the environment. This is important because manufacturing new shipping containers requires significant amounts of steel and other materials, resulting in substantial carbon emissions. By choosing pre-owned containers, you’re effectively decreasing the need for new production, thus reducing the associated environmental impact.
Giving these sturdy structures a second life also prevents them from being sent to landfills. Thousands of retired shipping containers are discarded annually, contributing to waste accumulation and an environmental hazard. Repurposing these used containers can greatly reduce waste and promote a more circular economy.
Pelican Containers is leading this eco-friendly initiative. We aim to extend the lifecycle of these resilient containers by offering them for resale after thorough inspection and refurbishment. This not only ensures that the containers remain functional and safe for further use, but also prevents unnecessary waste and provides an environmentally-friendly future of shipping container usage.
Versatility of Use
Beyond their traditional use in cargo transport, shipping containers have shown incredible versatility. Through innovative and personalized modifications, containers may be transformed into a multitude of functional spaces.
Here are just a few examples of how quality used containers can be repurposed:
- Homes and living spaces. Shipping containers offer a unique opportunity to construct comfortable, eco-friendly container homes with all the amenities of traditional housing.
- Offices and workspaces. Shipping containers can be transformed into modern offices, including meeting rooms, workstations, and restrooms.
- Retail and pop-up shops. The mobility and compact size of shipping containers make them perfect for creating unique retail spaces, such as pop-up stores, cafes, or galleries.
- Storage units. Shipping containers are primarily designed for storage and can be used to serve as secure, weatherproof storage units for personal or commercial purposes.
- Community buildings. From schools and libraries to health clinics and disaster relief shelters, used containers can be transformed into essential community facilities.
