GRADE A – CARGO WORTHY
Our grade A containers are very similar to our grade A+ containers in that they are still certified to be used in the shipping industry. They have no defects or major damage to the structural integrity of the container. Grade A containers are superior shape cosmetically to our grade B or grade C containers, and will cost less than a grade A+ container, making it a great option for a used container.
Our grade A containers are the most common unit that we sell and are perfect to use if you plan on getting any modifications.
GRADE B – WIND AND WATER TIGHT
Our grade B containers are known as “Wind and Water Tight” containers. They are the most common container on the market, and are the cheapest option if you are looking for a container that is guaranteed to be weather proof and rodent proof. These containers are between 10-15 years old and have been retired by the shipping line so they can show considerable wear and tear. If you are on a tight budget and do not care as much about the cosmetics of the container this may be the best option for you.
GRADE C – AS IS
Our grade C containers have been damaged in one way or another and are sold “as is”. These containers have been taken out of commission in the shipping industry and are not suitable for storage. They could have major damage on the roof or walls, damaged floors, bad seals, doors that are difficult to open, or structural damage.
Sometimes we will get grade C containers that will seem to be in good shape for the most part, but they have an issue that excludes them from being categorised as a Grade B container, so we cannot guarantee that there wont be any leaks. The price difference to upgrade to a grade B is fairly insignificant so we do not recommend purchasing a grade C unless you do not need a container to be weatherproof. Our grade C containers are a good option if you are on a tight budget, and are just looking to keep your cargo secure.
