Cargo containers are one of the best ways to store your belongings while not spending an arm and a leg to do it. There are many factors that go into the price of a cargo container including age, location, appearance and more. Cargo container prices can range anywhere between $1,000 to $6,000 depending on quality and availability. The pricing on a cargo container is eighty percent quality, ten percent availability, and ten percent delivery. If you are looking to store something that doesn't necessarily be protected from the elements, you might be able to get a fairly decent cargo container with only a few patches of rust and hole for a thousand dollars. One the other hand, if you have expensive machinery that needs to be protected from wind and rain for the next twenty years, than you will be looking at the higher end of the pricing scale. Availability has fluctuated quite a bit in the last 20-30 years, causing prices to be all over the map. Since roughly 2010, cargo containers have not been too hard for the dealers to get their hands on, which has been great for the consumer as prices have gone quite a bit since the mid 2000's. Shipping costs are also a good chunk of what you pay for when buying a cargo container. Depending on far you are away from a major city where all the cargo container dealers are located, delivery on a storage container can cost anywhere from $80 to $250.

Now that you know the rough cargo container cost ranges for the size and type you need, the trick is to find the lowest rate. There are two types of sellers, professionals and individuals. If you buy from a professional the process will typically go smoother from negotiation to delivery, and you can count on a wind and water tight cargo container. With an individual it can be more of a crap shoot, and counter intuitively they will usually try to sell for higher rates. We recommend dealing directly with the professionals who won't waste your time and can often pass on cost savings when they buy in bulk.
