How Much Does A Shipping Container Cost?

There’s an extraordinary amount of variety and flexibility when it comes to shipping and storage containers. That’s why more and more people are turning to Container Stop for their storage and shipping solutions. But how much does a shipping container cost? Shipping container pricing can vary, with costs anywhere from the hundreds to the thousands.

That wide range of prices is a feature, not a bug. It reinforces the fact that there is a variety of available shipping containers to buy or rent. Furthermore, the potential for customization means that prices can fluctuate. Finally, delivery costs can also vary depending on factors such as distance and how difficult it is to unload the container at the location.

Bottom line: The price of a shipping container ultimately depends on what you need, when you need it, and where it’s going. There are many factors that must be considered when deciding on a shipping container: size, condition, customization, and whether you’re looking to rent or buy.

Shipping Containers: California and Beyond

Container Stop provides new and used shipping containers for all of California, plus Arizona, Nevada — and anywhere else in the United States. Looking to buy something new? We can help. Hoping to rent something used? We can help with that, too. Long story short: Whatever your shipping container needs, we have the perfect solution for you.

Our most frequently requested shipping containers come in the following lengths:

  • 10 foot
  • 20 foot
  • 40 foot

However — and we can’t stress this enough — we can create custom shipping container lengths. Whether you need something 5 feet long or 45 feet long, we can create it. If you need a certain length, we’ll deliver that certain length.

Standard shipping container height is 8 feet, but we also offer what’s called a high cube shipping container; that one is 9.5 feet tall. Standard width is 8 feet. Remember, though: These, too, are just starting points since we can customize our containers to fit your exact needs and specifications — not to mention your budget.

As we mentioned above, the cost of a shipping container can vary greatly, but we think it’s important and a good idea to let potential customers know that these aren’t ugly, stifling hot, steel boxes. They can be customized!
