Basic options for the 40 feet Sea container
New / One Trip: It's unlikely to find a new 40 foot sea container, as the majority of these sea containers are built in china and it just not beneficial to ship an empty container to any country that import any goods form china. For that reason these sea container do get loaded on their first trip and that's why we call them "One Trip" sea containers.
Used / WWT: These sea containers have three grades. Grade A which is as close as can be to a one trip container. And grade B which is a wind and watertight and a perfect solution for long term storage. Then we have grade C which is still usable but have a lot of rust and not an appealing look.
Just like the 20 foot sea container the 40 foot sea container comes from the factories with some options. And the majority of customers looking to buy or lease a sea container don't really know that these options do exist.

While you are looking to buy or lease a 40 foot sea container there are some things that you might want to take in considerations.
A simple scenario will be as such. A customer ask to purchase a 40 foot sea container. We provide exactly what he is asking for. The sea container get delivered to the customers location and in no time we get the call that the container is accumulating a lot of condensation for example and that's effecting whatever they are storing inside it.
The fix for such an issue is really easy and not costly too. Installing a couple of louvered vents opposite corners to get the air circulating inside the sea container. The problem is the container is not at our shop anymore and the container is already loaded with the customers belongings.
Same thing goes for just about any other small modifications such as, a Weld and Go man door, a rollup doors, windows, vents or even a solar lighting system. These small sea container modifications can be done quickly at our location.
If the 40ft sea container you are interested in is going to be used for storage you might want to consider installing roll up doors for easy access to the inside of the container. If the inside of the sea container need to be access frequently perhaps a steel man door will be the way to go.
And if there is no lighting system available some shipping container windows will do the job of bringing some daylight to the container and at the same time help air out the container to stop condensation.
