20ft high cube container  

The 20ft high cube is exactly the same as the standard 20ft container, but with one important difference. It’s got an extra foot of height. High cubes are great for oddly-shaped cargo. Or, if you need that extra storage space to pack in more goods, without increasing the floor space (and thus the overall cost of shipping).

Price of 20ft shipping container for sale 

Now that we’ve explored some popular container types, let’s take a look at the prices for both new and used 20ft containers. This way, you can decide which container condition matches your needs, and most importantly, your budget. 

New 20ft shipping container prices

Why choose a new container for shipping? New containers have only made one trip from the place of manufacture (usually China) to the place where goods need to be delivered. They’re usually clean, and have little to no dents or scratches. 

Another advantage? You know for certain there’s been no cross-contamination, as the seller can tell you exactly what’s been in the container during its first trip. New equipment is a great option if you’ve got the capital to lay down.

It’ll last longer and comes with a longer warranty than used equipment. Let’s take a look at some prices for new 20ft containers now. 

Location Price (USD)
China $2,381
India $3,081
USA $2,583
Germany $2,906

Used 20ft shipping container prices 

Used, or cargo-worthy containers have made many trips to deliver cargo already. They often have dents and scratches, and may have been repaired a few times in the past. 

The upside? Cargo-worthy containers are considerably cheaper than new boxes, and they do the trick of delivering your cargo all the same! All used containers have to undergo a ‘cargo-worthy test’, so they’re structurally sound and completely safe, at a price that doesn’t break the bank. 

Check out the prices for cargo-worthy containers in various popular locations below.

Location Price
China $1,502
India $1,930
USA $1,634
Germany $1,450
