Storage container rental Dallas: 20ft and 40ft, storage boxes

Before leasing a container to Dallas, you must choose the right container condition for your cargo. Container conditions can help you determine which boxes can be used for storage and which ones for shipping.

With a new shipping container (Grade A condition), you’ll get the best quality. These are brand new boxes and have not been used before and will have tight seals to keep cargo safe on long-distance shipping routes. They will also have no scratches or marks on them. These boxes are best for shipping. Used container conditions such as cargo worthy (CW) and Wind and water tight (WWT) have been around a lot longer and have made many journeys. They serve as good storage boxes.

Whether you want boxes for shipping or storage, the two most popular boxes you can opt for are the 20ft and 40ft standard boxes. Since standard containers are essential and readily available, they are less expensive. Additionally, they can carry or store most types of dry cargo such as boxes, pallets, sacks, barrels, etc. They can also be customized on the inside to carry a specific variety of goods.
