Container rental Houston: Shipping vs storage containers

With a good idea of the pickup rates, the second thing you need to decide before getting a container rental to Houston is the condition of the container. 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. Read more about container conditions in this separate blog.

On Container xChange you can find containers for both your storage and shipping needs. You can compare and negotiate prices directly with the supplier to agree on a deal that works best for you to get your box right away.

Refrigerated container rental Houston: Why is it the right time to lease reefers?

And by leasing reefers from container leasing companies, you can increase their profit margins. Thus, helping leasing companies to remain big players in the growth of the leasing industry.

A reefer container carries temperature-sensitive goods at regulated cold temperatures. They work as transportable refrigerators. You can use them to transport frozen, chilled, or cold goods such as dairy products, pharmaceuticals, fruits and vegetables, meat, and seafood.
