How to sell shipping containers to container buyers

What do you do when you have to sell shipping containers? Well, you may contact your local container broker or your regional network to look for interested container buyers. But in this way, you’ll be limiting your options. 

With the lack of transparency and huge cuts taken by middlemen, you may end up selling your containers for a lesser price and reducing your profit margins. That’s why it’s better to sell your containers on an online container marketplace where you can connect with buyers globally. Here’s how you can safely sell containers on our platform.

Step 1: Create sales offers

On the Container xChange trading platform, you can create and manage multiple sales offers for your inventory. You can customize your offers with detailed descriptions, photos, and pricing information to find potential buyers.

Step 2: Get contacted by buyers

Once you put up sales offers, vetted interested buyers will contact you. You can track your sales offers and receive real-time updates on buyer activity, including messages and purchase requests. You can then negotiate the prices and the terms and conditions of the sale on the platform itself – making it safe for you to conduct business with new partners.

Step 3: Receive guaranteed payment

We understand that buying or selling containers involves huge transactions. In the traditional method, there’s always a financial risk attached to trading containers with new partners.

That’s why, we curated the xChange wallet to ensure your money is safe and you receive guaranteed payments. You can read more about payment handling and xChange wallet here.

What are container buyers looking for?

To sell your containers easily, you’ll need to provide information about your containers. This will make it easier for the right buyer to contact you. Here are a few things sellers usually put in their sales offers on the xChange platform:

  • Year of manufacture of the container
  • Images
  • Container location
  • The number of containers they’re selling

Some suppliers sell containers in bulk while others only sell their spare containers. Rest assured, both container trading companies as well as forwarders and NVOCCs with spare containers are all able to find the right buyers.

You’ll also need to add the price you’re asking for your containers and if it’s negotiable. Currently, there’s a high demand for standard containers on our platform. So there’s a good chance you’ll find buyers for your containers on xChange. But how do you make sure you’re asking the right price and increasing your profits? Read on to find out.

How to get the best prices for shipping containers?

To strike the best deals, it’s important that you’re aware of the current container prices. This way, you can maximize your profits easily and even sell containers in locations where prices are high.

To help you with this, we present to you xChange Insights. On Insights, you can access real-time container prices in 110+ locations globally – within minutes! No need to research for hours trying to contact your local network to determine the current container prices.

Let’s explain the benefits of Insights using an example.

Insights graph for container prices

From the graph above, you can see the prices of 40ft cargo-worthy containers in New York, Ningbo, and Antwerp. The prices are higher in New York around $1,900 and lowest in Antwerp around $1,100. As a seller, it would make sense for you to sell your containers in New York than in Antwerp – allowing you to make $700 more on your deal!

This is just one small example of how you can make profits on every deal if you’re aware of the prices and the right locations to sell containers.

xChange Insights can also help you see the price development of containers over weeks, months, and years. You can analyze the market cycle and determine the best time to buy and sell equipment.
