New Storage Container for sale
New Storage Containers are very different from the used containers that are generally in circulation. Used Storage containers are normally up to 12 years old and have been around the world or the equivalent of the same a few times. New shipping containers have vents built into the side of the container as standard that allows for the circulation of fresh air which allows form the minimisation of condensation within the container. In addition, the locking mechanism will be at waist height which will make the unlocking of the storage container much better when it is placed on the ground. Lastly the floor in the storage container will be new and as such will not have the residue of any other previous shipment contaminating the floor.
