There are primarily four criteria for cargo containers that are known within the industry, they are as follows:

  1. Like New
    All shipping containers are manufactured outside of North America. A one trip container is basically a new container. It has been shipped from the factory into the US and is typically loaded with cargo. It’s only loaded one time and only makes one trip. It does not go into shipping service.
  2. Cargo Worthy - the box is wind and weather tight and inspected to make sure tht it can be loaded and safely moved one way with cargo.
  3. Wind and Weather Tight - This means the box is square, the doors open and close properly, the floors are solid, and it doesn't leak.
  4. As Is - The box is sold as is where is, without any guarantees of merchantability. It may or may not be weather tight.

ManCo will arrange tilt bed delivery or flat bed delivery to your location, however if you wish to arrange your own pick up you may do so.

To deliver a 20 ft. unit, we recommend a minimum of 70 ft. To deliver a 40 ft. unit we recommend a minimum of 110 ft.

The ground should be stable and level, so as not to interfere with the functioning of the doors. If desired, a concrete pad may be poured, the foot print could be layered with pea gravel or the container may be placed on rail road ties. Keep in mind the actual floor of the container does not sit on the floor. Only the outer steel base structure and the cross members come in contact with the ground.

ManCo is more than happy to arrange weekend delivery with our contracted carriers. An additional charge may apply.
