If you are in the market for a shipping container for your personal or professional needs, you’ll find yourself faced with a decision: One-Trips, CW, or A, B, or C grades. Which grade is the best fit for your storage needs?
One-trip containers are an amazing option, as they are essentially new containers that have only been used one time for shipping. If your budget allows, a one-trip is often a wise decision to make.
Here are some reasons to choose a one-trip (as new as you can get) Shipping Container over the other grades available.

Why Choose a One-Trip-Grade?
Ready to Use
Most of the time, one-trip containers are in cargo-worthy condition prior to purchase, meaning that they’re already prepped to be loaded and transported. These storage units are practically new so you will not need to do additional maintenance, repairs, or cleaning. Before use, all you’ll need to do is prep the site for delivery.
Since You’re Here > What to Look for When Buying a Used Shipping Container
While renting a shipping container is an option, there is no residual value. When your contract ends you must return the unit. All those payments become a sunk cost, but that wouldn’t be the case if you purchased instead.
If you purchase a shipping container, you could eventually resell it at its residual value. Shipping containers have the ability to maintain their value up to a few decades after purchase. These units have a long lifespan especially when it’s only had one trip on the ocean.
Buying a shipping container outright does involve a larger upfront investment, however, it is a one-time purchase.
With a rental, you will be making recurring payments. These payments might be lower, but the cost adds up over time. Buying your one-trip container saves you on making monthly payments. If you’re needing to rent a container for over 18 months, you should consider buying it outright – it is usually a better financial decision.
