Container Info


(New) Single Use:
It is rare to acquire brand new containers; most containers referred to as “new” are not “brand new”, but actually single-use containers, which means they have had a one-time use for shipping a load from overseas. By allowing a shipper to use the container for a single load, rather than ship it empty, our cost of a new container is reduced significantly, and these savings are reflected in the price to you. Note: One-trip (new) containers typically hold their resell value better than most used containers.

(Used) Cargo Worthy:
Cargo worthy containers must meet standards* of structural strength and be wind and water tight.

(Used) Wind and Water Tight:
Container is dry and suitable for storage.

(Used) As is:
Container may have some damage which may require repair. *Containers meeting IICL 5 standards generally are of a better quality than containers showing as just cargo worthy. IICL5 (The Institute of International Container Lessors – 5 Edition): This is an international standard that mainly governs how a container is being repaired as well as the depth of a dent and how many there can be right after each other. IICL5 containers are often a little younger than a cargo worthy container.


Safety, Security and Cost Effective Storage. With steel construction and watertight door gaskets, easymove‘s containers are impervious to moisture, rodents, product degradation and excess humidity. Optional modifications including full or ceiling-only insulation are available. Heavy duty padlocks and block locks are also available for purchase. All easymove’s new containers include lockboxes.


Dry Storage Container: The most common shipping container, used for shipping of dry materials. Size 20ft and 40ft.
