How long will a shipping container last?

Everything we sell comes with our 12-month guarantee as standard to ensure your peace of mind.

A used container should provide circa 10-years of good use with minimal or low maintenance.

With a refurbished container you should expect a similar if not slightly increased lifespan.

A one trip or new container, when sat static, will last a lot longer. How long largely remains untested (container designs change more frequently than their expected static lifespan, so by the time we tested on and came back to say it can last 30 years, a newer design of container will be in use.

We typically suggest ‘circa a generation of solid use’ perhaps with a basic maintenance scheduled every 10 years or so.
