Eveon Containers easily enables you to source the best possible shipping containers on the internet. No mess no fuss!

Added to our product offering, we focus on sustainability and believe in reusing shipping containers instead of purchasing and selling new ones. That’s because used containers are often still perfectly suitable for storing products on land.

Aesthetically, it’s evident that these containers have often been transporting goods around the globe for years and have been exposed to rough seas, hence, they may have some marks. However, they are made from extremely durable steel, ideal for withstanding extreme weather conditions and therefore, still ideal for mainland use.

20ft shipping container dimensions

In the US the Imperial system is used to measure a 20ft container’s dimensions. This is why all sea freight containers across the globe are indicated by their size in feet. The most common container is a 20ft container and all other sizes are indicated in their relation to a 20ft shipping container. For E.g. a 20ft shipping container is 1 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit), and a 40ft container is 2 TEU. We can thank American businessman Malcolm McLean for this system since he was the one to first develop the intermodal shipping container last century.

20ft Shipping Container for sale

Our standard 20ft containers have traveled the world, and as a result, can sometimes look a bit rough with signs of wear and tear. Regardless of their travels, we guarantee that each container is wind and watertight, meeting universal, quality standards for Used Conex containers.

We ensure there are no holes in the overall frame and that the plywood floor inside is in good condition. Furthermore, our containers come in a range of colors and sizes, and many still have the logos of their original shipping companies (which can easily be removed according to your needs).

At Eveon Containers Inc., our containers are optimal for land-based purposes such as storage solutions and they will serve as a great solution for many years to come.

There are various reasons why we do not sell new containers:

  • New Conex containers are not as sustainable as used containers. - In fact, 3 - 6 million new containers are produced from scratch each and every year globally which is a great environmental waste. - New containers require mass energy consumption during the production process — unnecessary waste to the environment if there are already used ones available. - Used containers are merely found in all corners of the globe and can easily be polished up and resold instead of being left as waste or lying unused in dockyards around the globe.
  • Used containers are a much cheaper option for you as our customer, especially if you’re on a tight budget and if you merely require a Conex container for land use exclusively.
  • Using new containers simply isn’t in our company’s mission statement. You can read more about Eveon’s contribution to sustainability.

For the above reasons, we prefer to sell used containers.
