Are the containers stocked in Virginia only? How much per mile shipping?
Hi Darren,

Thank you for your question.

No, they are not only in Virginia. We have 31 yards across the US and a few in Canada.

They are delivered from the closest one to your location and the price includes delivery. If you message me a zip code I can look up pricing for you.

Are you interested in 20' or 40'?

Peace of Mind,

What is the cost of 1 - 20ft and 1 - 40ft container delivered to Zip 65747?
Thanks in advance.

Is delivery on a truck that tilts to slide it off or do we need to secure it to something and drag it off?
I'd be interested in one or two 20ft if the trailer tilts.
You can choose which option you prefer. Of course, the price will be less if you are doing the unloading. If you give me the delivery zip code I can get some pricing for you. Thank you.

Hello again. Just a friendly note to please make sure you are comparing apples to apples when you go to do your shopping.

I've had a couple of people wanting me to match prices that did not include delivery, or it's not an even comparison. For example it will be a very dented up salvage type unit (for pickup) vs. something in good condition (for delivery). The prices I give include delivery and I don't quote salvage units unless you ask for that.

If you are calling around, please make sure they specify exactly what you get because a lot of times you can get a price and that is just the price for the container, which means you need to pick it up. I quote for delivery. We price shop regularly to make sure we stay competitive.

Have a great day!

I specified what I wanted while I was searching, I was quoted $2150 for a watertight 8x40 container delivered to my land....I even called and made sure we were on the same page so there would be no mistakes....another company quoted me $2450....I also spoke to them on the phone....they deliver with a tilting trailer so I would not need any machinery at drop off site....I have done some research and found 40 foot guaranteed watertight containers for under 1k if I sent a truck to pick it up...I have a budget and $2150 to me is max that I would pay....not sure how close the container is to my zip that you would deliver, but your price was too high for me....just gotta do what I can afford...

Thank you for sharing your experience. I hope you don't feel my post was specific to you, as it was not. It was pertaining to quotes I have directly received and been asked to match, and in those cases it was not apples to apples. If you would like to send me the company information & quote to see if there is any way to beat it, I would be happy to look into it. But if not, I understand that as well. We all must do what works for us.

Thank you again for your time, and have a wonderful day.

it sure would be nice if you replied to the people asking for pricing HERE rather than privately ---or if people getting quotes would post the quotes they get ----- im more than sure thatd give others near themselves a ball-park-ish guess at their own costs

Why guess the cost when I could just tell you?

The cost depends on the size, the depot nearest you, and the unloading option. If you are closer to a depot then the cost would be less than if you are 8 hours away. If you choose to pick it up, that would change the price as well. Sometimes inventory is low in a certain area and that is a factor too. Other times people have special requests that they are more likely to mention in a private message rather than a public forum.

There is no obligation or pressure to buy when sending me a zip code.

If I can be of further assistance to you, please let me know. Have a wonderful day.

well itd be more helpful if people could see the costs others are getting posted to them openly ---that way theyd knw their costs (roughly) if they know the person getti ng the quote & their within a few 100 miles of each other --then id assume theyd know roughly the costs --plus or minus a little shipping distance of corse but itd be a ballpark

I respect your point of view. Thank you for sharing.

As you can see, I tend to respond very quickly so anyone wanting a price range would only have to send me their zip code and they would have the current price, not a price given [whatever time] ago as threads can be accessed for years and prices change. I have sales in certain areas now that I didn't have yesterday. Whether or not they apply to anyone who contacted me from here is something I will have to cross reference with my PM's - and I will do that.

Once again, thank you, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

plus ive never really liked any company that isn't open about their pricing --or willing to post similar prices for similar jobs !!!!

of corse container size & condition and extras like window cut into it or an extra door all those things tweak pricing ,but im sure anyone getting one from you will probally pot pics and info anyways on how thiers worked out --so I don't see why not make it more open to people watching this posts that might wanna see pricing and pictures (ive heard their more powerfull than a..... blah blah )
