Shed vs. Shipping Container
Updated: Aug 17, 2022
If you're in need of a storage solution and are considering purchasing a shed, but have found yourself wondering if you should check into a shipping container instead, you are not alone!
This is a common question. Considering the durability and affordability of shipping containers, they are quickly rising in popularity for a wide array of storage solutions. Here are a few reasons you might consider purchasing a shipping container over a shed.
Shipping containers can be more affordable than a traditional shed. At Superior Containers, our 20' containers start at $3300 and our largest 40' high cube container runs $4800 plus delivery. The price of a regular size, prefabricated shed can run $5000 or more.
2. Construction and Durability
Shipping containers are made to last! These durable units are made of Corten steel and are much better constructed than a traditional shed. They also have floors made of treated marine grade plywood. Container doors form a tight weather, rodent, and pest proof seal making shipping containers an excellent choice for storage of your important items or equipment.
Containers are also more secure than a traditional shed. Aside from breaking out some power tools, the steel construction of a container alone makes it a more secure option than a wood shed. You can also add additional security to container doors with a large master key padlock.
