Prices can vary anywhere from around $500 for a used unit from a private seller, all the way up to more than $5,000. If you are ordering a large quantity of units, then the price per container will go down as nearly every company offers large order discounts. Here's a quick guide on what you can expect to pay:
Purchasing a new unit is the most expensive option, but it's a good idea if you are buying in bulk, or need custom features. Many manufacturers offer new shipping containers for sale, and their pricing depends on how many units you order, what sizes you need, and the quality of products that they offer. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1,200-$5,000 for new units, and always ask if delivery is included in the price.
Buying used is usually the best option for those on a limited budget, especially considering that shipping containers are extremely durable and used units are often in "like new" condition. Many manufacturers will buy used containers and repair or refurbish them and resell them, which will be more expensive than a private seller, but will also be in better condition. For a used unit you can expect to pay anywhere from 20%-60% off a new units cost.
As you would expect, the larger the container the more you will have to pay. Most companies offer units in 10, 20, 30, 40, and 48 Ft. widths and 8 Ft. or 10 Ft widths. The most expensive units are the 48 foot long by 10 foot width. You should expect to pay anywhere from $1,000-$3,000 for a 20 Ft. x 8 Ft. unit, which is the most popular size, and about $1,500-$5,000 for the larger models.
Adding on features also adds to the price, with most companies charging hourly rates for installation. Optional features include door locking systems, shelving any racking systems, roll up doors, ventilation, climate control, access ramps and more.
