Looking to Buy Cargo Containers for Your Business? Here Are 7 Things You Need to Know

August 2, 2017

At ContainerPort Group, intermodal and container transport services are the key focuses of our business, with a number of associated services playing vital roles as well.

One aspect of these services is our ISO container sales. If you’re searching for cargo containers for sale, we’d love you to consider us, but we also think it’s important for you to be aware of what to seek out when choosing where to buy cargo containers so you can see why we’re the best fit.

Let’s take a look at a few core aspects.

1. Find a Company with Experience

ContainerPort Group has been seeing to companies’ intermodal and supply chain needs for over forty-five years, our operations having begun in 1971.

In that time, we’ve developed a reliable, diversified company which employs over 400 intermodal experts and over 650 independent contract drivers. These dedicated professionals have seen it all within the field, so are able to troubleshoot and see to any problems when they occur, quickly and efficiently.

Additionally, the values our company holds should be of interest to anyone buying cargo containers. They include:

  • A focus on customer service
  • Professionalism
  • Growth and innovation within the industry
  • Team productivity
  • Relationship-building

Just like with most businesses, trusting in a long history of success can be a smart move for your operations, and we feel container sales are no different.

2. Look for a Variety of Container Options

If you’re in the market for new cargo containers, you’re probably very interested in options. You want to ensure that any company you work with can facilitate the container sizes you need for your operations.

CPG provides the following sizing options to customers seeking out new and used cargo containers for sale:

  • 20’ Standard - 20' x 8' x 8'6"
  • 40’ Standard - 40' x 8' x 8'6"
  • 40’ High Cube - 40' x 8' x 9'6"
  • 45’ High Cube – Note: this option for used containers only

Reach out to us if these container options are right for your business’ needs.

3. Look for a Nationwide Network

Whether you are looking for cargo shipping containers for a specific location or are looking to acquire units for various outlets of your operation throughout the country, ContainerPort Group is able to see to your needs.

Our nationwide network of container transport and associated services, including our ISO container sales, is comprised of locations in the following major markets:


Customers seeking our ISO container sales can buy directly from the CPG container depots in the following cities:

  • Cincinnati

Since CPG owns the land the containers at these depots are stored on, it’s simple to arrange customer access for surveying the units before purchasing, and we can pass savings on to the customer.

With all of these locations at the disposal of our clients, it’s clear that choosing CPG for new and used cargo containers can be greatly beneficial.

4. Consider Container Transport Capabilities

Securing the right containing units for your business when you’re in the market for new cargo containers is essential, but once you have them, what about the next steps?

Not only does ContainerPort Group provide vital ISO container sales, but we’re also adept at supplying customers with container transport services to ensure that their important cargo gets to where it needs to be intact and on time.

By choosing a business with these types of capabilities you’re doing your business a true service because you’re giving yourself options. If you need something transported through the use of our nationwide network the relationship has already been established, and we’ll be able to provide with our dedicated team.

5. Prepare for Eventualities

Once you’ve chosen the business you’re going to work with and secured your cargo shipping containers it’s a good idea to start thinking about the future. And while no one certainly wants to have to deal with repairs to equipment, planning ahead can be essential because, as we all know, unforeseen problems can happen.

If your cargo containers need any maintenance or repair work in the future, CPG can provide. Our experienced professionals have seen it all, and will be able to troubleshoot and see to any issues that you face.
