Container Condition Types

New Containers

  • When a pristine container fresh from the factory is required and has had one-trip use, delivered anywhere in the world.


  • Ready to transport cargo as well as being ideal for most purposes, such as storage and modifications.

*IICL Compliant to the standards of The Institute of International Container Lessors.


  • Repaired to a safe structural condition to transport cargo.  Great for re-building into accomodation, storage or other types of modifications.


  • ‘As-Is’ could require repairs to be used, which might include structural work.
  • Not necessarily repaired to a safe structural condition to transport cargo but are great for re-building into housing, storage or other types of modifications.
