Doors That Seal
Every container we sell is guaranteed to have doors that seal properly, with gaskets in working condition.
Please Note: loading containers heavy on one side, or setting them on uneven surfaces can sometimes cause doors to not line up properly. Even surfaces that look flat may have enough slope over 20′-40′ to twist the container just enough to make the doors not line up. The best way to ensure your doors are square is by placing wood blocks or railroad ties under the door frame (please have these ready at delivery, not provided by the driver).
Please ensure your doors are aligned prior to contacting us with warranty concerns.
We guarantee your container will be leak free at delivery, or we’ll fix it. We’ll guarantee your container won’t leak for the term of the warranty (does not cover contents, customers should inspect containers for leaks regularly). Because containers are stacked both on ships and in storage, sometimes you’ll see dings and dents on the roof. If water pools, that dent will turn into a rusty hole. Small holes can usually be repaired with caulk, while larger holes may require a patch. The best way to prevent this is to check your container regularly and paint the roof with a paint formulated for use on metals.
Floors Free of Holes
A cargo-worthy shipping container is designed to hold cargo in excess of 40,000 lbs., and while storage grade containers (WWT) may not quite meet that standard, we will guarantee that floors are free of holes or soft spots and ready to be used. Please note, the best way to prevent holes or soft spots in the floor is to keep your container out of standing water so the steel cross-members under the floor don’t rust out.
