What are the benefits of our Flat Pack container over a used shipping container?

Shipping containers are designed to transport and handle goods by sea and at container ports for onward distribution.  Although popular for static storage, shipping containers are not designed for long term storage.  Condensation has a detrimental effect on any items not water-resistant. Mildew and damp air soon spoil any items that need a dry environment.  Also, the delivery and off-loading of a whole shipping container can be expensive.  Why not see below the advantages and differences between a used shipping container and our flat-pack container range.  Our products are designed and manufactured specifically for long term storage on dry land.
