Shipping containers come in a wide variety of conditions including One Trip, Cargo Worthy (CW), and Wind & Water Tight (WWT).
One trip cargo containers are shipping containers that have left the shipping port once, and have returned. They are called one trip shipping containers because they were used for one shipping load before being returned to their home port.
Cargo worthy shipping container refers to shipping containers that have been inspected by a marine/maritime surveyor, and can be shipped overseas.
These meet the CSC (International Convention for Safe Containers) requirements for shipping. These will typically have a good amount of dings and dents and will likely need a fresh coat of paint.
However, they shouldn’t leak or have holes.
A WWT container will often cost a bit less as well, since they don’t need to be surveyed. These containers are simply inspected by the yard to make sure that they meet the requirements to be called WWT. If you’re looking to store items onsite, these are a good option.
When properly maintained, a shipping container can last upwards of 30 years or longer. The lifespan largely depends on the environment as well as the condition of the container.
Although built to handle harsh climates, the lifespan of a shipping container is shortened by salty, wetter environments, such as those found in coastal regions. Minimizing exposure to moisture and salt will go a long way in adding years to the life of your container.
Ideally you want to keep the bottom of the container off the ground so that it isn’t sitting in damp conditions.
Planning regulations differ across local authorities. Shipping containers are exempt from requiring planning permission as they are classified as temporary structures, so in broad terms a shipping container is not required to have it though there may still be certain restrictions depending on where you live.
If you’re putting it on your property, you’ll want to check with your HOA as they can have their own restrictions.
Shipping container homes are cost-effective, durable, and customizable. Usually they are less expensive compared to traditional housing since they use fewer materials as well as require less labor to construct. All of this leads to a lower overall price tag.
