Used containers: units that have been used in global shipping. Age will average 5-15 years of service. These containers will display shipping logos, and age appropriate wear and usage.

One Trip Containers: units that have brought one load of cargo overseas, and are released into the domestic market to provide a clean, fresh container for the storage or modification industry. One trip containers are painted a light neutral containers are painted a light neutral color with only minimal signs of shipping use.
