A Wind and Water Tight shipping container has been inspected to make sure there are no leaks and that it meets or exceeds Wind and Water Tight criteria when it arrives. The WWT shipping container may have original paint, surface rust, dents, repairs and abrasions as result of extensive use in worldwide shipping. The appearance might even be ugly but the container will keep your items dry and secure. If the appearance of your container is important we suggest upgrading to a New One Trip container. The floor on a Wind and Water shipping container will not have holes but there maybe scratches, repairs, delamination and soft spots. If you plan to use a forklift we suggest upgrading to a Cargo Worthy container which guarantees the floor can hold the weight of a forklift. The shipping container doors have been inspected to make sure they close properly. A shipping container sitting on the ground at a customer’s site is different than how the container normally sits on chassis hence the customer may need to shim the container in order to align the doors properly. We can provide details on how this is down and it can usually be taken care of when the container is being delivered. If the hinges are stiff from lack of use we can give directions on how to loosen and lubricate them.
