Shipping Containers

There are many different options when it comes to using shipping containers in constructing a home or commercial building. Using old containers that were on a ship numerous times can be extremely hazardous. Many hazards simply are unknown until it is too late, these hazards can range from toxic-fumes that are orderless and other hazards such as, chlorine spills, fuel spills, etc. With a used container (ASI-IS, Cargo Worthy, WWT) you simply do not know what was in the container.
