brand new green shipping container

There are benefits in having a shipping or storage container parked on your premises full of all the equipment, chattels and goods that you don’t require now but may require sometime in the future. You may even be tempted to buy a container for that reason. That’s not a silly idea necessarily, but keep in mind that most businesses - and it’s mostly businesses that use containers - prefer to rent than buy. And with good reason. It’s their container not yours. If your circumstances change and you no longer need a container on your premises they take it away for you. If it’s yours, then you need to get rid of it and that’s not as simple a proposition as you might think.
