Shipping Container Care

Some quick and simple instructions to follow to keep your shipping container in full working order.

  • When you are loading your items into your shipping container make sure the items are dry and moisture free; this is so you do not leave moisture in the container resulting in condensation.
  • Keep a check on the double end doors hinges and locking bars, apply oil to lubricate the hinges and the locking bars on a regular basis to keep them moving freely.
  • To keep your shipping container free of condensation, keep a little space free at the top of the container and the sides to allow the air to circulate around the container. This helps when the temperature rises and allows the heat to disperse not resulting in condensation.
  • When planting the shipping container, make sure it is level and the doors are able to freely open and close. For more information about planting your shipping container check out the section below.
  • Be sure to remove your CISA lock or U Bolt lock from the locking box(if this applies) as opening the shipping container with the CISA lock or U Bolt lock still attached can damage the locking bars.
  • When closing the shipping container make sure the door keepers are in place at the top and the bottom of the shipping container doors as if they are not in the keepers this can result in the locking bars getting damaged.

 Shipping Container Parts

We have been dealing with shipping containers for a lot of years now and we know the ins and outs and every aspect of a container, but for some people they may not have much experience or none at all. We are always here to help and we want to pass on our knowledge to make you feel comfortable and in control when you use your shipping container from ContainerContainer.

There are various parts to a shipping container that you my not know about, some are more vital than others but it depends on what you will be using the container for.

Check out our container uses page here.

With standard shipping containers their structure is usually the same, however you may get some that look slightly differnet, an example usually the double doors have 4 Locking bars but sometimes you can get a container that could have 3 or possibly 2.

 Shipping Container Anti-condensation

We have not heard many cases of shipping containers suffering from condensation issues in the 16 years that we have sold shipping containers, but we do offer support in some products if you do want to prevent condensation before it happens. 



For a protection against moisture in your shipping container the use of a product called Asorpolecan be used to aid in this prevention. Absorpole's are a perfect solution to moisture prevention as it is a slimline body means it takes up relativly little space and it can be used to habg on the shipping container internal hanging mounts that are throughout containers. The absorpoles hang from the hanging mounts in the corrugation of the side and back panels of the shipping container resulting in no space taken away from the internal space. 

An Absorpole takes the moisture out from the air and can absorb upto 2 litres into its body, and has an anti-leak protected body.
