Additional Details about Watertight Containers

General Details about Watertight Shipping Containers

What are the available sizes for watertight shipping containers?

At Rent-A-Container, you can find 20 ft. and 40 ft. watertight shipping containers for sale. A standard container is 8 ft. 6 in. tall, while a high cube container is a foot taller. To meet your specific needs, Rent-A-Container also offers 45 ft. and 10 ft. wind and watertight shipping containers for sale or lease.


What are wind and watertight container uses?

Airtight and watertight containers are highly versatile. Their uses vary across different industries. For example, they can be industrial watertight containers, marine watertight containers, heavy-duty watertight storage containers, as well as airtight and watertight stainless steel food storage containers.


Do wind and watertight containers undergo inspection?

Wind and watertight containers do not need to undergo any formal inspection by a governing body. Container rental companies inspect and repair them. That is why is it essential to understand different container conditions and lease or purchase containers from a reliable container seller. Read our guide to finding used containers like an expert!


What is the difference between watertight and waterproof containers?

Outdoor watertight storage containers are made with water-resistant materials. On the other hand, waterproof containers are only coated in a substance that makes them resistant to water. Therefore, if the container is waterproof but not watertight, it may still let the water in and damage your goods.


Cargo-worthy container vs wind and watertight containers

Both container types are more than 10 years old and have some visible exterior damage. Because they are used for shipping overseas, cargo-worthy containers should meet the International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC) shipping standards. On the other hand, wind and watertight shipping containers are not seaworthy and, therefore, do not need to meet the CSC requirements. Cargo-worthy containers tend to be pricier.

Watertight Shipping Container Information

All brand-new or one-trip shipping containers are expected to be wind and watertight. They have effective ventilation and durable rubber seals around their doors that prevent wind and water from entering their interior.  

Therefore, the wind and watertight container terms refer to used containers, usually more than 10 years old. Even though they may be beaten up or rusty, large watertight storage containers should be wind- and water-resistant.
