How to Choose a Quality Shipping Container Supplier
Guide to Selecting a Shipping Container Supplier
Like anything in life, from cars to food stores or clothing brands, there are many factors to consider when making an important purchase. Shipping containers are no different! Whether you’re using your storage container for your business or residential needs, it is important to choose a trusted, quality shipping container supplier. Following East Coast Containers’ tips below will not only ensure you buy a container that meets all your storage needs, but you receive superior customer service. We’ve highlighted 7 factors to consider when browsing and selecting a shipping container supplier.
7 Tips to Choosing a Shipping Container Supplier
Fleet Size. When a storage container vendor has a large fleet with multiple trucks, you can almost guarantee fast shipping and on-time deliveries.
Shipping Options. It is important to choose a company that can give you multiple options for shipping, not just one standard, flat-rate fee. At East Coast Containers, we offer next day, 2 day or 7 day delivery options.
Container Diversity. There is no one size fits all when it comes to a storage container. A homeowner does not have the same storage needs as an owner of a construction company. When selecting a shipping container supplier make sure they have different options like new storage containers and used storage containers in various sizes.
Company Experience. The number of years a company has been in business says a lot about their dedication, work ethic and customer service. If it is not readily stated on their website, ask the storage container vendor how long they have been in the industry.
Easy Ordering Process. If their website does not make it very clear on how to order or if they’re hard to get on the phone to make your purchase, you might want to reconsider the vendor. At East Coast Containers, our order form is simple with upfront pricing and we accept all major credit cards through our website or over the phone.
Delivery Area. Working with a large fleet and offering fast shipping go hand in hand with having a large delivery area to service. At East Coast Containers, we deliver in our home state of Pennsylvania, as well as up and down the east coast to New York State, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina and more!
Upfront Pricing. Be wary of a shipping container company that wants you to call for the price of a container or added shipping charges. We are direct and honest with the prices of our containers and additional shipping charges! Never any hidden fees or extra charges for delivery.
