Buying a Shipping Container in British Columbia

Buying a Shipping Container in British Columbia - TargetBox Container Sales & Rentals

Whether you’re in Vancouver, Coquitlam, Abbotsford, Chilliwack or beyond, TargetBox is here to deliver the shipping container you need, when you need it.

Purchasing a shipping container for your British Columbia home, business or farm can’t get any more fun, but we do encourage our customers to do their research before choosing a container. Yes, shipping containers make the impossible possible, but TargetBox recommends that you’re 100% certain that you’re buying the right size and container grade you need for your unique needs.

Even if you’re thinking about obvious storage solutions, take a few minutes to browse through our recent articles on shipping container uses, and let your imagination go wild with ideas, like backyard offices, equipment rooms and workshops. Shipping containers can do it all and so much more.

Many of our British Columbia customers choose to rent their shipping container, which they use for short-term storage, or for moving their household contents from one place to the next. For longer-term options, we recommend that you consider outright buying your seacan. When you own it, you can do anything you like at a low price – much lower than if you were to buy a whole new building.

Benefits for British Columbians to Buy a Shipping Container


How much does it cost to build an addition on your home, or a storage building on your business or farm property? Too much. It’s time to rethink the high cost of construction by completely removing the construction aspect.

Fortunately there are better options. Shipping containers can give you affordable multifunctional space in a matter of days. Why waste money on building new or paying exorbitant fees on immovable rental units when you can buy your own permanent solution and have it delivered wherever you need it.

Resists Weather

British Columbia certainly isn’t known for its sunshine – Abbotsford soaks up yearly precipitation of more than 60 inches! But rain doesn’t stop TargetBox’s shipping containers. No matter the container grade, each seacan is guaranteed to be waterproof to handle anything that Mother Nature can throw at it. Especially water!

Our inspectors examine each shipping container to ensure that it is reliable, durable and fully weatherproof.

Modification Options

Many of our customers love shipping containers as they are to store machinery, stack seasonal equipment or create a little extra space. To get the full use out of your 10-foot shipping container, 20-foot shipping container or 40-foot shipping container ask TargetBox to undertake your dream modifications.
