Buying Your Shipping Container in Ontario - TargetBox Container Sales & Rentals

Whether you’re in Windsor, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Ottawa or Thunder Bay, TargetBox can deliver you a shipping container that’s exactly what you need, when you need it.

Buying a shipping container in Ontario is about as much fun as you can have, but before you call us up, you might want to do a little research into exactly what you need. Take a few minutes to read through our recent articles on shipping container uses, and let your imagination go wild with ideas, like backyard offices, equipment storage rooms and workshops.

If you’re looking for a short-term rental, then storage is your likely dilemma, and we can speak with you about the size of shipping container best for your needs. As our sales has grown, so has our network of locations that are accessible to short-term rentals. As of fall 2020, these locations are London, Guelph, Kitchener, Cambridge, Stratford, Strathroy and Woodstock, plus many municipalities within a short distance from them.

Although renting is a great option for many uses in Ontario, the low price of TargetBox’s 10-foot shipping containers, 20-foot shipping containers and even 40-foot shipping containers make buying one outright a very attractive option.

Reasons to Buy a Shipping Container in Ontario


When residents and businesses run out of space, the first thing they often think of is building an addition. Not only are construction projects time consuming, dirty, frustrating and permanent, they cost a lot of money. Ontarians work hard for their money, and spending it wisely, especially in hard economic times, is essential. Purchasing a shipping container (or two!) will give you equivalent space while saving you from all of the other problems of expansion.

Weather Resistance

TargetBox’s headquarters is in Southwestern Ontario, where extreme weather and temperatures don’t always make life the easiest. That’s another reason why buying a shipping container is a wise decision. A heavy-gauge steel shipping container can withstand much of what is thrown at it, and has been known to take the brunt force of a hurricane. If it can handle a hurricane, it will handle even the nastiest Ontario winter storm.

Ability to Modify

Ontario’s residents and business owners like to dream big, and sometimes those dreams require much more than just delivery of a shipping container. Fortunately, TargetBox has a team of modification experts that are skilled at transforming rectangular steel boxes into whatever you’re dreaming of, from an insulated food storage container to mini storage unit to full-service restaurant.
