  1. January 31, 2018 Conex Box for Sale: Four Tips to Keep in Mind for First-Time Buyers Conex boxes, also known as shipping containers, have been a staple in the world of logistics for decades. Even with all of the technological advances made over the last ten years, conex boxes are still used to this day, a testament to how effective these containers are at what they do. Page | 1

  2. Today, people have found so many uses for shipping containers that many logistics companies also offer conex boxes to the public for personal use. From makeshift offices in remote areas to off-grid living, conex boxes are as versatile as they are durable. In fact, you may be interested in acquiring a conex box for sale for yourself. If this is the very first time you’ll purchase a conex box, keep the following tips in mind to help you find the best value: Choose a Reputable Seller Whether you buy new or used, make sure you source your conex box from a trusted shipping container provider like Equipment Management Services, LLC. This assures you that the conex box you receive is made of quality materials and is in great condition. Some sellers in Houston, like EMS, will even take care of any modifications on your behalf so that when the conex box is delivered to you, it is ready for immediate use. Consider Usage to Determine Dimension Conex boxes come in a wide variety of sizes. To help you determine how large of a conex box for sale you should go for, consider how you will use it. For example, those who wish to create an office at a remote construction site are free to get the largest conex box they can get their hands on to accommodate office furniture and create different “rooms”. On the other hand, those who simply wish to use it as an extra living space or storage space at home will probably need to find one that meets local building codes. Inspect the Container—or Have a Professional Do It for You If the seller is within driving distance from your location, you may want to check out the condition of the conex box. This is especially true if you are purchasing a used container. Inspect the container for any dents or rusted sections as these sections may need to be repaired before you can fully utilize the conex box for your purposes. Alternatively, you may want to try having someone from the Institute of International Container Lessors inspect the conex box on your behalf. Page | 2

  3. Set Up the Foundation Beforehand Don’t forget that shipping containers are incredibly heavy objects. As such, they will require a suitable foundation to make sure the conex box does not sink into the ground. Make sure that the foundation is already set up when the shipping container is delivered. If you anticipate future adjustments, you may try to use large, thick, circular materials (think telephone poles) as a temporary foundation. The shape will also make it easier to move around. About Equipment Management Services, LLC: Equipment Management Services, LLC is one of the leading shipping container suppliers throughout the United States and based in Houston Texas. From brand new conex boxes to high-quality used storage containers, we are sure we have the right shipping container for your needs and budget.
