Shipping Containers for Bicycle Transport and Displays
Storage containers are increasingly popular among bicycle manufacturers, according to the Alliance of containers Specialized Bicycles has chosen to use a 40 foot cargo container as an innovative way to transport and display their art bikes. Using shipping containers in this way marks a new era for transport and the packaging industry.
Generally used shipping containers in good condition are sold for $2000 and up. However, if you’re lucky, you may be able to come across used shipping containers for free. Sometimes you may find a property owner who happens to have an unwanted cargo container on their property. In such cases they are often happy to let you have the container for free if you are willing to pay the expense to move it off the property.
Shipping container homes are already an affordable housing option but if you’re able to pick up a cargo container for free you’ll have reduced your housing costs by that much more.
