We are surrounded by stuff.
We live in a world where the stuff that we have can get to the point where it outnumbers everything else in our lives.
When you finally reach the point in your life when you need to go through these items that you have collected for years you may need a plan. A plan to sort and organize. A plan to help you decide what you will keep, what you will pitch, what you will give away, and what you will sell. The logistics of this organizational system, however, can be complicated.
Some sorting processes are easy, but others can require extreme measures. When, for instance, the collected items have taken decades to gather, and the storage location is a Quonset building half the size of a football field, the sorting will be intense. In fact, you might even need to consider getting new storage containers for sale to help with the process.
With a few storage container modifications you might be able to divide the new storage containers for sale into individual compartments. These specific spaces can serve as locations for dividing the items by function. All wood tools, for instance, can be in one part of the steel shipping containers and the welding equipment can be included in another part of the steel cargo container. Whether you decide to buy used storage containers or new containers, the purpose is still the same, to keep things protected and dry during the entire process.
Consider some of these other uses for storage containers:
- Shipping containers that are carefully maintained can last for a total of 20 years, according to the publication Container Auction.
- A standard twenty foot equivalent unit container can hold nearly 3,500 shoe boxes, and a 40 foot high cube can hold more than 8,000 shoe boxes.
- With more than 17 million shipping containers in the world, at any given time, only 6 million of them are in use. As a result, approximately 11 million shipping containers are currently unused and could be converted into storage units, or even homes for people.
- 95% of the world?s cargo moves by ship. Due to higher costs in other transportation offerins, it still makes more financial sense to transport goods in high volume ships.
