Like many things, this depends on several factors. A certain amount of wear and tear is normal, but dents in the outer shell and cracks in the paint can allow rust to develop, shortening the lifespan of your container. Shipping containers used to transport goods by sea are more exposed to water, wind and other elements that can shorten the container’s lifespan. Generally, a shipping container’s lifespan is 10 to 25 years. They can last up to 50 years if you look after them well.
Typically made of steel, shipping containers are durable and strong. However, they are still susceptible to wear. Exposure to water or salty air can lead to corrosion and rust, which will degrade the foundation of your shipping container.
It is worth buying if the shipping container is in good condition and well-maintained. Ensure you inspect its condition before purchasing.
