Shipping containers are one of the more interesting raw materials to build a new house. Because of this, many people are wondering where to find a shipping container for sale. A used shipping container can be easily found on the internet for between $2000 and $9000 on eBay or Craigslist, and an entire shipping container home can be yours on the same sites for under $100,000 if you’re interested in a pre-fabricated version of what you’re going for.
Many, even most, people buying a container want to build their home themselves. If you do this, you’ll be happy and successful by tracking down a container that is on one of these sites, rather than attempting to purchase it directly from a dealer which could cost thousands of dollars more than you could be spending on building your home instead.
DIYers have come to love cargo container homes in the last decade. Compared to tiny homes, which certainly have their charm, a cargo container home has space where you can build your home in whatever way you want. You won’t be taking a cargo container home on the road any time soon, but it’ll suit all of your needs.
