Neighbor up the road has an old truck trailer he stores things in. I am thinking of getting me one too. Why will I be sorry? How much will I have to pay?

I have used them for storage on contruction projects many times.
One thing to look close at is the roof ... used trailers have flexed a lot and tend to leak.
That could cause you a lot of damage if you don't catch it right away.
Other than that they are great !
cheers,
mk

Don't know where your at but around here people use those land, sea, and air shiping containers. Price depends on condition. Last time I checked you could get a good one, 40 footer, delivered for around 1200.00 bucks.

$1200-1250 is about the price around Houston too.

Sometimes around here you can find a moving and storage outfit that is selling their old transport trailers around here. They are higher cube and they have several doors to access different parts of the trailer. It's nice to be able to wall off for different storage areas if you need them without a bunch of modification and hole cutting.

that would be they way to go burr, up higher of the ground too , fellow down the road got one , he left the country, rented his place out stored all his furniture in there, if you want to move it ,it,s easier too.

I like them too. My cousin found one for $400 that only needed tires.

He made a portable tool crib for his construction outfit. I like it because the side door is down low and are 8 or 10 feet wide so you can run a bobcat in and out to load heavy stuff.
