What if I buy a shipping container myself and then want to ship it?

Most containers you see for sale are not licensed or up to shipping standards to be loaded on a ship. Also most shipping lines do not like to load other people’s containers and at the very least are going to always give priority to using their own containers first. When UPakWeShip give you a self-loading shipping container rate, it is based on us renting a container from the shipping line for that one journey. So bottom line we do not suggest trying to ship your own steel container overseas.
