ContainerDiscounts Vs. Seattle Alternatives

There is no buyer protection when buying through online listing sites like Craigslist. While the prices may be cheaper in the ad, the quality is never a guarantee, and the cost of getting the container delivered could end up costing you more than buying direct.

eBay has more buyer protections in place than listing sites, but it’s easier to get scammed through online auction sites than buying from reputable suppliers. Consider delivery fees and seller reputation when buying on online auction sites.

ContainerDiscounts is a supplier for local dealers in Seattle, who often sell their on-hand stock As-Is, regardless of the condition of the containers. Buying direct from ContainerDiscounts guarantees container condition and the best possible pricing.
