How Much Does a 10 Foot Shipping Container Cost?

10’ Shipping Containers for Rent or Sale

You might notice that 10 foot containers come with a relatively higher price tag than their 20 foot and 40 foot container counterparts. This is due to a more labor intensive process in which 20 foot duocon containers are split and endwalls are welded on to produce the smaller container.

Additionally, these containers are only sold in new/1-trip condition. As shown above, these containers typically cost $3,000-$4500 when available.
