  • Why should I choose Used Bulk Containers over new ones?

    One of the concerns many people have is why we have used plastic bulk containers for sale rather than just new ones. If you're a business owner, you probably already know that reducing your overhead costs is imperative if you want to increase your bottom line. We offer a marketplace for used packaging, often the original owners don't need the items anymore or change their operations.  Sometimes, manfacturing facilities are shut down and the equipment can go on the used market as well.  All of our Used Containers are guaranteed to work as originally intended.  We like to say "Bump, Dents, Dings, and Warehouse Dust are Common and Expected, but the bins will do their original job."  

    Since Bulk Containers can be expensive, we offer a Used option to help you save costs when the newest thing isn't really merited for your needs.  No matter what though, Reusable Bulk Containers definitely pay off in the long run.  It won't take long to justify the expense of a New or Used Bulk Container becuase you'll save so much operational costs.
