CWO ("Cargo Worthy")
Used shipping containers that are still able to be CSC certified for overseas shipment, and stacked up to 7-high on container ships. Cargo-worthy or "CWO" containers are generally in similar cosmetic condition to WWT containers (though, CWO units tend to be a couple years newer, on average).
Because containers are exposed to the elements and made from steel, all CWO and WWT units will have some surface rust. Fortunately, containers are made from cor-ten steel and built to be extremely durable. A fresh coat of paint also goes a long way in cleaning up a used container.
To repair a container to "cargo worthy" standards, CWO containers will often have patches (to remove large dents or holes). Those repairs have been made at professional facilities, and our 1-Year Warranty covers the doors, floors and roof of every CWO container we sell.
