Equipment Sales

Here at Crowley we are often asked if we sell used shipping containers and other transportation-related equipment, such as chassis, gensets and the like. The short answer is yes, but not to the public. We sell surplus equipment to Rava Group, Gold Coast Repairs, and Duenas Trailers Rental Inc., and they in turn sell to the public.

We turn over about 1,000 pieces of equipment each year on average, and the above mentioned Buyers purchases many of those units based on a structured pricing scale that takes into consideration the age and condition of the equipment. Upon taking delivery, they remove all Crowley markings, reconditions and/or repairs the units as necessary, and then sells them to businesses or the public.

In recent years, interest in these steel, corrugated shipping containers – which typically measure 20-, 40-, 45- or 53-feet long – has increased as people come up with new ways to use them. Long utilized for storage, containers are now being turned into a whole host of structures, including modular buildings, housing, workshops, classrooms, restaurants and entertainment venues.
