Customized Storage Containers
As the name suggests, primarily shipping containers and storage containers are used to ship material or store it, while offering protection against the elements. However, these metal storage boxes are more versatile than many people outside the construction industry realize. On some job sites, they can be used as a container office when a few upgrades have been made.
Since TP Trailers has decades of experience supplying and outfitting storage containers to meet our clients’ unique needs, we are your best resource for custom shipping containers in Lancaster PA. For example, when one of our clients plans to use a conex box as a container office, we outfit it with climate control, a man door, windows, electricity and more. The construction trailer possesses all of the weather resistance like any other container, but with important custom touches.
T.P. Trailers has some of the best maintained conex containers that I have ever used. The response time is excellent.

Deciding Between New and Used Shipping Containers
When you need temporary storage, you can opt to rent or buy. We offer a large inventory of both new and used shipping containers for sale and rent in Lancaster PA. There are advantages to both new and used options. However, we can outfit either new or used shipping containers with all of the custom features our customers require.
The main reason that people opt for used shipping containers is that they come at a better price for nearly identical storage performance. Inherently built tough to withstand the elements, shipping containers have a long lifespan. The majority of used shipping containers can provide many more years of reliable, watertight storage. As a result, many construction crews looking for storage containers in Lancaster PA choose to save money by buying or renting used containers.
However, some used storage containers are not the bargain they seem. Certain types of damage can undermine the metal containers, leaving them unfit for storage. When buying used storage containers, be sure to deal with a reputable company. TP Trailers & Truck Equipment is the Lancaster PA shipping container sales company that you can trust. We back all of our used containers with a wind and watertight guarantee.
TP Trailers was a great option for all our Jobsite storage and office trailer needs. Hope to see you again in the future.
