Up to 20,000 conex boxes may be abandonded in U.S.

    I wrote a few days ago about Hanjin going bankrupt . Now one of the company's that leased them containers is scrambling because it has 20,000 units in the U.S. and no one responsible to return them to  Asia.  Textainer Group Holdings Ltd asked a judge to force customers to pay for their return. he said  " Not likely".

  So the market may become flooded . It takes special equipment to handle these thing and trucks. All that need to be paid .

     So if you lust to do this, it may cost less this winter .


  1. if you do that, be careful. the roofs aren't very strong. They collapse if buried under too much dirt. The containers are designed to take the load on the corners, not the roof. The roof is fairly thin.

    Just sayin'

    1. When buried you need load bearing walls and ceiling outside .
