Step 1

Before you can stack shipping containers, you need to find a container. There are many places that sell used containers in good condition. You can also purchase new ones from manufacturers or buy them from auctions held by companies that use the containers for transporting goods (such as oil).

If you are buying a used container, make sure it has been inspected for structural integrity and painted with rust-preventing paint on the outside of each panel. It should have no holes or cracks in its walls and floors, and no loose bolts or screws on its doors or lids. All fasteners should be tight enough so that they won’t work themselves out over time due to vibrations caused by moving trucks driving across rough roads while loaded with cargo inside your stacked containers!

Step 2

Once you have your containers, it’s important to understand how to stack them. There are three main ways of stacking shipping containers: on their side, on their end and upright. Each method has its benefits and drawbacks so it’s important to know which one will work best for your needs.

Stacking containers on their side is the easiest way to stack multiple units together but requires more space than any other option because each container must be laid flat against another one with no gaps between them in order for this style of stacking not only work but also last for years at a time without falling apart or coming loose from its position within the structure itself due to vibrations caused by wind gusts blowing against parts of each container as well as traffic passing by where they stand next door (if any).

Stacking containers upright works well if there isn’t enough room underneath where these containers would normally be placed horizontally; however, this type can become unstable over time due to lack thereof support underneath each unit being stacked vertically upon top another one since there isn’t enough room underneat

Step 3

  • Make sure there is space for the container to be stacked.
  • Make sure the container is stable.
  • Make sure the container is not too heavy or large, as this could cause damage to other containers and/or your property.


Stack shipping containers are a great way to add extra storage space. They can be used for many different purposes and can be stacked on top of each other easily. We hope this article has helped you understand how easy it is to stack containers and what steps need to be taken in order for them not fall over during transport or use.
