Looking for someone that has connection or recently obtained a shipping container and was able to get it to your lot at Holopaw. If you can be of any help in the right direction, please PM me.

Thanks

Craigslist.

There are a few people who are listing them. 99% of them come from Miami.
When I got mine 2+ years ago, it came from Miami. Usually they will find a driver that happens to have an empty load and is heading towards the Orlando area and will simply bring the container to you for a lot less than a scheduled delivery. The only negative is that you can't "schedule" it. You may just get a call one morning that it is heading your way.

Mine was $2200 delivered for a 40' (20' was like $1800 and the extra length of the 40' was worth it for $400)

At that time they actually drove the semi all the way to my camp! But, that was right after a major road repair. Now, they will only drop them in the parking lot and you will have to get someone to drag it back to your camp. And when I say "drop them off" I literally mean that. They do not have equipment to lift it off the trailer. They simply chain it to a tree or another vehicle and drive the semi out from under the container and it drops to the ground.
