Re: "CONNEX" shipping/storage container
I would double check that tare weight. An empty 20' should weigh in at around 4800#. When I worked for a towing company, we would buy these at the docks and resell them. They would typically get set on two to three RR ties. We would not set them directly on dirt but sometimes they went on a bed of gravel. The cheap containers are not what you want as the floor may have some holes. The best are the one ship containers since they are practically new. When you are done, you should be able to sell it for about what you paid for it, less delivery charges.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
