Containers maintain perfect condition as they are wind and watertight. Typically, shipping containers have vents that are incorporated into each corner; this provides ventilation. In addition to this, containers have a lockbox with a secure padlock to ensure that the container cannot be tampered with, making them secure storage unit space.
