Containers for import

Hi all,
I run a company here in Toronto. We coordinate with Chinese toy manufacturing companies to make toys according to the specifications from our client. We also deal with the import of manufactured toys.
Even though we started this company ten years ago, dealing of the import began only a year ago. Earlier our Chinese companions used to do this. When we started dealing with the import we bought quite a few containers for this. Since we did not have any experience with this we wound up with low-quality containers. For a year we used them. They can't be used anymore and we are looking for replacements.
Since last time we made a mistake we have decided to do a thorough research before buying this time. We looked for a few companies and found this shipping container sales company in Toronto. They seem to be good. But we need to make sure that it is. So I am looking for suggestions. If anybody has used their containers please comment. Also if you can think of any better options please comment that too. Any help on this will be appreciated.

Strange,thought almost everyone used the Lines containers for such traffic,no problems with quality there.When we did buy containers for Chinese traffic we only bought them ex leasing companies and fully certified...they were then sold back to them on project completion.

These days every shipping line practice " Logistics" for customers. Contact your local Maersk Line office in Toronto and they can do all the hard work like scheduling collection .delivery and all paper work for you,quite cheaply and very effectively, which will lweave you free to concentrate on your business interests and make more profit.Good Luck- an ex Maersk Line employee and seafarer
