Our Goal

Our goal is to distinguish ourselves from our competitors by:

  • having a large selection of in stock items

  • offering fast & reliable shipping

  • representing respected manufacturers

  • pricing at market levels

Northern Container helps companies find the most appropriate containers so they are not buying containers that are over-designed for their use, nor are they overpaying. Combined, our customer service personnel have decades of container experience and can help you find the perfect fit for your needs.

We hire friendly people who care about you and your needs. No one is in a rush to get your order and get off the phone. We have time for all your questions and we hope to get to know you as a regular customer. 

Whether you are a professional purchaser or a small business person who wears many hats during the day, we understand you need your order experiences to be painless. With so many choices we understand it's difficult to navigate the differences in capabilities, prices, and manufacturers. Let us help you eliminate the buying hassles, so you can dedicate yourself to other areas of your business. Contact us via phone at 708-496-1696 or email.
