Siouxie - wasn't withabix saying that things were negotiable with TR?
I believe he said 'everything is negotiable' as a generalisation, not specifically TR. I just found it interesting that the company website gives different information from that given to Withabix, I wasn't suggesting he wasn't told that.

Shipping containers used for storage purposes are generally older units, no longer certified for transportation use.
Correct.

All shipping lines quote their demurrage and detention charges on their website.

Some companies use decommissioned containers as storage units, this would be a lot cheaper than using the type of facility we have.

I think BigSteelBox's rental containers are all new. They sell used ones, but when you look on their website they list their rentals as new.
