Beginning in 1974 with Transport Refrigeration, Inc., John Allen and his partner Ed Mickler created a full service facility for intermodal needs of all types. Over the decades, we have been a constant presence on the northside of Jacksonville and have provided maintenance and repair, trucking, depot services, parts sales, and equipment sales to our customers in an honest and businesslike fashion.

In 2009, the family business transitioned to the second generation of ownership, and operations moved to Intermodal Depot Services, Inc., which is owned by Josh Allen. The business has expanded since then to become one of the largest Carrier Container Refrigeration parts dealers in North America, and we have taken equipment sales from a side business to a large portion of our annual income.

Bold City Containers has taken shape in response to the needs for container equipment sales and rentals across North Florida and South Georgia. While there are numerous container sales outfits on the internet, very few have the selection or physical presence that we do. Most are brokers that flip the container from the shipping line to the customer without ever having seen the box and they farm out the transportation to other companies. It is impossible for customers to preview equipment because they have no physical location at which to do so. This is NOT the case with Bold City Containers!

We are located on the Northside of Jacksonville, and have 15 acres of depot with over 700 containers in stock that we actually own. We have containers of every common type, and if you desire, you can come see them in person. We do the selection, repairs, sales, trucking, and service, so that your needs are met every step of the way.

If you’re looking to buy or rent a shipping container, don’t choose a high priced, stock exchange traded, national company with no customer service and don’t choose a pop-up broker who will be gone as quickly as they started with cut-rate pricing and service. Choose a Company that has been around for over 40 years and is committed to your satisfaction.
