Chassis and Equipment for Sale
Previously Leased Intermodal Equipment & Drop Frame Chassis for Sale
Penn Intermodal Leasing periodically lists previously leased equipment for sale from locations across the US. Sale equipment may include chassis for local / in-plant transportation and storage, ISO tank containers, and other assets.
The previously-leased equipment Penn offers for sale is available immediately. Unlike ordering new equipment from the manufacturer which may have long lead times, purchasing these used chassis offers transportation and logistics professionals a fast, cost-effective option to meet their container transport or storage needs. Some of our buyers have refurbished chassis to like-new condition, and others have performed only the most necessary preparations for in-plant storage.
In addition to motor carriers, warehouses and equipment brokerages who purchase chassis for intermodal tank container transport, these versatile vehicles have been utilized for fertilizer and water tank storage on farms, asphalt agitator trailers, and other uses.
