Although most of the containers have made from good quality of steel and other metal, but yet there are advantages and disadvantages like other things have because nothing is perfect. So read the entire article to know actually what I am trying to explain to you:
Strength and durability-
Cargo ships containers is an idealistic building material. They are configured to bear heavy loads into built in high columns. They are also designed to resist rough environments, such as on sea going vessels or sprayed with route salt while carried on roads. Due to their high durability, containers are valuable for secure warehousing.
All shipping containers are made of standard measurements and as such they allow for standard elements that can be combined into bigger body structure. This simplifies design, planning and transport. As they are already designed to interlock for ease of mobility during transportation, structural construction is completed by simply placing them. Due to the containers' modular design another construction is as easy as stacking more containers.

Move to Desired Location-
The Containers are mostly heavy in size, for move those from one place to another you need a special crane. While lumber construction materials can often be moved by hand, even to upper stories.
The steel is mostly used for industrial construction, because it is expensive metal, so if you are going to make a container house, container hotel or any onsite container office on your then please makes it sure about that place that they will have no objection on it.
Most of the used containers have some problems in it, like handling collisions, friction etc. To fix all these types of damage can be expensive for you.
