The main question to ask yourself is whether you should buy or hire a shipping container. This can be a tricky decision if you’re unfamiliar with the costs involved or not completely sure on how long you need it for. For this we generally advise the following:
Do you need it for longer than 18 months? If yes…
We would usually recommend to customers that they buy rather hire. Of course, this always depends on your budget. We are happy to rent containers for 10+ years if this is what the customer wants and suits their cash flow. For longer hire periods we can offer better rates.
Do you need it for less than 18 months? If yes…
The costs of hiring a container are a lot lower than purchasing for anything under 18 months. We would, therefore, recommend that you hire a container. If you are unsure as to which option is best for you please get in touch with our specialist team.
At NZBox we try to make the hiring process as smooth and easy as possible for our customers. We can easily arrange container hire right across New Zealand with our depots located nationwide. We will happily organise the delivery of the shipping container if you require it and will pick it up at the end of the term!
