Can we arrange our own transport?

Yes, you can if you are buying your container. If you are hiring, we prefer to arrange transport so we know where the container is placed.  If the transport is arranged by the customer for hire, we would usually charge a bond. Please remember we do deal with a lot of transport companies and in most cases would be able to offer the best possible transport rate. Chains are also required to transport a 7ft shipping container!

NZBOX Google Review Products

We have dealt with Reuben on numerous occasions now. Very easy from start to finish. We have had containers delivered and moved around numerous times. Reuben organised Saturday mornings for the containers so it did not disrupt our manufacturing. Containers were in great condition. Would recommend NZBOX to anyone wanting containers.
