Container hire

8ft shipping containers

The 8ft shipping container is becoming increasingly popular as a storage or transport solution. Commonly known as ‘mini cubes’, this is the smallest size of container that NZBOX hires out. An 8ft shipping container is the perfect space saving option; it is compact but has enough space to store a variety of equipment or goods. These practical containers are often used to safely store furniture, outdoor equipment, gardening tools, documents and much more. They might be small, but they pack in much more storage room than you might think.

8ft Shipping Container for Hire

An 8ft container is a space saving unit that is suitable for the safe storage or transportation of goods. Constructed from quality materials, these containers are durable and able to withstand extreme temperatures, which makes them perfect for the transportation of cargo on sea or land. Whether you want to store or transport goods, hiring an 8ft container is an effective solution that will help you maximise available space.

Benefits of the 8ft containers include:

  • Constructed with steel frames, corrugated steel side and end walls, die-stamped corrugated steel roofs and either wooden or bamboo flooring
  • Made from extremely tough Corten Steel
  • Secure lockbox for security
  • Full door seals to vermin proof and keep weather tight
  • Forklift pockets for onsite moves

Delivery Options: We can deliver with a Hiab truck, unless the customer has a forklift on site, in which case it can be delivered with a flat deck.

Frequently asked questions

What are 8ft containers used for?
As previously mentioned, 8ft containers are a great storage solution when you don’t require something as big as a standard 20ft container. They also make great containers for modification and are regularly converted into offices, kiosks and retail spaces.
Should I hire an 8ft or a 10ft container?
It really depends on how much you have to store and the length of what you are storing. We would suggest measuring what your largest items are to ensure they fit inside the 8ft container. There is quite a difference in price between an 8ft versus a 10ft container so if everything looks like it will fit into an 8ft container then it’s definitely the better value for money choice.
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 an 8ft shipping container!
