How do I know which container is best for me?

Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, especially if you haven’t bought a container before.

We have all the essentials described in the section above but if you have any further questions feel free to give us a shout on the phone, email or via a quote form and we’ll do our best to give you specific advice based on your requirements and needs.

What are your shipping containers sale prices?

The cost of buying a shipping container varies depending on the size and type, condition and grade, modifications required, number of containers in the purchase etc.

Because of this, we prefer to understand your specific requirements first so we can send you the most precise quote we can. That way you can work this into your budget more accurately without having to worry about any unanticipated costs along the way.

Do you sell second hand containers?

Yes, we sell second hand containers as well as new containers with a total of five different types of container ‘grades’ to choose from.

Choosing the right grade is important so spend some time thinking about what your expectations are of the container. If you want your container to look great and keep the neighbours happy then we recommend going with a new one. If appearance is not important, you are on a budget and it doesn’t need to be wind and watertight then you should choose one of the lower grades like an economy grade.

Information about the different grades is available on the container product pages.

Do you hire containers as well?
Yes, we offer containers for sale and hire in New Zealand. If you require a shipping container for anything less than 18 months, we usually suggest hiring a container instead of buying one.

Of course, the choice is absolutely up to you. If you are interested in hiring a container, feel free to check out our container hire page.
