Frequently asked questions
What are 6ft containers used for?
Our 6ft shipping containers are the smallest of our containers but are proving popular for those that aren’t looking for a full shipping container but need something portable. Ventilated and weather-tight, these can also be a great option for adding storage around the home.
Should I buy a 6ft, 7ft, 8ft or a 9ft 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 our smallest 6ft container. There is quite a difference in price between the different size containers so if everything looks like it will fit into a smaller container then it’s definitely the better value-for-money choice.
Do you sell second hand 6ft containers?
At this stage, we do not sell second-hand 6ft containers. The reason is because 6ft containers are still a very new design and no second-hand market has yet developed in NZ. We envisage having some ex-hire stock to sell by mid to late 2023.
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!
