Insulated containers

Our Insulated Shipping Containers are essentially non-operating refrigerated containers that have retained their heavy-duty insulation and are available for sale and hire right throughout New Zealand. They are a great transport and storage solution when the internal ambient temperature has to be consistent. This means that they are naturally durable, wind and watertight and are a fantastic way of keeping your possessions free from contamination.

Frequently asked questions

Are there different insulated shipping container sizes?

Our Insulated Containers are available in 20ft and 40ft sizes.

What are the uses of insulated shipping containers?

These containers are readily used for the transport of goods that require consistent ambient temperatures (like some foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals etc). They are also great to use for personal long term storage for clothes, furniture, books, food storage (in particular honey products) and even wine cellars. They are also sometimes modified to serve as an office, workshop or shed.

What are the benefits of an Insulated Container?

They hold a fairly event ambient temperature compared to a standard dry container which can fluctuate a lot if in direct sunlight. They also have reduced condensation and have sound proofing qualities if you are in an area with unwanted sound pollution. They are also excellent at holding warm or cool air with the addition of a heat pump (we sell a range of heat pumps suitable for shipping containers).

What sort of condition are they in?

Insulated containers are ex-refrigerated containers where the machinery is considered to expensive to repair. This usually happens around the 12 year mark. Since refrigerated containers are about 5 times the price when made they tend to be better looked after during their lifetime, therefore, they tend to be in better condition than a similar aged standard shipping container.
