Shipping Containers For Sale NZ – New & Used Grades

SEA Containers NZ specialise in the supply of both new and used shipping containers for sale ranging in sizes from 10’ to 40’ in length. Our popular 40ft and 20ft containers are available in both standard height (2.4m internal height) and high cube (2.7m internal height).

We have container depots strategically positioned nationwide and have a transport network system that can help deliver the right container to you.

In addition to supplying the standard shipping container, we can also improve it by installing a lock box onto the front doors of our B & C grade units (A grade units already have a factory installed lock box), plus we can offer a premium grade container which has had a fresh paint job with both internal and external walls painted the colour of your choice.

To make things simple we grade our containers in 3 ways. Our A Grade units have had one trip from China (carrying cargo) into one of the major NZ ports, whilst our B grade used shipping containers are guaranteed 100% wind and water tight. These units are surveyed and inspected prior to leaving our container depot.  Some of our C Grade containers are wind and water tight and are still suitable for their last trip to the Pacific Islands, but please check with us first, as often our C grade containers are sold in ‘as-is’ condition.
