Side Opening Shipping Containers

SEA Containers provide used and new shipping containers in various sizes with delivery to your site anywhere in New Zealand. Our side opening shipping container units are built to the same standards as general purpose containers, so they can be used for similar purposes.

Side Opening Shipping Containers for Sale

Our side opening units are particularly useful for heavy or unusually shaped cargo. Thanks to their side access, they make loading and unloading more effortless. Each of our side containers for sale or hire comes with a complete roof for secure storage and protect your goods from the elements. We have shipping container depots across the country, meaning that whether you’re hiring or buying containers, a suitable container for your needs is never far away. 

Those looking to save a little money can purchase one of our used open side containers. While second-hand shipping containers may have a few blemishes, they remain suitable for almost any goods storage or transport purpose.

We also offer side door shipping containers for hire and lease for customers who don’t want such a permanent commitment. In addition, we provide flexible rental agreements, so you can hire a container for the period that suits you. You can even rent a container in one city and have it delivered or picked up in another.

Our 20ft side opening containers are useful for a wide range of purposes. These include storage and transport of machinery or cargo. 20ft shipping containers can also be converted into rooms, offices, playrooms, or small gyms.

Our 40ft units are ideal for customers needing to transport or store larger objects or machinery. When suitably modified, 40ft shipping containers can also be used to house shops or cafés – their extra size and additional doors positioned on the side make them perfect for this purpose.

Prices for our open side containers vary by their condition and your transport requirements. If you’re interested in hiring or purchasing one, get in touch with our team for further assistance.
