How do I hire a shipping container?
How much does it cost to rent a container?
Enjoy affordable short and long-term options – our prices start from just $5 plus GST per day. We offer unit modification options to suit your needs, including refrigeration, lockboxes, and company logos. Contact our friendly team to discuss customised hire solutions.
Do you have refrigerated containers for hire?
Yes. Reefers operate at temperatures between minus 20 °C and 18 °C, the ideal temperature range for storing and transporting temperature-sensitive items. Request a quote here.
Can I hire used shipping containers?
Yes, you can. Hire used containers as temporary offices, food trucks, or as barricades at outdoor events. Utilise our refurbished, structurally sound, wind and watertight units for agricultural and industrial purposes and domestic and export shipping.
Should I buy or hire a container?
Hiring is ideal for short-term uses such as a portable building, shipping, and temporary storage. Buying is an excellent idea for long-term arrangements. If you purchase a unit and decide later that you no longer need it, you can re-sell it and recover your investment.
Do you deliver containers for hire?
Yes. We use either a HIAB crane truck or a side loading swinglift to transport our units. Our extensive network across the North Island and South Island allows us to efficiently deliver your unit to your home or worksite.
Do you offer a lease-to-own option?
Yes, we offer this service, subject to terms and conditions. After we perform a credit check, you sign legal documentation to confirm the unit remains the property of SEA Containers until it is paid in full. We require an upfront payment of 50% of the containers value with monthly instalments over the next 6 months before we transfer ownership. For a full quote, please call the team on 0508 732-266
