How do I hire a shipping container?
How much does it cost to rent a container?
Enjoy affordable short and long-term options for shipping container hire – our prices start from just $5 plus GST per day. We offer storage container modification options to suit your needs, including refrigeration, lockboxes, and company logos. Contact our friendly team to discuss pricing on customised hire solutions.
Do you have refrigerated shipping 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 for refrigerated container hire here.
Can I hire used shipping containers?
Yes, you can. Hire used shipping containers for temporary offices, food trucks, or as barricades at outdoor events. Utilise our refurbished, structurally sound, wind and watertight storage containers for agricultural and industrial purposes and domestic and export shipping.
Should I buy or hire a container?
Shipping container hire is ideal for short-term uses such as a portable building, shipping, and temporary storage. However, buying a shipping container is an excellent idea for long-term arrangements. If you purchase a storage container and decide 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 containers. Our extensive network across the North Island and South Island allows us to efficiently transport your container hire to your home or work site. Contact our team to discuss rates as the cost depends on delivery location.
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 shipping container remains the property of SEA Containers until it is paid in full. We require an upfront payment of 50% of the storage container’s value with monthly installments over the next six months before transferring ownership.
