Dangerous Goods Shipping Container Hire

Dangerous goods shipping containers are designed to transport and store hazardous goods while ensuring maximum safety for you and the general public. Our dangerous goods containers are specially designed to provide safe containment. Any items kept inside the unit are protected from outside elements while preventing chemicals from escaping. So, you can feel confident your materials will reach their destination without causing damage to property or people.
SEA Containers NZ offers a wide range of shipping containers for sale and hire in different sizes to suit your needs. Choose short or long-term leasing plans for home or company use. 

Uses for Dangerous Goods Containers

The primary uses for dangerous goods shipping containers are storing hazardous materials such as:

  • Class 3 flammables
  • Oils and diesel
  • Paints and paint thinners
  • Liquids
  • Gas Bottles
  • Fertilisers

Chemical storage

If you’re looking for chemical storage or transport solutions for agricultural chemicals, hazardous goods and toxic substances, we have durable dangerous goods containers for hire to manage risk. 


Container Sizes

Our range of dangerous goods shipping containers comply with strict New Zealand health and safety standards and are available in 20ft and 40ft sizes.  

20 foot

20ft containers are structurally sound, watertight, and wind-tight to keep your items safe in any weather conditions. Dangerous goods containers are manufactured with bunded floors, discharge valves to drain spillages and large vents for increased airflow. Easy opening end doors and full side-opening doors are standard.

40 foot

A 40ft shipping container features the same inclusions and will suit customers who need a little extra storage space or have larger volumes to transport. All 40ft shipping containers are guaranteed 100% wind and watertight, and you can choose from short or long-term leasing plans to suit your requirements. SEA’s 40ft dangerous goods containers comply with strict New Zealand health and safety standards. If you need even more space, check out our high cube containers for hire.


Benefits of hiring vs. buying

Hiring a shipping container is ideal for short-term applications. Many of our customers hire units for transport and temporary storage. However, buying a container is an excellent option for longer-term arrangements. After removing the hazardous contents, the container can be reused to store other materials or repurposed into something different. In addition, if you buy a shipping container and decide later that you no longer need it, you can re-sell it and recoup your investment. All of our containers are available for both hire and sale.


Prices to hire

Prices for our dangerous goods containers vary depending on their condition and your container requirements. If you’d like to discuss a container for sale or hire, contact us to request a quote so we can accommodate your needs.
