Benefits Of Shipping Container Hire

Shipping container rental or hire offers significant and wide ranging benefits when it comes to the budget requirements, storage capacity and accessibility needs of our customers.

The benefits of shipping container hire are:

  • Shipping container hire is cheaper and therefore, represents much better value than renting space in a traditional storage facility
  • Shipping containers are generally much larger than conventional self storage units which means more space and avoids you having to pay for multiple storage units.
  • The container is delivered by truck and forklift or tow-truck to you, which saves you the time and trouble of renting your own truck, transporting your goods and double handling inventory into and then back out of a traditional storage space. This also mitigates the likelihood of goods being damaged in the double handling process.
  • As you are only loading your goods once and unloading them once, your storage requirements are met, and you are saving time and money, which allows you to get on with the business of life.
  • Shipping containers give customers much more flexibility over the length of their rental, and of course, access is unlimited when the container is kept at their premises.
  • Customers can select the most appropriate storage service according to their specific needs. A shipping container is delivered and:
  1. Once full, the container is collected and housed at a secure storage facility for the duration of the storage requirements.
  2. You keep the container at your premises with unlimited access until you are ready for it to be transported and unloaded at its final destination.
  3. By using a premium storage company, you can upgrade your service to a serviced shipping container option. This means that you have experienced and professional removalists to pack, load and then unload and place your goods once your storage requirements are complete.
  • At a traditional storage facility, inevitably, you’ll encounter logistical issues like getting your goods into lifts, and upstairs all while complying with business or access hours. With a shipping container delivered directly to and kept onsite at your premises, you have unlimited access, all hours of the day.
  • With a versatility of shipping container sizes, you can choose a size of storage space tailored to your specific requirements. You won’t be wasting money renting unfilled space, or find yourself committing to an additional storage unit at the eleventh hour when your final boxes or goods won’t fit.
  • Premium storage companies will also provide felt furniture blankets and tie downs to secure your goods within the unit.
