Our Range of Shipping Containers for Hire

Our stainless steel metal sealed containers come in four sizes – we have 8, 10, 20 & 40 foot shipping containers for rent and they are all waterproof, windproof and impervious to vermin. They are equipped with padlocks, padlock protectors, felt blankets, wall and roof tie-rails.

Please check the external dimensions to determine the best size for you and to ensure that it will fit into the space you’ve allocated. Also consider the internal dimensions to ascertain that there is enough space for your belongings. For more information about the dimensions, capacities and features of our shipping containers, please click here.

With us, size is actually not an issue. We can provide an extra-large unit so you don’t have to hire several small containers. We even have ISO secure sea containers for freight in case you are looking for one. No need to visit multiple shipping container dealers & yards, we’ll help you find a shipping container that’s perfect for your needs.

Benefits of Mobile Shipping Container Hire

Whether you intend to go for long term or short term container hire, there are a myriad of benefits when it comes to your budget requirements, storage capacity and accessibility needs.

Budget and cashflow friendly options, renting a shipping container is cheaper and therefore offers greater value than renting a traditional storage unit. Shipping containers are generally bigger than traditional self-storage units so you’ll get more space and avoid having to pay for multiple storage units.

More flexibility – many home and business owners need more flexible shipping container solutions and don’t necessarily need to purchase a container. If you need temporary storage space, storage transport for moving house, or if you frequently change storage capacity, it makes more sense to rent a shipping container for the period that suits you.

Immediate access – renting a container means it’s readily available when you need it. Access becomes unlimited if the container is kept at your premises. This is ideal for seasonal businesses and during periods when you need more storage space. To learn more about the benefits of shipping container hire, please click here.
