Types of Shipping Containers Available for Rent

Convenient and Versatile Storage Right Where You Want It

If you’ve ever had to box up all your stuff, load it into a car or truck, drive it to a storage facility, and then unload it (often into an elevator – ground floor storage is hard and expensive to come by!) and then make it all fit into a tiny, expensive space, you’ll soon realize the convenience and ease that shipping container storage can bring.

You’ll realize it again when you need to go and get something out of storage as well (ever bought a new radiator, rather than have to face the storage centre? Many people have.)

And you’ll realize it again when you spending your precious weekends at the storage facility, trying to sort through your stuff because it costs so much to store!

With a shipping container there’s plenty of room for all sorts of storage. No loading onto a truck or into a car – you just walk your goods right in. And when you need something, it’s right there. How easy is that?

Make Your Life Easy By Hiring a Shipping Container

There are many reasons why you may need to hire a shipping container rather than buying. If you’re renovating your house, a container is a great way to remove all the furniture and furnishings from each room as it’s being done. And if you’re moving house, decluttering is always easier when you have somewhere to store the clutter while you sort it, so use a shipping container to sort out all your goods before you move. Going travelling for a year or two and renting out your house? You don’t have to get rid of all your goods or store them in an expensive storage facility. A long-term rental on a shipping container is all you need, and we can provide it for you quickly and easily.

We Arrange Everything for You

At Port Containers, we hire to the general public, and to business and industrial sectors like construction, mining, rail, and shipping as well. Hiring a shipping container is a quick, efficient and cost-effective alternative to buying, especially if you only need a container for a short time. Another benefit is that the delivery, removal and maintenance are all taken care of by us. Our container rentals are serviced and cleaned before dispatch so that your goods are kept in the best condition possible. The storage containers are also available in a range of colors, so you can choose a container to suit you.

What Can You Store in a Shipping Container?

A better question to ask would be what can’t you store in a shipping container! You can store just about anything. Examples include office equipment and office files; furniture and furnishings; the contents of your garage so your car can fit again; your car, so you can use the garage as a workshop or shed; craft or project items; seasonal goods like radiators, air-conditioning units, ski gear and camping gear; the kids’ stuff that they won’t take with them when they leave home but won’t let you throw away; jet skis, quad bikes and boats; garden equipment; farm or ranch goods…whatever needs protecting or storing out of the way is perfect to store in a shipping container.

What Size Shipping Container Will You Need?

Estimating the size you need for all your storage needs can be tricky, but we can help out there. Our friendly staff can help answer any questions that you may have about how much a shipping container will fit. With all your stuff, you might think you need a 40 foot size, but you may be pleasantly surprised at how much a 20 foot size shipping container fits. Or you might need a bigger container than you thought! Give us a call on 1888 307 2420 or use the quote form and we can help you find out everything you need to know about storing your goods in a shipping container.

Short Term and Long Term Rentals Available

Whether you need short term or long term container rental, let us know and we can sort if all out for you. A week, two weeks, two years … it’s up to you. If you want a shipping container for an extended time, you may be better off buying, but for short to medium term solutions, hiring or renting a container is a great option. If you decide you want to buy a shipping container, we can certainly help out with that too! We also offer storage containers for sale at a competitive price, all with a money back guarantee.

Delivery Direct to You

Delivery of your shipping container is easy. You may think a 20 foot or 40 foot container is difficult to transport, but it’s not. Remember, shipping containers are built on the premise that they can be transferred from warehouse to truck to ship or rail very easily. Delivery does vary depending on the type of shipping container you are hiring, and we will need to talk to you about your site before we decide which method we will use (Hiab crane, side loader, or tilt tray) to arrange delivery. But in general, delivery is very straightforward.
