Shipping Container Rental

Port Containers USA rent new and used shipping containers to government departments, large corporations, small businesses and the general public. With container rental prices starting at less than most people spend on their daily Espresso Frappuchino at Starbucks, there has never been a better time to rent a new or used 20′ or 40′ shipping container! With fast delivery to all 50 states, Port can transport your rented shipping container right to your door. Often in as little as 24 hours.

Rent a Shipping Container for Just $2.50 a Day

Our shipping container storage hire starts at just $2.50 a day. Yup, you read that correctly. Just $2.50 a day! Compare that to the cost of self storage and you’ll realise that renting a container from Port Containers makes great financial sense. Plus keep in mind that we deliver your shipping container directly to you, so you have access to your belongings whenever you want, and don’t have to drive to a self-storage facility to access your goods, hoping beyond hope that the storage facility is actually open when you need access to your stuff!

Types of Shipping Containers Available for Rent

As America’s favorite container rental company, we offer general purpose and insulated shipping containers for hire in 20 foot and 40 foot sizes. Windproof, waterproof and made from Corten steel construction with doors that open to a full 270°, our shipping containers are all maintained on a regular basis to ensure that they are of the highest quality and will protect your goods safely and securely.

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 expensive and hard to come by!) and then make it all fit into a tiny, cube of storage space, you’ll soon realize the convenience and ease that shipping container storage can bring. You’ll realize it again if you have to waste your precious weekend traipsing to the storage facility to get something, when you’d rather be relaxing on the couch or spending the day at the park with the kids.

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 to the container. And when you need something, it’s right there. How easy is that?

Shipping Container Hire

There are many reasons why you may need to hire a shipping container rather than buying one. 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.

Or maybe you’re going travelling for a year or two and renting out your house? If so, 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, utility and shipping. 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.

What Can You Store in a Shipping Container?

A better question to ask would be what can’t you store in a shipping container! Because you can store just about anything in a shipping container. Examples include office equipment and office files; furniture and furnishings; the contents of your garage so you can actually park your car in it again; the actual car could be stored in it, so you can use the garage as a workshop; craft or project items can be stored; 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 container you need for all your storage can be tricky, but we can help out there. Our friendly customer service 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, if loaded correctly. Simply give us a call on 1888 307 2420 or use the quote form and we can help you understand everything you need to know about storing your goods in a shipping container.

Short Term and Long Term Rentals Available

How long do you need to rent your shipping container for? Let us know and we can sort if all out for you. Six months, a year, a decade? It’s up to you. Of course, if you want a 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. But if you decide you want to buy a shipping container, we can certainly help out with that too, as we sell thousands of containers every month.

Delivery Direct to You

Delivery of your shipping container is easy. You may think a 20 foot or 40 foot heavy steel 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 surprisingly straightforward.
