Buying Shipping Containers

Investing in a shipping container is a sensible choice if you have a long-term need for one. Not only this, shipping containers are proven to be very flexible and versatile with more and more creative uses being shared every day.

Who would benefit the most from purchasing shipping containers?

Some examples include:

  • Companies shipping goods overseas in need of cargo storage
  • Schools in need of outdoor equipment storage (for P.E classes and athletic goods)
  • A hospital requiring a staff room, canteen or any extra spaceĀ 
  • Somebody looking to set up a private office at home or in a commercial spaceĀ 
  • Farming facilities in need of storage spaceĀ 

Ultimately, if you have a long-term need for a shipping container, buying shipping containers is a much smarter choice than renting them and is far more economical.

Renting Shipping Containers

If you think about it simply, it doesnā€™t make a lot of sense to buy a shipping container if you havenā€™t a long-term need for one. You may be on a temporary project and only need it for 8 weeks. In this case, renting a shipping container is the perfect solution for your needs.Ā 

Who would benefit the most from renting shipping containers?

Some examples include:

  • Construction sites that need temporary storage or canteen facilities
  • Retail environments that need extra seasonal storageĀ 
  • Home renovation projects that require a safe space for personal belongingsĀ
