A 20ft container is large enough to hold the contents of an average 3 bedroom home. Our containers are intermodal, meaning that they are standardised and can be moved by ship, road or rail without the need to remove your cargo along the way.

As one of Australia’s largest suppliers of shipping containers, we offer 20ft containers in standard & high cube (taller, with more headroom) sizes, both for sale and for hire.

Want a shipping container shorter term, at small daily rates? Rent one.

If you prefer a shorter term option, rather hire an intermodal shipping container for a period of time above 30 days that suits your need. Talk to one of our experienced sales people; they’ll guide you toward the most suitable hire price and container specification for you.

 

Need something smaller than 20 feet, or larger, or a container with a side-door?

We also offer a mini shipping container, available in more compact sizes. If you have more goods to transport or store then see our roomy 40ft containers.

Our side-door containers make loading and unloading simple, by folding back completely to allow access to the inside along the full length of the container.

Containers with shelves or other modifications are also available.      

 

We cater nationally.

We sell & rent shipping containers throughout Australia, including Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Darwin, Sydney & Perth, via our national depot network, providing support at a local level.
