40ft shipping container40ft shipping container internal

The 40-foot container is large and long enough for 6 or 7 fully grown men to lie head-to-toe and is suitable for storing the contents of 3 to 4 bedroom homes, from your washing machine and fridge to your furniture and beds. This container is also well suited to carrying business inventory or stock across the country, or just for safe storage. Corrugated steel walls make the containers strong & resistant to weather, theft and pests.  

We supply new and used shipping containers for sale and for hire. As one of Australia’s leading providers of shipping containers, we offer standard 40ft and high cube (for extra capacity) containers at competitive prices.

 

40ft shipping containers for sale.

A new shipping container will ensure quality and longevity, while a used container will save you money.

For cargo to be transported internationally, the container must have a valid CSC (Container Safety Convention) plate, which verifies that safety inspections have been performed. Our ‘New’ grade containers ensure CSC approval, as well as clean interiors.

While our ‘B’ grade containers may have marked interiors & some exterior corrosion, they remain windtight & watertight.  

For less critical applications, you may save cost with a ‘C’ grade container, which will show more advanced corrosion.
