About Container Traders

Expert knowledge with a focus on service

Container Traders – More than Containers

Container Traders have been selling & hiring shipping containers on the Australian domestic market since 2016, but it’s the innovation of the secondary applications that makes Container Traders more than containers.

No doubt you have seen the explosion in the shipping container housing movement, and you only have to browse Pinterest for 2 minutes to see Shipping Containers are now woven into the fabric of design and are now the darling of architectural upcycling! The shipping container is much more than economical, convenient, and secure alternative to storage sheds and no longer considered the dirty, offensive alternative!

The shipping container’s popularity and mainstream adoption hasn't even begun to scratch the surface. The uniformity of Shipping Containers structural integrity has seen them adopted as a real-life Lego blocks! The container’s value for money, eco friendliness, speed of construction, amazing aesthetics, versatility, and off grid capabilities make the possibilities only limited by your imagination.

The team at Container Traders have an intricate understanding of the do’s, don’ts & tolerances when modifying containers, so if you have a project you would like to discuss, get in touch with our team today.

We had been talking of purchasing a 10foot container for storage at our home. We called Container Traders after being told by other organisations that we wouldn't be able to obtain one for months and they were able to deliver one the next day. The process was very smooth facilitate by Amy who was friendly and very efficient. Early the next morning we had the container in our yard. The container was in excellent condition and freshly painted. We highly recommend Container Traders

Awesome company to deal with - John was very helpful with great customer service. I have had 1 container for over 2 years with no issues. Highly recommend them.

John, Feb 2022

Thanks to Amy from Container Traders for the advice and support in the purchase of our shipping container. It arrived yesterday and was in excellent condition. We would highly recommend this company and are already looking at purchasing a smaller container from them. Amy made the whole process a wonderful stress free purchase. Thankyou very much Chris and Pam, Gnotuk Vic

Matthew and the team were brilliant. I was nervous about ordering a container due to widely reported scams but to get a phone call from the managing director on his personal mobile was very reassuring. Everything went smoothly. The driver called a few times to update me on delivery schedule and put the container exactly where I wanted. Couldn't be happier.

We needed a 40ft container quickly for my business, Fork Force Australia. Right from my initial contact the entire transaction was seamless and smooth. Nick was in contact almost straight away and made everything run great. They even delivered our container earlier than expected. I would highly recommend these guys.
