Hiring a Shipping Container is a cost effective way to store your equipment, and the beauty of hire? It’s a minimum of 1 month contract, after this – its up to you how long you keep the container! We work to ensure your budget is kept & your cost is at a minimum.

Our priority is to supply you with the best type of product for your storage requirements. We can modify the container for additional doors in the end or side wall of the unit, for a little more excess. We can add vents, windows to create air flow throughout the unit. We can prime, and paint the container too if you would like it to match the roof or fencing on the property. The sky is the limit with Container Traders!
CAN I STORE THE CONTAINER AT THE DEPOT?
We can arrange storage in a third party holding depot for you from as little as $4.50 per day until you are ready for the Shipping Container to be delivered to your new home.
ARE THERE ANY COUNCIL REGULATIONS?
Each council is different locally in every state. A Shipping Container is however a non permanent structure on the property, and completely removable by truck. Container Traders recommend contacting your local council and asking the question prior to organising your container. Most councils won’t need you to apply. However, in some cases you will be required to put in an application.
IF IT’S GOING ON A TRAIN, DO I NEED ANY EXTRA PAPERWORK?
If you are purchasing the Shipping Container, please keep in mind that the unit must be in structurally good condition to be certified for the rail. Container Traders have surveyors in our depots that can certify the container for you for 12 months prior to it leaving the yard to be delivered. Certifying a Shipping Container for rail or shipping transit is an additional $150.00 +GST Australia wide. However, we do this paperwork for you.
WHAT TYPE OF TRUCKS ARE THERE?
We have tilt trays, side-loaders, hi-ab cranes, tilt semi’s and flat bed available Australia wide!
HOW MUCH ROOM DO THE TRUCKS NEED TO POSITION THE CONTAINER?
The vehicle will require a minimum of 3m width upon entry to the property, 15m length for a 20’ tilt tray delivery and 20m length for a tilt semi. A side-loader is approximately the size of a semi trailer, so a sufficient amount of space is needed to allow for the truck to offload the container to the drivers side of the truck.
Container Traders have arranged the removal and relocation of shipping containers on many occasions, all successfully delivered to our clients new homes, work sites and office removals. Whilst we don’t organise the actual removalists, we find giving out clients the time to pack the containers at your leisure makes the moving process a whole lot easier for you.
