Our containers are delivered using tilt tray, side loader or hi-ab trucks, so it’s important to know how much space you’ll need on your site. We will run you through a few questions when we're in contact to work out the best transport, but you can learn more about clearance requirements on our delivery page.

What do I need to do to book?

Please get in contact with us to obtain a quote. We would like to talk to you so we have a good understanding of your move and to advise you of any considerations. 

When using our self pack service you are placing a container on a short term hire. As part of the hire agreement we will require a credit card for any ongoing monthly hire charges should you wish to keep your shipping container longer than a month. Depending on where you are moving, there may be more items that you will need to complete. For example, if you're moving interstate you may need to complete a quarantine declaration for your transported goods. We will advise you of the process if applicable when you make your booking.
