Hired shipping containers are good for temporary static storage of goods, often used as extra storage space during renovations or to house temporary excess inventory. 

If you are looking to have a container for an extended period of time, you may want to consider getting a quote on the purchase of the container for comparison.

If modifications are desired, you will need to look at purchasing a container. Hired containers must be returned in the same condition as they were received, accounting for reasonable wear and tear.

Hiring can be a convenient option for short term needs

Hiring a container can be a no fuss solution for quick and economical storage. Sometimes extra storage space is only needed temporarily and one of the benefits of a shipping container hire is that it can be removed from site quickly when it is no longer needed.

With a smaller upfront cost some people prefer to hire a shipping container for a period of time to ensure they are getting their intended use from them before commiting to a larger purchase. This can be particularly true for more expensive specialised containers life refrigerated containers where many businesses opt for hiring over a purchase.

Hiring vs. Buying - 20ft High Cube Shipping Containers

If you’re considering using a 20ft High Cube Shipping Container for storage of your goods, you’ll no doubt come to the roadblock – buy or hire? Hiring provides most of the same benefits as purchase, without the upfront financial commitment. However, if you're looking to use the container for a considerable amount of time, it could be more economical in the long run to purchase a container. If you're looking to regularly transport or modify a the container, then hiring is not the right choice for you. Similarly, if you need a highly specialised container that doesn’t exist in our hire fleet, purchasing your container is more suitable.
