SCF sells a wide range of containers in Adelaide. Compared to some other states, block sizes are generally larger and enable customers to store anything from 8ft to 40ft containers with ease.
Larger containers are particularly popular for additional storage on large residential, rural blocks or industrial sites, where space is easy to come by. Drive through the foothills and you will likely see containers scattered by fence lines, on drive ways and near sheds. Think Crafers, Stirling, Norton Summit, Montacute, Upper Sturt, McLaren Vale, and so on.
In suburbs, 10ft and 20ft containers are more commonly purchased. This is mainly due to the limited space available. Sites with easy access tend to be the most popular for container sales. If you see them on a driveway, chances are they have been hired.
Container hire is popular in Adelaide because of the short term storage requirements of many people.
House renovations, relocation or temporary storage until people can find a suitable new home are common reasons to hire. Charged at a daily rate, the initial outlay is much lower than buying a container. With prices lower than the cost of a coffee a day, shipping container hire makes sense.
Interestingly, container hire is also often significantly cheaper than the prefab portable storage style options too. Containers are also more sturdy, secure and weatherproof.
