Why would you buy a shipping container instead of hiring one? There are a few reasons why it might be best to buy one.
Choose your exact container
When you buy a container, you can choose the exact model from our depot. We can provide detailed current photos to help you choose. Depending on each depot, you can also book a visit to see the containers you're interested in. If you hire, you have less choice, and will often receive a new or near new container for the duration of your hire.
It is yours forever
Rather than paying a monthly fee to keep your container, your container is yours forever. One fee is all you need to pay.
You can modify it
Want to paint it a different colour, add shelves, put on a roller door? You can do this with your own container. Whilst we do have access to a range of hire containers with modifications, you have complete freedom to modifying your own container. Painting the exterior colour is a popular modification that owners often undertake.
