Things to Consider When Renting a Container

Weekly Rate
We always offer a minimum hire period of 26 weeks from £10.00 per week plus VAT for a 20ft container. That’s a lot of secure container space for a low price and we invite you to see our rates for the different sizes available for hire.

Shipping Container Size
We offer two sizes: 20ft and 40ft long. Again, the prices vary depending on the size of the shipping container required and the length of the lease and you can find out everything you need to know by clicking the links above.

The Delivery Location
You will be required to pay for transport and offload of your shipping container hire, both to and from your site. Transport prices will start from £250.00 plus VAT each way (delivery and collection each). The delivery cost of your shipping container for hire will depend on how close you are to our depots (our depots are located in Felixstowe, Grays in Essex, Birmingham, Middlesborough, Liverpool & Southampton).

Your Site
You will need to ensure that whoever you hire a shipping container from is aware of these obstacles. Please do have a look at the video below that shows you how a container is offloaded from the vehicle. Please remember if you are doing building work around the container, the area must still be clear for the container collection.

Damage Incurred to the Container
When you hire a shipping container, you will be responsible for the insurance of the container whilst it is in your possession. There will be a ‘write off value’ for the container on our Hire agreement. The container must be in the same condition it was when you first hired it, so any damage or cleaning required will be billed to you at the end of the lease.

Locking System
We provide shipping containers for hire that are fitted with a Lockbox (shrouded area on the double doors, where you can’t get bolt croppers at the padlock). The lockbox is included in the rental price. However, the padlocks are sold from £85 each plus VAT.

Condensation in shipping containers can be controlled by using Absorpoles, these are calcium chloride based devices that are used to control the levels of moisture in the container. This is particularly important if you plan to store valuable items that stand to be damaged by dampness.

Ultimately, we’ve got you covered no matter what your shipping container hire needs look like. why not call us today so that we can provide a quote for your needs.
