Yes, the freight containers are fitted with double locking bars which can be secured with a padlock. If
required the units can be fitted with a Lock Box which protects the padlock. It is the responsibility of the customer to fit a suitable padlock.
Yes, all cargo containers leave the depot in a wind and watertight condition and will have been cleaned inside prior to delivery to your site. When you have finished with the shipping container we ask that you return it to us in the original condition.
Our shipping containers are available in a range of colours although the majority of our fleet are
green or blue. If you require freight containers in a particular colour or livery then we can arrange painting and decalling services as appropriate.
Yes, shipping containers can be delivered to most locations. There
is a charge for this service.
We aim for next day delivery for account customers. For new customers delivery will be as soon as possible after payment is received. Delivery schedules are reliant on suitable transport being found and as a result we cannot guarantee next day delivery.
Containers are delivered by truck. For customers without
container handling facilities we will arrange for the containers to
be delivered on a lorry with hydraulic lifting equipment capable of loading and unloading the container.
The container needs to sit on a firm level base. Please ensure that this is solid enough to take the weight of the container. There will also need to be enough room next to the site for the vehicle to park to unload. Finally check that there are no overhead cables
or other height limitations that might prevent the lorry mounted crane from unloading the container.
Various lease periods are available from short term leases of as
little as 30 days to longer term leases of 3 to 5 years.
Yes but the sale price may be influenced by the age of the
container and the prevailing depreciation policy.
This may be possible depending on the age and type of the freight container. Remember that factors such as changes in market value, handling charges and any repairs required will be taken into account when calculating any buy back amount.
