Container Hire and Transport

How to Choose a Shipping Container Hire

It’s crucial that you pick the right container hire services to guarantee that your needs are always met and your money isn’t put into waste. In order to help you choose the perfect container for your needs as well as the company to offer you container hire and transport services, here are some tips you need to consider.

Keep your Location a Priority

Did you know that it’s more practical to search for a company, which is near to where you live for prompt and affordable delivery? There are some container hire and transport services that delivery for free and some charge a fewer fee when you’re nearer.

Prioritise the Company’s Reputation 

All shipping container hire and transport services providers promote their company as the best; however, it takes not just an advertisement to prove that it is true. A company who’s been in the business for a very long time knows the ins and outs of the market and they won’t sacrifice that hey established for a long time. 

Compare Prices

It would be an excellent idea to shop around your place and compare prices so you have some ideas of how much a shipping container would normally cost. Even though the most affordable container hire and transport is not at all times the best option, knowing the costs of different companies will offer you a better edge every time asking a company for a good deal.

Find the Appropriate Container Hire and Transport for your Freight

In case you didn’t know yet, shipping containers come in several sizes, starting from 10 feet to 48 feet long. The 20 feet is the most typical size accessible. Guarantee that you have enough area to accommodate the shipping container. You must allocate about 1.5 meters of additional space on every side to guarantee it fits.

Understand ISO Standard Sizing

If you’re planning to use a particular container for transporting the goods, you must follow to ISO standard sizing to prevent concerns with transporters. Meanwhile, if not, transporters might not be willing to carry your container.

Consider the Grade of your Shipping Container

Those used containers come in various grades depending on their condition. These include Grade A that means the container is in excellent condition, almost new. Grade B denotes the shipping container is still in better condition. While Grade C means the shipping is in a just condition.

Depending on how you’re going to use of your shipping container, you must consider any modifications or repairs, which will be done in your container.

Evy and Sid from your company provided me with a very professional service at a cost effective rate. Your business has shown me that purchasing items from Tasmania does no longer have to be restricted to the Melbourne metropolitan area to be cost effective.
