SECOND HAND SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE – UNDERSTANDING IT ALL
With so many varieties of second hand Shipping Containers for sale there are two key questions you need to answer before settling on a particular type.
Question 1: What are you intending to store?
It is important to understand the container grading system and which one is the most suitable for your individual storage need. The container grading system works on a scale.
These grades help to ensure your goods are stored in an appropriate unit for your circumstances.
The Container Grade Guide on the next page gives an overview of what the shipping containers are like in each grade and gives examples of items that can be stored in them. In the past our sales staff have used the terms A, B, C and D grade but these are not prescriptive measures as there are no industry wide benchmarks for grading. Accordingly, we found that the container industry differs in how these terms are applied and therefore creating confusion for customers. The official shipping and ports industry around Australia does not use the above grading system but do as per below which is based on the industry recognised IICL standards.
Question 2: How much storage space do you require?
10, 20 or 40ft standard (2.59m) or high cube (2.89m) containers are the most common sizes. A 20ft container can hold 33 cubic metres – the equivalent of a 2-3 bedroom house with normal furniture. A 40’ GP (standard height) holds 67.7 cubic metres and a 40’ high cube holds 76 cubic metres. Note: most residential blocks are too small to accommodate 40’ containers.
TO HIRE OR NOT TO HIRE
Our hire containers are in premium condition and well maintained. They are good for short term or long-term storage solutions if you do not want to purchase the container. If you intend to hire long term it is often more cost effective to purchase.
