SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE & HIRE
Welcome to Port Shipping Containers (formally ‘Port Container Services’). We sell, hire and modify a huge range of shipping containers in the industrial and commercial sectors, as well as offering shipping containers for sale nationwide to the general public. We are a 100% Australian-owned company and pride ourselves on manufacturing high-quality products, and providing friendly service and fast delivery throughout Australia and Asia. So whether you’re looking to buy or hire a specific type of container, or else modify a container to your own unique needs, we are here to help. With a large range of shipping containers in stock, and decades of industry experience, Port are your one stop shop for all your shipping container requirements.
Satisfied Container Customers – Both Large and Small
It probably won’t come as much of a surprise to learn that satisfied Port customers include the likes of the Australian Defence Force, Boral, Myer, Caltex, Qantas and Coca Cola (to name just a few). But it might surprise you to know that shipping containers are not solely the domain of corporate behemoths and multinational mining conglomerates, with many hundreds of containers being bought or hired each month by individuals or families who have far more modest needs (and budgets!). With new and used shipping containers available at surprisingly affordable prices.
Maybe you’re an individual looking to buy a shipping container for a storage shed, garden shed, art studio or workshop? Or perhaps you’re an Australian small business with a groovy idea for using a container to launch a one-of-a-kind outdoor coffee shop or snack bar? Or else you might be a local business owner looking to modify a shipping container to make an eye-catching trade show stand for maximum impact?
No Job Too Big. No Job Too Small
At the other end of the scale, you could be someone who works in procurement for a huge construction or mining company, and need a few hundred shipping containers for sale, all delivered to your work-site, in double-quick time? Because that’s okay too, as Port can easily handle any container requirements you have. Be they large or small, modified or off the factory floor, Port have a solution to match both your budget and your specifications. And of course if you need to ship goods or cargo to some exotic far-flung overseas destination, safely and securely, then Port are the only phone call you’ll ever have to make.
SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE | BUY CONTAINERS
Port offer a huge selection of shipping containers for sale. In addition to selling the standard General Purpose, High Cube and Side Opening containers, we are proud to be Australia’s specialist supplier and manufacturer of pre-modified shipping containers. From site offices, first aid rooms, portable accommodation, kitchens, lunch rooms, and switch rooms; to storage containers, dangerous goods containers, training containers and ablution blocks. Whatever your work-site or property requires, Port can modify a container to perfectly match your needs.
Shipping Container Modification
Separate to our pre-modified range, we also love creating amazing, one-of-a-kind, shipping container conversionsfor our clients. From an environmentally-friendly bush retreat; to custom-built, transportable living facilities for FIFO workers; to a secure storage facility for dangerous goods; a transportable computer server room; a pop-up travelling stage complete with in-built storage; a branded display centre for trade fairs; a unique and quirky coffee shop; an industrial themed restaurant and bar; a portable media centre for Tough Mudder events…these are just a few of the permanent, semi-permanent and temporary installations that our shipping containers have been utilised for.
Add Container Accessories to Create a Customised Shipping Container Design
Port have a long list of container accessories that you can choose from to customise your order, such as windows, doors, air conditioning, insulation, lighting, flooring, kitchens, bathrooms, refrigeration, etc. And with one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia on site, we can build and modify versatile and customised containers to your exact requirements.
Buying a Used Shipping Container for Shipping Cargo
Ironically, the last thing that comes to mind for many people when thinking about a shipping container is actual shipping something in it! Of course if you do need to ship cargo securely and efficiently overseas, we have dozens of container designs for that too. Our standard range includes general purpose 10 foot, 20 foot or 40 foot shipping containers, as well as high cubes and side loading containers. Or if you prefer you can choose from the specialised range of open tops, flat racks, refrigerated and insulated containers we have in stock.
Shipping Container Shelters | Container Shelters
Container shelters are an impressive way to turn a couple of shipping containers into an extraordinarily simple yet effective transportable storage and protection facility. Which is a great alternative to building a large, expensive permanent warehouse on-site. Take a look at our container shelters page, and you’ll see the amazing versatility and innovation that can be created with a little bit of out of the box thinking (or should that be ‘out of the container’ thinking!).
Nationwide Container Delivery
With depots situated all around Australia, Port offer a fast and efficient nationwide and international delivery service. And depending on where you want your container sited, a Tilt Tray, Side Loader, or Hiab crane will be used to deliver and position your shipping container per your order. And if you already have the equipment to off-load the container yourself, semi-trailer delivery is also an option.
