How To Buy Used and New 10′, 20′ or 40′ Shipping Containers in Melbourne

From Meltone West to Rosebud Whether you plan to buy or rent a 10′, 20′ or 40′ Shipping Container for portable storage, overseas shipping, or as temporary mobile storage, reading this may help.

Delivery of your container is something you need to consider , we have tilt trays , side loaders and crane trucks running around Melbourne. Please be aware of where you want the doors of a container located when it comes off the truck. Considering this will assist us in loading it in the correct direction when it leaves our depot. Tilt tray operation is simple the container slides off the tray of the truck to the rear it is lowered down gently and winched up with a hydraulic winch,
side loader operation you will need to know that almost all side loaders load and unload to the driver’ side (not both sides). Crane trucks have either a rear mounted crane at the rear of the trailer or a front mounted crane at the front of the trailer.

If you Talk to our Melbourne sales staff to determine exactly what you need in a 10′, 20′ or 40′ Shipping Container, you can narrow your search considerably from the start. In choosing Shipping containers, here are a few attributes you’ll want to consider in advance:

Are you looking for a 10 ‘ 20′ or 40′ unit, just so you know there is no such thing as a ISO Standard 10′ they are all cut and shut jobs from 20 and 40′ containers thus they are more expensive than 20′ Shipping Containers.

If you are after maximum storage bang for your buck then a 40′ is usually the way to go in the last 2 decades that we have been selling containers 40′ units have never been twice the price of 20′ units They are usually only 30 to 50 % more expensive.

At sea a container deals with some very fierce conditions on land and in static storage the container really has much of a life of retirement by contrast. It’s important to understand that a 20′ container is usually rated to carry around 24 tones, most domestic applications in and around Melbourne will never come close to that. 40’ containers are usually rated at about 30 tones. One tip, it really helps to ventilate the sub floor of a container when it is in static storage , the easiest way to do that purchasing two treated pine railway sleepers and putting them at each end of the container as per the photographs to buy them you can contact your nearest landscaping supply store here is a list of the ones in the Melbourne Metro area.
