ThE EVOLUTION OF SHIPPING CONTAINERS
TIGER SHIPPING containers TYPES EXPLAINED
High Cube Containers – The Tall Option : A High Cube container is taller than a normal container by about 1 foot (0.3m), thus making it the ideal container for storing and transporting awkward shaped cargo that doesn’t quite fit into a run-of-the-mill General Purpose container.
Refrigerated Containers – When Cold Isn’t Cold Enough : A Refrigerated Container (sometimes called a ‘Reefer’) is a General Purpose container which has been modified to have refrigerated units and insulation installed to keep the temperature frosty.
Insulated Containers – Too Cool for School : An Insulated Container is a decommissioned Refrigerated Container that no longer has the refrigerated unit power it, but still has the insulation.
Flat Rack Containers – When Big Isn’t Big Enough : Flat Rack containers don’t have a top at all, and only have two sides on the short ends. This makes them ideal for transporting oversized items.
Side Opening Containers – The Ideal Way to Load and Unload Your Cargo : A Side Opening container has one long side that can fully opened, providing extra loading space and easier access. This makes them the perfect container if you need to get to your goods on a regular basis, or else if you need to store or transport something that won’t fit through normal front facing container doors.
Open Top Containers – Loading and Unloading from the Top : An Open Top container is similar to a General Purpose container but comes with a removable canvass or tarpaulin top. This provides versatility when transporting goods of different sizes.
shipping container for sale & hire
Hiring a container is naturally a more cost-effective option, with Tiger Shipping Containers hiring boxes from as little as $130 + GST per month, with no lock in contract. This is great if you only need the container for a short period of time. Hiring also offers the convenience of not having to worry about the maintenance of the container, as we will handle any cleaning or repairs needed after you’ve finished your rental period. Ultimately, the choice between buying and hiring a container depends on your individual circumstance. If you’re looking for a long-term solution and have the funds available, buying a new container is the gift that keeps on giving. But if you only need a container for a short period of time, or else have budget constraints, hiring a container is the no-fuss way to go.
