Shipping Container Q&A

How much does hiring or buying a shipping container cost

The cost of shipping containers varies depending on whether the container is new or second-hand and whether you buy or hire it. Another factor is the cost to transport the container from the depot to your location.

Why do shipping container prices fluctuate so much?

The global shipping container supply is based on market demand. If the demand for shipping containers is high, prices will naturally increase.  In the aftermath of Covid-19, we have seen a global shipping container shortage. As a result, prices have surged and are expected to remain at an all-time high until late 2023.

What is your refund policy?

After more than 45 years in business, we take great pride in our excellent customer satisfaction rates. Should you, however, not be happy with your shipping container, please do not hesitate to contact us via 1800 072 039 or send us an email.

Why should I buy a shipping container?

Whether you have goods to transport or require extra storage, buying a cargo container will give you flexibility. With new and used containers available, you’re sure to find the perfect solution for your budget.

Why should I hire a shipping container?

Do you only need a container for a month or two? Hiring shipping containers is the go-to option for temporary and storage hire. Tiger Containers offers delivery across Australia and will arrange the pick up at the end of the agreed rental period.

What size shipping container should I get?

Tiger Containers currently offers three sizes of shipping and cargo containers: 10ft, 20ft and 40ft. Which size and type of container suit your needs best depends on the intended use and where it will be placed. If you’re not sure what size container to hire or buy, our friendly team will be happy to discuss options with you.

What are shipping containers made of?

Our shipping containers are made from Corten steel and have plywood floors. 

The container walls are corrugated, which gives them additional strength.
