Trust Tiger Containers For Affordable Used And New Shipping Containers In Victoria

Obviously, brand new shipping container has it’s advantages: it is not only spotless but also has no scratches or dents, and is free of unpleasant smells from previous cargo.

Second-hand shipping containers, on the other hand, are more affordable.   Thus, they are the right option for repurposing for many uses such as an on-site office for construction companies, or as storage solutions at the workplace.

When Should You Hire Or Buy A Shipping Container In Victoria?

Your intended use of the shipping container is the primary determining factor when it comes to hiring or buying a shipping container.  If you only want to use the container for storing goods, as a temporary site office, or for similar temporary purposes, it is more advisable that you hire the container.

However, if your need revolves around more permanent use like converting the container into an additional space around your home, then you are better off buying the container instead of hiring it.  Hiring here will cost you more in the long run, obviously.

Whatever your choice is, Tiger Containers has you covered.  We offer both new and used shipping containers, and they can be bought entirely or on rental basis.  We are also available to handle all your custom requirements, simply contact us today.  We are the right supplier for all your shipping container needs in Victoria.

Different Types Of Shipping Containers

Shipping containers come in different kinds, and they include:

General Purpose Shipping Containers – This type of container are very popular and are used mostly as a cargo transporter or a storage facility.

High Cube Shipping Containers – They are slightly taller than the general purpose containers (a difference of an extra foot).  Thus, it is the perfect fit for the cargoes that are a bit taller.

Dangerous Goods Container – These containers are specifically designed to conveniently transport and store hazardous goods, including harmful chemicals, acids, and specific electronic devices.

The flat rack container – Just like the flat pack furniture, the flat rack container has walls, which when collapsed, make storage and transport of cargo easier.

Refrigerated Containers – These are suitable for perishable cargo which must be kept refrigerated while being moved.

Temperature-Controlled Containers – Also called reefer containers, these containers have an inbuilt thermostat that regulates the temperature inside the container.

Open-Top Containers – These are made for cargos that are loaded using a crane.  The opened top makes loading via crane easy, and after loading, the roof is covered with a removable tarp.

Side Opening Containers – If you ever have to load a cargo via a forklift, then a side-opening container is the right option.  It is a bit wider, and the side opening allows much easier access for bigger cargo.

Office and Site Containers – These containers are explicitly modified to be fit for use as on-site offices.  They are popular in the construction industry and can fit into places where a temporary, highly-secured, and mobile office space is needed.

Top Shipping Container Modifications Ideas

Many people do not know that shipping containers can perform a whole lot of other functions apart from transporting cargo and storing goods.  The versatility of shipping containers is so great that they can be shaped into any of the following:

  • a granny flat or tiny house
  • a personal workspace for businesses or homes
  • a unique store or roadside kitchen
  • a durable garden shed or great man caves
  • a portable on-site toilet block
  • a simple moveable restaurant
  • a moveable and mini office
  • a pop-up shop
  • and more

The options here are unlimited; however, whatever your specifications are, we have the right shipping container that meets such specifications at Tiger Containers, and relatively affordable prices.

  • Furniture
  • Loading Ramps
  • Interior and Exterior Lightings
  • Electricity

Shipping Containers And Their Sizes

While there are many sizes of shipping containers, we will be considering the three most common of them here.  These include:

  • the 10-footer
  • the 20-footer
  • the 40-footer

The 20-foot containers are known to be versatile and relatively affordable, hence their popularity among users.  The 40-footer is specially designed to handle big cargo.  And the 10-footer is for individuals on a budget and interested in a small container.
