Container Hire in ADELAIDE

If your needs are relatively short-term, or if you have a single project in mind, container hire might be the best bet for you. When you rent a container, we can deliver this unit to you and then pick it up once you are done. This way you don’t have to commit to buying a container you may not need, long term. This is all part of the service we offer to our customers.

Shipping Container for Sales

Some of our Adelaide shipping container customers have needs that are considerably more long-term however, and will have to buy a single container (rather than hire) to fulfil them. Or else they may be a large multinational customer working in the construction industry, the mining industry, the retail industry, or any of a hundred different business verticals. Because their needs often require dozens, or hundreds of containers on site. With many containers modified to fit their specific requirements.

40ft, 20ft, 10ft containers

Tiger Shipping Containers Adelaide specialise in modifying and customising 40ft, 20ft and 10ft containers into, well…just about anything! From container cafes, to bars, to site offices, to reefers, to container homes, pools, kitchens, food trucks, portable lunch rooms et al. If it can be made out of a shipping container, then we’ve got the modification team to turn your dream into a reality!

Refrigerated & Insulated Containers

Containers were originally designed to transport or ‘ship’ goods. This is why they come containers come in standard, making it easy for multiple containers to be stacked, stored and transported. Which is why many of our Adelaide customers decide to use their containers in this way for interstate or international freight. A tough and durable construction makes a container the ideal way to transport items. More sophisticated features can be built into the container, such as refrigerated shipping container units (or reefers maintain), which maintain a steady temperature to protect valuable or perishable items during transit. Or insulated containers, which are refrigerated containers that no longer have or require a working refrigeration unit installed.

Container Storage Solutions

The robust nature of a shipping container also makes it great for storing items over a longer period of time. Many of our South Australian customers choose shipping containers for exactly this purpose, with protecting their belongings with a heavy-duty steel container being the ideal long term storage option. Some types of items may be classified as hazardous or dangerous in South Australia. These items will need to be stored in a specially designated and marked container, in accordance with Australian law and regulations on handling dangerous goods. Fortunately, we offer Dangerous Goods Containers for just such a purpose!

Container For Construction

If you are planning a construction job, or other projects in South Australia, you need to consider the facilities your staff and/or attendees will need on the site. South Australian law also requires certain concessions and provisions be made to ensure everyone on your worksite remains safe, comfortable and with adequate facilities on hand. This may require you to include ablution blocks, workrooms, portable accommodation etc. All of which can be made using specially modified shipping containers. Container site offices are extremely popular, and are often the first order we get from a company’s procurement division, when setting up their worksite. This being critical infrastructure without which a worksite will grind to a halt!

A Range of Other Applications

Whatever you need at your worksite or business, a shipping container can fit the bill. Our customers use their container units to create meeting rooms, temporary exhibit spaces, bars, kitchens, and a range of other structures. How you use your container for your Adelaide project is completely up to you.
At Tiger Shipping Containers Adelaide, we can deliver your container to you quickly. Often in as little as 24 hours! We site the transport and site the container, per your requirements, and if hiring rather than buying a container, we collect them again when you are finished your container hire term
