5 Reasons For Container Hire

Container hiring provides a fantastic option for those wanting a temporary storage or transport solution. In this article, we will discuss the top 5 reasons why hiring a container might be right for you.

1.One-off, seasonal use

If you simply need to transport something once or store any items temporarily, then hiring is the best option for you. This means you don’t have to deal with selling the container at the end and allows you the flexibility to choose individual time frames that fit best.

It is important to determine what your needs are in order to ascertain whether or not hiring a container will work for you. If the items you are transporting or storing are seasonal, then it makes sense to hire instead of purchasing. You can hire a container during your peak times and don’t have to worry about storing or selling the container during non-peak times.

2.Temporary storage

Are you moving, renovating or building a house? Hiring a container provides a great place to temporarily store all your household items. Safe, warm and dry, you can easily store all your furniture together in one space with a range of different sizes to choose from.

Excess stock can take up a lot of space and it is not always guaranteed that you will need the extra storage. Container hire means you can have temporary storage space for all your excess stock and once it is sold off, simply stop hiring the container.

With options for container hire in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch and NZ-wide available short term and long term, hiring a shipping container has never been easier.

3.Choose the best container for you

Container hire can be a versatile tool to utilise in your growing business. You can choose the exact container you need at the exact time period you need it. This means you can vary the size based on your individual requirements during the year or even use temperature-controlled containers during the hot summer months.

Here at ContainerCo, we have 40 ft, 10 ft and 20 ft containers for sale. We even have refrigerated containers for sale NZ-wide. High cube containers can be used to give you that little bit of extra vertical space and flat racks are perfect for transporting bulkier or wider items.

Hiring containers provides a greater level of flexibility throughout the year and can work around any inconsistencies in your business. It is also a good way to test out different containers to help you decide what works.


Hiring a container can be a more cost-effective option for businesses that do not need a container 24/7. It is not worth it to purchase a container if your a small, growing business testing out the waters or if you are only a seasonal seller.

It is important to determine your individual requirements including when you will need the container and what you are going to put in the container. Once this has been decided, you can determine the size and type of container you will need.
