Shipping Containers for Small Businesses and the General Public
Maybe you’re just an ordinary Australian looking to buy a shipping container to store all that extra stuff that you just can’t get rid of? Or perhaps you’re a small business with a big idea for a new pop up container lunch cart or cafe? Or else maybe you travel around to different trade shows or industry fairs on a regular basis to spruik your business and need a trade show stand that is 100% portable? Whatever it is you need, Shipping Containers Melbourne are here to help. And at a price that won’t break the bank.
Shipping Containers for Big Business
Of course we can also cater to large scale operations as well. We supply all sorts of containers to construction, energy, mining and agriculture work sites including site offices, portable accommodation, first aid rooms, lunch rooms, ablution blocks, dangerous goods containers, training containers and more.
Last but not least, we offer shipping containers for actual shipping of goods and cargo! (What an imaginative use for them, we hear you cry!) We have a range of regular 10 foot, 20 foot and 40 foot containers (including general use, side loading and high cube) and specialised containers (like flat rack, open top, insulated and refrigerated) available for sale and hire throughout Melbourne and beyond.
Shipping Container Accessories – How to Make Modify Your Container the Easy Way
Shipping containers are actually pretty basic when you think about it. They’re ideal for shipping or storing as is, but you can add a few things to make them comfortable for working in, or living out of. You can add windows, doors, air conditioning, insulation, lighting and flooring. You can even add a whole kitchen or bathroom or laundry if you want. At Shipping Containers Melbourne, we have access to one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia, and we can build and modify the perfect container for you.
Container Modifications – Your Imagination, Our Knowhow
Though Shipping Containers Melbourne offer a huge range of pre-modified containers like accommodation containers, first aid rooms, lunch rooms and ablution blocks, we also offer a complete modification service that we think you will love. Take a shipping container, add a few (ok, quite a few!) modifications and transport it to a remote, rocky outcrop and you have a mountain bike adventure hangout that can be locked up tight when not in use. Put a container on wheels, add a floor to the roof and railings, and you have a rocking portable stage (with room for storage underneath). Add sinks and serveries, and voila – a funky pop-up bar. These are just a few of the fantastic shipping projects we’ve been involved in. So if you have a grand idea but just need some talented technicians to bring it to fruition, come and talk to us. We love this kind of stuff!
Shipping Container Shelters
We also offer amazing shipping container shelters. Container shelters are great way to turn a couple of shipping containers into a simple, effective facility that protects your large machinery or equipment, and secures small and valuable equipment and goods safely and securely. And they’re completely transportable as well. This is a great alternative to building an expensive warehouse, especially if you need to move your operation to another site later on. Check out our container shelters page, and you’ll see the epic way that container shelters work.
Australia WideShipping Container Delivery
Given our company name is ‘Shipping Containers Melbourne’ it won’t come as much of a surprise to know we deliver containers all over Melbourne and Victoria. But did you know we also have depots placed all around Australia? That means you can get super-fast delivery just about anywhere in this huge, great country of ours. Depending on where you want your container sited, a Tilt Tray, Side Loader, or Hiab crane will be used to deliver your container. If you already have equipment like a fork-lift or crane to off-load the container yourself, you can also get your container delivered by semi-trailer if you like.
Cost to Buy a Shipping Container
How much a shipping container costs to buy depends a lot on the type of the shipping container you want. A good, simple, used container can cost as little as a few thousand dollars. A basic conversion (like our fantastic Basic Starter Accommodation Container built with sliding glass door, insulated roof, split system air conditioner and electrical fit out) can come in under $10,000. It really does depend on exactly what you want. We pride ourselves on offering very competitive prices though, on both new and used shipping containers, so the best thing to do is give us a call or email us for a quote and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
