Shipping Containers for Sale in Perth
SCF's Perth depot has a wide range of containers available for sale. Utilising the Fremantle Port, we often resupply our depot with new build containers purpose built for a range of applications.
Our hire fleet that comes off contract is also returned to depot and becomes available as used stock. Often these used containers represent the best value for money when purchasing. They remain wind and watertight, yet are significantly cheaper than new units. Read our Container Grade Guide to get a better understanding of the condition of used containers.
In addition to the ample supply of containers in Perth, larger commercial and residential blocks make it much easier to store containers onsite, compared to other states, where space is at a premium.
For large blocks, 20ft and 40ft containers can be purchased. They will store anything from extra furniture, garden equipment, car and bike parts, more family members or fixtures as part of a renovation. In addition to short or long-term storage, they can be used in place of a shed, a detached office as part of your work from home plan, or a secure workshop.
For those that live on smaller or space constrained sites, SCF can supply 8ft and 10ft containers. Smaller containers are also a popular choice on sites where access is limited or tricky. They are commonly seen in inner city suburbs.
One key advantage to buying a shipping container is your ability to customise it, such as the external paint colour, internal shelves or more. This can be done in SCF's Perth depot before your container is dispatched, or you can undertake the work in your own time if you're handy, or enjoy a weekend project.
Sites with easy access tend to be the most popular for container sales. These will often be placed out of site at the back or side of a property.
Shipping Containers for Hire in Perth
Shipping container hire in Perth is a popular option because it is much cheaper than buying a container. A lot of customers only need a container for a short period of time too, so it makes sense to only pay for the time it is needed. To provide some context, you would need to hire a container for approxiamately three years to cover the cost of buying one.
Perth is full of shipping containers. With a steady stream of containers coming through Fremantle every year, there are many containers to hire. Due to supply, the cost of hiring a container in Perth is quite low, as in, cheaper than a small coffee a day.
So why would you hire a container in Perth? It depends on the end use. Short to mid-term activities, like home renovations are often one reason, or a business might hire them to store archives until they move into a new facility or can shift the files into permanent storage. It can also be used to store old equipment or furniture, car parts, tools and stuff that belongs in a shed.
The best thing about hiring a container is that you have access to the newest units in the fleet, which often come with more features designed to make it easier and safer to use. For storage containers, this might include a lockbox to discourage dirty thieves. On a Dangerous Goods Container, this might be a larger bund to capture chemical spills.
