Considering their size and convenience, a standard shipping container is already much more cash flow friendly than people might think. So, when the price of top quality containers are further reduced by sales, they make quite the smart investment. If you’re considering a container for your next project, the best thing to do is to choose a reputable supplier with competitive rates and no hidden costs. 

If you’re unsure where to go for the best prices, here are 10 reasons why investing in a container from Shipping Containers Australia is the smartest move you’ll make this year:

  1. DurabilityShipping containers are designed to withstand the harshest conditions out at sea and in long term storage. At Shipping Containers Australia, all containers are made from high quality steel and heavy duty double swing doors. Corrosion and rust resistant, the average container can last well over two decades.
  2. Cost-EffectivenessBuying shipping containers for sale can be very cost-effective if you intend to transport cargo over long periods of time, as it will be one less cost to worry about. Likewise, if you intend to use them as storage facilities, you won’t have to worry about fees, or limited access. They can also greatly reduce building costs for remote worksites or businesses.
  3. VersatilityThe containers at Shipping Containers Australia come in a variety of sizes and loading styles, so they can be used for many different purposes such as storage, housing, workshops or retail spaces. Whatever facility or living space you can think of, a shipping container can be converted to suit your needs. They can even be made into pools or greenhouses!
  4. MobilityAs intermodal products, shipping containers can be transported via ship, truck, or train. With the right equipment, they’re easy to move from one place to another, which makes them ideal for transporting goods, short term storage, or pop-up businesses that require frequent relocation. If you’re interested in creating a tiny house, this can be the best way to do it, as you can arrange to have your shipping container home moved wherever you like.
  5. SecurityWhen you buy containers from Shipping Containers Australia, you pay for maximum security with sturdy construction and locking systems.

All of their containers are sealed against wind, water, and vermin.
  6. Low MaintenanceWith minimal upkeep required, you won’t need to worry about the regular maintenance costs associated with other types of buildings like traditional brick-and-mortar stores or offices. It’s very easy to keep a container clean, so long as you inspect it regularly, oil moving parts, and fix any faults before they become significant issues.
  7. SustainabilityMany companies now opt for shipping container solutions due to reduced waste. By reusing existing materials rather than relying on new components, they can lower their overall energy consumption and cost. You can take advantage of this by repurposing your container once you’re done with it – if it has already had a long life transporting cargo all over the world, it can easily become a shed, a studio, or even an animal shelter when it’s retired.
