Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you most certainly can. Our depot is located at 465-467 Somerville Rd, Brooklyn. The sales office is open 7.30am to 5.00pm and we are open Saturday mornings. Alternatively we can email or message you photographs
Used containers are generally released from shipping lines for resale after they have been written down on their books for about ten years. So a container straight out of shipping will likely be at least ten years old. Expect a few exterior dints and/or patches (they have been around the world a few times don’t forget). We also offer refurbished containers which have had the interior floor sanded and painted.
Every container is checked in our workshop prior to release. The door gaskets and locking mechanisms are inspected to ensure they are all in good working order.
Most floors are marine timber ply but there are also some with steel floors.
The most common are blue or brown however we do offer a repainting service in which your container can be custom painted to a colour of your choice.
