Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have to wait for delivery?
Not long at all! Shipping Containers NZ Ltd can supply most container units within 2 days from acceptance of the quote.
Are the containers watertight?
All containers are classed as 'cargo worthy' therefore have good door seals and no leaks.
Do they have a lock box?
The new containers have a lock box for extra security but not the B grades.
Are new containers unmarked?
The containers come from China with goods in them so they might have a wee scratch or 2 from the journey.
What sort of floor do they have?
Floors of all containers are made of plywood.
Will the container sweat?
Containers are basically a tin box and can sweat. The new containers have 10 vents to eliminate this happening. B grades generally only have 2 vents.
Can I pick the one I want?
All our containers are stored at a busy MAF controlled yard and therefore, it isn't always possible for you to view the containers in the yard.
The new containers are as you see them.
The B grade containers can vary in looks, but we don't have the ability to pull them off the stack for inspection.
How can I pay?
You can pay online and we take credit cards with a 1.5% surcharge. We don't accept cheques or cash.
Can I pay off my container?
We can spread your cost over 6 months with a small handling fee added.
What if I want to buy my rental container?
We can negotiate a deal that works for both of us.
How are they delivered?
20 footers are delivered with a crane truck and we can swing them into most sites within reason.
40 footers are delivered on a side lifter and can only be dropped next the trailer.
I need it transported to my house – how much will it cost?
We can supply quotes to all parts of the South Island. Give us a call to discuss.
What if the container gets tagged while I'm renting?
It is the responsibility of the hiree to remove any tagging otherwise we will pass the cost back to you.
