Frequently Asked Questions

Not long at all! Shipping Containers NZ Ltd can supply most container units within 2 days from acceptance of the quote.

All containers are classed as 'cargo worthy' therefore have good door seals and no leaks.

The new containers have a lock box for extra security but not the B grades.

The containers come from China with goods in them so they might have a wee scratch or 2 from the journey. 

Floors of all containers are made of plywood. 

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.

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.

You can pay online and we take credit cards with a 1.5% surcharge. We don't accept cheques or cash.

We can spread your cost over 6 months with a small handling fee added. 

We can negotiate a deal that works for both of us. 

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.

We can supply quotes to all parts of the South Island. Give us a call to discuss.

It is the responsibility of the hiree to remove any tagging otherwise we will pass the cost back to you.
