Load Yourself Removals Hire Service
If you want to control your own move in your own time, then our new Load Yourself Removal Service is a great way to hire a shipping container and organise your own move, your own way.
How it works is that we deliver a shipping container to your premises for as long as you need it. You can then pack your goods in your own time. Once your container is fully packed we pick it up and deliver it to your new premises. Again, you can unpack in your own way, in your own time. Need a few weeks until your new place is ready? No problem, your contents are safe in storage within the container for as long as required. Once you’ve unpacked in your own time (no boxes in the house until you’re ready for them!) we simply take the shipping container away. Now what could be easier than that?
Container Hire – Length of Contract
Our minimum hire contract is for a 3 month period, though how long you have our container at your site is completely up to you. A week, a month, a year – just call us when you’re finished with it and we’ll come and pick it up. If you want a container for an extended time, you may be better off buying of course, but for short to medium term solutions, hiring is often the best option.
Cost of Shipping Container Hire
The cost of hiring a shipping container from Port starts at a measly $4.40 a day!
We deliver the container direct to your site, which means you have access to your storage whenever you want it without having to hire a truck, go to a storage centre, and unload the truck at the other end. It might surprise you to learn that our self-storage prices are often up to 50% cheaper than the alternatives on the market. So hiring a container from Port is a no-brainer of a decision when you’re working on a budget. And as the container is situated on your property, access is 24/7.
Are There Any Restrictions for Hiring a Container?
Usually not, but some councils do restrict the use of a shipping container past a certain number of days, so it is definitely worth checking with your council to find out the individual rules and regulations pertinent to the area you live in. Also, access to your property may be a challenge, so you will want to ensure that the goods transporter can get access to your site and that your shipping container can be placed easily. Some sites require a Hiab crane truck, while others can simply be offloaded. Of course we can help you out with all this information when you call.
Are Shipping Containers Hard to Deliver?
Many people are in awe at the size and weight of a shipping container, and think arranging delivery will be problematic. But it’s really not. We have all the specialised equipment required to load, transport and offload your container safely and securely. We use a variety of different transport methods depending on the container type, size, and available site access. So give us a call and we can discuss the best way to get your container to you. You’ll be surprised how simple the process actually is.
Container Hire Delivery Time
Depending on where you live, your shipping container could be with you tomorrow! Port have depots all around Australia to ensure fast and convenient next day delivery. However, if your site or property is remote or rural, delivery may take a few days longer.
