Container Delivery Anywhere in Australia

Ever seen a shipping container up close? Big, aren’t they? And they’re heavy too. But surprisingly, delivery of a shipping container is a relatively straightforward and easy process. Which is just as well because Port Shipping Containers Melbourne delivers shipping containers NATIONALLY (often delivered within 24 hours). With depots all around Australia, we can deliver quickly, and site the container for you.

ISO Shipping Containers Melbourne

An ISO shipping container is built to a standardised size and structure, which makes delivery and transportation efficient and easy.  So easy in fact, that if you live in Melbourne or its surrounds, we can arrange delivery of your shipping container to you by the very next day. Depending on the physical location, access to your site and the position your container needs to be placed, delivery will be by a tilt tray, side loader or Hiab crane. Don’t worry – our knowledgeable consultants will establish the best way to deliver your container when you call.

Hire or Buy a Container at Ultra Competitive Prices

Naturally enough, shipping container costs vary depending on what sort of container you’re actually buying. However, we can confidently say that our prices are some of the most competitive in Australia. A used general purpose shipping container, for example, starts at only $2,500.

Money Back Guarantee
Yes, you can possibly buy a cruddy old second-hand shipping container cheaply off EBay or Gumtree, but can you send it back if you don’t like it? What if it has a musty or chemical smell, is unsanitary, or leaks badly, or simply isn’t delivered as advertised? Buyer beware indeed. Good luck getting something that weighs a few tonne back to the person who sold it to you!

At Port Shipping Containers Melbourne that will never be an issue. Partly because our containers have to pass our ’47 Point Health Check’. But mainly because all our containers come with a 30-day money back guarantee. So you can rest assured that whatever type of container you’ve ordered, it’s the one that gets delivered.

Melbourne – City By the Bay
If you live in Melbourne, you’ll know how lucky you are. Because in Melbourne, ‘four seasons in one day’ are just the beginning! But extremes in temperature brings its own problems. Especially if you’re trying to store or transport something of value!

Melbourne Shipping Containers Built to Last

Luckily all of our containers are built to last, and include double container doors for easy loading, solid timber flooring and are wind and water tight and vermin proof. Our containers are also available in a range of sizes including 10′, 20′ and 40′ lengths, and you can expand the width of your containers with a joining kit. A joining kit allows you to have two containers mounted side by side with the middle walls removed, which creates an open plan environment within your containers. Other modified shipping containers we sell in Melbourne include site offices, dangerous goods containers, portable workshops and ablution units to name just to name a few.
