Considerations for a Shipping Container at Home
So you’ve decided you want a used shipping container at home, there are a number of things that you need to consider first when choosing your shipping container. What is your budget? Do you want buy or hire? Where do you want to locate it and how will you get it there?
Hiring or Purchasing Your Shipping Container at Home
If you are wanting complete flexibility then you should consider hiring your shipping container. Hiring your container costs anywhere from $20 a week and up, depending on the condition of the container, its configuration and the length of hire. This is the perfect solution if you only want your container for a short time.
If you want to hold onto your container for a long time then it might be more cost effective to purchase it outright. If you purchase your container from Gateway Container Sales & Hire you will have the opportunity to modify it any way that you like, move it to a new property and sell it when you no longer require it.
The choice is up to you, it just depends on your individual requirements, budget and timeframe.
Choosing the Perfect Location for your Shipping Container at Home
More than likely the location of your container at home depends on what you are using it for. If it is a granny flat, then near your home is preferable. If it is an office on a worksite, keeping it close to the action without damaging it is important.
