Buying Shipping Containers Proving More Popular Than Hiring

Tuesday, 14th July 2009
The cost of hiring a container can quite often prove to be an expensive option. Unless you are looking at short term solutions the hire charges for a container often exceed the cost of purchasing a second hand container in 12-18 months. There are many obvious benefits in owning your own container. Once bought you are then free to carry out any modifications you wish to the container without worrying about the costs to put the container back to its original condition when returned to the owner. For instance the colour of the container may not be a concern initially but over time you may decide you would like to repaint the container in another colour. Maybe you decide that you want to use your container as a workshop a few years down the line and want to add some power and lights? You may decide that you want to use your shipping container as an office and need to add some windows or a personnel door. When you own the container you are free to convert it as you wish and to move it anywhere you decide. Some considering buying a container may be put off by being unsure what to do if they no longer need it. Often the company that provided you with the container in the first place will only be too happy to buy it back when you have finished with it at a discounted price. Before committing to a hire agreement it is worth taking time to consider just how long you are likely to have the container for. The cost to deliver the container to your premises should be the same whether you have bought the container or hired it. Time passes all too quickly and before you know it you may have paid more in hire charges than you would have to buy the container in the first place.
