Several Shipping Containers In A Port Area

Shipping containers are designed to hold large quantities, making them ideal for both transporting and storing belongings. Typically manufactured using stainless steel, shipping containers are durable, weather-resistant and can hold everything from heavy machinery to your seasonal clothing.

At Brisbane Moving and Storage, we have self-storage and container hire available for residential and commercial customers. To discover why shipping containers are ideal for storage, read on

1. Shipping containers are available in different sizes

Shipping containers are available in different sizes so that you can choose the appropriate container for your needs. Opt for a larger container for bulky items, such as furniture, equipment or machinery. If you are storing things such as books, clothing or household items, you can likely hire a smaller container. This means you are only paying for the space you need and can help to save you money in the long run.

2. Shipping containers are portable

Unlike traditional self-storage units, shipping containers are portable, so can be used to relocate your belongings from A to B. If you are planning a move in the future, having all of your belongings already packed into a shipping container ready for transport can be invaluable when it comes to saving time and effort.

Shipping containers can also be dropped off at your home or business ready for packing, before being collected and taken to a secure facility. This prevents you from having to transport the items that need storing yourself.

3. Shipping containers are weather-proof & pest-resistant

Shipping containers are made to withstand adverse weather conditions and to prevent pests from accessing their contents. As a result, you can trust that your belongings are safe from damage when stored within a shipping container. Your container won’t be reopened until it has been delivered back to you, so the integrity of your possessions remains intact.

4. Shipping containers are available for short and long-term hire

Whether you are looking for a short or long-term storage solution, shipping containers are ideal. With flexible contracts, you can opt for a lease that suits your requirements, meaning that you won’t have to worry about relocating your belongings once the contract ends, or tie yourself into a lengthy lease that you may not need.

At Brisbane Moving and Storage, our containers are available to hire for upwards of one week – simply let our team know when you place your booking.

5. Shipping containers are strong

Shipping containers are designed to transport goods and so are strong enough to safely hold heavy weights. This makes them ideal for storing heavy belongings and is one of the reasons why many commercial and industrial businesses utilise them for storage purposes.

6. Shipping containers are stored in a secure facility

Once your belongings have been loaded into the shipping container, it is then transported for storage within a secure facility. At Brisbane Moving and Storage, our government-approved facility has 24/7 security to protect your belongings from theft or damage.

7. Shipping containers are cost-effective

Hiring a shipping container for storage is a cost-effective option, as it means you don’t have the additional cost of transportation on top of storage rent. This can make shipping containers a cheaper storage solution for many.
