There are countless ways in which shipping containers can be utilised as solutions for short term requirements for both private and professional use. Better yet, they’re almost always a more cost effective alternative than their traditional counter solutions. Here at shipping containers Darwin, we have standard general-purpose containers, refrigerated, insulated, side opening and high cube containers available for rent in numerous sizes.

Here are a few common and more unique things shipping containers rentals are used for:


One of the most common reasons our clients privately rent shipping containers for is moving house. We believe this is because of several advantages of using a shipping container to transport your belongings. It’s a cheaper alternative to most moving services, you can access your shipping container whenever necessary and there no transportation costs.


Renting a permanent studio or office for your hobbies, special interests or work can not only be expensive but there are also potential special restraints. Stacked shipping containers can be a great way to increase internal space of a studio or workspace without taking a large amount of ground space.


Relevant now more so than ever, shipping containers can be used as temporary emergency centers or hospitals when our normal medical institutions run out of room. There are many accounts of shipping containers being used as covid testing centers as well as vaccination sites. You may have even spotted a few in your local shopping centre or pharmacy car parks to help cope as demands for the vaccine have increased.


For both professional and private use, renting a refrigerated shipping container can be a budget friendly, safe alternative for food storage. Whether for a wedding, party or workers lunches you can keep a large volume of food and drinks safely cold and secure for a fraction of the price of traditional fridges or cold rooms.


In the process of building your dream home or renovating your current home and need somewhere to stay? Why not rent a shipping container? Not only will you have your own bed and a good amount of your own belongings, but it’s also a far more budget friendly solution than staying at a motel or hotel. This means that you also don’t have to commute back and forth daily between your accommodation and home to check how the build/ renovations are progressing. For most of us, it’s also a much more comfortable and convenient solution than having to temporarily move back in with mum and dad, family, or friends.


Renting a shipping container can be a far be more reasonable, cost-effective solution when compared with traditional alternatives. Taking our first example from above, moving house can be an already draining and costly experience. Having to store your belongings in a storage facility can start anywhere from $130 or more per month and they can charge extra “exit” fees on top.

Compared to renting a shipping container with us which starts from as little $3 per day and you’ll only pay for the days you use it. You’ll be hard pressed finding a more competitive price than that!

Nobody likes a surprise visit from unwanted furry guests or water getting on their belongings. Shipping containers can make an ideal solution as they are both water and vermin proof. So wherever you store it, for however long, in any weather, you can open it up to find your belongings left unchanged.
