Refrigerated containers aren’t just for shipping goods across the country or overseas. They can be used for a range of different purposes and are a great alternative to fridges/ refrigerated units or cool rooms at events and gatherings. Whatever you need a refrigerated container for, Shipping Containers Darwin has got you covered.


Whether you’re looking to buy or hire a refrigerated container for cold storage or shipping, we have new and used containers available. Our refrigerated containers come in either 20- or 40-foot sizes and are a 3-phase system. A 3-phase system delivers power more consistently and steadily than a single-phase system as it can manage the normal peaks and dips in voltage. However, we do have a small range of single-phase containers if you prefer. Every container has a temperature control ranging from -25 degrees to +25 degrees so whether you need your goods frozen or chilled, you’re set.

When you hire or buy a refrigerated container from us you can have peace of mind that you are receiving a high-quality and reliable product. All our containers are fully inspected and pre-tripped before we deliver them.  In the unlikely event that you do experience an issue with your refrigerated shipping container, we offer a breakdown service in major metro areas. You’re also covered by our money back guarantee should the performance of your container not be up to standard. This is a testament to our quality products and commitment to providing our customer with only the best.

Refrigerated containers for sale and hire Darwin

Refrigerated shipping containers can be utilised for many different needs and projects. A massive advantage is that they are also water and vermin proof, two things you want to keep out of your space no matter what you’re using it for. They can be a more economical solution to keep food and drinks cool for various situations. We’ve had caterers use them to keep food cool at weddings and commercial and industrial companies use them in the outback to keep workers lunches cool. They’d also be a fantastic option for farmers to keep their fresh produce stored safely before selling at the farmers market on the weekend.

If you’re just after insulation without need for the cooling function, our insulated shipping containers are the perfect option. Our insulated containers are NOR, non-operational or decommissioned refrigerated containers. We’ve simply removed the motor for cooling but all the normal insulation of a refrigerated container remains. These can be an ideal solution for many needs such as a site office, portable accommodation, or a tiny home.
