Shipping Containers Adelaide hire and sell high quality, insulated shipping containers built right here in Australia. They are designed to effectively maintain an ambient temperature for limited periods of time, regardless of external highs and lows, making them perfect for storing or shipping goods that don’t demand precise climate control. All our containers are for rent or purchase and can be delivered fast to any truck-accessible location in Adelaide or elsewhere in the Australia, thanks to our countrywide network of depots.
All our insulated shipping containers are built from the industry standard Corten steel and are available in spacious 20 or 40-foot lengths. They are perfect for moving grains and cereals, flowers and plants, wines, carpets and rugs, paper and certain chemicals. The high-performance insulation helps negate the problem of condensation which affects all metal shipping containers and has been known to spoil loads. Extra counter-measures can be installed if necessary.
Insulated Containers are Ideal for Storage or Shipping Dry Goods
Insulated shipping containers were developed because of the tendency of standard containers to act like ovens in summer and freezers in winter, seriously affecting loads such as foodstuffs that are susceptible to such extremes in temperature. The thick layer of insulation we use helps prevent such variations without the need of a power source, making the containers ideal for shipping loads in and out of Adelaide; like wines from the nearby Barossa Valley or wool from South Australia’s many sheep stations. In fact, the list of potential cargoes is endless – pharmaceuticals, paints, fuels, animal feed, books and documentation.
Need Storage in a Hurry? Then Look No Further!
Insulated shipping containers can also be a crucial part of a business’s contingency plans. For example, if you were to find yourself with a sudden glut of farm produce – fruit or vegetables perhaps – but have nowhere to store them, we can usually get a container to you within 24 hours, often quicker. Or perhaps you have a great opportunity to purchase some stock at a really low price but have run out of warehouse space – simply call Shipping Containers Sydney and we can deliver as many insulated storage units as you need.
Containers can even be adapted to provide short-term accommodation for seasonal farm workers or crews working in Adelaide’s ever-expanding construction industry. We can also install air conditioning units or heating to make them more comfortable.
Non-Operational Refrigerated Containers
Shipping Containers Adelaide supply two types of insulated containers, delivered right to your door and installed by our experts. The first are our purpose-built units, designed from scratch to provide an environment with an even temperature for loads that don’t require full refrigeration. They are all made from tough Corten steel and have smooth wooden floors that can be easily replaced if they eventually suffer wear-and-tear. If you purchase one of our insulated shipping containers you can rest assured that it will promise years of reliable service. They can be painted in your choice of colours, using corrosion-resistant coatings, and can also be sign-written with your company logo.
Recyled Refrigerated Shipping Containers
As a budget alternative to our purpose-built models, we also sell or hire out non-operational refrigerated units (NOR’s). These are recycled refrigerated shipping containers which have either had their refrigeration motors entirely removed or decommissioned (although the motor housing remains, so please remember you will sacrifice a small amount of load space).
Yet they boast all the original, high-performance insulation properties. NOR’s come in spacious 20 or 40-foot sizes which have a hugely impressive amount of cargo space.
Modifying a Shipping Container is Easy
There are many additions or modifications you can make to your container, and our accessories list gives you a good idea of the most requested modification items. Whirlybirds, air vents, windows, shelving, power-points and data points, work benches, bathrooms, fluorescent lights, paintwork and more are all available. Your modifications can be as small (lockbox, shelves, flooring etc) or as extensive (entire residential fit out, including bathroom, kitchen, and laundry) as you want. If you have a grander idea in mind – an envy-inducing, customer-attracting trade show exhibit, for instance, or a movable feast of food festival booths, then we can also help. Shipping Containers Adelaide have one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia and a talented team of modification experts, so your shipping container can be customised to your specific needs with ease.
