We are 100% Australia-owned, and have an extensive range of shipping containers for sale and for hire available to both industry and the general public with a 100% Money Back Guarantee and fast delivery, right across South Australia – and beyond!

We don’t just sell and hire shipping containers either; we modify and convert them as well.

Our years of industry experience have given us the edge in providing exactly the kind of shipping container that’s required, whether it’s for mining, construction, agriculture, energy, transport, shipping, storing – even residential or office solutions. Whatever kind of shipping container you need, Shipping Containers Adelaide has it – try us out and see!

Shipping Containers for
Shipping & Storing

The most common uses for shipping containers still remain shipping and storing goods – and we have the right container for the job. From basic general purpose 10 foot, 20 foot and 40 foot containers through to specialised shipping containers like high cube, flat rack, side loading, open top and refrigerated and insulated containers, we can help ensure that your goods are transported or stored securely – at the best price.

Shipping Containers for
Working and Sleeping

One of our specialities is converting or modifying shipping containers for use in work sites, construction sites and mine sites. Take a look: we offer an exceptional range of accommodation containers (both self-contained, and simple bunk style), toilets, site offices, first aid rooms and lunch rooms. We are also the leaders in dangerous goods and training containers, and can even provide container shelters as well. Got a big project on and sick of wasting time (and money) trying to sort out accommodation? Ship in a few shipping containers! Need a secure place to work from or store goods? Again, ship in a container – and then ship it out again when it’s no longer needed. Run a holiday park or caravan park? A shipping container can probably boost your income too! Give us a call and see how we can help.


We have all the accessories you need for your shipping container as well. If you just want a simple shipping container for storage you may need nothing more than a lockbox and some shelving and ventilation. We can also paint your container (handy if you want to brand it with your business colours, or suit your site) and add ramps, personnel doors, air-conditioning, insulation, lighting and specialised flooring. Want even more? We own one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia so we can modify your container just about any way you want. Kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, bedrooms …the only constraint really is the size of your container. Though of course, you can add another container to create a space as large as you need.

A Shipping Container for the
Backyard? Easy!

Remember, we also provide shipping containers for the general public as well. So if you’re looking for a little more space (at a low cost) a shipping container may just be the way to get it. You can convert a shipping container into a granny flat, parents’ or teenage retreat, office, art studio, craft room or workshop in the backyard very easily. And because they’re stackable, if you can fit one, you can actually probably fit two for a double storied space! (Actually, they stack eight high, so ostensibly you could fit eight in the space of one, though you would need a clever staircase builder for your shipping container ‘apartment block’!)

Or Use a Shipping Container
to Boost Business

If you’re a small business and you have a little room on your property, or need a space that can be shipped from location to location, a shipping container is ideal for you too. No cafés near you, and staff wasting time driving out to get good coffee? Put a shipping container café in your carpark and, hire a barista. You’ll save your staff’s precious time, and make a profit as well! Annoyed at the exorbitant cost of having your trade show stand built at each new venue? Ship in your amazingly modified shipping container, open the doors and you’re done! Need some more accommodation for your Air B’n’b business that’s taken off? Add a self-contained accommodation shipping container, and enjoy another income stream.

Shipping Container Shelters

Here at Shipping Containers Adelaide we have a great range of shipping container shelters as well, so if you’ve got big machinery that needs protecting, or you’ve been thinking of building a warehouse or new shed, take a moment to consider your options. Container shelters are a great way to create transportable shelter and storage at the same time. Take a look here – you’ll be amazed at their size, portability and versatility. You can mount your shipping container shelter on two shipping containers (great for storage as well) or mount them to a wall or post – no shipping container required! Stand-alone shelters are also available. Super strong, incredibly sturdy, and wind-proof up to 316kms an hour, a shipping container shelter is the perfect way to shelter your machinery or items without having to invest in an expensive permanent warehouse or shed. And of course, it can be removed and taken to the next site with ease.


Easy Delivery across South Australia
– and WA, NT, QLD, VIC and NSW as well.

Whether you’re in the middle of Adelaide, or out in the Nullabor, we can deliver your shipping container to you, easily and quickly. If you’re local, we can get it to you within 24 hours if necessary.

(Remote regions will take a little bit longer!) We can also deliver to other states as well – either from South Australia, or from one of our depots around the country.

We’ve been delivering shipping containers for a while now, so we’ve got pretty good at working out the best method to get your shipping container where it’s going.

We have Tilt Trays, Side Loaders and Hiab Cranes – even a semi-trailer delivery method can be arranged if you have your own equipment to offload the container.

We’ll make sure to get all the details about siting and access when organising your container, so that delivery can be as quick and smooth as possible.

How Much Does a Shipping Container Cost?

That’s a good question! Prices vary, depending on the type of shipping container you require. You can pick up a basic used shipping container for just a few thousand dollars. Modified or converted containers have a range of prices, depending on size and complexity of the modifications. We can send you a price list of what we currently have in stock, or we can give you a precise quote if you let us know exactly what you’re looking for. Rest assured, we offer very competitive prices on both new and used shipping containers – and remember, we offer a Money Back Guarantee on every container (a little bit safer than buying one off eBay or Gumtree!)

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Shipping Container?

Once again, this depends on the type and size of container required, but also how long you want to hire the container for. A standard shipping container comes in at around $3 a day… so it is very affordable (especially when you see the price of some storage units today!). Our prices are very competitive, but the best way to get a true figure is to give us a call, or fill out the ‘Quick Quote’ form. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
