Buy a Shipping Container
For Easy Storage

If your house is too full, a shipping container is a great way to cut the clutter, but still give you access to all your belongings, without having to go to a storage centre. Garage so full you can’t fit the car in? A shipping container will help there. Boats, jetskis, motorbikes, quadbikes…a shipping container is a great option for your tools and toys, and also makes a great workshed as well. You can also store farm equipment and supplies in a shipping container, rather than building another shed. And if you’re heading away in the caravan, or jetting off overseas on an extended trip, shipping container storage is perfect for storing personal or precious items so you can rent out your house, or get house-sitters in. Much cheaper – and easier – than long-term storage. (Remember, you can also hire containers as well – another great option.)


Buy a Shipping Container for Your
Tourism Business

If you have a caravan park, holiday park, farm-style accommodation, bush retreat or even a property in a top tourist spot, our shipping container accommodation can provide extra space and income at a very low cost. You can choose from our pre-designed self-contained accommodation units, complete with kitchen and bathroom, or a simple bunk style container for backpackers who just want a place to sleep for the night. Shipping containers are a very fashionable item right now, and with a few accessories (patio area, some plants, a spectacular view) you could have a very profitable accommodation spot for not very much cost.


Shipping Containers for Fruit-Pickers Woofers & Farmhand Accommodation

It’s fruit-picking time – but accommodation is tight! No worries – ship in one of our great shipping container houses, and you have a ready-made accommodation solution, ready to go – again, at a very economical price. When the season’s finished, you can lock it up tight and not worry about it until next year. Easy! Or you may need help all year round, and enjoy having wwoofers to help out. They get their own self-contained space and a great experience, and you get the help you need on the land. Perfect – and not too expensive, either.


Buy a Shipping Container for Your
Cellar Door

South Australia’s wine region is world-famous, and there are some pretty spectacular cellar doors around (at a pretty spectacular price, we’re guessing!). That’s great for the big companies, but if you have a small vineyard, and would just like a small, rustic cellar door (that can be locked up and left when you’re busy in the vineyard) then consider a converted shipping container. Pick a top spot with a gorgeous view, and bring in the shipping container cellar door. A few wine barrels planted with flowers and a bench or two, your finest wines…beautiful!

Getting Your Container Delivered

For many people, the idea of getting a shipping container can be daunting – they’re not exactly small! No need to worry though. 

If there’s one thing shipping containers were designed for, it’s easy transportation, and our delivery drivers are very experienced in the fine art of shipping container delivery. You do have to make sure there is good access to your property, and from your end, preparation of the site is important too (flat is best, and having footings arranged if you want them).

We use a range of delivery methods to get your container to you – we’ll sort all that out when you call.
