Q. Can I ship my container over Bass Strait or Overseas?
A. Only if it has a valid CSC safety approval plate.
Q. How long does a CSC plate last once it is stamped?
A. On a brand new container a CSC plate lasts 60 months.
On a secondhand container that is deemed in satisfactory condition by an inspector, the CSC plate will be valid for 30 months before once again requiring inspection.
Q. Can we purchase the container we are hiring at a later date?
A. Yes you can, but it will be at the rate indicated on the hire agreement.
Q. If we hire the container for a while, will the hire paid come off the purchase price?
A. No. We either hire or sell our containers. If you wish to pay it off a bit at a time, contact a bank or other financial institution. You can buy the container you have on hire at the market rate of the day.
Q. How long can I hire the container for?
A. Our minimum hire term is 30 days and we have no maximum hire term.
If you are intending to hire for a couple of years or more you should really consider purchasing the container.
Q. If I buy a second hand container do I get a "warranty"?
A. No. Second hand equipment is sold ''As is / Where is''. Purchaser is responsible for ensuring they have inspected the equipment and they accept the equipment in its current state of repair.
Q. How do you deliver my container?
A. Generally we use a sliding tilt tray vehicle where the container slides off the back of the truck and the truck drives out from underneath the container. You must nominate to us if you want the container doors facing the back of the truck or facing the drivers cab of the truck.
Q. What do I need to do to prepare the area where I want to place the container?
A. We recommend placing timber sleepers or concrete blocks under the container to keep it a minimum of 100mm off the ground. This allows air circulation under the container and helps prevent rust and rot developing on the underside of the container, especially in damp areas. DO NOT place the container directly on bare damp ground.
