Tips and Tricks to Own your Shipping Container Even on a Budget

  • Written by News Company

A shipping container is practically a wonder box that has super-box strengths to withstand shipping, storage, as well as handling. They come in a varied range of sizes, designs and prices suitable for any of your usual or unusual shipping container needs. For example, they can be used to store or ship goods, as well as have the flexibility to be converted into a house, office or even a swimming pool. Does sound too good to be true, right? Well, we don’t blame you.  

There are well-known and efficient companies that sell both new and used shipping containers throughout Perth. Port Shipping Containers is one of them and if you live anywhere in Perth be it north, south, up coast or down coast, you are in luck. You will just have to wait a few days (and sometimes even just a single day), and your shipping container will get delivered to your doorstep. Just make sure you have enough space to welcome the huge parcel.

  •  5 Tips for Buying a Shipping Container when on a Budget:

Now, shipping containers are great, versatile and stink of usefulness and everything, but what about it being pricey and not affordable for everybody?! That’s when the real task starts. That’s when you have to use your brains and come up with tricks that allow you to purchase these without burning a hole in your pocket. Well, lucky for you we already did most of the job for you. You just have to read on now.

o   Choose a Local Supplier: This in simple language means that, the closer your supplier, the better it is for you. Cause obviously lesser transportation costs. But in case you live in the suburbs, fear not, companies as mentioned have widely branched out networks that will allow you to get local shipping containers irrespective of your vicinity.

o   Back Load Transport: Choosing a locally based supplier is preferable, but that’s not always the case due to multiple constraints. That’s why the best way to save money on transportation of shipping containers is to have them delivered by a local transport company. The transport company will thus require a back load from one of the regional depots of the shipping container company.

o   Buy Second hand: Most obvious of the lot, buying a second-hand container is going to be much cheaper than a new one. But, you have to be extra cautious of the product you are buying. You will have to do effective research on the supplier you buy it from, so that even though it’s cheap, it’s still of good quality. Because many a times you buy it off for unbelievable prices, and when it’s delivered, you realize why it was so. So, it’s advisable that you purchase from a trusted vendor who provides warranty.

o   Choose a General Type: If you don’t require the shipping container for any specific or specialised use, then it’s best that you choose a typical or one with a common design. All the modifications and customizations are not of much use, and will only lead to extra charges unless absolute necessary. So, avoid all the futility and choose a general one with no unnecessary costs.

o   Obtain the Best Value for your Money: Always keep in mind that the cheapest buy or the best deal may not translate in to the best value for money. You have to make sure that the product you buy is of great quality -- for example, made from corten steel (in this case) that’s highly durable and rust-resistant. So, considering the quality and price factor, make sure what you get is what you pay for.

So, these were some of the most helpful tips and tricks that you can put to your use if you want to purchase one of these highly useful giants, but at a not so giant-some price. Make a checklist, tick off each of the points as you move forward; and trust us, you are sorted. And your bank balance is too.
