Should I purchase or hire a container for my new business?

If you have a long-term plan, purchasing a shipping container over hiring may be your best option. Purchasing your container will mean that you’ll be able to modify and customise your container to make it uniquely yours. Container businesses offer a different kind of atmosphere that people know and love. The Container Co’s shipping containers offer plenty of opportunities to build the complete modifiable space for you.

Are ContainerCo’s shipping containers durable or built for harsh weather?

Another reason why you might want to opt for the shipping container business is that they are inherently durable units which will last you for many years to come. The robust exterior will last against general wear and tear and harsh weather conditions. Your interior furniture will be kept safe and sound. Shipping containers usually do experience condensation overnight, leading to dampness. We strongly recommend installing insulation in your container to protect your interior furniture and appliances, and to ensure warmth during colder seasons.
