Yes, containers can be hired for short or long-term use, depending on specific needs and requirements. The rental costs vary depending on the size, condition, and type of container, as well as the rental period and delivery requirements. Check out our webshop for current prices.

To ensure that your shipping container is on a level surface, there are several things you can do:
1. Prepare the ground: Before placing the container, make sure the ground is level, firm, and free of debris. Use a shovel, rake, and/or a compactor to create a level surface for the container to rest on.
2. Use concrete blocks: Concrete blocks can be used to support the corners of the container and provide a level surface. Place the blocks under each corner and adjust the height as necessary to ensure the container is level.
3. Use leveling jacks: Leveling jacks can be placed under the corners of the container to adjust its height and level it. This is particularly useful for containers that will be in place for an extended period of time.
4. Use a crane: If you have access to a crane, you can use it to lift and position the container onto a level surface.
It is important to ensure that the container is level to prevent damage to the structure and to ensure that doors and windows operate smoothly. Additionally, a level container is necessary if you plan to stack or couple multiple containers together.
The delivery time of containers varies depending on the location, availability of the container and the chosen delivery method.
There are several delivery options for containers:
The cost of delivery varies depending on the location, distance and accessibility of the site.

We deliver worldwide. If a location is less accessible, we ask you to inform us in advance so that the situation can be presented on the spot at our transport department. This department can then assess whether and how delivery is possible.
Shipping containers can be coupled using a twist-lock coupling mechanism. A twist-lock is a metal device that is attached to the corners of the containers and locks in place when it is twisted.
To couple containers together, they must first be placed on a suitable surface. Then, the twist-lock is attached to the corner of one container, and the other container is positioned opposite it so that the twist-locks of both containers are facing each other. The containers are then pushed towards each other, so that the twist-locks can be twisted and locked together.
A lockbox is a steel enclosure that is welded onto the doors of a shipping container to provide additional security for the lock. The lockbox covers the padlock and prevents it from being cut or tampered with using bolt cutters or other tools.
To use a lockbox, simply attach the padlock to the latch on the container doors and then insert the lock into the lockbox. Close the lockbox and secure the padlock. This ensures that the padlock is protected and cannot be easily removed by unauthorized individuals.
