How much does it cost to buy a shipping container? Surprisingly enough, not as much as you would think! A used shipping container for example can be had for as little as a couple thousand dollars. Modified containers have varying prices, depending on the container size, and complexity (or simplicity) of the modifications, so we can’t give a specific answer to this one straight off the bat. However we do offer extremely competitive prices on both new and used shipping containers, so once we’ve found out exactly what you need, we can give you an accurate quote in minutes. We can also send through a general price list of what’s currently in stock on request.


Did you know hiring a shipping container starts at less than $5 per day? Naturally container hire prices vary depending on the type and size of the container, and how long you want to hire it for. But our prices are incredibly competitive. So why not give us a call, or arrange a ‘Quick Quote’ by filling out the form on the right of the screen, and we will get back to you. We have a huge amount of containers in our Townsville depot, and in many cases can have your container to you within a day of your booking. As a rule of thumb, we offer three types of shipping containers for hire: Refrigerated, High Cube and of course, the mainstay of the industry, the General Purpose shipping container.


Shipping Containers Townsville offer modified container conversions to the general public and small businesses, as well as to the big boys in mining and construction and energy sectors. Like the idea of a cost effective granny flat, garden shed, art studio or workshop in the backyard? No worries. A shipping container may be just the answer. Small business owners looking for another income stream, without the infrastructure costs? A pop up container cafe is a cost-effective add-on to your venture. Shipping containers also make excellent exhibition booths for travelling trade shows, roadshows and festivals. We’ve even helped create a remote bush retreat used for mountain-biking weekends!


At Shipping Container Townsville, we are pleased to provide top-of-the-line shipping container shelters that offer both a refuge and storage. Whether you need somewhere safe to store industrial machinery, farm commodities, vehicles or other items of value – our customizable shelters have got you covered! Imagine having a weatherproof, long-term storage solution that can fit anywhere you need it. Our shelters are the perfect way to protect your belongings from extreme temperatures, harsh winds and potential theft.


The most obvious use for a shipping container is, of course, shipping! And we have a huge range of general purpose and specialised shipping containers, including high cube, flat rack, side loading, open top and refrigerated and insulated containers that will ensure your goods and cargo can be transported safely and securely, in a cost effective way.

Converted shipping containers for worksites, construction sites and mine sites are also our specialty. We have an exceptional range of accommodation containers, ablution blocks, site offices, first aid rooms and lunch rooms, as well as specialised containers for dangerous goods, training containers, container shelters and more.

Big, strong and secure, shipping containers are naturally ideal for short or long term storage. So if you have specialised collections or furniture that needs storage, or perhaps want to pack up your house for a time and go travelling up to Far North Queensland for a spell; a shipping container can be a safe and secure way to store your goods on your property until you need them.


Here at Shipping Containers Townsville we work extremely hard to make sure that our customers are happy with their shipping container hire or purchase that meets their needs.

We have a highly trained team of container specialists who bend over backwards to ensure customer satisfaction, every time. And we also pride ourselves on offering the highest quality Australian modified containers, so you know they’re going to be built to last.


If you’re in the mining and construction industry and need a structure to shelter large machinery, look no further than a container shelter from Shipping Containers Townsville. Container shelters are a clever, dual purpose way to create transportable shelter and storage at the same time. Strong, sturdy and wind-proof up to 316 kms an hour, they’re an excellent way to protect your machinery or goods from the elements, without having to invest in expensive permanent structures. And of course, they can be removed at any time when necessary and moved to your next mining or construction site.


So you’ve decided to buy a shipping container in Townsville. Good choice! And buying one from Shipping Containers Townsville Pty Ltd is an even better choice, as we’re a local company that leads the way in the manufacturing of shipping containers for sale. Based in Townsville, we have depots all over the country and deliver nationwide. So it doesn’t matter if you want to buy a shipping container for the backyard or you want to purchase a hundred shipping containers for a new construction, road, agricultural or mining project.


As your local Townsville container company, we offer a wide range of container accessories to allow you to customise your shipping container, including small modifications like lockboxes, ventilation, and paint, right up to accessories like extra windows, doors, air conditioning, insulation, lighting, flooring, kitchens, and bathrooms. With one of Australia’s largest container modification facilities at our disposal, we can build and modify containers to your exact requirements.

Shipping Containers Townsville can deliver your shipping container to Townsville (of course) and anywhere else in Queensland or Australia. And usually you’ll get your container within a couple of days (sometimes within 24 hours!) Of course regions further away will take a little bit longer, but let us know when you want it, and we’ll expedite the order to meet your needs


Container delivery methods vary, depending on your order and the site the container is being delivered to, but will generally be via a Tilt Tray, Side Loader or Hiab Crane. Semi-trailer delivery is also available if you have someone to offload the container onsite. We will discuss delivery with you when you call, to ensure there are no challenges with siting or access. Despite their size and weight, delivery of a shipping container is relatively straightforward, and our delivery drivers are very experienced.


Our Townsville ‘Load Yourself’ Removals Service makes moving house super easy. You get a shipping container delivered direct to your door, which allows you pack your belongings in your own time. Then, when you’re ready, you call us and we pick up the container and take it to your new home, where you can unpack your things. Again, in your own time. No need to worry about removalist costs racking up, or having to find room for everything in a hurry. Unpack at your leisure. Then, once you’ve emptied the container, we take it away. Simple…and cheap! It’s a great way to move your house or business premises on your timetable, not the removalists! Because our Australia wide ‘Load Yourself’ removal service, really takes the pressure off.
