Moreover, not everyone likes to own a large steel box that comes with the burden of maintenance and care. However, storage container hire is much more practical and convenient option. Before you start looking for rentals in your location, have a look at the helpful tips mentioned below so that you can avoid making a mistake.
Find out whether you require a permit
Before hiring storage containers in NZ, you need to know if it requires a license as the permit requirements may vary based on your neighborhood codes, county, and city. Usually, if the container is not kept as a permanent structure on a property, it may require a temporary permit.

Decide how long you need to hire the container
The rental price of the container may vary how long you want to hire the container. Some suppliers offer better prices if you choose a long-term contract. Even some suppliers also offer a rent-to-purchase option for them who hire their containers for long-terms. If you don’t know the exact duration of using the container, you can ask the supplier whether they allow month-to-month contract.
Inspect the container
Not all shipping containers are manufactured in the same way. Therefore, while renting a container, it is always helpful to inspect the container. Before signing the contract, you need to look for all wear and tear. Make sure that you check whether the container has dents, severe rust, holes, chemical damages, and many more things. Moreover, checking the grade of a container is another important consideration before considering storage container hire.
Know the delivery fee
Some suppliers ask for a flat fee for delivering the containers to specific miles from their locations and then increase the rate per mile. Here, you should remember that delivery fee is such an area where hidden costs can easily be added up. Hence, before signing the contract with the supplier, you should always ask for quotes.
