Leasing Dry Containers

How long can I lease a container for?

We hire containers for anything from 30 days to over 5 years. Even if you need containers for a shorter period, please reach out to us and we can see if we can assist with shorter term rentals.

What condition will the container be in?

All our containers are 100% wind and water-tight. That means that they will keep your goods dry and safe. Containers are used and will have minor dents and scratches, but most of our rental fleet is fairly new and looks presentable. Should you have any specific colour or presentation requirements, please let us know.

What is the process for transport?

Containers are generally delivered using either a flatbed truck, or alternatively a crane truck, if the delivery location has no offloading facilities. Almar can arrange for either method of delivery.

Where should I position the container?

Make sure you have identified a flat, hard surface that can handle the weight of the container. An empty 3m container weighs 1.400kgs (1.4 tons), an empty 6m container weighs 2.185kgs (2.1 tons), while an empty 12m container weighs 3.640kgs (3.6 tons). A full 3m can take in excess of 10tons while a 6m and 12m can take in excess of 30 tons.
