Steel shipping containers are used for mobile storage of freight and other bulky items including vehicles and furniture all over the world. They may also be used for static storage either temporarily or on a permanent basis instead of traditional warehousing. Of course, mobile containers may also be converted for other uses and shipped off to become container offices, clinics, workshops, and even homes or temporary accommodation.
The beauty of shipping containers is that they are modular and relatively easy to move and transport. Also, they are incredibly versatile and available in just about every country in the world. A large percentage of companies offer one-way lease options, which means you can hire a container, have it transported, and then leave it where it is once you are done. Another client will then have the option of hiring where you left off.
Almar Container Group offers mobile containers for sale and lease in Southern Africa and in the Middle East, which is convenient for companies operating in one or both of these primary regions.
When looking for mobile containers for sale the best option is to find units that are available locally, where you live or operate. Then you simply need to price them and make sure that delivery to your destination will be both possible and affordable. If you are planning to lease a unit, it’s best to find a company that will allow you to terminate the lease in the country and/or at the destination you are heading for.
Almar’s head office in is Durban, KZN, but the company has a global reach with offices and production facilities in Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, as well as South Africa. The company is also active in the Middle East in the United Arab Emirates (in Dubai) and in Saudi Arabia. So, if you are indeed looking for mobile containers for sale, you will need to identify the centre closest to you if you want to inspect the container yourself and finalise the deal. You might also want to discuss the possibility of selling the unit back at a later stage if you aren’t going to use it anymore.
Alternatively, you can buy a shipping container from a private seller off the Internet, via a site like OLX or Gumtree. If you do this it is particularly important to make sure that you are buying a good quality mobile container that has been manufactured according to ISO standards. You need to establish age and condition and make sure you agree on transportation costs.
