The storage container size and type needed:

Containers come in a variety of sizes and types, such as standard, high-cube, and refrigerated containers. Almar storage containers are available in 10ft, 20ft and 40ft sizes. Check out the various container specs to establish which container size is suitable for your storage needs:

The condition of the container:

Containers can be purchased new or used. Used containers will have varying degrees of wear and tear. Ask Almar about their B & C Grade second-hand containers for sale as there is a difference in price between the two. Grade B second-hand containers are slightly more expensive than a Grade C storage container.

New and refurbished containers are the most expensive so consider your storage needs carefully. Is the container public facing and a representation of your brand or is it ‘back of house’ and its purpose is more important than aesthetics.

The location of the container:

Consider the location of the container and where it needs to be transported. Almar Container Rentals & Sales can organise transportation for you. The cost depends on how far and how accessible your location is. The province that the container depot is in also affects the price depending on the availability and demand of storage containers for sale in your province.
