Renting Metal Shipping Containers

Renting is a popular choice for many businesses and home owners. Paying monthly rather than upfront is a more affordable option for many companies. It’s a great option if you don’t need the container for a long period of time. Plus it’s convenient for the supplier to come and pick the unit up and take it away when the term ends.

You can expect to pay around $200 per month for a rented container, depending on size, features, and condition. It’s possible to rent either new or used containers. Popular customers that have rented are commercial and residential construction, remodeling a home, fire or water restoration, moving or downsizing, or preparing for an estate sale.
You want someone else to take responsibility for the delivery and removal of the container.
Let’s move on to take a look at the different sizes and types of containers and the various price ranges available for rental.


Metal Shipping Container Sizes Available For Rental

The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) governs the regulations relating to the dimensions of shipping containers. The standard sizes are 20 feet and 40 feet in length.
Most containers have a standard height of 8 feet 6 inches and a standard width of 8 feet. A high cube option is also available, with an additional 1 ft of headroom.


Metal Shipping Container Features

Add-on features will have an impact on metal shipping containers’ price for the rental. These can include insulation, refrigeration, air conditioning, and heating. Units with doors, windows, and sophisticated locking mechanisms will also cost more.
Storage features such as shelving and a document storage system will also have an impact on the rental price. It’s also important to factor in delivery fees, which may be dependent on the location of the supplier.
