If you’ve ever driven out around Port Botany or past the Sydney airport, you’ll see the thousands of shipping containers that arrive in Sydney from around the world, every day. And if you need a shipping container for exporting, importing or transporting goods, Shipping Containers Sydney has everything you need, offering both standard shipping containers and specialised shipping containers for sale.

A shipping container on your property is a great way to make the most of your real estate, especially in this beautiful (expensive) city of ours! And with Shipping Containers Sydney, you can easily add some extra space, without a huge amount of extra cost. What kind of space are you hoping to create? Room for the kids? A home office? Perhaps a granny flat for the in-laws, or to gain some extra rent? Shipping containers can be modified into some amazing visitor accommodation, and also make great outdoor rooms, pool cabanas, workshops, sheds, studios and more. If you’ve got room in your front yard or backyard, or a bit of land up the coast or down the coast, then definitely consider whether a shipping container would suit your needs.
It is worth noting that some councils have particular rulings on shipping containers, and there are a few things you need to consider about your site, like ensuring the ground is level, arranging footings to keep the container off the ground, and making sure that access is possible, but in general, a shipping container is an easy, unique and cost-effective way to extend your space
Worried about getting a shipping container delivered to your home? Don’t be! Remember, shipping containers are designed to be moved. And here at Shipping Containers Sydney, we have a whole team of experienced drivers who pick up, deliver, offload and set up containers every day. Of course there can be some issues when getting a container delivered, but these are usually site-specific ones not delivery ones, which is why we are very careful to establish what the accessibility to your property is like, and where exactly you want it placed. However, some sites are easier than others, and access to individual properties can prove tricky. We can discuss any issues about your property and your chosen container, and choose the best way to deliver it. We have a range of versatile delivery options, including a tilt tray truck, a side loading truck, and Hiab cranes that can place a container over a fence if necessary – one of them should be able to do the trick.

Confined space training container? Easy. Portable ablution block that doesn’t require electricity or water? Right here. Truck them in when required. Remove them once they’re no longer needed.
