Moving is stressful – we all know it and we all try to avoid it as much as possible. But when you can’t avoid it, moving your home or business in the most efficient way possible is the key to minimising stress. One of the easiest ways to move a large amount of belongings in one go is by using a moving container or a shipping container.

However, people often shy away from utilising a moving container because they believe the cost is out of their budget. But that doesn’t always need to be the case. Whether you are looking to purchase or hire a moving container, there is always an affordable option.

Cost to Hire a Moving Container

At Shipping Containers Sydney, hiring a container starts at just under $3 a day. Of course, pricing will vary on the size of the container you need. There is generally a minimum period but there’s a good chance that hiring a container, even if you don’t need it for the full minimum period, is going to be a cheaper option than hiring a truck or a removalist to move your belongings. It will also save you time on constant back and forth trips to move everything in a small vehicle.

Cost to Purchase a Moving Container

If you think you may need your container for the long term – building your new home and need storage or using it as a temporary office space, purchasing a container may be more beneficial for your needs and your budget. Again, the price depends on the size and type of the container you are looking to purchase, but you can expect anywhere between $2,500 – $10,000 to purchase. You can get an instant quote with Shipping Containers Sydney so that you can get an idea of what a moving container costs.

With either of these factors you will also need to take in the cost of moving them from one location to another. This cost will depend on the size of your moving container and your location.

Moving containers are a great way to help your move your home or your business quickly and simply, and without the stress.
