Containers First, the leading supplier of shipping containers and other portable storage solutions in Australia, is proud to announce its 25th year of service in the shipping industry. Since the company’s establishment in 1987, Containers First has helped bring success not only to clients in the field of shipping and transport, but also to homeowners and entrepreneurs who have made use of the company’s vast array of steel containers. As part of its 25th year celebrations, Containers First renews its promise to maintain high quality service to their customers, beginning with a newly revamped website to better showcase their products and cater to the needs of their clients.

Containers First offers a wide selection of products and services, foremost of which are new and used shipping containers for sale, hire, or lease. New containers come in three sizes — 3m, 6m, and 12m — and include three types: general purpose storage containers, high cube shipping containers, and two pallet wide high cube shipping containers.

As with new containers, used shipping containers also come in three sizes. These second-hand steel containers are available in a number of grades, permitting clients to select the most economically priced container to suit their needs. According to representatives from Containers First, used shipping containers are more cost-effective choices than new containers:

“Selecting a less-expensive second-hand or refurbished used shipping container over a newer build is often the great choice, especially if you’re planning on modifying your container or using it for any number of common aftermarket applications such as storage,” explain company representatives.

In addition to saving costs, Containers First also reassures clients that these second-hand containers are just as sturdy and functional as their newer counterparts, citing the company’s rigorous inspection and repair of used steel containers to ensure high quality of products.

According to one representative, “All our used containers have been thoroughly inspected, repaired if necessary, and certified by Containers First to be fully secure, lockable, weatherproof, and vermin proof. You can expect many years of service from our certified used containers, with most requiring only minimal ongoing maintenance.”

Other products by Containers First include dangerous goods storage containers, refrigerated containers, and even portable buildings. The company also offers assistance in modifying shipping containers according to customers’ needs. Containers First takes pride in its team of highly qualified engineers and builders, asserting that they can deliver any kind of modification a client wishes:

“We’ve successfully designed, fabricated and delivered countless container modifications from the routine to the challenging. With Container First’s technical expertise and innovative thinking on your project, you can be assured whatever you can imagine, we can build,” state company speakers.

Containers First has successfully created custom storage containers for various institutions, both from the government and private sectors. Portable buildings assembled by the company have also helped business owners and homeowners seeking alternative space solutions. Some of the company’s latest projects include customised display containers for road campaigns by British automaker MINI, as well as portable workshops for electricity provider Endeavour Energy.

With the company’s dedication to delivering high quality products and impeccable service, Containers First hopes to remain number one in the shipping container industry for even longer than its current 25 years.
