Benefits of renting a sea container

Just like purchasing a shipping container, renting one can also offer advantages. For example, if you don’t regularly need a container, renting one once-only may be an attractive option instead of purchasing a container. In addition, if you don’t have any storage capacity for containers when they are not in use, renting a shipping container may be a suitable choice.

There are different advantages of renting a shipping container compared to purchasing a shipping container:

  • Flexibility: If you don’t regularly need a container, renting a container is often the most flexible option. You only pay for the time you actually use the container.
  • Cost savings: Renting a container is often cheaper than purchasing a container, especially if you only use the container occasionally.
  • No maintenance costs: If you rent a container, the maintenance costs are for the lessor. This saves you repair- and maintenance costs.
  • No storage problems: If you don’t have any storage space for a container when it is not in use. Renting can be a good solution, because you can return the container, when you are no longer using it.
  • Different types and sizes: By renting a container, you can easily choose a container that meets your specific needs, such as size, type or additional functions.

Sometimes purchasing a container is cheaper

If you plan to use a container more often or for a longer period of time, buying a container can be more economical. This means you always have your own containers available. So always check this carefully. Even if it is still unclear whether there is a return freight at the location where the container is going, buying is often a better solution.
