Frequently Asked Questions about Shipping Containers in Basildon


How much does hiring a 20ft shipping container in Basildon cost?

The cost of renting a shipping container in Basildon depends on its size and condition. As prices are subject to change every week, we do not display them on our website. However, you can fill out our quote form with your requirements, and we will get back to you promptly with a price that includes transportation costs.

Is buying or renting a 20ft container in Basildon more cost-effective?

Whether you should buy or rent a 20ft container in Basildon depends on your specific needs. If you only require short-term storage, then renting is the better option. However, buying outright is usually more cost-effective if you know that you'll need the container for a long time.

How long will my shipping container last in Basildon's weather?

It is worth noting that all shipping containers dispatched to Basildon undergo a meticulous coating process to ensure they are adequately protected from inclement weather. Specifically, a special maritime paint is applied to these containers, which allows them to withstand harsh environmental conditions for extended periods. This process is a testament to our commitment to providing our valued customers with high-quality products that stand the test of time.

Do I need planning permission for my shipping container in Basildon?

In general, it is commonly viewed by local authorities that storage containers are considered temporary structures. This means they do not typically require planning permission and can typically be placed on a property without a formal application. However, it is important to note that some local authorities may have specific regulations that dictate the size, location, and duration of storage containers on a property.

Therefore, to ensure compliance with local regulations, it is highly recommended to verify with the local authority in Basildon if you have any concerns. This can help avoid any potential legal issues or fines that may arise if the storage container does not comply with local regulations. It is always better to be safe than sorry, and checking with the local authority can save time, money, and hassle in the long run.

How will you deliver my shipping container to my property in Basildon?

We ensure that all of our deliveries to Basildon are carried out with the utmost precision and safety. To achieve this, we utilise specialised vehicle-mounted cranes (hiab) designed to handle heavy loads and easily manoeuvre in tight spaces. Our experienced and friendly driver will handle the entire delivery process, from loading the container onto the vehicle to placing it exactly where needed. Rest assured that your cargo will be in good hands with our reliable delivery service.
