Shipping Container Leasing

minimize transport costs. We happily arrange delivery at cost to you with one of our wide range of haulage contractors.
Vehicles will always be equipped with HIAB lifting gear to place each container where you designate on your site.
We rent our containers, but since they are new, we usually require a minimum commitment period of one year. We are
pleased to agree a purchase price with you so that you can buy the container at anytime after delivery, if you so wish.
We offer lease purchase on our containers, normally over a five year period after which you own the container outright for a
final payment of £1. We can vary the period and the buyout price to best suit your cash flow.
We aim to be highly flexible in our purchase offers to you; so do not hesitate to discuss your specific requirements"
Container leasing involves entering into a working agreement with a container supplier. The supplier agrees to deliver a
minimum number of containers to the client, with the understanding that the containers will be used for a specified time
and at a rate documented within the terms of the lease agreement. Both the supplier and the customer will also agree to
other terms and conditions required by applicable laws, and any other negotiations made between the two entities.
One of the main benefits to container leasing is the flexibility that is often built into the lease agreement. Often, the
supplier and client agree upon a minimum number of containers to be in the possession of the client for the duration of the

needed on hand, but has immediate access to additional containers with only minimal expense involved.
Companies also find that a container leasing arrangement helps to eliminate the need for upkeep on the containers themselves. While customers are expected to
take reasonable care of the containers, most container leasing companies realize that normal use takes place. Customers can turn in older containers for newer
ones from time to time, often without any changes to the terms of the leasing agreement. Sell offs from leasing companies is a great source of second hand
containers. It is not unusual for a container lease to provide customers access to more than one type of container for shipping purposes.

for units constructed for use with dry stuffs. This arrangement tends to work well for companies that import and export goods from various continents, or that sell
both solid and liquid goods.
Providers sometimes include provisions in their container leasing agreements that make it possible for customers to receive discounted pricing should they
choose to purchase a minimum number of units. This provision is helpful for companies going through an expansion that makes it more feasible for the business
to own and operate their own transportation network rather than use sub contract. Often, the cost per unit is significantly less than purchasing containers from a
