Hiring a container from Capital Containers

We offer several different options when it comes to providing you with your shipping container requirement;

Renting: We simply deliver the container to your door and pick it up when you have finished with it . We have kept our hire pricing policy simple. One very low flat rate no matter how long or short the hire period. We like to keep life simple for both us and our clients and therefore do not like complicated pricing, structures, and contracts. 

Leasing / Lease purchase: This is the most tax efficient way of purchasing shipping containers and one used by most self storage companies. We have contacts with many finance companies who all offer competitive rates of interest. We can put you directly in touch with them or if you prefer we can do the leg work for you and phone around for the best prices.

We are one of the UK’s leading independent suppliers of high quality shipping containers with a client base built up over 30 years, consisting of blue chip companies like Network Rail and UK Power networks. We rely on repeat business and recommendation not on advertising. The majority of our customers purchase containers without actually viewing them first, placing an enormous amount of trust in us, their chosen supplier. We believe that this is an easier, more convenient and efficient use of our clients' time. Where possible we will send out pictures of the containers they will purchase prior to delivery. The most important part of our service is giving advice and making sure that the customer buys the best container to suit their needs. Please see the Advice section on this website. We also boast that we supply the highest quality at the lowest prices and offer a price promise to back up this claim. We don’t like to be beaten on price and will do everything we can to honor this pledge.

We are committed to providing quality products at market leading prices. We cannot guarantee to be the cheapest every time, but If you have a written quote that is better than ours please challenge us to match or beat it!
