How to Choose the Right Container for Your Needs

A Guide to Container Sales

Container sales in South Africa have increased exponentially with many individuals and small businesses opting for containers as a more cost-effective solution to traditional brick-and-mortar premises. Here to provide you with valuable insight on what to consider before purchasing one and to explore several container sales options to suit your specific requirements, is Absolute Containers, the leader in container conversions and modular solutions.


Make a Smart Purchase Decision


Purchasing containers can carry risks and hold few guarantees. We would suggest that before committing to this versatile option, you factor in the following:


  • Weigh the pros and cons of container sales versus renting. If the container is going to be kept for less than three years, perhaps renting a fully furnished one is a better option.
  • Whether you plan on investing in one to use for storage or to modify, we suggest you assess your requirements to determine the size that suits your needs.
  • Should you select a used container, make sure that it is structurally sound and there is no rust or holes, to name a few.
  • As shipping containers are constructed from a variety of materials, it is important to know the composite materials it is made from to ensure long-term strength and durability.


When it comes to container sales, the most crucial factor is ensuring that the chosen supplier is reputable with a proven track record. Absolute Containers ticks all the boxes, guaranteeing that the container selected meets your requirements for storage or modification.
