How secure are the shipping containers for storage?

Sea Containers are very secure and quite difficult to vandalize. They are generally a great deterrent to thieves as they are difficult to break into and not commonly cut open using cutting equipment for fear of what may be stored on the other side of the wall. Most containers are locked using padlocks through the door handles. For extra security we can provide a lock box which effectively is a steel box welded to the front doors in which a padlock can be fitted and cannot be accessed via bolt cutters.

Do you offer storage for my shipping container?

Yes. We can offer secure storage within our depots.

Can I access the storage container?

Yes. Access is only available during normal depot working hours and we generally require 48 hours notice to access the units. Charges may apply for the access to the container.

Do I need Insurance?

While your items are in storage they are not covered by ICL for loss or damage. Do not assume any existing policy will automatically cover your items in storage. Check with your insurance agent regarding policy coverage. If you require an insurance to contact we are happy to recommend one.

What about condensation in the storage container?

Like any enclosed space, condensation is a possibility. Most shipping containers are fitted with side vents and this assists the breathing of the container. It is also important that nothing is stored in the unit that contains moisture for any length of time. See our container storage page for recommendations or contact our customer service representative.

What are the Payment methods for Storage Containers?

Payment of the 1st 30 days rental in advance along with the transport delivery and pick up charge. A direct debit or credit card charge is set up and applied on the 1st of each month thereafter for the ensuing month’s storage.

What are the payment methods for Sale Containers?

We accept payment in cash/company cheque/ EFT/credit card (Visa/master) or debit card. Note credit cards attract a service fee. Unless on Account, all payments must be receipted prior to release of the container.

Does the storage container just sit on the ground on site?

We recommend placing shipping containers level, to ensure easy opening of the doors. At the same time we recommend the containers should be sitting off the ground on level blocks (say sleeper logs for example) to allow air flow through the floor and air circulation around the container.

How heavy are shipping containers?
Empty Tare Weight
  • 10 foot container 1.1 ton or 1100kg
  • 20 foot container 2.25 ton or 2200kg
  • 40 foot container 4 ton or 3950kg
Do I need council permission?

Every council is different and has its own regulations on storage containers. It is recommended that you give your local council a call before making a purchase or arranging to hire a container.

Do you deliver to regional areas?

Yes we can arrange delivery to most country areas.

How are they delivered ?

We generally use either a side loader truck (which is self unloading), tilt tray truck or hiab truck – all capable of self unloading. The type of delivery is generally dependent upon a number of factors relating to location and positioning and can be discussed in more detail at the time of booking. Please see our container transport page for more information.

Can I arrange my own transport?

Yes customers are welcome to arrange their own transport.

What items or materials cannot be stored in an ICL Storage Container?

ICL does not allow illegal, toxic, waste, hazardous, contaminated, controlled, restricted, explosive, flammable, chemical, paint or inherently dangerous materials of any kind to be stored in our containers. In addition, do not lock anyone or any living thing inside a shipping container.

Will a sea container do any damage to my property?

Our friendly, professional drivers and staff do our best to place our containers with the utmost care to avoid any damage to your property. However, if you want your container placed in an unpaved area, there is the possibility of damage.

Does someone need to be there when the container is delivered?

Preferably someone needs to be where the unit is to be placed. It is very helpful so the driver can show you how to operate the doors. With proper instructions however it is not essential that someone be present when the sea container is delivered.

Where should I place my storage container?

We recommend you place your storage container in an area free from wires, power lines, and low branches or trees that will be convenient for you to pack your stuff. For delivery, we require an area that will accommodate the size of the truck AND the size of your container.  We can always do a site check (free of charge), and send a driver out to the area to determine what will work best.

Do I need to clean my sea container before you pick it up?

Be sure to remove your lock and all of your personal property from the storage container, along with any rubbish. Failure to leave a storage container in a clean fashion for use by another customer may result in an additional clean-up fee.
