Containers

I'm probably looking at getting a container to load a lot of my gear in when I move, my question is, is anyone on here into containers or moving them, had to ask, you never know

Send a message via MSN to Zippy
talk to Pentalver in southampton who can give you a purchase price and transport.

also try Williams shipping who can do the same.

How far are you moving? What are you wanting to move in the container? Normally only use containers for overseas shipments. I own a removals and storage company so could probably point you in the right direction and give you an idea of costs.

Danton containers in Newton Abbot are pretty good.

Bear in mind that a lot of hiabs will only lift an empty container. A jam packed container is going to need something quite chunky to load it onto a truck.

Cheers for all your posts. Yes it will need picking up full. It's going to be heavy with maybe tractor. Digger. Derv gennie. All the tractor implements. Welders. The list goes on. Maybe it will be too heavy

Too much weight, as said before the hiabs used for delivering/collecting containers will only lift empty. Containers moving vehicles are loaded using ramps or loading bays. Much easier and cheaper to move with truck/ lo loader/ trailer. If you were looking to purchase a 20ft container new ( one way shipper) the rate in the Midlands last week was 1820 + vat plus delivery. Container prices fluctuate with the price of steel/ demand. Have bought them for as little as 1350+ and as much as 2200 + in the last 4 years. Delivery within 30 mile radius of container depot roughly 150 + vat.
Good luck with your move.

Yeah, I think I'm going to move them myself, I've started palletising some of my gear and I've got an ifor William plant trailer so I'll load that up, I'll probably look out for a bigger 3.5t flatbed trailer
