Containers For Sale

Container Sales

OK, so you’ve decided to purchase a shipping container and you’ve made a good decision to come to us for advice.

CSL Containers have been trading in used and new shipping containers since our formation in 1987. We have highly skilled staff waiting to help you make a decision by selling you a container to solve your space problem.

Whether it’s a 20’ pre-loved container or a brand spanking new 40’ container, the chances are we can help you. We also have refrigerated containers and hard to find containers such as open tops and flat racks.

New Containers

New containers come to CSL on a one way trip to NZ from China usually with cargo. Once unloaded they are transported to CSL where our staff inspect them and make sure they meet our standard for resale. These containers come in various colours but are usually blue, green or light brown. Of course if you want another colour our workshops are happy to paint the container in the colour of your choice. New containers come with a 5 year CSC plate validity from date of manufacture.

These containers are purchased offshore and are subject to currency fluctuations so get in touch with us now to ensure you have the latest prices.

Pre-loved containers

Pre loved containers normally come in the original shipping line colours or livery. They are sold next off the stack and come in a variety of colours. They will have some dents and rust patches and are normally aged between 9 and 14 years. In some cases we may fit a valid CSC plate so that they can be exported outside of NZ.

There is no substitute for viewing a pre-loved container so contact your nearest CSL branch now and make an appointment to visit us so we can help you choose a cost effective container solution to your needs.
