These safety measures will protect your valuables from thieves and bolt cutters. With our lockbox, the padlock is securely hidden within the box, making it very difficult for anyone to remove it and break in.

If I hire a container in Sydney, will you pick it up when I’m done?

Yes, at the start of your hire you will pay for the first month’s hire, delivery and return transport up front, so at the end of the hire you just have to let us know you are ready for your container to be picked up and we can quickly organise the relevant truck to come out to site and remove the container with no extra fees!
