About Us


Founded in 1968, the company first began operations as a general engineering company, specialising in the manufacturing of hydraulic equipment. We later expanded, setting up a division that tended to the repair and maintenance of shipping containers, before eventually dropping the division responsible for general engineering, to focus solely on the hiring and maintenance of shipping containers. Hence Container Hire Co was born.

With all of this history behind us, Container Hire Co have established ourselves as the leading name in shipping container hire Christchurch wide. Not only do we still provide quality shipping containers, but we have branched out to extend our services to local businesses, with the general public now making up the majority of our clientele. We take immense pride in being your answer to shipping containers, which is why we endeavour to provide Kiwis with first rate service and premium containers which won't let you down. As a proudly Kiwi owned and operated company, we want Kiwis to associate Container Hire Co with quality.
