Shipping Containers For Sale NZ - New & Used Grades

SEA Containers NZ specialise in the supply of both new and used shipping containers for sale ranging in sizes from 8’ to 40’ in length, including both standard height (2.4m internal height) and high cube (2.7m internal height). 

We have container depots strategically positioned nationwide and have a transport network system that can help deliver the right container to you.
In addition to supplying the shipping container, we can also install a lock box onto the front doors of our B & C grade units (A grade units already have a factory installed lock box), plus we can offer a premium grade container which has had a fresh paint job with both internal and external walls painted the colour of your choice.

To make things simple we grade our containers in 3 ways.  Our A Grade units have had one trip from China (carrying cargo) into one of the major NZ ports, whilst our B and C grade units are guaranteed 100% wind and water tight.  These units are surveyed and inspected prior to leaving our container depot. 


A grade / As-new condition:

  • Container comes straight from manufacturer, but has been used during the trip from China
  • Generally have vents in side walls
  • Built with marine plywood floors
  • Fitted with lock box on doors for added security

B grade / Second hand units:

  • Best of second hand range with a better overall condition
  • Minor dents, dings and surface rust, and possibly has repair patches
  • 100% wind and water tight
  • Can be exported once updated with a valid CSC plate
  • Container previously used for shipping goods worldwide
  • Suitable for storing household goods

In addition to our general standard shipping containers for sale, we can also supply the following:



Our shipping containers for sale can be used for an array of functions:

  • Storage for commercial companies either long-term or during peak/seasonal periods
  • Household and personal storage 
  • Conversions into sleepouts and workshops
  • To safely transport cargo domestically and overseas
  • Sound barriers for events
  • Farm bridges and culverts

"Thanks again to the team at SEA Containers for another delivery of 20ft containers (this time 2 x standard 20ft one-trip containers).  The containers arrived in excellent condition and were again very reasonably priced when all the alternatives were considered.  At Devotus we are wine growers, within the heart of the Martinborough Terrace, making just a handful of bottles of ultra-high quality Pinot Noir.  We have quite a bit of valuable seasonal vineyard and winery equipment that needs to be safely stored away until when it's next required in the following vintage.  These containers are perfect as they are totally weather proof and secure, without getting into all the hassle of building permanent structures."
