About Christchurch

Being the largest city in the South Island and the seat of the Canterbury Region, this area which is home to nearly 400,000 people is hugely important to the NZ economy. Christchurch is a major player in the agricultural economy of NZ, and is only second to Auckland in the value that the local manufacturing firms brings to this country; plus it is arguably the biggest provider of our most famous export - the All Blacks - with the likes of Dan Carter and Richie "Godlike" McCaw playing their careers for Canterbury.

Sadly, Christchurch has been in the news for all the wrong reasons over the last few years due to the devastating earthquakes in both September 2010 and February 2011. From this devastation the country has helped get behind the rebuild with the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, and the plan to build an additional 50,000 homes in the Greater Christchurch region before 2028.

The Rebuild and Christchurch Container Mall

Shipping containers in Christchurch have been instrumental in the rebuild of the city with their multitude of uses. From builders using them as storage containers for tools and materials during the construction of housing developments; to retailers converting these into pop-up stores such as the Shipping Container Mall which was part of the Re:start project; to the city council utilising these to protect the public in Sumner from rock falls; and mums and dads storing their valued possessions in a dry and secure lock up. SEA Containers has been there through it all, providing reliable Christchurch container hire plans and sales services with a focus on customer service and delivering on time and on budget.
