Below you will see an ever- growing list of frequently asked questions, information and guidance that will help you get your project get off the ground and make the process very easy.

1. What is your QA process and how will I be informed of the progress throughout the build?

2. Once I pay my deposit how long will it be until my container is completed?
Each container company will have their own payment terms, the larger the company is “normally” the small the deposit. In saying that the rule of thumb is 50% to start the build and the final 50% before delivery.

The trade off with some of the smaller boutique builders is, they may be a lot cheaper to build your container, but they may require a larger deposit to start.
Yes, most of the time finance will be available to both personal and business clients. We would suggest you ask the best 3 companies you have short listed to construct your shipping container if they are set up to offer finance. If you strike out then pick the company you with to do business with and give Containify a call, to arrange the finance. After all, Containify is here for you.
Short answer Yes, it is always best practice to contact your local council. Metro areas, your council will normally require some paperwork before any container can go onto site. As you move further regional and then to Rural the council process will become straight forward.
The company you choose to build your container will also arrange the transport to site. As part of their quoting process your site will be assessed, and appropriate transportation will be factored into your quote.
