Big Box Containers is a leading provider of dry storage containers across South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. We also offer high-quality refrigerated containers.

Made of marine-grade steel, our 6-metre and 12-metre storage containers are durable, vandal-proof and ideal for outdoor use. They’re also easy to relocate.

Renting containers is a fast, affordable way to acquire temporary or long-term storage space. It costs a fraction of the price of building a storage facility or renovating existing premises, with none of the delays.

Note for clients in Pretoria: If you’re looking for secure storage at a fixed location, our Pretoria branch provides a limited number of on-site storage units for rent.


Our dry storage containers are ideal for storing anything from retail goods to bulky equipment.

Among the many uses of shipping container storage are:

  • portable site storage, for storing tools and equipment on worksites
  • agricultural storage of supplies and equipment
  • temporary storage for meeting seasonal or event-based storage needs
  • short- or long-term expansion of existing factory or retail storage capacity.


All Big Box Containers branches offer 6- and 12-metre dry cargo containers, as well as Hi-Cube containers – which are useful because of their higher ceilings. In addition, our Gauteng branches offer smaller, 3-metre containers.

All our storage containers feature double lockable doors, for security and ease of access.
