Our Storage Containers

We are one of the leading stockists of used storage containers in the South Island. Our stock is of a high quality and maintained to an industry standard.

All of our containers have accurate temperature controls, stainless steel interiors and modern equipment. It’s important to know exactly what you need when choosing a Kiwi Box container – we’re happy to help choose the best solution for your business.

Container Sizes

There are two sizes of containers available for sale or hire:

Refrigerated vs. Insulated

All of our containers are refrigerated and insulated. The temperature application required will depend on what you plan to store in the container. Our experts are happy to help you choose between an insulated or refrigerated shipping container. We’re also able to customise a container to suit your exact temperature and humidity requirements.


Our 3 phase used refrigerated containers are completely reconditioned. They can be used for anything that requires temperatures between -30°c and +30°c.

Our single phase refrigerated containers are fitted with brand new refrigeration units and can be used for anything that requires cold storage between -20°c and +30°c.


Our reconditioned insulated containers provide a condensation-free storage environment with no extreme changes in temperatures – remaining warm in winter and cool in summer. These are great for storing documents, machinery, household items, furniture and valuable goods. They can also be converted into a spacious work or living space.

Sourcing and refurbishing our containers

Kiwi Box sources second hand shipping containers from international companies. When a container arrives, it is cleaned and treated for rust, then painted with marine-grade paint. Our specialists fix or replace any faulty parts and ensure that all the electrics are safe and operational.

If a container’s machinery is beyond repair, the functional and quality parts are added to our collection of spare parts. The container will be rust treated and painted and then transferred to our insulated shipping container range.

Whether you are looking for cold storage solutions for freezing or dehydrating, or simply for dry and secure storage, we will have a shipping container that meets your needs. Please contact us today to learn more.
