11. Why rent instead of purchasing a container?

Renting a container is perfect if you need your container for 3 to 24 months. The costs are not on your balance sheet and you can encounter monthly fixed costs. You don't need to make a big investment right away. You only pay for the lease period itself. Renting a shipping container is practical if you only need the container for a short time. Would you like to modify your container? Then you better buy one. At the end of the rental agreement, a 'Repair Estimate' follows, whereby the costs of the repair are calculated at the end of the rental agreement.
