How much does one container cost?
We offer two types of containers, 20′ standard container with the price of £1920 GBP and 40′ standard with the price £3200 GBP.
Why should I consider investments in containers among other alternative investment options?
The risk is low. 90% of everything worldwide is moved in a container. As there is no alternative to the container, they are always in demand and spit out passive income for the owners day and night. Containers are insured which means your investment is insured.
What are the risks associated with the purchase and leasing of containers?
Containers always make money, sometimes more sometimes less. Container owners should not assume that monthly returns will always be the same, they will fluctuate. There is no risk to your capital, containers are insured and our container partners guarantee to buy them back from you at the price you paid for them after 5 years. Ownership of the container remains with the container owner at all times.
Will you buy back my containers back after 5-years at cost? Do I have to sell them after 5 years?
Our container partners will buy back your containers at cost, the price you paid as long as you lease your containers to us for 5 years or more. You do not have to sell them after 5-years; you can do so any time you choose. It does not matter whether it is after 5 years, 10 years or 20 years – they will still buy them from you at the price you paid. The only qualification to this is that if you purchase your containers elsewhere, we will pay the lower of the price you actually paid or the price you would have paid if you had purchased through us.
What is the average life of a container before it’s retired?
The answer is 20 years. But your investment capital is 100% preserved/protected because we guarantee to buy them back from you at the cost price (the price you paid) if you lease them to us for 5 years. This is article 5.1 of our contract.
What happens if my container unit is damaged in transit, on the dock, or lost at sea?
Container damage is rare, but it does occur. You are personally indemnified from any damage the container might suffer during the course of business by insurance affected by the end user. If damage occurs when the container is not rented, our container partners will have insurance in place to cover the damage.
How and when is income distributed from my container unit investment?
You can claim a return on your investment once a month. This will be paid into any bank account that you designate, anywhere in the world.
Will I know what my container will carry and where to? Am I responsible for its contents?
From the date of the signature on the contract leasing your containers to our container partners, you no longer have any legal responsibility for the container nor its content. We, our partners and the end user do.
After the five year contract has lapsed and I decide to sell, how long would it take to get my capital transferred back into my account? I.e. sell the containers?
The sale process is very simple. You inform us you wish to terminate the lease and when the containers come off hire your capital is transferred back to you within a maximum of 14 days.
What would be registration + (any other) charges for 40 foot containers, let say 5 containers.
Through our reliable partners the price is all-inclusive. There are no hidden costs, if you instruct the partners to acquire 5 x 40 foot containers on your behalf from the supplier the total cost will be £16.000 GBP.
How long will this process take to complete to place containers in operation?
If you instruct our container partners to acquire the containers from our supplier on your behalf, from the moment we receive your payment to the containers being operational (deployed on active service) is 5 days, including registration, insurance and deployment.
What part will I have to play in terms of deciding whether or not to accept a contract?
As professionals in the shipping industry, our container partners handle renting of shipping containers. You lease the containers to them and need not be concerned with the daily operation. That is our job, we and our partners do it well so you don’t have to. If you do not want your containers to transport certain goods, such as alcohol for example, we do have a special contract with a no alcohol clause.
I saw some negative comments about shipping container investments on the Internet.
Containers deliver a monthly income to their owners in cash, not paper profits, hard cash every month.
Most other investments do not deliver cash payments every month. More and more investors are moving into containers and other investment products are losing market share to containers.
In an effort to compete they write negative comments about the container industry, fake news as it is now called. These negative comments are all anonymous and nobody is claiming they have lost money.
