Our Pricing Promise

CSL has built a strong, reputable business over 30 years through a commitment to transparent pricing. Our container hire pricing has no hidden costs, and we do not charge for unnecessary services or add ons. 

How Our Pricing Works

Our container hire pricing is broken down as follows:

  • A daily rate, charged for a minimum of 31 days. The longer the hire, the lower the daily rate.
  • A lift fee in depot, to get your container onto a delivery truck.
  • A transport fee from our depot to your door when we arrange your transport.
  • A de-hire fee, which is a lift fee + return transport from your door to our depot when we arrange your transport.

What About a Damage Waiver?

We do not charge a damage waiver as part of your hire. 

However, we do provide clear instructions on what you need to do to ensure your container remains in good condition throughout your hire, and what you need to do prior to returning the container to ensure you are not invoiced for additional repair works. Most often, you just need to sweep out the inside and give the outside a rinse so the container is ready for the next hire.

If your container has incurred damage throughout the hire, we will review and invoice the repair work once it is returned to depot.
