This is very unfortunate for the creditors and those who have paid deposits to Port Container Services and their other business fronts. Some of the other websites and business fonts which have been run by Port Container Services are shown below.

Although Port Container Services Pty. Ltd. have different phone numbers for their different websites, one of the easiest ways to see if businesses are connected is to look at the address, in these cases 121 Woodstock Street, Mayfield NSW 2304 is used on these 3 websites.

Port Container Services prices?

Price compared to value, overall Port Container Services are reasonable to good. The shipping containers are a good price, service is usually good and being able to deal with one company for almost any of your needs is great and is a value which is often overlooked. For portable buildings they have a great offering and they say they can customise to any specification. However, if you are looking to build a permanent house then they are not a cheap option and they don’t seem to be as helpful once you tell them you want help building a permanent house. The overall opinion from most people we have spoken with has varied, some people disgusted but quite a few were very happy to deal with them and had only good things to say.

    Hi Guys,
    While I fully support your great product I am very let down by the events of this week. A very generous donation was forwarded to North West Equine Rescue after the anonymous lady (known to me)requested a container to be used at the centre. A price was quoted, but when NWER went to pay for it they had been charged a great deal more.Your dealer said it was “past”the quote time, of which not one person had given written advice on this.It has added so much stress to staff at NWER as they struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis.I can understand delivery charges, but this is a charity that within the next few weeks will have a very big impact on its supporters due to their efforts in saving the life of a little filly called April.NWER had already been a customer of yours with a rental container…very sad indeed.I would like a response from management to help me understand if this is a common practice from Port Containers and if not, why has it been done to a charity.

    I have been dealing with port containers for over 10 years they have always been the best price, service and the most professional …well above all the others I have found…dealt with the “Wolf” for many years previous to this and was treated poorly.

    Happy to recommend them to all

    We purchased a shipping container end of march 2017 – paid in full ($2500 inc delivery)- company failed to deliver – after numerous phone calls (i lost count) they started by blaming the transport company, then when still no answers they just ignored me, failed to tell us anything- then blocked our email address/social media contact. We found out they had gone into liquidation when we contacted fair trading. They should never be allowed to trade again – apparently they sold us a container they didn’t have, so were never going to deliver. Just feel so stupid for trusting the sales person and paying in full- wont ever happen again.
    The sad thing is this operator goes under so many different company names- absolute disgrace & should not be allowed to happen!

    Burnt by this company. Delivered the containers fortunately but terrible job of re-spraying. All rusting up 4 months later and gave me a big run around to finally discover now in liquidation. As a matter of principle I would avoid any connection with any subsequent group.

Have you dealt with this company? Please leave a review
