Founded in 2007 by Spencer Ives and the owners of Blue Sky Intermodal, Premier Box is a registered Australian shipping container business with its head office located in Burpengary, Queensland.
Premier Box began as a new shipping container supplier, manufacturing, distributing and selling new containers across Australia. In early 2008 the new shipping container product range was expanded to meet customer demands, and we started to offer used shipping containers for sale. In the same year we added another staff member and moved to Caloundra, Sunshine Coast.
In 2009 we witnessed one of the worst financial crises to ever hit the world economy. Fortunately, being a small company, we were able to adapt and change the direction of the business to ensure we survived. In fact it was during 2009 that Premier Box started its dedicated shipping container hire fleet, giving customers the alternative of either a sale or hire container solution.
Fast forward to today and the container product range we offer for sale continues to grow, the range of hire and lease agreements we offer customers continues to grow, as does the range of shipping container products included in our dedicated hire fleet. 2014 has seen us expand to our new main depot at Burpengary, and the foundations we have laid to date will ensure the long term success of Premier Box.
