Finding Tank containers that provide Value for money
One would be forgiven to think that your interests are best served to just pick the lowest possible offer when selecting pre-owned tank containers? Well not exactly! There is much more to the purchase of a pre-owned tank container than price alone!!
Tankformator supplies good quality tanks mostly just below or above ‘midway their life cycle’ generally considered to be a minimum of 30 years. Whereas these tank containers are unlikely going to trump the ‘cheapest’ offer, buyers are advised to consider offer price and residual lifespan when they purchase pre-owned tank containers. We can explain!!
Tankformator possesses knowledge and expertise across tank container manufacture, repairs & maintenance, logistics, and tank container leasing. Tankformator positions itself as having the capacity to ‘get it right first time’ with much of this owing to its ‘know how.’ Tankformator takes the trial and error approach out of the equation and with that it strips away significant business risks.
To buy a cheap used tank container can be expensive especially when you count liability! You do the math! Example: excluding the cost of interest, the annual cost of a tank container that is purchased for U$8,000.00 and only lasts 5years will be US$1,600.00. A tank container that is purchased for U$11,000.00 but can be operated profitably for another 12 years, will cost you less than US$1000.00/annum.
Longer life span equals reduced Operating cost
You do the math! Example: excluding the cost of interest, the annual cost of a tank container that was purchased for U$12,000.00 and is expected to last 5years will be US$2,400.00. A tank container that is purchased for U$14,000.00 but is expected to last another 10 years, will cost you just half that.
