Necessity of relying on experienced consultants in the container industry prior to your container purchases
Be impressed by experience, not by buzzwords, when sourcing a consultant
Thanks to his 23 year of experience in the shipping container industry and co-founder of one of the leading all-round containerisation enterprises during 2007, Container Intermodal Trading (CIT), owner Kashief Schroeder has fast become one of the most respected and trusted individuals when it comes to all things relating to this industry.
Apart from running his own business as an entrepreneur, Schroeder is one of the frontrunners dedicating his valuable time to ensure that the industry as a whole is seen as one of the safest and soundest investment opportunities in the country, with him fiercely assisting in combating fraud or the sale of inferior products.
He states that more and more individuals and businesses are in the market to purchase a shipping container for one of the variety of reasons they are being used for, ranging from the more traditional storage and/or secure shipping methods, to modern day trends of renovating containers for anything from offices, homes and education centres to using containers as an ideal weekend getaway spot, replacing cabins and the likes as a far safer and more viable option with far less wear and tear.
However, Schroeder warns that it is for this very reason, with containers having become the latest trends for all of these options, that more and more people who lack the necessary experience and know-how are entering the market, competing for a slice of the market to make a quick profit even though they have no proper experience that fully equips them to make sales with a clean conscious.
Upon hearing a variety of complaints and one horror story after another of bad experiences that consumers have had to endure from individuals they trusted, Schroeder made the decision to also provide container consulting services, to ensure people and businesses are not taking advantage of when specifically purchasing inferior and faulty containers – with no obligation to purchase from CIT.
Schroeder provides useful tips for both self-inspection of containers, and how to select a trusted brand to purchase from, here’s what to do when selecting a consultant – that is trustworthy and knowledgeable.
Schroeder provides the following helpful guidelines below:
Expanding across Southern Africa as one of the top container companies, renowned for quality and the best market related pricing, the award-winning CIT is constantly pushing the boundaries in container and intermodal equipment trading.
Schroeder concludes: “Offering new and pre-owned containers for sale or rental, the CIT team have amassed a number of years in the industry. We’re able to provide you with sound advice, so I welcome anyone to contact me if they have any questions. I truly don’t want to see the industry obtain a bad name for itself.”
