Total Containers

Total Containers (AKA Sea Containers WA) is one of the most respected providers of shipping containers, modified units and storage solutions in Australia and has experienced remarkable growth since its beginning in 2008. This company is thriving due to its strong national presence and ability to satisfy the demands of the mining sector.

Total Containers were previously importing their branding decals offshore and made the transition to SignPrint for a number of good reasons. Ben Truscott, State Manager states “we needed responsiveness and we needed challenges solved quickly, which we weren’t getting from an overseas supplier”. Total Containers also offer custom branding and ‘container wrapping’  to their clients which can be produced and installed in short timeframes.  “We look for quality, value for money,  quick turnaround and customers who carry stock” says Truscott, when asked what he looks for when choosing a supplier.

A superior quality product is required as the branding decals are applied to corrugated painted surfaces and exposed to direct sunlight for many years. With the majority of containers heading into the harsh mining environments the decals are put through the most extreme circumstances. Intense heat seems intent on fading, melting and shrinking everything it can shine on, and cyclonic winds blast dust, sand and rain from every angle, it is clear not any old sticker will withstand the conditions.

The solution involves screen printing, a traditional method of applying inks at higher deposition which ensures greater resistance to the elements. Stronger adhesives, refined flexible vinyls and UV resistant laminates also add to the integrity of decals that need to survive these extreme conditions intact.

Going forward, Total Containers are working with SignPrint as they complete their rebranding and continue their journey of growth.
