Container Questions

Hello all,

I have a few question about self packing containers. I been quietly following along here for years and have appreciated everyone's questions and comments.

1. How does one go about getting a container. Is it a rental or do you buy it?
2. Does the price include the cost of shipping?
3. How do you find a company to ship a container?
4. When shipping a container does it have to be full?
5. How do you secure your items in the container?
6. Once it gets here how do you get it to your home?
7. What do you do with your container after it is unloaded?
8. Are there different size containers?
9. Who offers insurance on your container?
10. What is a ballpark figure for the overal cost of shipping a two bedroom, three adult home?

I'm sure I haven't asked all the questions that I need to know the answers. All advice and pointers are greatly welcome.
