I bought the hooks new on both of our trucks and will transfer them through 3 trucks before we consider replacement. These things are pretty much bullet proof as long as you keep up on maintenance, greasing daily, and don't put a cowboy of a driver in them. One thing to think about though if you intend to push the container rental is your downtime with the truck. Even the best of shops you will have at minimum a week of down time transferring a hoist from one truck to another.
