There are approximately 17 million shipping containers in the world, but only 6 million are currently being used. Meaning there are roughly 11 million unused shipping containers across the globe that could otherwise be used for a variety of purposes. Obviously shipping is the main use for these containers, and storing all kinds of items inside them isn’t too far behind. But there are so many more things you can do with these containers if you work with an experienced and trusted supplier.
Rather than just neglecting your storage, shipping, or other customizable needs; consider working with an organization that manufacturers, customizes, rents, and sells new and used shipping containers. You’ll be able to take advantage of the most advanced manufacturing and modification approaches and better utilize a container for everything from training structures to pop up containers for retail purposes.
As soon as your container is in your possession and all the modifications and customizations have been made, you’ll be able to utilize this durable structure for decades. In fact, steel storage containers average a 25-year lifespan and require minimal maintenance. Custom shipping containers can even be placed together and transformed into a comfortable, efficient, and visually appealing living space. You might need to do a little more maintenance work if you’re planning on residing in a container home, but it’ll be well worth it! Plus, simply consult with experienced contractors or professional container manufacturers and you won’t have anything to worry about.
Modified shipping containers are great for individuals working on improving their own productivity or larger corporations trying to bring in more revenue. There are all kinds of modifications that can be made to custom shipping containers to accommodate for virtually all of your personal or professional needs, including the following:
- Steel work
- Electrical work
Whether you want a simple container office to work done without any distractions or want to have an elaborate container pop-up shop designed for an upcoming conference or special event — it’s time to take the jump and purchase (or rent) a container (or two) of your own!
