Customize Guide 

Shipping Containers, or sea cans, are reusable rugged steel enclosures designed to transport cargo on trucks, trains and ships. They are easy to transport, secure, waterproof, rodent proof, and fire resistant. They are engineered to be stackable and self supporting from their 4 corner castings, allowing them to be safely placed on most flat firm surfaces with minimal site preparation.

These unique benefits also make shipping containers a cost effective building block that can be modified into just about anything. They can be used for storage, container homes, retail stores, restaurants, portable offices, workshops, generator enclosures, water treatment facilities, complex multilevel buildings or whatever you can imagine.

Built to last in the roughest conditions, these ingenious multipurpose enclosures can hold their value for decades, being repaired, re-purposed and modified numerous times before eventually being recycled back into steel.

Containers are very customizable. The utility offered by a container can be increased dramatically with simple additions such as a rollup door or window. Basic modifications can be added to any container, just let our Mod team; know what you’re looking for.

Some popular basic modification options include, but are not limited to:

  • Man doors
  • Rollup Doors
  • Windows
  • Spray foam insulation
  • Lights
  • Vents
  • Framing
  • Custom painting
  • Decals / Branding
  • Welded lock box

We also cut containers to custom lengths. High Cube options are available for most containers sizes. For a relatively little extra cost, they provide more utility for certain projects and allow 8ft ceilings to be maintained even after the installation of ceiling joists, insulation, and lining.
