Shipping containers are surprisingly in vogue. This may be hard to understand when you stop to imagine one. Mostly associated with long ocean voyages, these dirty, often rusty, metal crates are usually far from glamorous. They are, however, wildly practical and versatile.

In recent years, shipping containers have become a favourite for those looking for an eco-friendly, low maintenance building solution.

Uses For Shipping Containers

Far from being just for transport, shipping containers can be used in a number of situations and for a whole host of purposes such as:

  • Unique accommodation
  • Markets or shopping districts
  • Food truck
  • Student housing
  • Workshop or shed
  • Home office
  • Inground pool
  • Sauna
  • Portable site offices
  • Storage
  • Unique home builds
  • Pop up medical clinics

Shipping containers can be modified to suit just about any purpose. By buying one and repurposing it, you are creating an inexpensive, eco-friendly building or storage solution. Additionally, as shipping containers are made of steel, they are strong and long-lasting. Making them a purchase that will last.

Buy Vs Rent

Buying a shipping container vs renting it is usually the most economical choice. This is particularly true if you intend to use it in the longer term. If you’re only going to use it for transport over a period of weeks, then renting may work well. However, buying a container gives you the ability to modify and utilise it however you like.

At Shipping Containers, we offer a huge range of new and used containers for purchase. We sell containers in their original condition or pre-modified for a variety of uses. Should you need to modify a container for a specific purpose, our team of designers can guide you to create the perfect result.
