Save Money with a Modified Shipping Container

Shipping containers are made in standard sizes the world over, but they can be modified to serve a multitude of different tasks. A modified shipping container can even end up saving you money in the long run, depending on the modifications that you require, and the intended purpose of the container.


Whether or not you work on a remote worksite or one in the middle of suburbia, there are all sorts of options available with modified shipping containers being suitable for different aspects of the worksite.

  • Training Rooms
  • Accommodation
  • Ablution Blocks
  • Lunch Rooms/Canteens

If you have to pay for accommodation and food for your employees when they work away from home, then this could save you a lot of money. You can provide workers with shelter through the use of modified shipping containers. When you move on to another site, you can easily transport the modified containers to the next job together with all of your equipment as well.

Quality Modifications

Shipping container modification is offered by a lot of companies in Australia, but not all of the modified shipping containers are made to the same high standards. If you are looking to purchase modified shipping containers, then it is a good idea to use the services of a company that makes their own modifications in Australia rather than using a company that uses a third party overseas. Doing so cuts down lead time. Also, you are assured that your shipping container modification is up to the required standard to meet the requirements of law. As well as checking prices, you will also need to check the manufacturer’s warranty and see what they offer you in terms of coverage for their modified shipping containers. There are companies in Australia who will offer you a three month full money-back guarantee if you are not happy with the modified shipping container that they supply. Thus, shopping around is essential in order to get yourself the best deal possible.  Make sure you do not cut back on quality by focusing on price, and also make sure that whichever company you use, that they are known for delivering excellent customer service.

Designed Specifically for your Needs

When you have found a supplier that you are happy to deal with, you can liaise with their designers and give them your required specifications and concept. They will then design your shipping container modifications using 3D software and create a plan for you to approve before construction begins. You will need to inform them of the exact purpose of the shipping container so that they can make sure that it is built to the necessary standards and meets all regulations. This is especially important for shipping containers designed for dangerous goods.

You can also specify any special materials to be used if required. These plans will be sent for approval and can be amended. Once you have a design that you are happy with, the green light is given and construction can begin of your modified shipping container. This is when it benefits using a company that does their own modifications in house, in their Australian facilities as the lead time for construction and delivery of your shipping container is greatly reduced. Before you know it your shipping container modifications will be complete, and you will be ready to take delivery. Start putting it to work right away!
