Repurposing and reusing shipping containers is a great way to have a positive impact on the environment, but we get asked for specific use cases quite often. While a standard home or office won’t fall on this list, we have a few unique uses that may strike a chord with what you’re considering.
First Time Home Buying
Buying a home, especially your first home, can be quite stressful. Not only do you have to try and enter the market at the right time, have enough cash to put down on a home, but typical mortgages last decades. With a shipping container home, much of this hassle and cost is removed from the scenario. We have financing options to suit your needs that are only a few years and will still come in less than a traditional mortgage in most cases. It really is a no brainer for first time home buyers.
AirBnB & Rental Properties
AirBnB has become the industry standard for finding places to stay. VRBO and others offer a similar service as well and these continue to gain popularity. One great way to put your idle land to work is to place rental properties on location. Our quick turnaround and low prices can help you start making money as soon as possible.
With homes and land continuing to rise in prices, in-laws are looking for creative solutions. While we do know this may not be for everyone, these units are excellent to place in a backyard or portion of land out of the way from your main home to house those you love so dearly.
An RV park or campground can be an excellent location to place one of our more rustic containers for that cabin feel and glamping quality. Place a few of these on the property and watch your sales go through the roof with very little overhead.
Work Site Offices
Worksites, especially temporary worksites, can cause problems for having functional space to work. Is it worth it to build a temporary office? To pay for a fully modular building for your workers? A shipping container may be a great solution because you can continue to reuse the same unit wherever you end up. This creates congruence between job sites and leaves you with the comfortability of knowing what you have to work with.
Barbers and hair stylists don’t need the most flashy locations and interior to get their work done. A shipping container barbershop can be a great way to keep your initial investment low and have the confidence to know your business is safe and secure.
As noted above in the work site offices, housing employees who are only working on location for a limited time can pose great challenges for logistics. We outfit our container homes to your need, so if we need to create a bunkroom with sleeping for 8, we can do that!
