Modified shipping container builds are an excellent, cost-effective way for you to turn a new or used shipping container into a functional space. We do have a few options available to our customers with a few new offerings peppered in. Here we discuss the different modifications available to you for a shipping container, types of custom container builds we work with often, as well as our unique DIY container kit options available to those looking to get their hands dirty.
Shipping Container Modifications
We believe customized shipping containers is on the rise due to there being a considerable amount of options available to consumers on various ways they can build out the options on their custom shipping container. In the past, it was likely the desired outcome would have to be achieved by sourcing information online and building it themselves, or hire a contractor with limited knowledge of container structure to add the pieces to the container. We specialize in shipping container modifications and stay on the cutting edge of options available to the industry. The options we have available to customize out of the box are as follows:
- Interior Finish
- Custom Doors and Windows
- Kitchen (Fully-featured)
- Bathroom (Fully-featured)
- Exterior Finish
We also can include custom requests from customers to fit specific needs. As you can see, if you cherry pick some of the options out, the options are practically endless. For an office you would probably be looking for HVAC, both interior and exterior finishes and potentially a bathroom, kitchen, or combination. If you are looking to build out a workshop, you may have much less interior buildout, but go more heavy on the electrical install to support your equipment. As a starting place, this lets you understand some of the options available.
Types of Shipping Container Customizations
We have the mentality of "If you can dream it, we can build it", but there are a few standard types of shipping container customizations we have worked on in the past. These provided a functional space for our customers to utilize and all were built out to the specs required by our team of shipping container professionals. Here are a few examples:
- Commercial Kitchen
- 2x Wide Container Home
- Shipping Container Bar
- Shipping Container Office
- On-site Employee Housing
We love hearing from our customers and hearing their dreams for custom shipping containers, and most of the time, we can make them come to life. We first start with the challenge you are facing and use that as a baseline for the entire build. If we are not solving the problems you have, what's the point altogether? You can utilize either 20' or 40' shipping containers to build these options out.
DIY Shipping Container Kits
I know we said the DIY options caused pain points for users above, but that is before Bob's Containers entered the market. We approached this venture as an opportunity to connect with our community and make our knowledge useful for the greater good. Our DIY option is intended to be an extension of the "open source" aspect of our company. We have revolutionized the DIY shipping container process by using our previous knowledge and builds to fully understand what can and cannot be done in a shipping container customization. We have an online DIY shopping experience to walk you through the process of needs for your container and you will finalize the project and it's delivery with one of our container professionals.
While this gives you a good idea of what we offer, we are by no means limited by the constraints above. We encourage you to give us a call today no matter where you sit in your buyer journey. Our consultative approach allows us to answer questions and walk you through the process until you feel comfortable all the way around. So if you are on the fence, give us a call today!
