7 Steps to Delivery

Step 1: Browse and find the model you like or call one of our shipping container experts if you are looking to customize your own design or one of ours.

Step 2: We will take your build, whether custom or one of our models, and create a quote related to the services we expect to provide.

Step 3: Once you have received your quote we will then fine tune the order and design to your exact specifications to finalize expectations.

Step 4: You will then receive your invoice. We have options to pay in full or installments, but each of our builds requires 50% down to kick off the project.

Step 5: We will then take your design and build it to your specifications. We provide updates as your build progresses, but you can always reach out to the team here at Bob's for an update.

Step 6: While we are working on building your dream shipping container, we will instruct you on the best ways to prepare the land to make handoff as simple as possible.

Step 7: You outfit your unit however you would like! You are now the owner of a customized shipping container!
