Buying A shipping Container for your own use!
Gone are the days when shipping containers were used solely for the international transportation of goods. Shipping containers can be used for a lot of things that you wouldn’t quite expect, you can even use a storage container as a garage for your car if you do not have one. Other uses for storage containers include on-the-go retail buildings, low-cost housing, refrigeration, office space, fire training facilities, swimming pools, or just plain old storage of household items or office files. The use is entirely up to you, you can specify the size you want and move on to motifications from there!
Doors are important too
However, if you are looking to get maximum use from your storage container then it is best to get one with a double door because it will enable you to get easy and unlimited access into your storage container. It will also give you the maximum available useable space and they are very easy to clean/maintain. However, a double-door storage container has only one issue and that is if you put one end against a wall then you will only be able to access it from one side and this will eliminate your pull-through ability and limit your access quite a lot.
The average double-door shipping container is either 9’6’ tall or 8’6’ tall and 40-ft long. Regardless, this means the storage space is still more than enough and you can even fit two cars inside one unit.
Make Sure You Know What You’re Getting
Look for security features in your storage container as well. Security should be your number one priority when looking for a storage container on sale. Usually, you will find two kinds of locks on storage containers and they include an interior lock mechanism and an exterior bolt lock. If you buy one with an exterior bolt lock, make sure it is a good quality lock that cannot be vandalized with something as simple as a a bolt cutter. An interior locking mechanism is advisable if you are very concerned with security. It will cost you a bit more but it will be worth it with the guarantee that your items will be safe and sound. It’s extremely hard to break into a shipping container, they are made of thick metal and aren’t just going to be able to be cut or broken in to.
