Shipping containers, no matter if they’re 20′ or 40′ long, are designed to securely hold whatever cargo is loaded into them, and that’s among the driving reasons behind the popularity in using them as both residential and commercial storage units.

New and used shipping containers are broadly available, affordable, and can be delivered and put to use immediately. If you mean to use the shipping container for storage without any adjustments you can begin loading it with anything you want to store immediately. If you plan to modify your unit with more user friendly characteristics it can be done in a short amount of time, and for a fraction of the price of a stick constructed storage unit. What’s more, containers are designed to be mobile, so you can move it from one place to the next.

Roll Up Doors

If space is limited, or a simpler procedure of going in and out of the container is needed, many people install roll up doors on their shipping containers. A roll up door usually isn’t as strong as the first steel doors, but having one makes it considerably easier to open and close, and requires no clearance space outside the container. Normally, a roll up door can be installed at the storehouse or dealer and delivered to your location prepared to go.

Dividing Walls

People or businesses that handle storage facilities are always trying to find fast and creative ways to grow their business as needed, and buying a 40′ shipping container and building interior walls is a rather quick and affordable means to grow your company. If roll up doors are installed on the sides, a 40′ container can readily be broken up into three or four quite secure storage units.

Windows and Doors

Windows and doors are a popular feature to add to a shipping container when converting it for storage; however the windows aren’t the kind that are used to looking in or out. The windows that are commonly installed are long, short windows running along the top of the container and the goal is to let sunshine and possibly some air circulation. The goal is to allow light into the container, but not create a big enough opening that someone could crawl into the container and steal the contents. Doors that are installed are regular heavy duty “man doors” designed for outside installation and use.

Regardless of what your requirements for storage are, big or small scale, commercial or residential, or the level of changes demanded, you will manage to find a great container with Carolina Containers. Feel free to contact us directly. Call today!
