Custom Built and Modified Shipping Containers

Most customers who use our containers as workshops do not modify them aside from fitting lighting and power to the container when it is on site.
The main advantage of using a container as a workshop or shed is security. The rugged steel construction of the container in conjunction with a steel lockbox on the front door protects your property against potential thieves.
Increased access solutions
We have clients who require containers that are accessible on more than one side. This can be useful for many workshops or in situations where they reposition their container on a regular basis.
Our experienced team of designers and engineers can create a solution that will suit almost any application.
Specialised Dangerous Goods Storage
Due to New Zealand regulations, some Dangerous Goods have required storage specifications that must be complied with. For this reason we have been asked to modify several containers to meet our clients requirements. Certain controlled substances must be stored in specific areas and kept separate from others. Contact us for information on Dangerous Goods Storage.
Due to lower quality garden sheds being produced and sold in the retail sector, many people are turning to 10′ shipping containers as a solution. They are of robust steel construction, weather resistant and if maintained properly, will last much longer than the cheaper imitations. Another benefit of using 10′ containers as sheds is that they are far more secure to protect your valuable garden equipment and tools.
