Re-Purposing Portable Storage Containers

Recent years have seen portable storage containers being utilized as an alternative storage solution. These are both cost-effective and easily transportable, touted as promising options for both homeowners and businesses looking for a place to store their excess goods. They are usually called into action during remodeling and renovation work in homes and offices, where a storage space near the site’s immediate vicinity is required. Customers simply store their items in these and remove them once construction is finished.

However, these metal containers are not solely for storage purposes. In places where there is a serious lack of space, metal containers have popped up as a neat solution for commercial spots. Given the multi-purpose and highly customizable nature of these items, many creative methods of re-purposing metal containers have emerged recently.

Below are just three of the many things that you can convert our offered portable storage containers to.

You can convert our offered portable storage containers into mobile office spaces, with a lot of companies around the world already doing so. With the necessary setup, you can convert a bare storage container a conducive working space. The use of our storage containers eliminates the need to look for an office space for lease, which can be rather cost-prohibitive for some companies. In addition, setting up and renovating a bare office space can take months; a smaller space takes less. The less time it requires for a setup to finish, the sooner a team can start work after the necessary preparations.

Movable Container

A mobile office’s layout primarily depends on the container’s shape and orientation. Nevertheless, a few companies have thought outside the constraints of their figurative box when it comes to how their office is laid out. A main concern with re-purposed containers, however, is the tendency to absorb a lot of heat especially on sunny days. This is primarily brought about by the container’s metal construction. Concerns about this can be remedied by the use of insulating foam on the ceiling to minimize heat absorption, coupled with a combination of exhaust fans to remove hot air and air conditioning to cool the space.


Who would have thought that simple storage containers would also function as viable data center structures or physical server rooms? The all-metal construction and secure locks that we use in our portable storage containers augment this particular purpose: utmost security and privacy for sensitive data. Using our storage container also minimizes the overhead cost required to rent a data center facility or build a new one from the ground up. Large technology companies can simply make their own server setups within their compound, without the need to erect new structures. The walls of our storage containers are opaque and thick, so no one can see while technical support staff work on restoring server functions.

With the server’s constant workload, data centers are subject to large amounts of heat produced by the machines. If not addressed properly, this can cause servers to break down in the long run. Data centers typically call for a constantly cold temperature—something possible with the use of storage containers. The metal walls conduct cold air to easily tone down hot temperatures arising from increased server load. Moreover, servers aren’t only protected inside—but also from outside elements. Metal storage containers are waterproof and windproof, so vital server components remain safe and dry—no matter what season.


It is a common fact of life that calamities strike at the most unexpected times. Thus, it is best for everyone to be prepared including government agencies and federal departments. Calamities paralyze vital government operations, and this can affect disaster recovery efforts. People would not be able to go to government offices and the latter would be closed due to the calamity, so it’s important that government functions remain uninterrupted even in disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods.

Our portable storage containers are made in such a way that they can contribute to risk reduction and post-disaster recovery efforts. Put a storage container with a command center setup on the back of a flatbed truck, and government efforts for post-disaster recovery can progress once more. Both government agencies and non-government organizations will benefit from the use of mobile command centers in times of need. Delivering relief goods, rescuing trapped victims, and tending to victims that need medical attention is now possible—all thanks to the mobile command center.
