Mobility and Flexibility:

One of the key benefits of shipping containers is their mobility. They can be easily transported to different locations, making them ideal for businesses that require a temporary presence at events, markets, or various sites. ContainerCo are experts at relocating containers throughout the country and would be happy to help you with transportation. 

Quick Setup:

Modified shipping containers can be rapidly transformed and outfitted to meet your business needs.

Our friendly team of experts can help you choose from a 10ft, 20ft or 40ft dry shipping container to get your business started!


As your business grows, you can add more modified shipping containers to your setup, creating additional space without disrupting your existing operations. We have a great range of containers in different sizes and styles that can help you expand your set-up.

Branding and Marketing:

Customised containers can serve as unique branding opportunities. You can design the exterior of the container to reflect your brand’s identity and attract attention from potential customers. Visit our gallery to see some of the designs our happy customers have used for their shipping containers.

Remote Locations:

For businesses operating in remote or challenging environments, shipping containers can provide a durable and secure workspace or storage solution.

Temporary or Seasonal Needs:

If your business experiences seasonal demand fluctuations, modified containers can be utilised during peak periods and stored when not needed.

Security and Durability:

Shipping containers are built to withstand harsh weather conditions and are made from sturdy materials, providing a secure and durable option for storing goods or equipment. Read more about the best tips for maintaining your shipping container here.


Repurposing shipping containers for your business can be considered an environmentally friendly choice since you’re reusing existing structures rather than constructing new ones.


Shipping containers can be tailored to your specific requirements. You can add features like windows, doors, insulation, ventilation, lighting, plumbing, and electrical systems.

Temporary or Permanent Structures:

Depending on your business needs, modified shipping containers can be used as temporary installations for events or as permanent fixtures in your business operations.

Some examples of businesses that can benefit from modified shipping containers include retail shops, cafes, restaurants, offices, construction sites, event organisers, disaster relief organisations, and more. Before investing in modified shipping containers, carefully assess your business goals, space requirements, and local regulations to ensure that they align with your plans.
