What can Shipping Containers do other than Ship Goods?

Have you ever wondered what becomes of a shipping container once it serves its purpose of delivering goods from one continent to another? Although shipping containers are said to have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, they seem to be immortal in terms of expiration. The growing awareness of budget and eco-friendly practices across the globe has led to an equal interest in shipping containers.

Today, shipping containers have hundreds of other applications apart from the delivery of goods only, including restaurants, storage space, temporary shelter homes and even personal luxury homes. Due to their low cost and tough structure, they are often used to provide space for offices in environments like construction sites. There is a huge demand in developing countries for the use of shipping containers as office buildings and storage spaces.

In the UK, shipping containers are being used to provide shelter for the homeless. In London, there are apartment complexes built entirely out of shipping containers, which costs 40% less than other flats of the same size in the vicinity. In New Zealand, following a devastating earthquake that left half of Christchurch destroyed, a new shopping centre recently opened that is made up of shipping containers.

ConGlobal provides modified and refurbished containers throughout the US. This includes containers for offices, homes, military solutions (such as barracks) and even storage spaces. However, if you have an idea in your mind which is not mentioned here, do not hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to come up with a customised container plan as per your request.
