Benefits of Portable Workshops

There are many benefits of purchasing a container workshop. Below are just a few:

Portable: Shipping container workshops are an increasingly popular choice for business owners who need a mobile or portable workspace. Made from repurposed shipping containers, these workshops can be easily moved to any location, making them ideal for businesses that frequently change worksites or that need to be able to respond quickly to customer needs.

Durability: Shipping containers are extremely durable inside and out. They can withstand harsh weather conditions and the wear and tear of heavy machinery. They are built tough to last many years.

Cost Effective: Converting a shipping container into a workshop can be a fraction of the cost of building a traditional workshop, and you can often find containers for sale at very reasonable prices. In addition, container workshops can be easily relocated if necessary, and they are extremely durable, which means they require little maintenance.

Customizable: Shipping container workshops can also be modified to meet the specific needs of your business, with a wide range of interior finishes and layout options. We will work with you to modify your container to include every item you need.

Security: For the most part, workshops are located outside in commercial or industrial lots which can make them suspectable to break-ins. Shipping containers are made of high-grade steel, which makes them very difficult to break into, watertight, fireproof, and weatherproof. In addition, we can install locking mechanisms that make it even more difficult for intruders to gain access or cause damage.

Eco-friendly: When a 40-ft shipping container is used, you are repurposing about 8,000 pounds of steel.

You My Need a Permit

Before you get us to start building your container workshop, check with your local municipality to see if you need a permit. The permit process can take time, so it’s wise to start the process early.
