Shipping Container Modifications

What does it really means when we hear the phrase "Container modifications or Shipping container customization?".

As shipping containers mechanics we take that phrase "Container Mods" as adding or removing components from the container or combining containers together to full fill a customer needs. It doesn't matter what the mod is. What really matters is the customers need.

These shipping containers can be of any type, size and height such as.

  1. Standard Size Shipping Container
  2. High Cube Shipping Container
  3. Open Top Shipping Container
  4. Refrigerated Shipping Container

Now shipping container modification could be as simple as installing a lock box on the right side door or as big as converting the container to a living quarters.

Actually we have done a much more complex container modification than a living space. Not long a go we converted a 40 foot shipping container to a mobile and standalone server room that was completely insulated, Self-sustaining cooling system, Automatic fire safety system, Security doors & cameras and so much more.

This one container modification took over 2 months to complete having a team of:

  1. Design engineer
  2. Certified electrician
  3. Certified Cooling & Air conditioning technician
  4. Steel fabricators
  5. Fire system technician

By the time the container modification was done. The only thing missing was the actual servers. Which were installed after the container was delivered to it's final location.
