The most important benefit of using a customized shipping container is their longevity. Companies that invest in a container for storage, office space, or any other reason will have a low initial investment. Additionally, they will benefit from an extended period of use from the unit.
Shipping Containers Have Extreme Longevity
Shipping containers are built to withstand harsh conditions. Their steel walls must be able to withstand the weight of eight additional fully packed containers being stacked on top without buckling or shifting. These containers must also be built well enough to endure severe weather conditions while out to sea.
Current shipping containers are designed to be used under extreme conditions for at least 25 years. However, due to the cost of returning these empty containers to their point of origin, most containers are used only once.
When Portables360 makes a shipping container available, a majority of these containers are only a few months old. In fact, some are only several weeks old. When the container is repurposed, the new owners can expect at least 25 years of use from the container! Shipping container longevity makes them perfect for storage as well as other applications.
Other Applications for Shipping Containers
Businesses that need additional storage areas will benefit from converted containers. You can create cold or warm storage from a container and locate it anywhere on your property. Containers can be completely customized. The cost is significantly less than building a new structure or moving the business to a new location.
A company that needs a mobile office or temporary office space will love the cost. Ease of customizing a container is another benefit. Creating office space is yet another application. Containers are physically stronger than mobile homes. They will last the business for a much longer time. Regardless of whether the container is continually moved to new locations, shipping container longevity is not a concern.
A final way that containers can help save a company money is repurposing a business container. If you need cold storage now and a mobile office later, you can easily convert the container. Its new purpose will be of minimal cost.
