The Benefits of a Shipping Container Office

Shipping Container OfficesThinking of converting a shipping container into a highly functional, bespoke and innovative office space? If so, you are not alone, as this is a project that many people are currently undertaking with more container conversions being completed than ever before. Here are our top reasons why shipping container offices are increasing in popularity.



In this day and age, it is vital that we all do our bit to become more environmentally friendly, and this is a huge advantage of shipping container offices. Converting an unused shipping container into an office space is a great way to do your bit for the environment and give new life and purpose to a container that was spending its life gathering dust.


Fully Customisable:

Just like any brand new office, you will be able to customise your shipping container office however you wish. Doors and windows can be added easily without any issues, whilst rooms and walls can also be added based on your requirements and needs, ensuring that your container office includes all the usual benefits that a standard office would contain but at a fraction of the cost when compared to building a brand new permanent office building.



Wish you relocate your office to a different location? No problem. Shipping container offices can easily be transported as and when you wish, which is another huge advantage when compared to permanent office buildings.


Suits Permanent and Temporary Needs:

Whether you are looking for a permanent or a temporary office solution, converted shipping containers meet both requirements perfectly. Although you may wish for your container office to remain in one location, there will be times when a temporary solution is required, such as office spaces at construction sites, and this is another huge tick for container conversions.



You may think that a shipping container would be far too small for a working environment but, in most cases, you would be wrong. A small container would not being entirely suitable, therefore you would be best to give this option a miss but, when it comes to medium and large containers, these make the perfect office. Medium containers provide ideal space for 1-2 workers, with additional space then being available for general office storage required, such as filing cabinets, bookshelves and so on.

If you have more staff, or require additional storage space, a large container would provide ample room to meet your requirements.

Of course, if you have 10+ members of staff, converted shipping container offices would not be suitable due to the space available. However, if you are looking for a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and transportable office solution, you cannot go wrong with a shipping container office.
