Modified Containers

Nobody knows how to modify shipping containers quite like Port. We have an extensive range of modified shipping containers available, such as site offices, switch rooms, accommodation containers, first aid rooms and ablution blocks, ready to order. And for those businesses that require a little extra detailing, we can also install additional accessories and customisations to your modified shipping container such as air conditioning, windows, extra doors, etc.

Special Project Modified Containers

If you’ve got a special project container modification in mind, then boy have you come to the right place! At Port we have one of the largest shipping container modification centres in Australia, and can turn an ordinary shipping container into something spectacularly new and different, like a café, art gallery, bush retreat, travelling exhibition stage or roadshow display, to name just a few. If you can dream it. We can build it! An eye-catching and portable shipping container conversion is the ideal way to add that extra wow factor to your business and really stand out from the crowd.

Off The Plan Modified Containers

When your business is expanding in a hurry, and you need an instant worksite solution, you don’t want to muck around. So we have a huge range of pre-designed modified shipping containers ready to order. Site rooms, first aid rooms, lunch rooms, switch rooms, ablution blocks, explosive magazines, confined space training containers, dangerous goods, accommodation containers…they’re all fully modified, fully transportable, and ready for transportation to your job site, stat.

Business just got bigger? Another site room or two might be just the answer. Hotels, motels, caravans and pubs near the mine site all full? Order in some fully-specked out container accommodation units and enjoy the savings and convenience. Working in the back of beyond? Remote ablution blocks to the rescue! Needing no power or water to operate, they’re a hygienic and efficient solution to what could be a potentially embarrassing problem. Whatever you need to keep your business or jobsite running smoothly (and your workers happy) can be easily and efficiently arranged with Port. And in most cases, we can have your modified container built to order and delivered in a matter of weeks.

Customised Shipping Container Modifications

Our ‘off-the-plan’ modified shipping containers are a quick and efficient way to expand your worksite in a hurry. However they may not be exactly right for your requirements, or you may want some adjustments made to suit your company’s individual needs. Not every site is the same after all, and not every job requires the same equipment. So one of the most practical services we offer at Port is the ability for you to customise a shipping container to your own specific requirements. You can choose from a long list of shipping container accessories to add to your modified shipping container, or our modification team can help you work out exactly what kind of modified container you require. They’ll listen to what you need, paying attention to all pertinent details (large and small) and will then work out the best way to create your customised shipping container requirements at an incredibly competitive price.

Types of Container Modifications Available

With modified shipping containers it’s pretty much a case of whatever you can imagine, we can build. The sky literally is the limit, as you’ll discover in our Modified Container Special Projects section. Not looking for something too complicated? Basic modifications are extremely popular, and easily arranged. Standard accessories and customisations include windows, doors, air conditioning, insulation, electrical and phone fit outs, kitchens, hot water systems, ensuites, paint and signage, shelving, specialty flooring and more. Shipping container modifications are so sophisticated now that you will often forget that you’re even in a modified container! But when it’s time to move sites, you’ll appreciate the convenience and portability they offer.

Container Special Projects

One of the most versatile and exciting services we offer is the ability to customise your shipping container into pretty much anything you desire. The more unusual, the more imaginative, the more we like it. People really respond to all the amazingly clever things that can be created out of shipping containers, and images and stories about them are shared all over the internet.

Perhaps you’re an artist who would like to exhibit around Australia? No unpacking or packing required – just move your portable art gallery to the next location. Already have a business but think a coffee cart in the car park might add value? We can create a specialised shipping container café very easily, just for you. Own a large farm or property with lots of machinery that need a lot of mechanical tinkering? A mobile shipping container workshop can help solve a lot of problems there, and our massive container shelters can add an impressive amount of extra protection and storage.

Music festivals, trade show exhibitions, consumer expos, travelling roadshows and promotional events can all benefit from our eye-catching display units. One of our latest container special projects for example involved creating a spectacular portable shipping container stage for a radio station promotion, which doubled as a secure storage facility when the stage wasn’t in use. A delightful dual purpose, win-win modification that can be used again and again.


Shipping containers have been used for thousands of different purposes around Australia, and new forms of ‘cargotecture’ as it is known, are popping up everywhere. Hotels, bars, markets, shopping centres, theatres, restaurants, housing – even swimming pools and saunas – are just some of the incredible uses that our shipping containers are being converted into.
