Mining Camps | Shipping Container Mining Camp Accommodation

Mining Camps

Conditions can be extreme in a mining worksite, and any sort of equipment needs to stand up to the rigours of bumpy terrain, long distances, constant moves and severe weather conditions. The solution? Shipping container accommodation. Port Shipping Containers offer a range of accommodation shipping containers that are perfect for mining camps.

It is ironic that a container that was initially designed to withstand the wild conditions of a sea voyage could become so popular as an accommodation container in harsh inland climates, but shipping containers are indeed a versatile breed, and their portable and sturdy nature makes them the ideal candidate to withstand the rigours of a mining camp.

Completely Portable

Along with their strong and rugged nature, the real beauty of shipping container accommodation is, of course, its portable and transportable nature. Being able to ship accommodation in and out of temporary mine sites has been a boon for the mining industry – indeed, any industry where on-site temporary accommodation is required. Their modular and stackable nature adds an extra level of convenience, especially where space is a concern.

Save on Expensive Rents and Transport Costs

Housing your workers close onsite also solves the logistics problem of transporting large numbers of workers. It can solve a number of other problems too, including the administration and expense involved in renting houses, motels, pubs and caravan parks, not to mention the very real problem of no vacancies anywhere in town, and escalating costs when demand exceeds supply.

Ideal for Student Housing, Farms, Holiday Accommodation and More

Of course our accommodation containers are not just for mining camps. Student housing, holiday accommodation, farms with seasonal workers and properties with wwoofers can benefit from shipping container accommodation as well.
