Shipping Container Ideas For Your Home

If you want to renovate your home but you don’t know where to start, why not try one of our shipping containers? With the right approach, we can add features you’ll love for years to come

Summerhouses and Playrooms
When your family is growing, using a shipping container to create a playroom or summer house is a cost-effective solution to moving house. We can paint the interior, add windows, and ventilate it. All you need to do is add the furniture.

Shipping Container Uses For Your Business

When your business is growing, taking an innovative approach to its development will heighten your profits. Some of the ways you can use our shipping containers include:

  • Create a portable billboard. With a little branding, your container will act as a portable billboard. If you want to broaden your business’s exposure, you can move it from place to place.
  • Produce a temporary training space. When you’re adding new employees to your business and you don’t have anywhere to train them, hire one of our containers. You can also use them for seminars or a series of events. Using a container is more flexible than hiring a local meeting space, and it may be more cost-effective.
  • Gather more stock. Whether you’re importing more items in preparation for key seasons or testing a new product, you can use one of our temporary shipping containers to store your stock. With sturdy locks, you can feel confident your items will remain safe.

Whether you’re a Darwin business owner trying to grow or a resident expanding their living space, Shipping Containers Darwin are happy to help. Just get in touch with a member of the Port Shipping Containers team on 1300 957 709.
