3 Ways to Use Shipping Containers for Storage

Everybody needs a little bit of space. Whether your home is a bit cluttered, or you want a little bit of extra room, a storage container can solve your problems. You may be thinking that storage units are inconvenient to drive to, but did you know that you have a unit installed right on your property? 

Shipping Container Storage Shelves

Shipping containers are extremely versatile and can be used to store just about anything. Commercial storage containers are even great for at-home expansions. If you’re short on space, then a container storage unit may be a great option for you. Here are three simple and innovative uses for at-home storage containers. 


If your home doesn’t have a garage, then a storage container may be the thing for you. You can organize your tools, lawn chairs, barbecue, and other difficult to store items in the unit. With secure locks and climate-controlled technology, your items will be always safe. And buying your own unit rather than renting one will save you plenty of money in the long run.

If you have a backyard garden full of fruits, vegetables, or flowers, chances are you have many items to store. Wheelbarrows, shovels, and fertilizer scattered throughout the yard may take away from the beauty of your garden. Additionally, improperly stored lawn tools may also be exposed to harsh weather conditions, causing them to rust quickly.  

A shipping container shed can provide you with an aesthetically pleasing storage option to house all your garden equipment. They are wind and weather tight to keep out the rain and critters. You’ll be glad to have one. 


If you’ve got a business that requires travel, then a mobile office may suit your needs. Arrange your container's inside into a functioning office and add a glass side for a window. Now you’ve got a stylish office that is portable. At that point, there is no need to pack and ship your office furniture when you need to get up and go; simply lock up and ship the storage container.
