SIDE LOADING SHIPPING CONTAINERS
Side opening shipping containers are similar to general purpose containers, but, along with the standard double doors at the end of the container, one side of the container has heavy duty double bi-fold doors. This gives easier access to goods and stored items and makes side opening shipping containers popular for their ‘drive-in’ convenience, especially when forklifts are used. At Shipping Containers Brisbane we have standard 20-foot side opening containers readily available, whilst 40 foot side opening containers can be modified on request.
As a side loading shipping container will need space on the loading side for the doors to open, careful siting of the container is required if you want to utilise the side access.
MODIFYING A GENERAL PURPOSE SHIPPING CONTAINER IS EASY
There are many additions or modifications you can make to your container, and our accessories list gives you a good idea of the most requested modification items. Whirlybirds, air vents, windows, shelving, power-points and data points, work benches, bathrooms, fluorescent lights, paintwork and more are all available. Your modifications can be as small (lockbox, shelves, flooring etc) or as extensive (entire residential fit out, including bathroom, kitchen, and laundry) as you want. If you have a grander idea in mind – an envy-inducing, customer-attracting trade show exhibit, for instance, or a movable feast of food festival booths, then we can also help. Shipping Containers Brisbane have one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia and a talented team of modification experts, so your shipping container can be customised to your specific needs with ease.
CONVERTING A HIGH CUBE CONTAINER
The extra foot in height that a High Cube container has makes it ideal for modifications. High cube containers are perfect for workrooms, garden sheds, a separate office, or even extra accommodation. High cube shipping containers are also popular for shipping container homes. Along with their added foot in height, their strong, stackable, modular features give so many opportunities to create an exciting environmentally-friendly, wallet-friendly home-office or granny flat.
