Call us today and let’s get the ball rolling.

Modified 20 Ft Container
Roller Door & Electrical

A common request is to modify a new build 20 foot shipping container and install a roller door for side access, install electrical power points and lighting.

This is a really popular configuration for…

  • Agricultural Storage 
  • Onsite Workshops
  • Garden Shed’s
  • Secure lockups

This unit comes complete with a Warrant of Electrical Fitness (EWOF).

Simply connect your container to the mains via a caravan electrical plug and you have lighting and single-phase electricity via two internal power points.

Modified 40 Ft Container
Triple Roller Doors

For those with larger storage requirements, a modified 40ft shipping container with triple roller doors is a fantastic option.

This allows for the container to be divided but you retain access, without the heavy shipping container doors.

This is a really popular configuration for…

  • Container Shelters
  • Farming Workshops
  • Secure Construction Storage
  • etc.

Modified 20 Ft Container
Custom Signage & Shelving

What better way to advertise your business than to turn your modified shipping container into a billboard?

In this instance a popular building materials company has requested we add shelving for the different grades of timber for storage, and at the same time display their business logo and web address proudly.

A modified shipping container can be painted and sign written to your requirements.

Please be mindful that the cooler and sometimes wet South Island weather in winter can lengthen the drying time for custom paint work. So please plan for potentially longer lead times at different times of the year.
