At Shipping Containers Melbourne we have both new and used general purpose 10 foot containers available.

People use these containers most commonly for shipping, storage and converting. We can also modify and customise your 10 foot shipping containers to your exact specifications. Simple items can include extra doors, windows, shelves, air-vents, and painting. Complete conversions are possible for roadshow exhibits, accommodation, container cafes, shops and bars.

Strength and versatility are key characteristics of 10 foot shipping containers

Simple and versatile, general shipping containers are exceptionally strong and nigh-on-indestructible. Experts have designed them to withstand hundreds of long sea or rail journeys. Additionally, they withstand the the constant transfer from ship to truck to train to warehouse (and vice versa). This strength and versatility of the general purpose containers makes them popular for purposes other than shipping as well.

Once a general purpose shipping container has finished life on the sea or road, it retains its usefulness. It can still be used for many years in other capacities. Some will have spent many years travelling long distances, whilst others may have only done one or two trips. Whatever their travelling history, you can be sure that if you buy a used or second hand general purpose container from Shipping Containers Melbourne, it will be in good condition.

Modifying your shipping container

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 Melbourne have one of the largest container modification facilities in Australia and a talented team of modification experts, so your 10 foot shipping containers can be customised to your specific needs with ease.
