Once it has finished life on the sea or road, a used container 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.

Converting a high cube container

The extra foot in height that a High Cube container has makes it ideal for modifications. Therefore, they are perfect for workrooms, garden sheds, a separate office, or even extra accommodation. Furthermore, 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.

Repurposing a side opening container

Side opening shipping containers are also a popular container for modifications. Little more needs to be done to them to have a workable space except a few windows or the like. For a completely rustic look, you simply need to open the doors up wide. This creates a great space for an art gallery, retail space, market shop or exhibition container. An electrical fit out and a few items of furniture can turn them into fully functioning site offices, media centres, festival stands, retail shops, ticket booth or exhibition space. Easy, inexpensive and – the most important part – transportable!
