Cargo Storage Containers

Cargo Storage Containers

If you’ve ever visited a sea port, or seen one on TV, you’ll already be familiar with cargo storage containers: they’re the variously coloured large metal boxes which are loaded with goods and then taken around the world as part of a ship's cargo. What you may not realise is that you’ve probably also seen cargo storage containers in a variety of other guises and put to various other uses. If you’re sceptical, consider that steel cargo storage containers are frequently used in the following ways:

  • Storage of wet, dry, refrigerated or frozen goods
  • Storage of building materials, equipment, furniture, documents etc
  • Storage of chemicals
  • Haulage of bulky goods
  • Conversion to building site offices or security guard houses
  • Conversion to smoking shelter
  • Conversion to sports ground clubhouses or dugouts
  • Conversion to tack rooms or pony stables

Why are Cargo Storage Containers so Popular?

You’re probably way ahead of us here, but the answer is undoubtedly versatility. Essentially a reinforced steel box, the cargo storage container is available from a wide variety of suppliers and can be converted to numerous functions easily. They also, if left intact, retain their resale value as long as they remain rust-free.
