Modified & Custom Shipping Containers

When your storage container needs a little something extra, just let us know. Container modifications are just one of the many options we offer. Many of our office locations have modification (or ‘mod’) shops to take a normal shipping container and turn it into something special, like a custom office, a retail shop, or even restroom. Many of Pac-Van’s offices can make container modifications, such as adding roll-up doors, adding a vent, installing overhead lighting, electrical outlets or even a finished restroom.

Common shipping container modifications include:

  • Man Doors
  • Windows
  • Pass-Through Windows
  • Window Guards
  • Insulation
  • Interior Finishes
  • Shelving
  • Electrical Outlets
  • HVAC
  • Plumbing
  • Built-In Furniture
  • Roll Up Doors
  • Overhead lighting
  • Restrooms
  • Lighting- Both Indoor and Out

We’ve recently rolled out our solar lighting kits, which helps to keep your team members safe, especially if they’re working in low light, before dawn or after the sun sets for the day.  These can be installed inside or outside of the container. Check out our solar lighting video below.

These modifications can help turn standard containers into one of the following custom containers:

  • Site Offices
  • Guard Shacks
  • Weigh Stations (Aggregates, Mines, Ports, Highway, etc.)
  • In-Plant Offices
  • Cooling Stations
  • Break Rooms/ Lunch Rooms (can include heating and air conditioning, running water and furniture for your staff”s comfort)

We like to work with our customers to create modified shipping containers to provide the right solution to the challenge they’re facing. When some plumbers shared with us that storing their pipes was challenging, we created custom shipping containers for them. In the plumbing industry, an uncut pipe measures in at just over 21’. Those can’t be stored in a 20’ container without being cut, but a 40’ container leaves a lot of space empty, and sometimes the job site just can’t fit a 40’ container. Pac-Van’s Plumber’s Boxes take 20′ storage containers and turns them into modified shipping containers by adding 2’ by 4’ extensions to one end, effectively making these 22’ containers. The insides of these custom shipping containers are equipped with a racking system for pipes, which can then be folded and secured flush to the side walls when not in use.

Clearly the possibilities are endless with storage containers mods.  If you have a need or desire, we are here to help.  Contact us to discuss how you’d like to use your container and what modifications you’d like to see made by filling out our online Request for Quote or by calling us at 1-800-587-1784; we’ll respond promptly with our proposal and quote.
