We make it a point to listen to our customers and to provide customizable storage solutions that meet their unique and specific needs. We have modified everything from simple tool sheds to highly complex container complexes.

Shipping Container Workshop – Filling the Niche

One of our customers needed a solution to their onsite workplace needs. They wanted an enclosed area away from the elements that would provide adequate lighting in which to work and securely store all of their tools for their jobsite. With this in mind, our Indianapolis branch created a custom container workshop.

Our 20’ portable workshop container is customized to facilitate work on-site and is designed to solve a wide range of customer needs- from secure tool and equipment storage to workshop space with lighting. Our standard version is equipped with a variety of options, including lighting, shelving, a workbench, and wall hooks.

All of our workshop containers are available for rent or for purchase

A great advantage of the workshop container is that it can be placed anywhere and moved easily. Our drivers have plenty of experience delivering units into tight spaces and can work with you to ensure that your container office is placed exactly where you need it. Thanks to shipping containers’ tough nature, workshop containers are wind, water, and vermin proof, making them resilient in the roughest of work environments.

Regardless of your worksite needs, Pac-Van can provide the portable shipping container solution you need to get the job done right! Whether you require a workbench and equipment rack or a couple of drafting tables – we can modify new or used storage containers to suit your needs.
