Configuration Inspiration for Onsite Storage Containers

True to our motto, we want to help you think inside the box. At first glance, storage seems straight forward, but think about all the options for organization, climate control, and points of access. Here are just a few ways we’ve repurposed conex boxes into onsite storage containers.

All the onsite storage solutions below are:

  • Relocatable.
  • Turnkey.
  • Fast to deploy.
  • Available as 40-foot containers.

1. Partitioned Onsite Storage Container for Construction

Partition walls can divide a 20-foot container into as many as four spaces. Employers can ensure people only access tools and files related to their work by creating a separate locked access door for each section.

2. Storage with Workshop Space

Deploy rental equipment stored in the container and take notes on where it goes at the built-in workshop. Businesses can open the cargo doors to turn their container into a space for inventory and business.


3. A Mobile Welding Shop

The sheltered space also allows welders to work when the weather or wind isn’t cooperating. Containers can come with 220 V outlets and connect to a generator. Adding overhead doors also makes it easy to open the shop for ventilation.

4. Climate Controlled Dry Goods Storeroom

Proper sealing and humidity controls can protect paperwork from insects and mold.

6. The Mobile Garage for Sensitive Machinery

Generators, lights, and sensitive electronic tools will stay in optimal condition longer when stored in a climate-controlled garage space. We’ve even seen a pro-am racing team store their Porsche 911 in a mobile container garage.


7. Athletic Storage for Schools

Placing a storage container directly onsite at the soccer field or beside the gymnasium is a fast way expand athletic program capacity.
