3 Reasons to Use Construction Trailers Made from Shipping Containers
Marissa Morin | Jul 7, 2021
For many years, construction companies have benefited from construction trailers. These trailers accommodate office and storage needs on-site at construction projects to help improve on-site operations, organization, and efficiency. While construction companies often default to traditional travel construction trailers, choosing to use modified shipping containers offers construction companies a durable, portable, and customizable solution.
To understand why your construction company should use shipping container construction trailers, let’s look at the following three reasons.
Container Construction Trailers are Durable
It’s difficult to beat the durability of modified shipping containers. Container manufacturers design them to travel across the ocean carrying important cargo. The global economy relies heavily on the durability of shipping containers to import and export goods of all kinds, so it’s safe to say that durability is inherent for shipping containers. Even after manufacturing teams modify shipping containers into offices and storage spaces, the impressive durability remains, allowing organizations to benefit from limited wear and tear.
Your choice to use a container-based construction trailer will allow you to remain confident that the unit will last your construction organization a long time, keep its contents protected from the elements, and securely store materials over the course of your construction project. Shipping containers remain in top condition for 25+ years, so as your organization works on new projects, a shipping container construction trailer will continue to serve your company.
Container Construction Trailers are Portable
Shipping containers are designed with corner castings and forklift pockets that allow for easy movement by crane and forklift. The ability to simply hook a crane to each of the top four corners allows modified containers to be dropped into hard-to-reach construction sites. Additionally, containers fit easily onto a bed of a semi-truck, making transportation easy – even when modified into an office or storage space. If you need to relocate your container construction trailer to the other side of a construction project or even to an entirely different city, you can easily transport it, feeling confident that it’ll arrive in one piece.
Container Construction Trailers are Customizable
A modified shipping container is yours to customize and own. If you’re having difficulty finding a construction trailer to rent that meets all of your needs, purchasing a modified container will allow you to request modifications that will most benefit your company. Whether you need to add an extra door, window, or a half bathroom, a modified container manufacturer will consult with you to design the right unit to meet your needs. Consider the branding possibilities as well – apply your logo or graphics so it functions as an advertisement for those driving by your projects.
