We can modify the shipping/storage container you purchase from us to fit your unique requirements. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can assist you from start to finish with your custom container modifications needs. We offer wide range of custom modifications that are not limited to the products and options mentioned below.
Standard containers are designed and used for shipping and they are equipped with standard cargo doors on one end. Although the cargo doors are very functional installing an additional entry door can make accessing your items inside much easier. Here are most common door options we offer:
Roll up doors: They come in various sizes ranging from 4ft wide to 10ft wide. They are easy to operate, lockable galvanized steel doors.
Windows are inexpensive way to bring natural light into your container. Windows are available in various sizes. Although the security bars are optional we can install them if you choose to for additional security.
If you are buying a used container, applying paint is the best way to improve the aesthetics of the container. Fresh coat of paint also helps protect the surface from constant exposure to the elements. Just chose the color and we will take care of the rest.
Our new/one trip containers come equipped with factory built welded-on lock boxes but the standard used containers do not, leaving the padlock you put on the locking handles exposed. No worries, we offer bolt-on lock boxes that can be easily installed on your used containers and can provide additional security to help keep your valuable items secure. The padlock that is inside the lock box is not visible and is protected against being removed with bolt cutters.

- Can be easily installed, no welding required, all you have to do is drill four holes
- No painting required

Humidity and seasonal changes in most of the United States and Canada mean that the temperature during the day time and night time can vary greatly; and if you’re using a shipping container for portable storage, this range of difference in temperatures can lead to condensation build up and may cause damage to the items that you’re storing inside. You have a few options to accomplish your different goals:
The pre-installed container vents. Containers come with passive vents already installed on them. They are passive vents that are triple-screened to prevent insects from hitching a ride in your container. They also allow for pressure changes when the weather changes quickly. Most 20’s come with two vents – one on each side of the container, one by the door/back end and one by the front end. These take care of most venting needs as that is all that is necessary when shipping in containers. However, they do not encourage air to flow throughout the container.
The best way to manage condensation is to manage the air flow and keep the inside and outside of the container the same, or close to the same, temperature. These vents will help keep the air moving in your container and help prevent moisture buildup. While providing great ventilation their screen prevents any rodents or insects from entering your container.
If you go this route, we recommend putting at least two of them in the container – one on either side of the container and put them on opposite ends of the container to encourage as much air flow as possible. Two vents are sufficient for heat issues and four for bad moisture issues or extreme heat. Adding four of these vents, two on each end of the container, allows an ample amount of airflow and does a great job keeping the contents of the container dry.
These Insta Vents with screen are easy to install within 30 minutes. They are powder coated for durability and require no welding or painting. They are designed to be mounted right under the top rail of the container on the side panels to let the hot air out as heat rises to the top of your container. This helps pull cold air from the floor of the container to the top of the container, drastically reducing heat.
We sell them in pairs; pack of two vents in each shipping box.Specs:

Installation or fabrication should never be done until you have the product in hand to take exact measurements. Installation may require some fabrication experience and in no way does the warranty cover installation mistakes.

Heat/AC units. If you aren’t as worried about air flow from outside getting into your container, but you are more interested in the temperature of the air, consider a heat/AC unit. One 12,000 BTU unit can keep a 40’ container that has been insulated nice and toasty warm in a cold Midwestern winter. They can also cool a container right down in super-hot weather. If you go this route, make sure you put a cage around the unit on the outside of the container. It will keep people from popping out the unit and getting access to your container.
These brackets allow you to maximize the usable space inside your shipping/storage container quickly and easily. The brackets provide immense shelf space and rigid stock storage without interfering with valuable floor space. They provide superior strength while not being bulky and heavy. Our brackets pay for themselves in labor saving the first time they are used. Think about the saving achieved when they are used over and over again. All Insta container shelves are powder coated for durability, and longevity. Do not be fooled by imitations, these container shelves are the original and cannot be duplicated. They are made to hang from the D Rings in your shipping / storage container. Placing one bracket per D Ring creates a consistent shelf for the length of your container.
This particular shelving unit with three tiers is designed to hold two 2x10" (or 12") pieces of construction grade wood per shelf providing a 18 1/2″ deep shelf. Depending on the weight of items needed to store you can choose to use other materials for shelving as well. Each Shelf Bracket is about 61" Tall x 22" (26" for 2"x12") Deep x 1" Wide and includes the lower shelf bracket support. The load rating is 550 lbs. per bracket arm and 1100 lbs. per bracket. Two brackets means you have 2200 lbs. loading capacity. This shelf allows for items as large as 32" tall to be stored on the floor under the shelves (Height may vary slightly per container).

- 2"x12" Shelves are 25" Deep (from wall to outside edge. actual shelf floor is depth of two 2"x12"s)
- 1) HANG BRACKETS: Insert shelving bracket hangers into container’s top rail D-Rings
- 2) INSERT STABILIZERS: Insert stabilizer member into the stabilizer receiver
- 3) INSTALL SHELF BOARDS: Take two same size boards and line them up with each other. Place them side-by-side evenly across the braces. Form an upside V with the boards then press into place. This locks the boards into their shelf brackets.
