Shipping Container Garages

Shipping Container Garages

If you have more stuff than you have storage, it’s time to consider additional exterior storage space. You can get custom shipping container sheds and garages built to suit your needs fast with ModBetter. We proudly serve the greater New York Metro area and strive to help our customers find sustainable solutions for their storage problems with custom container buildings.

From ready-to-use templates to bespoke consulting for custom projects, we’re here to bring your vision to life.

Customizable Storage and Workshop Space

Many homes and businesses across the country need more storage space. Mechanics, handymen, and landscaping company owners need additional car garages for ongoing projects and workshop space. Homeowners want sturdy sheds to store tools and equipment for home maintenance projects. Hobbyists want a secure space to work with lathes, electric saws, and kilns.

The issue with adding exterior storage space for your tools, equipment, and materials is that these are often expensive. You want to protect your investments from harsh weather conditions and potential thieves or vandals. A simple plastic or vinyl shed won’t be sturdy enough to resist high winds, constant UV exposure from the sun, or human tampering.

What many people need are shipping container sheds and garages. Made from corrugated steel, shipping containers offer a durable and secure solution for exterior storage sheds, additional garage space, agricultural storage, or hobbyist workshops. At ModBetter, we use multi-point locking door handles to secure your valuables.

You can also get a range of customization options, including:

20- or 40-foot container or high-cube container

Standard doors

Roll-up doors


Electrical and lighting

HVAC installation

Interior finishing (floors, walls, insulation, etc.)

And more

Whether you want to add a workshop to your back yard, create your own mancave to have a place to get away and enjoy some me-time, or add space for the vehicles you can’t fit inside your garage, a custom container building offers the perfect solution.

Popular Shipping container options

Shipping containers are popular for creating additional storage options and workspaces around your home or business. When you need a place to store extra tools, large equipment, lawnmowers, cars, or motorcycles, a shipping container shed or garage could be the perfect solution.

Many people choose shipping container sheds and garages for:

Exterior garages for second or third cars, winter motorcycle storage, or riding mower and equipment storage.

Agricultural storage buildings for tack rooms, hay and feed storage, and custom barn and livestock shed solutions.

Hobby workshops or home-based business workspaces for carpentry, ceramics, welding, fabric weaving, fabric dying, clothes making, airbrush painting, resin pouring, and other creative business models.

Studios for content creators who stream on Twitch, produce YouTube content, or create TikTok videos.

Mancaves to keep pool tables, big-screen TVs, and beer coolers ready for a guys’ night in.

No matter the reason for needing additional storage at your home or business location, a container building can offer customizable space in a secure steel building to protect your equipment, technology, machinery, and materials. Whether you want a space for personal enjoyment or an industrial endeavor, a shipping container shed or garage could offer the solution you need. You can also customize your options for maximum comfort. If you intend to use your building as a workshop, add an air conditioning and heating system so you can work in your shop or hobby room year-round. Keep it industrial for work, or add wall coverings and windows for hobby spaces or personal enjoyment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shipping container buildings are residential, business, or storage buildings made from steel shipping containers. They are highly customizable to suit whatever you need them for and extremely affordable compared to hiring contractors to erect a new construction building on-site.

You can customize your shipping container shed or garage with windows, standard or rolling doors, exterior coverings, drywall, temperature control, and additional features to suit your purposes.

Shipping containers make excellent sheds and second garages but are also wonderful options for temporary offices, tiny houses, portable bathroom facilities, concession stands, outdoor bars, pop-up restaurants, multi-unit storage buildings, and other small buildings.

We can also stack and conjoin multiple containers to create larger offices and homes, rooftop bars and seating areas, entertainment areas, and full-sized restaurants with interior dining and a rooftop patio.

With appropriate maintenance, your shipping container building could easily last over 25 years. Occasional washing with a mild detergent and a hose is often all you’ll need to maintain your building. You should occasionally inspect the roof to look for signs of leaks, mold, or rust. Standing water and UV rays can eat away at the protective coating on the roof faster than the rest of the building.

Made from corrugated steel, shipping container buildings can resist high winds, heavy snow piles, and constant sun exposure without damage. However, you should consider paint touchups around scratches or other marks to prevent rust from forming. Rust can eat away at the steel and weaken your building if allowed to spread.
