Shipping Container Project Ideas

Home Storage

If your attic or garage looks a bit cluttered lately, you can reclaim your space with a shipping container. You’ll have plenty of room to store holiday decorations, exercise equipment, clothing, and family heirlooms.

Plus, you’ll have easy access to your things when you need them. It’s way more convenient than driving to the storage facility.

Mobile Offices

It may surprise you to know that shipping containers make excellent temporary office spaces when you’re renovating your building. You can keep your shipping container on-site where it’s convenient for employees and customers.

Outfit your container with electrical wiring, insulation, and climate control to help your office workers stay comfortable.

Agriculture and Livestock

Shipping containers allow livestock owners to keep cattle, horses, and poultry safe and healthy. They’re tough enough to fend off livestock thieves and predators, and it’s easy to keep them clean.

You can also add vents and air conditioning to keep your livestock cool during the hot summer months.


Construction sites are prime targets for theft. Don’t leave your expensive equipment and tools exposed for the taking — protect them with a theft-resistant shipping container!

These containers are roomy enough to store large equipment with space to spare.

Portable restrooms

If you’re planning an event or a construction job at a site that lacks restrooms, we can transform a shipping container into a portable restroom for you. Go beyond standard portable toilets with air conditioning, windows, and interior finishes.

Concesstion Stands

Event attendees need a place to rest and enjoy a cold beverage in the shade. With a ModBetter pop-up concession stand, your business can draw crowds and bring in profits wherever your customers are.

School Storage

ModBetter containers are a smart choice for schools that need a little extra storage room. With a container, your school can store playground equipment, computers, books, and supplies that take up space in your building.

Need a temporary place for kids to study? No problem! Shipping containers make great temporary classrooms.

You can transform a shipping container into a cozy shop that will have customers flocking to your door. Plus, unlike a brick-and-mortar store, you’re not restricted to where you set up shop. And because you own your container, you’ll find the investment pays for itself in no time.
