Containers First recently reported the growing interest in the use of shipping containers for additional storage. The company, with its 25 years of extensive knowledge and experience in the shipping container industry, is doing its part to meet the increasing demand for alternative storage options by offering used shipping containers as portable storage units. As more and more companies and individuals opt for mobile storage units built from quality materials instead of the usual fixed storage spaces, the company sees the potential in modifying shipping containers as an efficient solution to the growing problem in today’s storage industry.

In previous years, many businesses and individuals would have their excess household commodities and inventory products stored away in a safe storage room. This form of storage space for rent or lease is what is known as Self Storage. Most businesses that have employed this storage scheme initially did it to reduce costs by cutting traditional storage room in their business buildings. It also allowed retailers and wholesale businesses to implement effective off-site distribution. Unfortunately, competition and growing demands for storage area eventually led to higher rent costs and partitioning, which made it harder for a lot of companies to invest in large quantities of wholesale products. This eventually triggered the need for alternative storage space.

By taking advantage of the large supply and affordable shipping container prices, Containers First saw the idea of utilizing used shipping containers in the form of mobile storage units as a response to the current lack of adequate storage space. One of its representatives points out, “The popularity of used shipping containers is attributed to a wide range of benefits. One important feature of these containers is its high durability, as they were built to store various goods and commodities to be shipped to various places overseas. Moreover, they’re designed to promote proper insulation; they’re also fireproof and eco-friendly making them very good portable storage units for almost any kind of material. The way they were designed to stack on top of one another also proved to be a huge advantage for transporting and off-site distribution”.

The Containers First innovative team had predicted this growing demand for modified storage units and has succeeded in proving that shipping containers are definitely a more convenient and cost-effective alternative storage space option.
