Containers First, Australia’s leading provider of storage space solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial purposes, now offers the new Minicube container, a smaller version of the company’s sturdy steel containers, as a storage solution for clients who are facing problems with limited space. The company, which specialises in providing high quality brand new and second-hand shipping containers for sale, believes that this new product can help alleviate the growing problem with limited space among Australian companies and residents. Company representatives believe that besides providing ample yet compact space for storage, the undersized container can also be used as a functional workstation for skilled labourers or a garden shed for residential customers.
Speakers from Containers First assert that the Minicube container offers the same level of security and strength as those of the company’s traditional storage products, and that it is similar in terms of structure and materials used. The cube is reinforced with a steel frame and lined with timber flooring, while walls are made using corrugated steel. The miniature container’s double doors also open at the same 270 degrees as its full-sized counterparts. The main feature that sets the Minicube apart is its size:
“At just 2.3m by 2.3m, Containers First's Minicube container is less than half the size of a standard shipping container. This enables it to fit in tight spaces with a small footprint,” states one representative from Containers First.
Besides offering the same quality of storage as conventional steel containers, the Minicube is also built with features that ensure comfort and safety when used as a workstation or garden shed. These features include vents on the top and bottom of sidewalls as well as an internal emergency door release.
Customers who wish to add special features to the Minicube to make it more viable for non-storage use can also do so using the company’s services. Air-conditioned units can be installed to keep the cube interior cool, especially during Australia’s hot summers, while whirly birds can help maintain the temperature at a comfortable level for work by letting fresh air in. Despite its small size, the Minicube can also be fitted with shelving, a feature that may be truly useful for Australian tradies.
In addition to the new Minicube, Containers First also offers another limited space storage solution in the 3m Pallet Wide container, a steel box that is slightly higher and wider than a standard shipping container:
“These shipping containers are not only 30cm higher than the standard general purpose container but are an extra 6cm wider. This allows for two Australian standard pallets to sit side by side on the floor, making the 3m Pallet Wide container ideal for transport items and storage of two pallet-wide cargo, all while providing a storage option for those with limited space,” proudly states one company representative.
Containers First, Australia’s foremost company specialising in container sales and hires, aims to continue the company’s remarkable 25-year career in the shipping industry by offering not just high quality containers, but also innovative new products like the Minicube to address current trends in shipping and construction.
