What is a Shipping Container Self-Storage Facility?

A shipping container self-storage facility is a structure built primarily from shipping containers, specifically designed to store goods. These facilities are becoming increasingly popular due to their cost-effectiveness, durability, and versatility.
Shipping containers were initially designed for transporting goods across the globe on cargo ships. They are made from high-strength steel, making them incredibly durable and capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions and heavy loads. These characteristics make them ideal for use in constructing storage facilities.

The Advantages of Using Conex Containers over Traditional Building Materials

One of the main advantages of using Conex containers over traditional building materials is cost-effectiveness. Conex containers are often readily available at a lower cost than traditional building materials like wood, concrete, or brick. Additionally, since they are already assembled, the labor costs associated with constructing a storage facility from Conex containers are significantly lower than those associated with traditional construction methods.

Conex containers are made from high-quality steel, making them exceptionally sturdy and durable. They are designed to withstand harsh sea conditions, so they can easily handle extreme weather conditions on land. This durability ensures that goods stored within them are well protected from the elements. 
Conex containers are incredibly versatile. They come in various sizes, typically ranging from 20 feet to 45 feet in length, allowing for flexible design options when constructing a storage facility. The standard width of 8 feet and the core structural strength means Conex containers can be stacked on top of each other, creating multi-level storage facilities that maximize space usage. 
Using Conex containers to build storage facilities is also an environmentally friendly choice. Repurposing used shipping containers reduces the demand for new construction materials and decreases the amount of waste going into landfills. Furthermore, many Conex containers are made from recycled steel, contributing to a circular economy.

Conex containers significantly reduce the time it takes to build a storage facility. Since the containers come pre-assembled, they only need to be delivered and arranged according to the facility’s design. This process is much quicker than traditional construction methods, such as brick and mortar or steel framing, which involves building from the ground up.
Finally, Conex containers offer excellent security. Their robust steel construction makes them difficult to break into, providing an additional layer of protection for the goods stored within. New One Trip containers also come equipped with a lock box, offering further security.
In conclusion, the use of Conex containers in constructing self-storage facilities offers numerous advantages over traditional building materials. They are cost-effective, durable, versatile, eco-friendly, quick to construct, and provide excellent security. As our world continues to evolve, and the need for efficient storage solutions grows, it’s likely that the popularity of shipping container storage facilities will continue to rise.

What are your configuration options?

The use of double door shipping containers provides incredible diversity when used in a self-storage facility. Having a set of doors at each end of the containers means that a simple removable divider can be installed, which allows one container to be utilized as two storage spaces. The divider position can also be adjusted to suit the demands of your customers.
