Get Creative With Your Custom Shipping Container

Do you have great ideas but you’re feeling stuck and looking for a place to create something? Whether you’re taking up welding and don’t want to pay for rent in a shop, or you’re looking to get that woodworking dust out of the garage, look no further than a custom container from GOContainers!

A shipping container workshop is a great solution for the weekend handyman and the aspiring entrepreneur alike. Without having to worry about building an entire structure or finding a workspace to rent, you’ll save time, money and headaches, and be able to spend more time focusing on your passion. Here’s just one example of a custom container workshop.

Shipping container workshops are:

  • Versatile – the perfect platform for many uses, no matter how dirty the job or how exacting the details, containers can be built to serve almost any purpose.
  • Affordable – Nobody sells better containers for a better price, and you won’t pay anything until you see your shipping container to verify its condition and quality.
  • Practical  – By using a pre-fabricated platform for your project, you can rest assured that the frame is structurally sound and it will be easy to seal and keep your valuable tools and projects dry, safe, and secure.
  • Environmentally Sound – By repurposing a used shipping container, you’re keeping more metal out of the waste stream and putting it to good use–for your hard work!

If you’re ready to take the next step to get your business off the ground or take your hobby to the next level, wait no longer and give GOContainers a call today!

Use a Shipping Container Workshop for a Retirement Business

Baby boomers have been retiring in droves, but many have found they miss working. Some have become volunteers, and they cite the daily interaction with others as a reason to continue. According to The Street, many have chosen to get back into the world of business. Some are exploring a life-long hobby as a business, and others are opening businesses in new fields. For those who want to create their own goods, a shipping container workshop is just what they need.

Use a Shipping Container Workshop for a Retirement Business

Downsizing in Retirement

When retirement strikes, people often sell their large home for a smaller, more compact space. They want to get away from maintaining the house and a big yard and this smaller space give them more time for their hobbies. Turning a hobby into a business requires more area than many small retirement homes provide, and adding a shipping container workshop to the backyard is a way to create more space without expanding the home.

A Defined Area

Hobbies and small businesses require concentration for success, and having an area specifically designed for them are best. Moving out of the house and into a workshop provides a designated area for work, and it keeps unnecessary noise from disturbing work. When a person is ready to welcome the public, inviting them to the shop rather than their home is a good option. This gives the retiree a place to do public business from home while maintaining their privacy.

Add Space without Remodeling

When it comes to adding space, remodeling a home is a major undertaking, and many retirees would prefer not to take on that type of job. Choosing a container instead of adding a shop to the house is a non-invasive way to add space without tearing out walls and adding doors or rooms.

Many retirees are returning to the workplace because they enjoy the challenges, and creating their own space is often important. If you are a retiree who needs a good place to work, please contact us to inquire about our shipping container options.

A Shipping Container Workshop Gives You the Elbow Room to Create!

If you work with wood, there is the sawdust to contend with. Mechanical parts are oily and plumbing parts can be just plain nasty!

A container workshop near your home or in the backyard is convenient and easy to accomplish. A shipping container can be moved into a remarkably small parcel of land yet, with the doors open wide, you never feel confined. Close those doors and put your lock in place and there are not going to be many burglars that will invest the time and energy it would take to break into a shipping container. There would be just too much work and risk. Burglars generally want to get in and out quick.
