Use accessories to modify the Container Shelter to better suit your site specifications and shelter requirements

Container Traders offer accessories to modify the Container Shelter to better suit your site specifications and shelter requirements. You can add a partial end wall to the shelter, or a full end wall for extra coverage.

If you are required to create a higher dimension from the floor height to the roof of the Container Shelter, we can suggest buying additional shipping containers which can be double stacked on the site which will give you 5.2m high from the ground up. This also means, you are able to utilize the additional storage space inside the shipping containers.

Container Shelters FAQs

All you need to know about Shelters

How is a shipping container shelter made?

Shipping container shelters are traditionally constructed using two (or more) traditional shipping containers that are used to anchor a larger, dome-like shelter. The upper shelter is fastened to the roof of the containers and, depending on which size you’ve selected, can be simply bolted on or welded to the top rail securely.

What can I use a shipping container shelter for?

Shipping container shelters can be used for just about anything. Providing impressive protection from the elements, they’re great for storing industrial materials, machinery and vehicles while continuing to provide efficient and easy access. They can also be used residentially and commercially for general storage, events, covered recreational/workspace or vehicle parking areas.

How long does it take to set up a shipping container shelter?

Constructing your Container Shelter is a process we have simplified for our clients to ensure the fastest and easiest installation takes place on your site. Depending on the level of help you have, shipping container shelters can be set up in less than a day.

Is a shipping container shelter permanent?

Shipping container shelters are completely relocatable. Particularly when bolted rather than welded, the shelters can be easily removed and relocated to new locations as desired. Leave them in place for as long as required or relocate when needed – it’s totally up to you.

Can I build the shipping container shelter myself?

Container Traders can arrange your shelter installation through subcontracted companies, however, if you have access to handymen who have a day to spare you can construct the container yourself. Our shelters are supplied with an instruction manual and most people will find it easy enough to erect the shelter without extra subcontractor fees.

Can I get accessories for the shelter?

The good news is that Container Traders offer a range of useful accessories that perfectly complement your container shelter. Whether you want partial or full side walls, access doors, shelving for easy storage, custom paint or electrical fit-out including wiring and light – we’ve got you covered.

How tall is a shipping container shelter?

The brilliant thing about shipping container shelters is their flexibility. If you require extra height all you need to do is stack the anchor containers until you reach your desired dimensions.

What sizes are available for shipping container shelters?

Shipping container shelters come in a variety of size combinations, so whatever you plan to use your shelter for, there’s a perfectly sized option available. If your site is smaller, opt for a 6m or 10m option and if you need a little more room, choose a 10m or 12m variety.
