What are Double Door Shipping Containers used/ good for?

There are a variety of uses for high cube shipping containers in commercial industries or for commercial shipping.

  • Temporary Office Space – Double Door Shipping Containers can be used as temporary office space for long-term projects or during office expansions.  Adding a wall in the middle can turn the container into two separate workspaces, each with their own entrances.
  • Portable Living Space – Given that Container Traders offers a variety of customisations and modifications, many customers purchase general purpose shipping containers as an alternative to traditional living options, and repurpose them into exquisitely functioning homes.
  • Storage of Construction Material and Equipment –  The easy access allows quick access to contents of the container.  Having two doors reduces any congestion that may occur when there are multiple, varied jobs happening at once.  The double doors can increase efficiency on the job.
  • Easily Accessible Long-term Storage
  • Partitioned Space – If you need further organisation, adding a wall or partition in the middle can help to divide up the space.  Having access on both sides means that you can divide up contents based on their function or uses, making it easier to find what you are looking for.
