Picture an amazing year of growing your crops and you have an surprise surplus. Where do you put it?
Maybe you have a bunch of building materials that need a place to stay because you are building something new and fabulous on your property. Where do you store it all in the process to keep it secure?
You’ve invested in some really great equipment for your ranch but it is too big for your shed. How can you properly store it and protect it from the elements?
Do you need something versatile because you need to “roll with it” out at your place because you never know how things will go?
Well, let me tell you about how a shipping container could be the answer to your problems.
When use a shipping container for storage, you can move it where you want or make it a permanent fixture on your land.
It is up to you.
They are so versatile.
You can use the storage where you need it and when you need it.
Shipping containers are made of steel and are reinforced.
They are used for shipping things around the world so that tells you just how sturdy they are.
They have to be able to survive harsh conditions.
You can trust that your belongings, crops, materials or equipment will be safe inside.
Think of some of the horrible weather conditions raging outside and your stuff safe and secure inside those steel walls.
You don’t have to worry.
Some people even use these things for tornado shelters in other parts of the country and that gives you an idea about their durability.
Little to no assembly is required other than preparing the site.
You don’t have to do much because it is already put together.
Think of some of the sheds you might order but have many pieces you have to assemble or hire someone to assemble.
You don’t have to do that with a shipping container.
The hard part is already done for you and done well.
The shipping container can be delivered and you can start using it right away.
You don’t have to wait a long time for it to be delivered.
Just prepare your site for permanent or temporary storage.
The shipping containers are so versatile.
The beauty of a shipping container is that there is only one point of entry.
You just have one place to lock up.
They are made of very durable steel not flimsy materials like some sheds.
Wood buildings are more susceptible to fire.
A building is only as strong as its weakest point.
Think about sheds and buildings with windows.
Windows are significant weak points.
You don’t have that with a shipping container.
There are no worries about someone breaking out a window.
There are no flimsy walls.
The whole thing is made from very dense materials.
All you need is a lock and it is secure.
Shipping containers are great for storing large building supplies as well as your big equipment. Their size offers you a lot of space to store something. They can hold a lot of stuff in that kind of square footage. Also, you could use multiple shipping containers to better sort your stuff. Separate shipping containers could keep stuff organized and clean. Everything could be in its own space. They are a very affordable option so don’t limit yourself to just one.
The placement can create even more uses.
Think of all the creative ways you could place a shipping container or two.
You could make a breezeway by placing near a building.
Think about putting 2 together and putting a roof over the top.
You could create a very quick and useful barn.
The 2 storage containers on the sides could offer very secure storage while giving you a nice little area that is protected from the weather under the roof.
If you have a ranch, farm or vineyard, shipping containers as storage units just make sense.
They are affordable, strong, secure and simplify things for you.
