Container Options and Accessories

Unlock the Full Potential of Your Shipping Container: Our Top Container Options and Accessories

Containers are an excellent solution for storing and transporting goods and equipment. They are available in various sizes and configurations to meet the needs of different businesses and individuals. In addition to the standard features, containers can be customized with a range of options and accessories to improve their functionality and usability.  Check out these options we carry. 

Heavy Duty Lock Boxes

One of our most common container options is a lockbox. A lockbox is a metal cover that fits over the padlock on the container’s door. It provides an extra layer of security by preventing unauthorized access to the padlock. Lockboxes are especially useful for high-security applications such as storing expensive equipment or sensitive documents.

High-security padlocks

Our Jimmy Proof Heavy-Duty Padlock is a type of padlock that is designed to provide high-level security against forced entry and tampering. It is commonly used in applications where maximum security is required, such as securing gates, doors, and storage containers.

Twist Locks

Our twist locks are made of heat treated galvanized steel and are used to secure shipping containers to transportation vehicles or to stack them securely on top of each other. They are designed to prevent your container from shifting or falling during transport, which could cause damage to your container and its contents, as well as pose a safety risk. Twist locks consist of two parts: the twist lock base and the twist lock cone (see below).

Stacking Cones

Container stacking cones are an important accessory when stacking shipping containers as they need to be properly aligned and secured to prevent them from shifting or toppling over. Our stacking cones are made of steel and come in various sizes to fit different container types and sizes. They are placed on the corner castings of the bottom container and act as a guide for the corner castings of the container above it. This ensures that the containers are properly aligned and prevents them from sliding or shifting out of position.

Security bars and grills

Our team can install security bars and grills  over your container’s windows and vents, to prevent unauthorized access and to protect your contents from theft or vandalism.   We can also paint them to match the colour of your container to provide a cohesive professional look.

Windows and Doors

Adding windows and doors are frequently requested options to enhance storage containers can provide you with additional natural light and ventilation. There are several types of windows and doors to choose from, including sliding doors, roll-up doors, and man doors. These enhancements can also make it easier to access and organize the contents of the container.

For customers who need to power electrical equipment or lighting within their storage container, electricity upgrades are a popular option. This can include adding electrical outlets, light fixtures, and even heating elements. With these enhancements, customers can have the convenience of electricity in their storage container without the need for an external power source.

Hvac and AC

For customers who need to store temperature-sensitive items, HVAC and air conditioning upgrades are essential. These enhancements can help regulate the temperature and humidity levels within the container, ensuring that the contents remain in optimal condition. This is particularly important for items such as electronics, artwork, and pharmaceuticals.

Custom Painting and Branding

For businesses, custom paint and branding can be a useful modification to help promote their brand and increase visibility. This can include adding a logo or company name to the container, or painting the container in the company’s signature colors.

Shelving and Racking

Adding shelving and racking to the container can help maximize the available space and make it easier to organize items. This is particularly useful for businesses storing multiple items or for homeowners who want to create a more organized storage space.

Security Enhancements

Security enhancements are another common modification for portable storage containers. This can include adding heavy-duty locks or security bars to the doors, or installing a security system with alarms and cameras. For more information, click on the security tab above.
