Buying Secondhand Sea and Cargo Conex Containers Reporposed

by Nick Fraiser on Apr 16, 2018

A vast majority of people call them freight containers, sea cans, storage containers or bunker boxes but we call them conex boxes. Did you know that a used conex box is still very useful? For starters, a vast majority of people have started to convert them into tiny eco-friendly homes. Why?

They are cost effective because you only require a capital of $25,000 to $35,000 to construct a two-bedroom self-sustaining home. Secondly, they are weatherproof. They are constructed out of 16 gauge steel which is corrosion resistant, wind resistant and water resistant. Lastly, they help to create an eco-friendly set up which can be upgraded quite easily finally increasing the size of your home.

Today, a conex box has been identified as the ideal storage box for businesses. Let’s face it. Running a business is not easy. Whether it’s an office, retail store, hotel or restaurant, the number of documents, as well as office stuff, can increase quickly. This is true especially if you keep upgrading your office or business to fit with modern standards.

Since the seasonal stuff and documents will eat up your office space, it will affect your workers' productivity. Thanks to conex boxes, you can now declutter and ensure that your office or business is well organized.

There are online retailers of conex boxes that deliver new and used containers. Before you get involved in repurposing, do your research

Here are uses of Conex Box storage to help reduce clutter. 

For home online business

Today, it is possible to make a living right from your home. Thanks to the internet which has equalized the playing field, stay at home dads and moms can use their acquired skills to sell a wide variety of products.

It is now easier to set up an e-commerce store unlike in the past when it was costly. Thanks to platforms like Etsy, Shopify, and Amazon, you can now set up your online store within minutes. From there onwards, simply advertise your products, receive payment, deliver and track your sales.

The question remains – how do you handle your ballooning stock? Well, the answer lies with a conex box. As a portable storage solution, you can add shelves, lights, paint, decals and even outlets. A vast majority of online home business people choose either 10’ or 20’ while large retailers opt for 40’ models.

In Construction companies

Contractors around the world are tasked with the responsibility of building, remodeling or repairing a home. To ensure efficiency, contractors must have access to their tools and building supplies. Even though contractors have invested in mobile trucks which are able to carry their tools and equipment, to and from the site, having a portable storage at the site can simplify matters. In addition, it helps to declutter the site and ensure the proper organization of building supplies and construction tools.

Installing a conex box at the work site provides the contractor with ample storage for different needs such as: 

  • Storing building supplies
  • Storing construction equipment and tools
  • Storing building materials
  • Act as a meeting space
  • Act as a field office

After the house or commercial building is fully constructed, the conex box can be moved to another work site and still serve the same function. As a result, the contractor will be able to keep track of the equipment and building materials.

In Schools

It is important to know that portable storage solutions like conex boxes are an excellent choice for schools that require secure and accessible storage. Using this portable storage solution enables the school administration to organize their stuff (declutter) and retrieve them only when needed.

As a dry storage solution, it’s perfect for: 

  • Storing books
  • Sports equipment
  • Garden equipment
  • Records and documents
  • Yard maintenance equipment
  • School furniture
  • Healthcare equipment

Since conex boxes are built with weatherproof steel, it can withstand extreme weather such as 100 mph winds especially if it’s anchored to the ground. Thanks to the versatility of the conex box, the school administration can decide to move it and install it anywhere on the school property when need arises.

To ensure the proper storage of the documents and records, the container can be fitted with old office record storage solutions which are fireproof.

For homeowners

When you first bought your home, everything was brand new – from the floors and walls to windows and décor. Over the years, you have continued to add more stuff such as furniture, electronics, kitchenware and other decorative pieces. Let’s face it. There comes a time when you need to upgrade a certain room in your home such as the kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, basement or bathroom.

If you choose to remodel or perform an entire makeover of your home, you need a portable storage solution to store your stuff temporarily. Conex boxes can save you the hassle of moving your stuff to an offsite storage facility located miles away. By using portable storage solutions, you can keep a close eye on your stuff.

Once the remodeling or makeover is over, the conex box can maintain its status as a portable storage box, as a garden shed and for storing repair materials.
