Refurbished Containers: The New Trend

refurbished containers

Overview:

In general containers are built to last the test of time. However, when used container come out of international shipping service, they are typically between 10-15 years old. As expected, the containers have dents, dings, surface rust and can use a little TLC. Refurbishing or reconditioning a container can add years to the life of a container. It can also give a used container a substantial aesthetic upgrade from a typical watertight unit which typically comes labeled by the shipping line.

What makes a Used Container, Refurbished?

Refurbishing a container simply means taking a used container and sprucing it up! We take a used container with dents and scratches from prior use and apply a fresh coat of paint to the exterior. The exterior is prepped, primed (if necessary) and then the coat of paint is applied. We typically use marine grade industrial enamel from Sherwin Williams™. If necessary we will make minor repairs to the container as well (patching holes or replacing floor board). A Refurbished Container is guaranteed to last and is completely durable for all types of use. Although still considered an ISO shipping container once refurbished it is now considered a modified storage container.

The Advantages of Refurbished Containers:

More Economical

The economical value of Refurbished Containers is most likely a more logical solution than deciding to go with a completely new container. However, you should first decide what container would suit your needs better depending on how you plan to utilize the container. We can help you through this process.

More Affordable

Considering these containers have been used, they would naturally be sold at a cheaper price already. The cost of refurbishing a used container could be as little as $575 (plus the cost of the container). It would also depend on the size of the container and whether you chose a lighter pigmented paint color. Typically white or tan would require a base primer and would be a bit more expensive. However, if you chose a darker paint color (gray, green, blue, etc.) the container would not need a base primer. Even after the refurbishment, the cost would still be cheaper than a new container altogether. This is what makes the method of Refurbishing Containers a more affordable one.

“RRR” – Reducing, Reusing and Recycling

Refurbished Containers are obviously reused containers. The refurbishment process essentially recycles a shipping container. Repurposing a used container increases the life of the storage container, saving the need to produce a new container.

Still Guaranteed to Last

Our containers are built to last through the toughest conditions, including heavy seas and extreme weather. Though these used containers may have already been through it all, it doesn’t mean they can’t go through it again and again. Our Refurbished Containers are still durable enough to withstand these harsh settings.

    Hello Lee,

    Thanks for the question. Over the last decade it as become more and more popular to utilize shipping containers as opposed to traditional building methods. A 20′ container can definitely be refurbished and converted into a small restaurant. My recommendation is to contact your local zoning office first (if you have not already done so). Before you go through the process of figuring out the costs associated with the structure, you should determine if a containerized structure can be permitted in your area. Hopefully your area allows such structures. If they do, the next step would be to consult with an architect or engineer to make sure the container is structurally sound. If it is, from there it’s just a matter of converting the unit to meet your requirements. I hope this information is helpful. Ray
