Shipping Containers Make Ideal Retail Units

Tuesday, 21st July 2009
Shipping containers are strong, secure, easily converted and above all transportable. Remove one or both sides and infill with glass panels and you have the ideal shop front. Folding canopies can be fitted as well as ramps. The interior of the container can be insulated and then lined with plywood, melamine or plasterboard and painted or have wall paper hung. The shipping container is easily connected to power via mains electricity, some clients have gone so far as to fit solar panels and even wind turbines for self sufficient power. Once connected the possibilities are endless, floodlights, alarms, heating, plug sockets, lighting can all be fitted here. A water connection is also possible with a partitioned area providing sinks, taps, water heaters, showers and w/cís. These mobile retail units can be taken wherever your client base requires. You will often see containers being used as shops or walk in display units at festivals, exhibitions and many open air events. Should the client then need to take the container to the next event it is simply a case of disconnecting the mains plug and water and closing the doors and shutters. The container is then ready to be picked up by a crane mounted transport company and driven to the next site to be dropped off.
