Four Different Uses for Your Storage Container

Here at Flintham Cabins, we specialise in providing the highest quality steel storage containers, and while their use might seem pretty self-explanatory, there is a world of different and unique things that can be done with a storage container.

Usually, we would use these kinds of storage containers from moving something from point A to point B, but in this creative and innovative modern world, we constantly finding new ways in which storage containers can not only do their jobs, but also make your life or business easier and more organized.

We understand that while you can get very creative with storage containers, it can be hard to imagine what can be done with them. Well, for a hit of inspiration, we bring you 4 alternate ways you can use your storage container.

Temporary Storage for the Home

This is perhaps the most common alternate use for a storage container as it meets more of the design plan of a container (in that you’re using it for storage). You’ll often find that many people end up spending quite a lot of cash on something like a shed, which does do the job of storage, but ultimately takes up a big chunk of your garden. Instead, you could rent yourself a storage container for a period of time and use it for a multitude of reasons, such as:

  • Cleaning out your garage
  • De-cluttering the home
  • Room renovations
  • Prepping the home for the real estate market
  • Home damage and emergency storage

Mobile Field Office

If you find yourself tasked with doing a big job in the field, there might be no better way to keep tabs on everything than setting up a mobile field office, and it just so happens a storage container will provide just the right amount of room. These storage containers offer plenty of space required for a desk, and necessary office equipment – as well some models having translucent ceilings, which means you’ll have access to plenty of fresh, natural light.

If you still need some more storage space in your container, Mobile Shelving Direct specialise in units that can help with this. These kind of units help because they’re specifically designed for places with limited space, so they’re perfect if you were going to set up an office in one of these containers!

A Piece of Art

If you’re looking for a completely different way to use your storage container, you could open your mind and let your creative juices flow by turning it into a work of art. There have been many examples of people using containers for their work; In Rotterdam, a creative team disassembled, folded and twisted various pieces of a number of containers and turned it into a sculpture. We also have a second example from Japan, where the containers were stacked, creating an archway of sorts. It’s meaning? No idea, we’re storage container providers, not art critics.

A Children’s Centre

This is a more obscure example of how you can use your container, you might not be even thinking of opening a children’s centre, but the option is now there if you do want to do it. In Melbourne, Australia there is a unique play-centre made from four large containers, which have been designed to create an activity centre made entirely of recycled and environmentally friendly materials.

We also have a fine example in our native shores; The Fawood Children’s centre in London has a brightly coloured, modern metal mesh exterior that encapsulates a bunch of stacked, recycled storage containers. Three groups of three-story containers are joined together by walkways, projecting balconies and staircases.

So, as you can see, there are plenty of alternative uses for your storage container, and these aren’t the only things you can use them for. There are nearly limitless options that are available to you and your storage container so open your mind and see beyond the four walls of steel.
