It is getting close to that time of year again!  Time to think about HUNTING!  And of course, that begs the question – where are you going to hunt this year?  Do you need to update where you will base your week (or 2 or 3) of hunting from?  Check out these previous posts we have on hunting container cabins.

We can modify your container into a cabin and we have kits if you prefer to do it yourself.  On or off the grid, hunting container cabins are an easy way to have a dry spot in the woods.

It is spring time and you are gearing up for a busy summer.  Let containers make all those projects go smoothly and on time.  Containers are great on jobsites for secure storage and as a work area in bad weather.

Containers are made from cor-ten steel, which means it takes them longer to rust than regular steel.  It also makes them very secure.  Add a lockbox on the door and any potential thief would need welding tools to get at your tools.

Since containers are mobile, you can move them from jobsite to jobsite.  Keeping your tools onsite keeps your guys to your schedule.  Unlike keeping tools in a truck and depending on that truck being to the jobsite on time every day, your tools and supplies are right where you left them the night before.

You can work out of the container when the weather doesn’t cooperate.  If you plan on working in the container often, you can even modify it with venting, electricity, insulation, windows and/or additional doors to make the container be your perfect workshop.  Modification kits make it easy for you to do the modifications exactly the way you want.

Container toolboxes are a great way to provide secure storage and work space on your jobsites.

If you were planning out your perfect container toolbox, what would you include?  Venting? Lights? Secure shelving or drawers?

The snow is melting, the ground is greening up, and you’re raring to get going on your construction projects, even after adjusting for tougher economic realities. You need to keep a lid on costs and you want to be smart about storing your tools and materials. You may have noticed that steel storage containers are being used more and more on construction sites—not just by the general contractors, but by subs as well.  That’s because they make great toolboxes, and here’s why: 1.  Reliable Security. Containers are far and away the most secure way to store tools and materials on a job site. Constructed of heavy-duty steel, they’re indestructible. Add a lockbox and only a plasma cutter could have a chance (not a common tool for the common thief).

2.  Storage Where You Need It. You can have your materials delivered directly to the job site, saving you money and hauling headaches over the long run. Everything will be kept safe and dry from Day 1 to the end of construction.

3.  Time Savings. Your workers won’t have to go back and forth from your location with company trucks or wait for co-workers to show up with the tool that got put in another guy’s truck.  Everything they need will be right on site and ready to go every morning, rain or shine.

4.  Added Work Space. On bad-weather days, you and your team can use the container as a dry workshop right on site.

5.  Mobility. When the job is done, you can move the container to your next job site … with the tools right in it. (For this, we recommend the 20’ container, easily movable by tow trucks).

Your tools will be safe, secure, and right where you need them. The cost savings will add up. And as a bonus you can paint your container with your logo and company colors—an instant on-site billboard, great for your business and a productivity booster for your team.
