One of the biggest reasons shipping container conversions are so in demand right now is that they are extremely strong and durable. On top of that, they are mobile and can easily be transformed into anything you can think of, such as offices, ablutions, homes etc.

Shipping containers can be customised to your specifications, and hiring a professional will help make your vision a reality.

How Big Are Shipping Containers?

Shipping containers come in five different sizes. The ISO (International Organisation of Standardisation) regulates the standard sizes (internal and exterior dimensions as well as door opening measurements) of GP (general purpose) shipping containers.

GP storage containers range from 10 to 40 ft. Respectively, the metric conversions are as follows:

  • 10 ft – 2.991m
  • 20 ft – 6.058m
  • 40 ft – 12.192m

All these containers are 8 ft (2.438m) wide. The standard height is 8.5 ft (2.591m), while the high cube is 9.5 ft (2.896m).

Internet Cafe

Everything we do is online these days, and often we need fast internet speeds to achieve tasks. As an internet cafe owner, you will invest in fast internet once and get it back in ten folds by charging customers by the minute or hour to use it.

Food Stand

Food is something people will always need and spend money on. We have to eat! Converting a shipping container into a food stand with outside seating in an industrial area is 100% doable and borderline genius. All you need to do is make sure the food you serve is delicious and affordable, and the customers will keep coming.
