DropBox Inc. has been building portable turn-key containerized units like restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, battery/inverter storage, hazardous chemical storage, modular laboratories, and even multi-box units since the early 2000s. Working with construction project personnel and construction management companies, DropBox Inc. has helped to visualize and manifest products from those visions. Projects large and small have been designed, engineered, and built by the DropBox Inc. shipping container modification team. 

Deliverable from jobsite to jobsite, our shipping container modifications can be provided for rent or for sale all around the world. Our unique containerized solutions allow our units to be dropped on site and put to use with very little site prep needed. In most cases a connection to power is all that is needed. 

While DropBox Inc. does offer a standard product line for restrooms, offices, chemical storage, blast resistant modules (and more) we can also build custom units to meet your site-specific needs.

Do you have an idea about a shipping container modification project? If so we're excited to hear about it!

3 Reasons People Build Things Out of Shipping Containers

3 Reasons People Build Things Out of Shipping Containers

DropBox Inc. is proud to offer a wide variety of containerized, portable turn-key products for industrial and commercial construction customers. Over the years we have built many different types of shipping container modifications for power plants, refineries, nuclear facilities, commercial construction, and infrastructure projects in the U.S. and abroad. We here at DropBox Inc. know that there are lots of reasons why people build things out of shipping containers. In this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog we are going to look at the top 3 reasons our customers report for wanting to build with ISO shipping containers. 

1) Longevity: Shipping containers are the perfect building block.

First and foremost, shipping containers themselves are manufactured to last 50-60 years and are constructed from steel tubing, corrugated 16-gauge steel panels, and marine grade plywood. They are built to hold 67,000 lbs. of cargo and be stacked 10-high. Because of this construction they are the perfect building block and can be used for a wide range of solutions that will also last a very long time. The engineering and design that goes into the box itself – and into the modification of the box – make it an excellent building block for temporary structures as well as permanent installations.

2) Portability: Shipping container modifications can be moved easily from one location to the next.

Shipping containers, as the name suggests, are made for shipping. With shipping container modifications the end product is still engineered to be easily transported from one location to the next. The boxes themselves are built to meet international standardized shipping dimensions and can be loaded on trains, trailers, and boats for transportation as needed. 

3) Turn-Key Installation: With shipping containers very little work has to be done onsite. 

When you get a shipping container modification from DropBox Inc. you get a turn-key product that is easy to put to use. Many of our customers note that the only thing they had to do once a DropBox Inc. shipping container modification was delivered was to hook it up to power. While not all shipping container modifications are the same, it can often be just as simple as that... As long as you have a level surface to sit our shipping container modifications on, hours of man-power and a lot of money can be saved in comparison to stick building a structure. 

At DropBox Inc. our designers, engineers, and expert team of shipping container modifiers build a shipping container into virtually anything – for whatever reason you might have. Our shipping container modifications have been used in every climate zone on Earth. So, if you need additional office space, on-site restrooms or showers, or work stations, the DropBox Inc. team can help. Our highly skilled team of engineers can even "build up" by securely stacking multiple containers into a multi-story building; we can manufacture structures with both internal and external stairs. Long-term or short-term, DropBox Inc. can build temporary and permanent buildings.

Large or small, DropBox Inc. can supply the long-lasting, portable, turn-key solution you need.

What is Shipping Container Modification? 

Posted on Tue, Jan 09, 2018 @ 15:01 PM

In this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog we will answer the question "What is Shipping Container Modification?"

Let's design & engineer this puppy!

First and foremost, shipping container modification begins with engineering and designing the end product to be built. Your standard ISO shipping container is built to hold 67,000 lbs. and be stacked ten containers high. They are manufactured to last 50-60 years and are constructed from steel tubing, corrugated 16-gauge steel panels, and marine grade plywood. While the container itself is quite sturdy, the structural integrity of the box is hindered once holes are cut into it. Therefore, it is important to engineer the end product in order to make sure the proper support structures are put in place so that the shipping container modification is safe for its intended use. 

By first engineering and designing the product to its completion you can rest assured that the shipping container modification will be functional and safe regardless of the environment and surroundings where it is put to use. Much like in the building of permanent stick-built structures, form follows function. 

Break out your welder!

Once a shipping container modification has been designed and engineered through structural, electrical, and any other required engineering discipline, you can begin work on actually modifying the box. The next step in the process is cutting out the needed holes in the box for doors, windows, or openings where one or more boxes can be pulled together to create multi-box shipping container modifications. Included in this step is the installation of additional support structures such as steel tubing, as determined in the engineering process, to keep the end product structurally sound.

Carpentry, electrical, & plumbing!

After the welders are finished and the box is once again structurally sound it's time to do some carpentry, electrical, and any plumbing required. Studs in shipping container modifications may be wood or aluminum, and any electrical or plumbing needed will be based on the intended function of the shipping container modification.

Insulation!

When the carpentry, electrical, and plumbing have all been roughed in, insulation can then be brought in to make sure the shipping container modification can be climate-controlled to provide a comfortable work environment regardless of where it is placed. Insulation can be fiberglass, mineral wool, or spray foam insulation.

We're almost finished!

Now that the engineering, design, welding, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and insulation have all been installed it's time to complete the finishing touches – like adding a wall/ceiling treatment, painting the exterior, and adding lights, outlets, and fixtures as-needed per the design. 

Load up the end product and ship it out!

Once complete, your shipping container modification is ready to be delivered to its end customer and location via either a roll-off trailer or flatbed. 

To sum it all up in a neat little answer to "What is shipping container modification?"

Shipping container modification is the engineering, designing, and modifying of an ISO shipping container to provide the desired functionality of the end product. While not all are needed in every shipping container modification, it is important to rely on all engineering disciplines and trades to create the shipping container you will need.
