DropBox Inc. is an ISO shipping container modification company that provides standard containerized products and custom shipping container modifications for use at jobsites, plants and man camps worldwide. Standard products include blast-resistant modules, sanitation stations, shower trailers, mobile offices, mobile tool cribs, decontamination stations, chemical storage units, high-security storage units, laundry units and welding stations. DropBox has a long history of serving the industrial, commercial, and military markets with the best solutions to help make projects run smoothly, safely and securely.

The products built by DropBox Inc.are made from standard ISO shipping containers, constructed from 16 gauge COR-TEN weathering steel that are built to hold 67,000 pounds, and can be stacked up to nine containers high. Typically built overseas, these shipping containers are loaded full of TVs, Blu-Ray players, or whatever else is being shipped to the US. After being unloaded of their goods, the containers are usually stacked in a port or a lot and left unused. But here at DropBox Inc. we take those single-use containers and build a wide range of products from them.  

While some businesses are built on the notion of thinking outside the box, DropBox Inc. focuses our business on thinking inside the box; that is, taking what others see as a single-use container and reconfiguring it and giving it multiple, pragmatic purposes for contractors around the world. We repurpose these containers by engineering, designing, and modifying them to act as ground-level offices, blast-resistant modules, portable self-contained restrooms, chemical storage facilities, and much more.

5 Tools Every Shipping Container Modification Company Should Be Using

DropBox Inc. has made great strides in both growing and improving upon its business since its inception in the early 2000s. With a focus on meeting customers’ needs and delivering thought-out, custom portable solutions, we have grown both our shipping container modification processes and our customer base. Through years of experience in building portable solutions for customers in the industrial and commercial construction industry, DropBox Inc. has come to understand that there are a few things that a company in the shipping container modification industry just can't do without. In this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog we will take a look at 5 Tools Every Company in the Shipping Container Modification Industry Should Be Using. 

1) Design and Engineering Capabilities. Regardless of your skills in welding and carpentry, without the right design and engineering people your shipping container modifications will never reach their full capabilities. Many states require modular structures like shipping container modifications be built to meet certain building codes. Without proper engineering and design capabilities, your portable solutions would not pass inspection and could potentially hinder your sales potential. Working with the customers that we have, we've also learned that meeting modular building codes isn’t the only design and engineering concern you'll have... Given the need to enclose highly technical equipment like battery/inverter systems, water filtration systems, and decontamination devices, and the need for them to function properly in their shipping container modifications, it's imperative that the design and engineering concerns are met with proper capabilities.

2)  A Supply of High Quality, One-Trip Containers. Depending on the application for your shipping container modification, it might not be of the utmost importance to start with a "one-trip" container. For most customers though, we do find that a new one-trip container is the only way to go. In general, finding shipping containers is relatively easy. A quick search on Google or EBay and you can find shipping containers for sale, but those shipping containers aren't always in the best shape. Some used containers may be really old and have a lot of damage, rust, holes, and rotting floors. When DropBox Inc. builds shipping container modifications, we build them from new, one-trip containers. With these containers the structural integrity and dependability of your initial building component is never in question.

3) Certified and Licensed Craftsmen. Any old yahoo with a welding torch and a tape measure thinks they can build a shipping container into a storm shelter or an end-of-times doomsday cabin, but regrettably that is just not the case. Professional, certified, and licensed craftsmen can mean the difference between a satisfied customer and a lost sale. Like in any business it is important to employ individuals that can build quality products and keep customers coming back time and time again for their shipping container modifications.  

4) Premium Vendors and High Quality Components. With some companies, not enough emphasis is placed on procuring the best building materials for shipping container modifications. Considering only the cost of things, corners sometimes get cut to save money, and the end product ends up being (inevitably) subpar. Finding the right vendors, vendors who can deliver high quality components in a timely fashion, can make all the difference with regards to building a high quality shipping container modification. 

5) Logistics: Product Handling and Delivery. Engineering, designing, and building the best portable solution for customers is paramount, but being able to move these products is a job in and of itself. Shipping containers and shipping container modifications are not cartons of eggs and gallons of milk, they are large and heavy. Shipping containers are typically 8' 6" tall, 8' wide, and usually 20' - 40' long. They require either a large forklift, overhead crane, or roll-off trailer to move around and deliver to customers. The right logistics for product handling and delivering capabilities can be one of the best tools a shipping container modification company can have at its disposal. 

We hope that this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog has been informative. For more information on DropBox Inc. and all of our shipping container modification capabilities CONTACT US HERE or call us toll free at 888.388.7768.

DropBox Inc. Shipping Container Modifications Made Easy

Posted on Thu, Apr 14, 2016 @ 13:04 PM

With DropBox Inc., shipping container modifications are easy, affordable, and turn-key.

Taking customers’ site-specific needs into consideration, we modify shipping containers into everything from ground-level offices, break rooms, locker rooms, shower facilities, and self-contained running water restrooms to portable battery/inverter storage systems, water filtration housing units, blast-resistant modules, and much more. Although these portable jobsite solutions may sometimes look like shipping containers with corner castings, corrugated walls, and double doors on one end, they are built from the ground up to meet our customers’ specifications.

Think Inside the Box!

Our motto here at DropBox Inc. is “Think Inside the Box.” What we can build inside of these shipping containers to provide the right jobsite solution for our customers is what sets us apart from the competition.

“We think inside the box, knowing all along that the sky is the limit when it comes to shipping container modifications and what what we have been able to do with them,” says Robert Slagel, President of DropBox Inc. "In recent years, we’ve been able to modify containers for a much wider variety of uses – including battery storage systems that were on location and in use at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Mount Sochi, Russia, and perimeter security solutions that were used for secure entrance and egress units at the construction site of the new Freedom Tower in New York City, New York," he added.

“They’re turn-key and easily delivered, installed, and portable from one job to the next,” Slagel said of the growing popularity of shipping containers being modified for purposes other than storage and international shipping.

The price for containers and container modificationsvaries. A new "one-trip" container may cost from $4,500 to $6,000, depending on its size and the characteristics needed for certain modifications. DropBox Inc. can, however, "stick-build" containers to meet any spatial demands. "The largest unit we've built to-date was for a nuclear facility in Arizona. It’s a security portal which was built from 15 shipping containers pulled together and installed with everything security-oriented you can imagine. From x-ray to bomb detection to ballistics-rated glass in the office area – it has it all," Slagel said.

At DropBox Inc. we can sell it all – everything from simple used shipping containers for $3000, up to and beyond multi-box shipping container modifications in the millions of dollars.

At the end of the day, DropBox Inc. has built a reputation by “thinking inside the box” and building custom shipping container modifications to meet our customers’ needs.
