Shipping Container Modification Prices

If you want to know how much a shipping container modification costs it's important to first understand that you're going to have a lot of things to consider. There is a wide range of important factors to take into consideration and it's often difficult to determine on your own. Unless you are working with a proven, qualified company that has been in the shipping container modification business for years, an exact figure is going to be difficult to pinpoint.

In order to determine shipping container modification prices within even the slimmest of margins, a team of engineers and design experts will need to be contacted. Here at DropBox Inc. we have that team at your disposal. If you can think it we can build it, because at DropBox Inc. we aren't just thinking outside the box, we're Re-Inventing the Box.

Much like when are going to buy a car, a shipping container modification is very similar in that you really do "pay for what you get.” A quick search on the web will lead you to a number of companies that are selling new and used shipping containers for a wide range of prices. But buying the shipping container itself is only one piece of the puzzle. Prices listed on these sites often do not include engineering, design, site prep, or any modifications you'd like to have done.

When it comes to the actual modification of the shipping container, key questions to consider can include but are not limited to: Will the product need to be engineered? Meet build codes? What about insulation, lighting, electrical requirements, doors, windows, flooring, wall treatments, exterior paint, coatings, or facades?

All of these things affect the cost of a shipping container modification, and each item has its own set of questions when considering cost. For example, you need doors, but what kind of doors? Wood? Steel? How about windows?

When it comes right down to it, pricing a shipping container modification depends on a lot of variables. Exactly what the customer wants and where it's going are major factors to consider.

We hope this information is helpful in your decision to purchase a shipping container modification, and if you have an idea you'd like pricing for we encourage you to CONTACT US HERE or call us toll-free at 740.532.7822.

DropBox Inc. Your Shipping Container Modification Experts

ISO shipping containers such as those modified by DropBox Inc. are constructed from COR-TEN (or weathering) steel for its durability and longevity. Designed to weather the passage overseas, the shipping containers are renowned for their strength, portability, and long life. In addition to the natural strength of the steel being used to construct the containers, the steel is formed into corrugated walls. These corrugated sides help add additional strength and helps to make the containers strong enough to be stacked up to 10 high. All of these features make shipping containers the perfect building block for a wide range of portable jobsite solutions. 

The re-use of shipping containers as portable jobsite solutions makes perfect sense for companies like DropBox Inc. and for our customers. All around the world shipping containers are used for imports and exports. Due primarily to the growing U.S. trade deficit with shipping container producing countries like China, roughly 7 million shipping containers come into the U.S. every year while only about 2.5 million are shipped back out.

When looking for shipping container modifications and a shipping container modification company it is important to do your research to make sure you are working with a company that is experienced in shipping container modifications and the engineering and design process. At DropBox Inc. we are the most experienced shipping container modification company in the United States, and we take your shipping container modification projects to the next level. The products we provide are turn-key, portable, and ready to deliver for use within a short amount time upon arrival to your location.

Portable Solutions Group Major Award Winner for Q1 2019

At Portable Solutions Group (PSG), parent company to DropBox inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc., we work with customers around the world to build portable, turn-key solutions for a wide range of applications. From customizable guard offices with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, access control, and climate-controlled guard offices to restrooms, showers, and much more, we take every step needed to provide functionality, deliverability, and the optimization of a restricted footprint and make things happen. 

In recognition of all the hard work that we do, PSG has been awarding a quarterly “Major Award” similar to that received by "The Old Man" (Ralphie's dad) in 1983's A Christmas Story. The award is given to employees who go the extra mile to get the job done. 

Being open to the imagination of our customers’ needs with consideration to the products we build is a lot of work and requires the attention of a lot of behind-the-scenes folks. While our salespeople, engineers, and designers lead the charge out front, a large group of office staff keeps things rolling and makes sure the ship keeps sailing on down the river.

With those hardworking people in mind, it is with great pleasure that we have awarded the 2019 Q1 Major Award to Donna Vanover-McGlothin. Donna began her career with PSG in 2017 as our Accounts Receivable and Payroll Administrator. 

Since coming aboard Donna has worked very hard to help the companies with account balances and accounts receivable and has maintained payroll for our more than 100 employees.

We'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Donna for all of her success and hard work. Way to go, Donna! Congratulations!

In the process of living out our quality policy we are dedicated to meeting and exceeding the expectations of our customers statutory and regulatory requirements, continuously improving our processes to provide increasing value to all stakeholders, and cultivating a positive, satisfying work environment. 

PSG management defines the sequence and interaction of processes required to meet customer satisfaction, along with metrics to determine the system’s effectiveness. The system is implemented through quotes, purchase orders, and contracts including drawings, workmanship standards, work instructions, checklists, and training. Upper management develops goals and objectives annually, which are translated into actionable items for each team member through the S.M.A.R.T. goal process. Managements review of the system is conducted at least annually to compare results against goals and objectives and foster continuous improvement.

Our sales and design team partner with our customers to select a standard product, modify a standard product, or develop a new product design. From start to finish the design is jointly created and developed with our customers via drawings and quotes for the work, to build and deliver the product specifically to meet their needs. When required, drawings are reviewed and approved for manufacturing by a third party or applicable state authority having jurisdiction to determine code compliance with modular building codes. Quality and engineering processes performed by PSG companies ensure the design complies with applicable codes.

The vast majority of purchased materials are readily available, standard commercial products. Their design is largely defined by industry standards, building codes, and independent certification bodies. Design requirements for custom purchased materials are conveyed to the supplier by purchase orders and/or drawings. Relationships are cultivated with vendors based on their ability to provide the requisite level of service at a price that reflects delivered value. Priority is given to local vendors.

At PSG, manufacturing personnel are qualified via third party certification and/or on-the-job training during their probationary period or when re-assigned. During that time they are given progressively complex tasks to complete. At the end of the probationary period, the team leader and Manufacturing Management determine if the person is qualified, requires more training, or will be re-assigned. Welding is performed by and under the supervision of certified welders. Electrical wiring is performed by and under the supervision of licensed electricians. Any needed plumbing is performed by and under the supervision of licensed plumbers. 

For PSG to do the right thing in all we do and to ensure the satisfaction of our customers, all products and processes are monitored to assess their effectiveness in meeting with our quality standards.

Modifying a Shipping Container: A How to with DropBox Inc.

Posted on Fri, Oct 05, 2018 @ 13:10 PM

DBI-Blog15684Modifying a Shipping Container: A How-To with DropBox Inc.

Modifying a shipping container into any number of portable, turn-key solutions can save you time and money compared to traditional stick built construction. When a standard ISO shipping container is used for portable solutions like security gates, chemical storage units, and portable labs, it can withstand weather of all kinds in a wide range of climates and environments. The corten steel used in the construction of the ISO shipping container is stronger than regular steel, won’t rust or corrode, is mold resistant, and is therefore the perfect building block. Shipping containers are affordable, versatile, can help to reduce your carbon footprint, and can be quickly constructed and easily relocated from site-to-site throughout the life of the container. 

Some of the things you will need before beginning construction your shipping container modification include but are not limited to welders, grinders, hammers, nails/screws, a wide range of power tools, and any number of doors, windows, insulation, and ancillary items required for your specific build.

First things first. You have to have a plan. Maximizing your upfront engineering and design efforts will not only help you map out your ideas but also insure that you think things through prior to beginning construction.  

Once you have your plans all worked out you'll have to find and purchase a new or used shipping container, arrange the delivery and gather all the necessary building materials. At this point it may or may not be required that you have heavy machinery to move the container into location.

Now that you've got your box it's time to begin construction.

Depending on the desired outcome and purpose of your shipping container modification it may be necessary to remove or cut out portions of the walls, ceiling, and/or floor of the container using any number of grinders, saws, and/or welding equipment. 

After you've made the needed cut outs it's time to weld in any additional supports to mount the doors and windows, build walls inside of the container with either wood or aluminum studs, and frame jambs and headers around the wall openings as needed.

Install your pre-hung doors and windows into the framed wall openings. Place all of the electrical receptacles, switches and wiring as well as any plumbing needed. Coordinate with a licensed electrician or plumber if needed. Insulate all of the walls with fiberglass, mineral wool, or spray-on expanding foam insulation.

Attach the dry wall, or other wall treatment, to the studs with screws. Install interior wall, ceiling and floor finishes as desired.

Install an HVAC wall/window unit by creating an opening for it, framed similar to a window. Install light fixtures and any finishing touches based on the specific solution you're going for
and you're up and running!

DropBox Inc. Cuts the Ribbon on New Manufacturing Facility

DropBox Inc. Cuts the Ribbon on New Manufacturing Facility

Having rented the "Fletcher Building" located at 1033 Port Road Wurtland, Kentucky for over two years, the decision has been made and the ribbon has been cut to purchase the building and bring the property into the Portable Solutions Group family of companies as our very own manufacturing facility. Perfectly set up for shipping container modification, the building has overhead cranes and a paint booth used to complete a wide range of DropBox Inc. products. Located just two miles away from our Scott Street location in Worthington, the additional manufacturing space will provide a perfect shipping container modification area for PSG. Complete with over 50,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space, the new location will more than double the company’s current manufacturing footprint. 

DropBox Inc. has recently gained substantial contracts for the construction of a wide range of Blast Resistant Modules and Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals. With the addition of these contracts to the Portable Solutions Group portfolio of future work, the decision to purchase the property made absolute sense.  

At the ribbon cutting which took place, Tuesday September 18th at 4:00 pm, several of the areas prominent leaders including State Representative Dr. Danny Bentley, Greenup County Judge Executive Bobby Carpenter, Ashland Alliance CEO Tim Gibbs, and our very own President/CEO Robert Slagel addressed the crowd. In celebration of this historic moment for job creation in the Tri-State, over 100 members of the community and Portable Solutions Manufacturing team gathered for the ribbon cutting and champagne toast at the new home of our manufacturing facility.
