DropBox Inc. Meeting the Job Site Needs of Customers through Shipping Container Modifications

Posted on Tue, May 05, 2015 @ 10:05 AM

shipping container modification, DropBox Inc, shipping container modifications, shipping container modifications company, conex container modification, custom storage container, shipping container office

DropBox Inc. is an ISO shipping container modification company that specializes in designing, engineering, and build shipping container modifications for a wide range of portable jobsite solutions. In thinking about the wide array of uses for ISO Shipping Containers a number of things come to mind.

Nearly 7.5 million shipping containers enter the United States every year from various countries around the world but only 2.5 million get sent back out for exports therefore a stockpile of shipping containers can be found in ports around the U.S. The ultimate destination for many used shipping containers may be the scrap yard, where they are shredded, and sent to be melted down to raw steel.  Dropbox Inc however has found a number of uses for both new and used shipping containers. Reuse of the containers allows for a more green application than melting them down. This surplus has lead to the start up of a number of shipping container modification companies like DropBox Inc. that manufacture anything from self storage units, modular offices, portable running water restrooms, and shower facilities.  

Recently the popularity of using containers for construction has risen greatly.  For Dropbox Inc. these containers can provide a green type of construction with major advantages in cost savings and strength.  The containers are extremely strong in all dimensions, and allow Dropbox Inc. to build extremely strong buildings without expensive steel fabrication and assembly.

"Shipping container modifications are our business, and we aim to be the best at it", stated Matthew Vonderheide, Business Manager for Dropbox Inc.  "We not only do the structural design, engineering and manufacturing, but we can build around our customers site specific needs".

DropBox Inc. has a longstanding tradition of servicing the commercial and industrial markets with products that meet the customers job site specific needs. DropBox Inc. has become the one stop shop for the consumer when it comes to furnishing their jobsite with the portable solutions they need to make the project go off without a hitch.

A Fortune 500 Company with 27,000 employees around the world, Shaw serves the energy, chemical, environmental, infrastructure and emergency response industries.

Although DropBox Inc. typically builds ISO shipping container modifications from 8' x 20' and 8' x 40' shipping containers the dimensions needed by the customer were easily met by the design team and the decision to "build the box from scratch". Matt Vonderheide, Business Manager for DropBox Inc. stated, "Most of the time customers call they have a confined space that they need to fit an office, shower, or restroom facility in, but this time they just need more space than can be provided by a shipping container. So, we decided to build a box to the dimension they set."

Like all other DropOffices offered by DropBox Inc. these three units will be fully insulated, have electric/data lines, and be easily transported from site to site.

DropBox Inc. How Much Does an ISO Shipping Container Cost?

Posted on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 @ 10:02 AM

iso shipping containers, shipping container, milvan, conex box, iso shipping container modification, DropBox Inc.

The most common of all questions asked by DropBox customers is "How Much Does an ISO Shipping Container Cost?" In an effort to answer that question let's first take a look at the many factors that effect the price of an ISO shipping container. Typically when you shop for a shipping container you will more than likely find a wide variety of prices available. Many first time buyers make the mistake of buying the first cheap container they see and later come to regret it. In order to make an informed decision as a buyer of shipping containers you must understand what goes into shipping container prices in order to determine if that great deal is really as good as it seems.

Factors that help to determine the price of shipping containers are: the size or availability of boxes, location of the shipping container and where it will be delivered, the condition of the box, how long you will be needing the unit, and additional features or custom modifications.

Thinking of simple Supply & Demand Economics it's easy to see how size can affect the price of your shipping container. 20 foot or 40 foot steel container are typically cheaper because there is a bigger supply of these "standard" size boxes. Since they are considered the standard, more are readily available for purchase. This in turn drives the cost down. If you need a larger 45 foot or 53 foot box you will more than likely have to shop around to find a good deal. In a nutshell, as with most anything, the bigger the supply, the lower the price.

Where you'll need the shipping container delivered also effects the price of your shipping container. For individuals and businesses located close to a port, there will be a better chance of being near a number of container sellers that are willing to price their containers more competitively to win your business. If your business is close enough you can also contact ship yards directly to inquire about purchasing units directly from them to drive down the price. If, however, you live far away from accessible containers, you may have to pay a premium to have it shipped to you.

Dropbox Answers the Question: What is a Shipping Container?

Posted on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 @ 11:06 AM

Shipping Containers, ISO Shipping Containers, Milvan Cargo Container


What is a Shipping Container?  At Dropboxinc.com, we get a high volume of traffic and a number of people asking this very question. More often than not our answer is "a solid steel box" or a "heavy duty connex container". In lay terms a shipping container is a steel box consisting of roofs and walls, floors, paint and corner castings.

Roofs and Walls:

Typically roofs and walls of ISO Shipping Containers are constructed by two kinds of materials. Most commonly containers use 16 gauge corrugated steel as the primary component for construction. Corrugated steel is often used because it is cost effective and is easy to repair. From time to time Dropbox Inc will also come across aluminum sheet shipping containers. As and alternative to corrugated steel, aluminum has a lower tare weight but can be easily dented or scratched and is harder to repair.

Shipping Container, Connex Shipping Container, Milvan Cargo Container

Flooring:

The floor of shipping containers is primarily made of wood planks or plywood with steel support beams. The standard thickness for international shipping containers flooring is 1 1/8" thick. Even though wood is relatively expensive, it has significant advantages over other materials; it is strong and resilient, does not dent, and may be easily replaced during repairs. Along with the wood, below the floor are steel cross members or beams that increase the strength so that you can put up to 28,000 kg in a single 20' container.

Paint:

Due to the long-term exposure to the marine elements, containers are manufactured with highly durable, long-lasting paint. The exterior and interior of the bare steel container surface is primed with a zinc rich primer and dried. Once the primer has finished drying a final top coat of marine paint is then applied. The marine paint used to paint shipping containers typically contains zinc phosphate and is based on acrylic resin and non-chlorinated plasticizers.

Corner Castings:

Corner castings are the steel corner supports of a connex container which bears all of the weight when containers are stacked. ISO standards state that the corner posts of an ISO shipping container or milvan should be tested to a load of 86,400 kg. The load barring properties of these units makes them stackable up to 8 high.
