The Benefits of Shipping Container Conversions

Shipping Container ConversionsA shipping container is just a shipping container right? It stores goods and allows them to be shipped around the world or, alternatively, allows individuals to keep their belongings safe and secure, ideal for those moving home and want to keep items that don’t fit into their current home.

However, at Red Box we see shipping containers differently. In fact, we prefer to look at them as a blank canvas that enables us to create some of the most eye-catching and attention-grabbing containers around, whether they be used as exhibition stands, pop-up shops, gyms, restaurants and so much more.


In our opinion, here is a list of the main benefits that shipping containers offer:

  1. When converted, they offer something unique that provides huge benefits to many businesses, whether the shipping container is used as an exhibition stand, bar, office, gym or any of many other exciting possibilities. This includes providing a unique and bespoke setting that is sure to wow and intrigue visitors.
  2. It is possible to transport shipping containers from one location to another, which is perfect if you are attending a variety of exhibitions or events throughout the year.
  3. Converting an unloved shipping container offers incredible value when compared to renting a business property or venue, and provide a greater range of flexibility too.
  4. There are a variety of shipping container sizes available, so you will be able to choose a container that is the ideal size for your specific requirements.
  5. The fact that shipping containers are made from corten steel means that they are extremely strong and durable. This is perfect when they have been converted into an exhibition stand, for example, as you will be sheltered from downpours and windy conditions – always a problem in the UK even in the summer – so event visitors will naturally be tempted to head to your shipping container for cover, which means greater visibility and exposure to your target audience.


So, if you are looking to stand out at an event or exhibition, or simply want a show-stopping office facility, we can help!
