Container News

A great thing about Storage Containers is their versatility. While they are used primarily for shipping or storage, a little imagination can turn them into something completely different.

A charity has recently started using old containers as classrooms in Africa. Computer Aid International has been setting up recycled computers in the new rooms to bring the wonders of computers and the internet to people who may have found it difficult to access books before.

Now, farmers can get updates on the market and nursing students have the opportunity to read the latest research.

And to think all of this started with the help of the humble storage container!

A relatively new company committed to using recycled steel shipping containers to build sustainable structures. They brought this beautiful example to the West Coast Green Conference, where it won over anyone who wasn’t quite sure that container architecture can be functional and attractive. The Harbinger House, if installed fully-outfitted and with all of the spiffy features available, would cost approximately $175/square foot, which is slightly above the national average for new construction. However, a more moderate home could run you roughly 15% less than the national average, making these pre-fab container homes green in more than one way.

Old or New, Storage Containers are always with a great purpose. AZ Container has a varied amount for rent or sale.

New ones and single trip containers for re-sale and storage were few and far between but that changed a few years back and re-sale of new containers became mainstream. 

The recession has made everyone resourceful and we are finding new opportunities.  Suddenly we are finding many more containers available on sites like e-bay as people either go out of business or look to cash in on assets that are no longer needed.  We have found ourselves buying back many that we have sold previously – and thankfully most of them are still in good nick!  A credit to our painters.  We like to keep a range in stock so we are just as happy to buy back a used unit as we are to buy in new ones – depending on customer requirements.  Whatever type of unit we supply we try to make sure it meets our customers requirements at the right price.

Guam's homes will get their real Christmas trees as soon as today, even as some tree sellers haven't announced whether their shipment has been deemed invasive species-free.

At the Guam Girl Scouts headquarters yesterday in Tamuning, George Washington High School Army Junior ROTC students helped prepare the trees for pickup. Most of the trees had been pre-sold.

Vickie Fish, executive director of the Guam Girl Scouts, said a few insects were found in a tree shipment to Guam, but the Girl Scouts were ready.

"We knew the possibility of fumigation (since the order was placed). We always plan for it just in case," she said. In the 20-plus years she's been involved, the Girl Scouts' annual tree sale program has had to fumigate four or five times, she said. The Girl Scouts takes care to protect the environment, and would never distribute trees that could cause problems, she said.

"(Girl Scouts) learn to have respect and responsibility for themselves and the world around them," she said.

Fish expressed her gratitude for the students' help with the tree sales.

"This is a huge help to us, and (the students) make it fun. ... There's a lot that goes behind the scenes and this effort makes me really proud," she said.

Just by searching on the internet, it’s easy to see that there are a variety of distributors around the nation which sell these containers, otherwise known as storage containers. AZ Containers has yards in Phoenix and Flagstaff. There are benefits to buying a container from local companies. The staff likely has a vast knowledge of the units, which is beneficial to someone who has never purchased one before. They can probably provide a great variety of sizes and conditions, making it easy to buy exactly the storage box that you want and need. Also, going with a local distributor like AZ Container can be convenient for the purposes of seeing the unit before purchasing it. When it comes to delivery options, these businesses typically provide on-site delivery where you need it, shipping easily on their own fleet of trucks and trailers. This can be a help because most people are not equipped with their own truck and trailer. Sometimes they may also provide other options such as renting or lease-to-own. Many of the companies might offer container modifications as a service, such as installing a window or door. (see http://azcontainers.com/modifications)  The benefit to all the options and service is that the company like AZ Container can deliver exactly what you are looking for.

Modified containers are very popular and an excellent choice. Most mobile storage companies offer modified units and will work with you on the best container for your needs. Although painting containers is always a good idea some modifications have negative aspects. Popular "roll up doors" for example are not as secure and do not last as long as the standard Cargo door. Another fact to think about is that standard shipping containers are manufactured to create a weather proof 100% seal. If you modify the container in certain ways you may be compromising the inherent advantages associated with a water tight sealed container. Linked below is a list of common modifications to think about. When you speak to our slew manager, be very clear and specific about your modifications needs and expectations. http://azcontainers.com/modifications

Santiago Dramatically backs up to the Andes Mountains, and a growing number of affluent residents are heading for the foothills in search of fresh air and green space. To limit urban sprawl, no construction is permitted above 1,000 meters. Naturally, That benchmark has become a desirable location, and the local architect’s have joined other architects in building houses that respond to the challenging topography. Their latest, constructed out of shipping containers, has been dubbed the Caterpillar House (House Track), for the way its elongated volumes tilt up and down the steeply sloping site.

The house uses raw steel and exposed concrete in the same direct way Irarrázaval employed them for a design school I built in 2010, at Chile's Pontifical Catholic University. "I want to do buildings are simple and strong," he explains. I became fascinated with the structural potential of shipping/storage containers when I designed a pavilion for the Chilean Biennale in 2000. For the event, I have containers stacked four high and cut away the fronts to frame various architectural exhibits. Since then, I've developed the concept on a smaller scale with two houses. Caterpillar House, though, carries the notion much further by utilizing 12 containers in a richly varied composition where every room is open to light and air.

Container hotels have especially popularized the idea of a “pop-up” structure that can be easily assembled in a short amount of time.

A new smaller version of the container hotel by a European based company that acts more like a portable bed and breakfast, providing guests with a comfortable place to rest in much more intimate locations.

It is comprised of six shipping containers in all: four containers for guest rooms, one for a breakfast/lounge area, and one to be constructed for a sauna room.

The main draw for the small-sized container hotel is its ability to easily pick up and move to more intimate locations, while still providing a comfortable bed and hot shower nearby. Since it takes up much less space, the various rooms could be set down outside a concert, in a park, or even on a bustling city street, all in a matter of hours.
