If you’ve forgotten why shipping containers have become such an effective form of storage then here’s a quick reminder: They are wind and waterproof (they’re used to travelling the high seas) - which includes being sealed around their doors which makes them safe and secure and easy to lock up.Aside from that, they are movable structures and as such, storage containers are not subject to the usual council by-laws and regulations like permanent, immovable structures.
They can be used for storage or site offices. If you need your storage container as a site office you can add shelves or windows as the case may be. They can be adapted to house conduits for cabling and wiring. At Betta Storage, we engage in storage container modification all the time. If you have a business that travels from fair to fair or market to market, they can be modified to serve as a shop front or display centre.
For home, they are fantastic for getting rid of clutter or for storing things that are only needed for part of the year. Depending on cupboard space, you could quite safely store your off season clothes in a cool, dry storage container in the knowledge that they would be in the same condition when they were needed again.

You could park and pack your storage container and when you’re done,
