Not only do we at Shipping Containers Mackay sell and hire containers, but our team of experts have years of experience in modifying them as well. Converting shipping into something more is a task that is our favourite job for us. We’ve got loads of experience when it comes to creating modified containers for commercial and industrial clients. We know exactly what each sector requires out of their specific knowledge of a converted shipping container.
We offer a broad selection of modified containers for various purposes, including but not limited to: container shelters, accommodation units, ablution blocks, mobile camps, first aid rooms, site offices, change rooms and lunchrooms. We have all these available pre-made and can easily accommodate any modifications or accessories you may want to add.

Modified Container Costs
For some small business owners, a converted shipping container can mean the difference between being able to start or expand their business and being stuck at the ideas stage. One of the biggest barriers to entry for many Aussies is not a lack of ideas, planning or business savvy but the cost of a physical space for their business. The real estate market is continuing to skyrocket, leaving many unable to get their start as they simply can’t afford the sky-high purchase or rent prices.
A modified container can be designed to your specific budget. By choosing what accessories and modifications you want, we can work together to convert a container that meets all of your requirements. We can go with a simple design or make more complex changes, depending on what you desire. You will have control over the final product and how much you spend on the project.
If you need to set up a mining or construction site quickly, or if you need extra containers for new workers, our pre-made containers are the perfect solution.
Your satisfaction is important to us!
The team at Modified Containers wants you to have an enjoyable experience when creating your container. If for any reason you’re not satisfied, let us know and we’ll work to make it right. And if you’re still not happy, don’t worry – our money-back guarantee has got you covered.
In other words, you’ll love our work–just like many of our satisfied customers. Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, Origin, and Xstrata Anglo American are some examples of large companies we’ve worked with in the past who have all been thrilled with the results. Not to mention the thousands of happy everyday Aussies and business owners in various industries such as mining, railway construction, and energy that we also help out regularly. We’re sure that you will be just as ecstatic as they are after working with us.
What are modified containers and why are they becoming so popular?
A modified shipping container is a container that has been altered in some way, usually to make it more suitable for a specific purpose. The most common modifications are adding windows, doors, and insulation, but other modifications can include electrical wiring, plumbing, and air conditioning. The popularity of modified shipping containers is growing for a few reasons. Firstly, the cost of real estate is continuing to skyrocket, making it difficult for many business owners to find or afford commercial space. Modifying a shipping container is often much more affordable than purchasing or renting traditional commercial space. Second, the versatility of modified shipping containers makes them perfect for a wide range of uses. They can be used as office space, retail space, accommodation, or any other type of space that you need. Finally, the quality of workmanship that goes into modifying a shipping container is second to none. All of our containers are made to the highest standard and come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy with your content for any reason, we’ll do everything we can to fix the problem.
The different types of modifications that can be made to a container!
The most common modifications made to a shipping container are adding windows, doors, and insulation. However, other modifications can include electrical wiring, plumbing, and air conditioning. Adding windows allows natural light to enter the container, which can help to brighten up the space. Doors make it easy for people to enter and exit the container, and insulation helps to keep the space warm in winter and cool in summer. Other modifications that can be made include electrical wiring, plumbing, and air conditioning. Electrical wiring allows you to power the lights and appliances in the container, plumbing allows you to water the plants and run the sink, and air conditioning keeps the space cool in summer.
How to choose the right modifications for your needs.
When choosing the right modifications for your needs, there are a few things to consider. The first is what you will be using the container for. If you need office space, you will need different modifications than if you need accommodation. The second thing to consider is your budget. Some modifications, such as adding windows and doors, are more affordable than others. Finally, you need to think about the climate where the container will be located. If you live in a cold climate, you will need insulation, and if you live in a hot climate, you will need air conditioning.

The benefits of using a modified container over other forms of storage or accommodation
When it comes to choosing a storage solution, there are a lot of different options to choose from. You can use a traditional storage unit, or you can store your belongings in a self-storage locker. But if you’re looking for something more secure and convenient than either of those options, you might want to consider using a modified shipping container. to traditional storage units, modified shipping containers offer several key benefits:
Traditional storage units are often made out of metal or concrete, which makes them very difficult to break into. Modified shipping containers are made out of steel, so they offer the same level of security. Plus, they come with locking doors and windows that can be secured with padlocks.
Traditional storage units are usually located in industrial areas away from residential neighbourhoods. Modified shipping containers can be delivered right to your doorstep, so you don’t have to go out of your way to access them.
Traditional storage units come in fixed sizes, but modified shipping containers can be customised to meet your specific needs. Whether you need extra space for your business inventory or want an accommodation unit that’s big enough for your whole family, we can create one.
