Shipping containers, also known as conex boxes or cargo containers, are secure, easy to relocate, completely customizable and can be set up quickly. Plus, our PV3 Safety Containers are highly secure and come equipped with an emergency exit release should anyone get locked in. They also make great storage sheds for lawn and landscape companies, businesses in the middle of relocating offices or retail locations carrying holiday overstock or other specialty supplies. Because of its small footprint and steel construction, a 10-foot container can provide commercial storage, extra space for medical clinics and construction storage and workspace.
