United Rentals Storage Containers

Providing prefab and shipping container workshop solutions for commercial garages, wood shops, auto-repair shops and more.

United Rentals’ shipping containers and modular structures make excellent workshops for commercial service applications like auto repair and woodworking. Our storage container and prefab workshop units are a more affordable alternative to traditional stick-built construction options. In addition, our shipping container shops are weatherproof and feature lockboxes for padlocks, so you can rest easy knowing that your equipment, tools and supplies are safe. As for our more permanent modular workshop products, you’ll also find considerable price savings over traditional construction, and we build these units off-site and deliver them so you can avoid the downtime associated with construction.

When you partner with United Rentals for your portable workshop needs, know that we are here to ensure your workshop meets all your requirements. Our containerized workshop units can come in 10-, 20- and 40-foot options. Whether you choose a containerized office or a modular building for your workshop, our team will work with you to create a workshop to fit your specifications and job requirements. United Rentals offers custom options like workbenches, surfaces, shelving, hooks, power, HVAC and more. We also offer full turnkey services to help solve your workshop space requirements
