Before, garages were the only option for affordable business facilities. Now they can be replaced with shipping containers. What’s interesting, shipping containers can also be converted into garages.
Many companies including Apple , Disney, Hewlett-Packard, Harley-Davidson, Google, Amazon and Mattel started their businesses in garages. Today’s start-ups, or, the multinational corporation of tomorrow can start their businesses in low-cost container facilities. Imagine what if Apple was started in a shipping container.
Shipping containers are a modular building material that is also durable and feasibly priced. Because of their physical properties, start-up business managers are able to design customized offices.
Shipping containers are in many ways an ideal building material. They are designed to resist harsh environments and therefore they can offer shelter even for natural disasters. They are also designed to be modular what makes it easy to use additional construction material to complete the buildings.
Shipping container construction is said to have lower labor costs compared to traditional construction. This can be explained by their simple steel structure that only requires welding and cutting procedures to be modified. Building a garage for your Harley-Davidson, BMW or Mercedes could not be more pleasant!
For start-ups, container offices are an excellent approach for creating expendable business facilities in relatively little time. They take offices out of garages and create new business opportunities. Shipping containers have another connection with garages. Containers can become them. If you plan your own DIY garage project or plan on starting a business, I recommend sending a price inquiry in Shanghai Metal Corporation‘s contact page.
