With sunny days ahead, it’s time to think about backyard storage.

Spring has sprung on Vancouver Island and many of us need a better backyard storage solution for the yard toys and gardening equipment that we’re all looking forward to using throughout the spring and summer. Why not use a shipping container?

A shipping container is ready to go as a secure, weatherproof alternative to your typical backyard storage shed. No assembly required. With space at a premium in many yards, we carry smaller containers that may just fit the bill. An 8′ or 10′ long container will take up less of your valuable backyard real estate, but will still provide you with plenty of storage space.

If you choose a smaller unit, there are many ways that you can organize the container to make efficient use of the storage space. Installing shelving can be a quick and easy way to to create more floor space and keep your storage functional. We carry a shelf system specifically designed for use in containers. Click here to see our hanging shelf system in action. It’s quick and easy to install at home and doesn’t require any additional hardware. We can supply just the shelf brackets, or we can cut some planks to length and install the entire system for you prior to delivery.

Our new containers come with high security lock boxes to ensure that nobody can cut off your padlock. We can also add an after-market lock box to our used containers. There is no better peace of mind than knowing that your backyard storage is locked up tight and is inaccessible to would be thieves. We also carry several lock options to ensure that your lock fits right inside the lock box.
