A storage container turns into a overnight B&B.

Storage containers are proving to be convenient building blocks for everything from classrooms to houses to hotels. Container hotels have especially popularized the idea of a “pop-up” structure that can be easily assembled in a short amount of time.

A new smaller version of the container hotel by a European based company that acts more like a portable bed and breakfast, providing guests with a comfortable place to rest in much more intimate locations.

It is comprised of six shipping containers in all: four containers for guest rooms, one for a breakfast/lounge area, and one to be constructed for a sauna room.

The main draw for the small-sized container hotel is its ability to easily pick up and move to more intimate locations, while still providing a comfortable bed and hot shower nearby. Since it takes up much less space, the various rooms could be set down outside a concert, in a park, or even on a bustling city street, all in a matter of hours.

Canada’s First Container Housing Development Built in Vancouver.

Early last month, Canada got its first recycled shipping container housing development. It is located in the Downtown Eastside area of Vancouver, at 502 Alexander St. The housing project was developed by a Women’s Resource Society, which wanted to create affordable and quality non-market housing units to be rented out to older women.
The housing development is comprised of 12 studio units, each with a net living area of 280 – 290 square feet. All of the units are entirely self-contained, complete with bathrooms, kitchens and an in-suite laundry. With its colorful navy blue and burnt orange exterior walls, the housing blends in perfectly with the other building in the neighborhood.
The base structure of this three-story housing development was constructed from 12 recycled shipping containers. The walls of the units are spray-foam insulated and finished with drywall. The development meets all the national building codes, while it even exceeds the code requirements for insulation and sound transference.
The construction took approximately 8 months, with the first shipping container being transported to the building site on November 30th, 2012 and the project being finished in July 2013. The hard construction costs were $82,500 per unit.
Out of the 12 recycled container units, four were donated. The remaining eight containers were purchased through a broker. The containers contain steel and are worth about $5,000 each, which would typically be too expensive for such an affordable housing development, according to the project development manager.

Choosing the right storage container vendor.

The portable storage container industry consists of both large and small companies that resell units from wholesalers, leasing companies, and industry associations. The vendors may deal exclusively in storage containers or offer them alongside other purchases such as office trailers or prefabricated construction.

While it doesn’t matter what size vendor you work with, there are certain attributes to look for before making a purchase.

The most important point to consider is proximity. Some delivery charges are based on distance, and it’s the most competitive aspect of the industry. Therefore, it’s beneficial to find vendors close to your location. Az Container has 2 yards in the state, covering the Phoenix area and the Flagstaff region of the state.  If possible, select one within 25 to 75 miles of your location as pricing can become prohibitive beyond that.

Working with a local vendor like AZ Container also offers a great opportunity to check out the vendor’s inventory in person. By taking a tour of the facilities, you get a better feel for how they work than you would by ordering through a catalog or over the phone.

Of course, proximity shouldn’t be your only concern. Your vendor should be very knowledgeable about the industry. Like AZ Container, they’ve been in business for a long time, which is usually a sign that they know how to keep their customers happy.

If you need help selecting from several vendors, you can narrow the decision process by asking each vendor for a list of references. AZ Container will supply you with references in businesses similar to yours to find out how the vendors addressed their storage needs. Be sure to ask such questions as:

• Did you have budget concerns that the vendor helped you with?

• Did you require any add-ons such as ramps, shelves, or a lockbox?

• What was the condition of the container(s) you received?

• How much additional cleaning/prep did you need to do to make it ready?

• Did you receive any unexpected charges during the billing process?

• How long did it take to get your container?

• If you had any problems, was the vendor quick to address them?

• Would you work with this vendor again?
