12 Creative Ways to Reuse Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are increasingly being repurposed to build many different structures around the globe. Sending empty shipping containers back to their ports of origin is costly when compared to the cost of the container itself, meaning many shipyards are filled with homeless containers.

Two types of containers are available for purchase. The first being worn-out containers that have been retired by shipping companies. These are the most affordable option. The second type of containers available are one trip containers that were only used for a single journey. These containers are often in excellent condition and are the more expensive option.

Where to buy your container? Shipping containers can be purchased from warehouses, port terminals, or even eBay and Craigslist! An important note! Before going ahead with your project, ensure there are no container building restrictions in your area.

Market Inspector is here to help you gather unique ideas for your first or your next shipping container project!

Happy Building!
