The project, named Water Sports Center Halsskov, is located in a former ferry port in Korsør, Denmark. Its most defining feature is a diving tower made from three recycled shipping containers. The containers are painted bright yellow and stacked atop each other. The shipping containers are a good fit for the port and add a splash of color in the industrial setting. Holes have been made in the containers to aid ventilation and stairs within provide access to diving points at heights of 4 m (13 ft) 8 m (26 ft) and 11 m (36 ft).

Elsewhere on the site, Sweco installed a building with toilets, changing room, storage and outdoor showers. This is also made from shipping containers that are painted yellow but the exterior is lined with low-maintenance heat-treated sustainably-sourced wood. Both the facilities and diving structure are illuminated with low-energy LED lighting.

Other attractions at the Water Sports Center Halsskov include a climbing wall, three beach volleyball courts and a viewing point. Existing paths and parking areas have also been upgraded.

Sweco also repurposed existing harbor fittings and bulwarks to make benches, fencing and decks.

The Water Sports Center Halsskov was completed in 2017.

European Ski Resort Constructed With Shipping Containers

Shipping containers can serve many needs when they’re repurposed in a whole new way. For example, you can create gardens and grow fresh fruits and vegetables in urban areas. They also have been repurposed as full-fledged tiny homes, spare studio spaces, and most recently, a ski resort. That’s right: A ski resort in Eastern Europe is literally made of shipping containers.

The Quadrum Ski and Yoga Resort in Gudauri, Georgia, offers two reasons why it’s good for the environment. Not only is it mostly made out of repurposed shipping containers, cutting out the need for new materials and waste, but it’s in an area that impacts the least amount of space. How so? The ski resort is built as a five-level pyramid structure and it descends down the side of a mountain.

Each of the rooms include beautiful wood paneling and panoramic windows. Options include a single room, double room, family suite for five people, or a deluxe suite.

Breakfast is included and there’s an additional lobby bar to relax in. With free Wi-Fi available, people can enjoy their favorite activities when taking a break in their rooms.

Living in a shipping container has been catching on. In fact, people can simply order a “tiny home” that’s made from a new shipping container directly off of Amazon. They can easily be customized to fit your needs and they have options for renewable energy. It runs close to $40,000 including shipping, which isn’t bad for an interor of 320 square feet.

Shipping Containers Used In Farming Operations

Using the small interiors of shipping containers, the facility in Summerville farms has moved its operations indoors. By retrofitting 320 square feet of storage, they converted available space into a highly productive aeroponic farm. Seed to harvest, they can produce nearly 4,000 heads of lettuce in just five weeks. That’s almost 13 heads of lettuce per square foot and a little more than 40,000 per year.

Farming traditionally requires land – and plenty of it. In urban areas, farming is nearly impossible where space is limited and expensive. Food often is shipped in from rural farms. But what about all the space above the ground?

Some innovative farmers like Tiger Corner Farms have taken an innovative approach to vertical farming. Recycling empty shipping containers, they’ve created mobile farms that can be functional in any environment.

They use an alternative method of growing called aeroponics. Hydroponics grows crops in a soilless environment where roots bathe in a flowing nutrient solution. In aeroponics, roots dangle in a humid, nutrient-rich atmosphere rather than liquid.

Every 10 minutes, nutrient solution is misted over the roots inside the panels. The excess solution drains to a reservoir to be recycled. An average of 10 gallons of water is used daily. This system not only reduces manual labor, it tracks every crop from seed to harvest.

The shipping container is a closed system that relies completely on LED lights mounted on all sides of the panels. The light spectrum is optimized for plant growth. LEDs generate very little heat, which reduces the need to cool the container.

Of course, this self-contained system relies on power. Any failure in the system, whether power or a component, will alert the manager via phone or other means. In the meantime, generators keep the system running.

Many innovative farming operations now see its product as a way of filling a need for local produce in an urban environment. This self-contained farm can be operational in most areas and grow a variety of leafy greens and herbs.

Farmers can now finance the purchase of portable storage containers

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency has announced farmers can now finance the purchase of portable storage containers as part of changes to the Farm Storage Facility Loan program.

Currently, the Farm Storage Facility Loan program offers low interest financing options to help food producers build or upgrade facilities. As these structures tend to be larger, it’s not uncommon for commercial farmers to take advantage of the loan program. Smaller and independent farmers face difficulties because they needed the storage space, but may not have the resources to secure a loan.

With the changes, smaller farmers can now afford to take out loans in order to obtain portable storage units.

New microloan option

As part of the changes, the USDA is introducing loans with a microloan option that come with smaller down payments.

This new microloan option offers farmers the ability to qualify for a smaller down payment of 5 percent while not requiring them to provide any prior production history. According to the USDA, the total of the loan cannot exceed $50,000.

It is expected that the microloan programwill be of particular benefit to small ranchers, farmers and producers who do not have access to large, commercial storage.

The USDA noted these changes are a continuation of policies and efforts that have been ongoing since 2009 in an effort to help further the development of local food sources.

Growing demand of local food

Based on current trends, it is no surprise why the USDA is placing an emphasis on local food producers and helping them fulfill their storage needs.

“Local food sales are expected to increase to a market value of $20 billion in 2019.”

Recognizing this trend, over $1 billion has been invested in regional farming operations. Some of that money has gone toward infrastructure and training farmers.

Why storage is needed

If predictions from the USDA hold true, farmers will need to meet the growing demand from consumers. In turn, they will need more equipment and materials to ensure farming operations meet demands.

In the foreseeable future, farming operations will benefit from using mobile storage containers to store valuable equipment on their land. With this program’s help from the USDA, farmers will have an easier time obtaining these portable storage units.

5 Reasons Why Shipping Containers Are Better Than Storage Sheds

We’ve discussed in previous posts, the notion that using shipping containers for long-term storage is a great way to keep your belongings safe amid both weather, larceny or anything else the world may subject it to.  Some have argued that storage sheds work just as well, and should be considered before shipping containers.  In this article, we will debunk this opinion and highlight why you should choose a container instead of a storage shed.

Storage sheds are great.  You can have one constructed by a professional, or even teach yourself how to build one using the latest YouTube video.  They can be customized to fit your space and your needs, and can be built in such a way as to match their current surroundings (your home or workspace).  However, there are 5 reasons why the storage shed is outmatched by the shipping container, and here they are:

Reason 1:  They are Weatherproof

At some point, any storage facility will be tested by mother nature.  Spring rains, winter snowfall, gale force winds, or perpetual humidity are just a few of the elements that any long-term storage will encounter.

Water damage can be one of the most detrimental issues to affect most any storage.  Sheds made from wood or any other absorptive materials can potentially succumb to warping or rotting because of continued moisture from rain, snow or humidity.

Warping can cause doors to no longer close or for the entire foundation to lose shape, while Rotting can cause mold or fungus to grow, creating an unsanitary and unsavory storage environment.  Long-term, the effects caused by water damage will eventually diminish the integrity of your storage and will likely break or fall apart if left unattended to.

Shipping containers, on the other hand, are 100% waterproof and provide a haven for your possessions from not only moisture and its effects, but from wind and fire as well.  Being that these containers are comprised of fire and waterproof durable steel, whatever you keep inside will remain safe and secure.

Do you live in an area with continually strong winds?  If yes, then you’ll need storage much sturdier than your average shed.  Shipping containers made from steel are very heavy, and as such, they are impervious to even the fiercest of winds.  Your possessions will remain safely inside while the sheds of your neighbors may be unfortunately blown over.

Reason 2:  No Assembly Required

It’s true that many sheds can be put together by either yourself or a professional.  If you choose to assemble your shed, can you guarantee that you’ll follow instructions precisely, devoid of any structural errors?  If not, then you may be putting your possessions at risk.

You can choose to hire someone to build your shed, but are you ready to pay an exorbitant amount for the finished product?  Labor fees for assembly on top of the initial price of your shed will add up, especially if you opt for the more complex and high-quality selections on the market.

If you are in search of a place to safely store your tools, equipment or virtually anything else without having to worry about the labor or cost of assembly, a shipping container is your best option.  Our containers can be dropped onto your property and are then immediately ready for use.  There are no separate pieces and there is no foundation required.  No need to break out that power drill; we’ve already done the work, saved you time and saved you money!

Reason 3:  They Are Secure

Sheds are most often made up of wood, plastic, or other materials that can easily be broken into or deconstructed.  Throwing an expensive lock on the door of your shed doesn’t necessarily keep your stored goods safe.  Your storage facility is only as secure as its weakest point, which may be the door hinges, the frame, foundation, etc.

Shipping containers are the most secure option for storing expensive and valuable belongings.  Because our containers are made of steel throughout, with only either single or double doors, no thief would have an easy time breaking in.  From the roof to the hinges, there no weak point to be found on a shipping container.

Reason 4:  They are Less Expensive

As with most purchases, when buying a shed, you’ll get what you pay for.  If you’re hoping to save money when buying a storage shed, you’re likely to encounter the issues mentioned above such as water damage, assembly flaws and theft.  Opting for a more expensive shed is something to consider, but fees for assembly will rise, respectively.

Shipping containers are relatively inexpensive, and as we’ve discussed, save you the money you would’ve spent on assembly.  What’s more, they last forever due to their durable steel construction, unlike a wooden or plastic shed.  So, rather than buying two or more sheds throughout your lifetime, one shipping container would suffice.

Lastly, because they last forever, shipping containers in good condition are easy to re-sell.  Good luck trying to sell your older, worn out storage shed!

Reason 5:  They Look Cool!

Just because you’ve chosen a shipping container for your storage does not mean that you must sacrifice aesthetics.  Shipping containers can be customized and tailored to have both a modern and elegant appeal.  Paint your container to match your home or office building, or cut in windows and extra doors to make this container your own.

Don’t be fooled by your preconceived notions relating to the size of containers, either.  While you may be picturing an oversized rectangle atop a flattened ship bed, the truth is we offer shipping containers of many sizes.  Choose from as small as an 8 x 10 container or as large as an 8.5 x 53!

Convinced?  Then it’s Time to Buy!

If you’re convinced that a shipping container is the better option over a traditional storage shed, contact our team at any time.  We’d be happy to discuss your exact needs and set you up with the perfect container.

Shipping Containers for Natural Disaster Preparedness

In the wake of so many tragic natural disasters taking place both in the United States and abroad, disaster preparedness is top of mind for many business owners and families.  Prepping for a natural disaster can range from very minimal planning and shopping to the more complex preparations like designing a storage facility and temporary shelter.  Utilizing storage containers for natural disaster prep is a great way to secure belongings and to create a safe place to go for you and your loved ones.

Below we’ll discuss the ways in which storage containers like those sold by our experts at Instant Storage can be ideal for whatever your disaster plans may be.  Being that mobile storage containers come in many sizes, certain options are more suited for some projects than others.  If you have any questions regarding the best use of a particular container, don’t hesitate to contact our team.

Portable Storage Containers As Long Term Storage

If you are interested in storing your emergency supplies inside a container, there is much to consider.  First, the amount of storage needed is dependent on several factors.  Will you be storing for only yourself or do you have a large immediate or extended family who may need supplies?  

Storing just enough supplies for yourself can be accomplished easily with an 8×10 portable storage container (the smallest dimensions offered by our company).  This option has a capacity of 80 square feet – enough space to comfortably store nonperishable food items, bottled water, a generator and all other essentials.  

8×10 shipping containers set themselves apart in terms of strength and durability, so you can rest assured that your goods are safe.  Being that most containers can hold an average of 55,000 pounds, you need not concern yourself with the weight of your supplies.  Additionally, they are well suited to withstand the elements, so your goods can be protected amidst the worst weather and natural disasters.

Whether you’re battling flooding, harsh winds or even earthquakes, shipping containers used for storage of emergency supplies are built to last.  Apart from natural disasters, these containers are ideal when faced with looters.  During the most recent hurricanes (Harvey and Irma), stores and residences faced the imminent threat of larceny.  Utilizing our double-door containers eliminates this threat because they are virtually impenetrable. In many cases, business owners will just rent a shipping container while they wait out the natural disasters and then have them picked up once things settle down.  

Shipping Containers As An Emergency Shelter

In addition to their optimal storage implications, shipping containers make excellent shelters in extreme situations.  In March of this year, our team looked at the application of storage containers as living spaces.  This concept can easily be applied to the need for living space amid a natural disaster.

Whether your goal is to create a temporary rectangular shelter, or to produce a multi-level complex designed to withstand the elements, shipping containers are a viable option.  They can be tailored to fit whatever may come your way.

To protect against both winds and flooding, stacking shipping containers can be a solution.  This is because each container is designed to uphold the weight of eight more on top of itself.  Furthermore, being that each container weighs between 5,000 and 8,000 pounds without anything inside, lends to the fact that gale force winds will have little success in toppling your construct.

Their design is centered on durability.  As such, threats to their longevity are minimal.  If you set yourself up inside a container with proper ventilation, a generator, sleeping quarters and nonperishable food items, you can survive in this temporary shelter for a short period of time.  Larger families would benefit from one of our larger containers, and may be interested in our high cube options.

Regardless of the size you choose, if your needing safety for a matter of hours or days, the strength of our shipping containers might be an option.

Final Thoughts

Today, it seems that natural disasters are at the forefront of news and the interoffice commentary.  Regardless of whether you live near the ocean or inland amongst the mountains and forests, you and your family are not immune to the potential of a natural disaster occurring in your proximity.

Taking even the most minor steps toward emergency preparations can help to put you at ease and to offer you and your loved ones a sense of control and power over an ever-changing environment.  If you’re someone looking to take a step further toward disaster preparations and are considering a shipping container for emergency storage or shelter, our team at Instant Storage would be happy to assist.

5 Reasons to Rent a Storage Container For Your Special Event

If you are a coordinator for any type of special event, then you’re no stranger to the hassles that come with searching for the right amount of cost-effective and secure storage for your event materials.  Organizing the collateral and logistical items for any event can be daunting, even for the most seasoned event professional.

Instant Storage Shipping containers might just be your solution, and today we will discuss the 5 reasons why you should consider storage containers for your next special event.  Whether you’re planning a music or food festival, sporting event, or even a family reunion, it’s time you considered a portable container as a solution to your storage needs.

Reason One:  There is Zero Setup Time

Second only to planning, setting up for a special event is one of the most time-consuming undertakings of the occupation.  Building event tents and coordinating decorations, displays and attractions can take days and even weeks.  The last thing your team should concern themselves with is building out their storage facilities.

Renting storage containers eliminates the time guzzling task of building on-site storage.  With Instant Storage, you merely place an order that matches your specific storage needs, and then set your delivery date.  This container will be dropped at the desired location, and from there, it will be ready for your use.

No longer will you need to construct temporary floors, tenting or temporary walls just to store your much needed supplies.  Opting for a storage container is akin to manifesting storage space practically before your eyes.

Reason Two:  Shipping Containers Are Your Most Secure Option

For many reasons, tenting and other temporary structures are not the most secure sites to store your valuable event materials or merchandise.  While other temporary stowing options are often waterproof, there is no guarantee that your goods will weather the rain, snow or harsh winds. With storage containers, you’re assured that your supplies are within the walls of a sealed and sturdy container that will withstand the worst weather conditions.

Additionally, and at no extra charge, Instant Storage provides a highly effective lock box, adding an enhanced level of security to your container. Designed to be strong enough to withstand the toughest conditions, thieves will be met with a discouraging challenge if they intend to break into one of our containers.

Reason Three:  Portable Storage Containers are Multipurpose Facilities

While we’ve discussed in detail the benefits of storing your goods within a container rather than another temporary storage option, there are several other potential uses for these giant metal boxes.  Many special events are now utilizing them for makeshift storefronts and workspaces.

Consider the modern industrial look of a storage container and their applications as office and recreational space, much like we’ve discussed in our previous posts.  Apply that appeal to your exposition space or event activities, and the results could be ideal.

Reason Four:  They are Clean and Aesthetically Pleasing

In the past, you may have been dissuaded to use a storage container at your event due to their rough appearance.  However, the containers that we utilize are well-kept, painted and exceedingly clean upon arrival to any site.  You can rest assured that our containers are noticeably appealing and professionally attended to.

In a recent article, we discussed just why folks are interested in looking to containers as a housing solution.  If people are considering residing in one, perhaps it’s time to rethink their attractiveness and their applications in an event setting.

Reason Five:  They are Your Most Cost-Effective Option

While the pricing for temporary structures will vary depending on your vendor and your specific needs, utilizing storage containers is often your most cost-effective option.  Especially for events in need of multiple facilities, it is frequently the case that, when adding up the costs for sturdy and stable flooring and tenting, coupled with security features, the costs become exorbitant.

By choosing to rent a storage container, it means eliminating the need for building floors, constructing tenting, and concerning yourself with security features.  A container accomplishes these goals in an affordable manner.  For information on our pricing structure, contact one of our experts.

Conclusion

As a special event coordinator, you have many options when it comes to storing your important event necessities.  Before you turn to temporary options that can’t offer your total security, weatherproof capabilities, or time and money saving options, consider Instant Storage as the most suitable alternative.

We guarantee that our products and our service standards are superior and are aligned with the needs of any special event.  For more information on our portable storage container offerings, or to request a quote, feel free to call our shipping container experts at 1-866-615-7368 or request a quote today.

The Latest Trend: Shipping Container Parks

It may come as a surprise to you, but your local mixologists, foodies and retail junkies may have found a new place to frequent:  A Container Park.  We’ve already discussed the potential benefits of Container Living, containers for urban farming, and the traditional storage benefits of industrial containers.  It’s high time we dove into the benefits and joys of using a shipping container for vendors and retail.

Case Study:  The Downtown Container Park in Las Vegas, Nevada

Perhaps one of the most well-known and adorned examples of retail shipping container parks is that of the Downtown Container Park in Vegas.  This cultural hub located on historic Freemont Street is bustling with boutiques, unique cuisine, and live entertainment virtually all the time.

Described as being an open-air shopping center, this park offers everything from upscale restaurants to food-truck style grub and everything in-between.  This 19,000-square foot area consists of a mixture of forty-three re-purposed shipping containers and forty-one Xtreme cubes to house roughly 39 shops, restaurants and bars.

This park is truly amazing, but why should someone consider something like this as an option for their business?  In 2014 alone, the area saw over 18,000 visitors per day, on average.  This adds up to about 126,300 people per week who patronized this park.  These businesses are gaining a lot of exposure, and this exposure could be attributed to the mere novelty of the concept of shipping containers as retail space.  

Where Else Do Shipping Container Parks Exist?

San Diego

In 2015 The Quartyard opened up to feature live music, libations and food trucks.  Since its inception, its grown into what’s now known as a focal point for festivals, craft beer and even well-kept dog parks.

Other Parts of Nevada

In Reno, NV, the concept of using shipping containers as housing for bars and restaurants is beginning to catch on.  In early 2017, The Eddy, an outdoor, fenced in area with shipping containers surrounding it, opened in downtown Reno, Nevada.  This beer garden and community watering hole is the first of its kind to reach the area.

Offering a mix of outdoor recreation and aesthetically pleasing outdoor seating, this container park is an exceedingly popular spot for friends and families of all ages to gather.  

These outdoor shopping and eatery centers are popping up across the country.  Who knows how long it will be before one pops up in our neighborhood or local downtown region.  Will your business be ready?  Are you considering hopping on this trend that seems to have no end in sight?  

Is a Shipping Container Park Right for Your Retail Business?

Other California cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Long Beach have already climbed aboard and are thriving.   So, are you interested in developing your own Container Park or joining a current one?  According to Entrepreneur.com, setting up shop in a refurbished shipping container may be an affordable and appealing alternative to traditional retail.

In an article that follows the story of one refurbished sunglasses retailer, The Entrepreneur describes how this sunglasses business could charge a premium for their sunglasses, control the presentation of their product, and attract their ideal consumers.

Food for Thought:  This sunglasses shop was excelling in New York City, paying only $1,400 per month including utilities for the space.  Paying that amount for retail space in New York City is unheard of.  It’s probable that shipping container park life is more affordable than traditional brick and mortar.

About Us

If you are in the least bit intrigued by the idea of developing a Container Park in your area, there’s a lot you’ll need to know.  Where portable storage containers come from, how much they cost, and what it takes to begin construction are all questions you’ll need answers to.  Instant Storage can help get you these answers, give us a call today!

Are Portable Storage Containers Strong Enough For My Project?

When considering durability, strength, and craftsmanship, the term “military grade” often comes to mind. Often times when considering using a storage container for a project, there is a high probability you are looking for something that is safe, secure, and can take some level of abuse both inside and out. If you are concerned about whether or not a storage, also known as a shipping container can stand up to whatever it is you plan on using it for, keep in mind, own own U.S. Military uses them in several strategic ways across the globe.

Besides using mobile storage units for their primary purpose of storage, there are several other quite incredible uses that the military chooses to use the containers for. Some of the most innovative are:

  • Mobile barracks
  • Mobile offices
  • Mobile training facilities

Innovative Shipping Container Uses by the Military

Perhaps the most controversial of the three uses listed above is the mobile training facilities. This is due to the fact that much of the training and operations for drone pilots and drone flights are done from a mobile shipping container. Why use a shipping container for something like this? Well, as discussed earlier, portable storage units are safe, secure, and can stand up to the elements in almost any condition which in turn protect its contents. In fact, shipping containers have withstood the test of time being used as the chief method of transportation in the shipping industry for over 60 years.

Mobile storage units are as versatile as they are tough. For example, the same portable shipping container used as a training office can be turned into a studio apartment used as a barrack for a soldier or even an office for a commanding officer. The containers are made of steel which ensures protection from the elements as well as an adaptable structure for any minor modifications such as creating windows.

Storage Container Stats

The typical 20 foot storage container can weigh upwards of 5,000 pounds where a typical 40 foot storage container can weigh upwards of 8,000 empty. However, the impressive part is the amount of payload these containers can accommodate. A 20 foot mobile shipping container can accommodate over 55,000 pounds! The 40 foot mobile shipping container can accommodate over 60,000 pounds of payload! It might be a little more clear why the military has chosen to incorporate them for so many different uses.

We look forward to answering any questions that you may have that are specific to your project. But if strength and durability was your main concern, we hope we’ve alleviated it. Chances are, if it’s strong enough for the military, it’s strong enough for your project. Please contact us at your earliest convenience and we’ll be happy to help you rent a storage container today. in any way we can.

A little 411 on the 911: On-Demand Storage Containers Provide Relief in a Pinch

There’s no two ways about it.  People don’t think about storage until they have to.  Usually that spells an impending move or renovation.  However, there are times when storage needs move quickly from a rarely contemplated issue to a code red concern.  It stands to reason that emergencies, severe weather events and other unpredictable scenarios keep storage companies like us incredibly busy.  

Almost invariably, it’s portable, or on demand storage companies that can respond to folks who find themselves in pressing circumstances.  Instant Storage, as the name implies, is storage made available on the spot – any spot where a medium to large container can be delivered and unloaded, in fact.  People who face a disaster like residential fire or flood don’t have the time or resources to load up their belongings and move them to some distant, fixed location facility.  In such times, people need all the fast help they can get to salvage their lives and avoid losing more property than they already have.  Enter the big, steel box heroes.
