For over twenty years, American Trailer and Storage (AT&S) has been providing the Midwest with the very best in portable storage. We offer semi-trailers, shipping containers, and portable storage containers for all of your storage needs.
Shipping containers or storage containers are an obvious choice for many of our customers. Secure and durable, they offer cost-effective storage that outperforms many other traditional storage models. Why drive across town to a deserted self-storage facility when you can rent or purchase a wind and water-tight storage space that is available just steps from your worksite, office, or residence? Every one of our shipping containers is constructed from the strongest cor-ten steel and has been designed to withstand almost anything.
Shipping containers have numerous uses in the domestic market. Many of our customers choose a shipping container because they need extra storage space on-site, but some of our clients have additional needs. At AT&S, we have modified custom shipping containers for a variety of uses. The container modifications that we provide include HVAC, windows, electrical wiring, and shelving. AT&S has helped customers to create firework stands, mobile offices, and even a lunchroom.
As much as we enjoy helping our customers with their own projects it’s also fun to see what others have achieved with modified shipping containers.
Check out some of our favorite shipping container projects below.
This 3 story Copenhagen office building takes full advantage of all the benefits of using shipping containers to construct for a commercial space.
The office building was built quickly, the raw structure only took two days to install and total construction time was only 4 months. It is designed to be fully transportable and is easily taken apart so it can be moved to a new location. The office building is also designed to be highly energy efficient.
Shipping containers help save lives with this fire training facility. The two-story structure allows firefighters to practice putting out real fires.
The entire facility is made out of five shipping containers and only cost about $20,000 to build. One container serves as a burn room for live-fire training. The other four containers have movable walls that can be laid out as needed.
The 40FT Brewery takes its name from the two 20ft shipping containers that it are its home. The brewery’s owners decided to use shipping containers for their new business due to a short term lease and the desire to protect their investment by making the entire brewery portable. If need be, 40FT Brewery can moved to a new lot in a matter of days–or less!
The low cost of shipping containers has also allowed the brewery to expand quickly. The business has added two more 20ft containers since they opened and have plans to add a 40ft container in the coming year. Lower costs equals more flexibility and greater profits!
