Customised Shipping Container Modifications

Our ‘off-the-plan’ modified shipping containers are a quick and efficient way to expand your worksite in a hurry. However they may not be exactly right for your requirements, or you may want some adjustments made to suit your company’s individual needs. Not every site is the same after all, and not every job requires the same equipment. So one of the most practical services we offer at BFS is the ability for you to customise a shipping container to your own specific requirements. You can choose from a long list of shipping container accessories to add to your modified shipping container, or our modification team can help you work out exactly what kind of modified container you require. They’ll listen to what you need, paying attention to all pertinent details (large and small) and will then work out the best way to create your customised shipping container requirements at an incredibly competitive price.

Types of Container Modifications Available

With modified shipping containers it’s pretty much a case of whatever you can imagine, we can build. The sky literally is the limit, as you’ll discover in our Modified Container Special Projects section. Not looking for something too complicated? Basic container modifications are extremely popular, and easily arranged. Standard accessories and customisations include windows, doors, air conditioning, insulation, electrical and phone fit outs, kitchens, hot water systems, ensuites, paint and signage, shelving, specialty flooring and more. Modified shipping containers and the modifications that implemented are so sophisticated now that you will often forget that you’re even in a modified container! But when it’s time to move sites, you’ll appreciate the convenience and portability they offer.

Modified Container Special Projects

One of the most versatile and exciting services we offer is the ability to modify your shipping container into pretty much anything you desire. The more unusual, the more imaginative, the more we like it. People really respond to all the amazingly clever things that can be created out of shipping containers, and images and stories about them are shared all over the internet.

Perhaps you’re an artist who would like to exhibit around South Africa? No unpacking or packing required – just move your portable art gallery to the next location. Already have a business but think a coffee cart in the car park might add value? We can create a specialised shipping container café very easily, just for you. Own a large farm or property with lots of machinery that need a lot of mechanical tinkering? A mobile shipping container workshop can help solve a lot of problems there, and our massive container shelters can add an impressive amount of extra protection and storage.

Music festivals, trade show exhibitions, consumer expos, travelling roadshows and promotional events can all benefit from our eye-catching display units. One of our latest modified container special projects for example involved creating a spectacular portable shipping container stage for a radio station promotion, which doubled as a secure storage facility when the stage wasn’t in use. A delightful dual purpose, win-win modification that can be used again and again.


Modified shipping containers have been used for thousands of different purposes around South Africa, and new forms of ‘cargotecture’ as it is known, are popping up everywhere. Hotels, bars, markets, shopping centres, theatres, restaurants, housing – even swimming pools and saunas – are just some of the incredible uses that our shipping containers are being converted into.
