    Jim's Container Lockboxes are the most common modification you'll find on our shipping containers. These come standard with Jim's New Build Shipping Containers. The slimline lockbox is an excellent, affordable addition to any second hand shipping container to gain some extra security.

    Personal Access Door

    Personal Access Door​

    If you've ever had to open and close the doors on a container, you'd understand that they can be a bit of a task. Personal Access Doors however, are great for creating easy access to your shipping container. They are generally the same size as a standard external door and when installed will be fully sealed, vermin proof and watertight. If you're worried about security, no need to worry, our PA Doors are pretty much the same as your external door.

    Roller Door

    Roller Doors

    The 2.1m Roller Door is a fantastic addition if you are looking for easy access to, wide-opening door. They can still be locked for secure storage and are a good use for schools and sporting clubs to store equipment in. They are also ideal, as some clients like to use the containers as an additional garage space to store valuable cars, keeping them out of sight and safe from the elements.

    Shipping Container With Side Doors

    Side Doors

    Created by cutting 2 sides out of a container, then fabricating both cutouts with a steel frame. After which the 2 door frames will be hinged to the container structure to create the double side access doors. If you're looking for a garden shed substitute, a container with double side doors will definitely be the way to go. Wide enough (2400mm) to fit the lawnmowers, whipper snipper, wheelbarrows etc, and easy enough access while still have the security of a steel door.

    Glass Sliding Door

    Glass Sliding Doors​

    Sliding Glass Doors can really make the difference when looking at modifications. The full glass feature allows the natural light to fill the container without the need for any windows or light. While letting that early sunrise creep in to create a warm and cozy vibe. Created by framing up the glass sliding doors while fabricating the hinges onto the container structure. While we can do custom sized sliding doors, generally the standard size will almost always be the cheaper option.

    Shipping Container Glass Window

    Glass Window​s

    There isn't much to say about a glass sliding window that isn't already mentioned in the title. Cut out and framed up, the window casing is primed and painted with a rust-resistant layer before installing the window itself. There are 2 various types of windows available; a sliding window, which can be open and closed. Or a standard glass pane, which can't be open.

    Servery 10ft Shipping Container

    Servery Window​

    Have you ever thought about opening your own cafe or market? Well a shipping container with a servery type window is pretty much all you need to get started. Attached with gas struts and fitted to a length of your choice, a servery window is a great option providing both security and purpose. Another great use, especially for a 10ft shipping container, are ticket booths.

    Insulated Shipping Container

    Insulation ​

    Shipping container homes, cafes and other conversions are becoming more and more popular. Now the steel boxes may be robust, but they're no good at keeping a steady temperature and can easily become a sauna on an above average, Aussie day. Having EPS Panel insulation prevents this from happening and paired with an air-con unit, you'll have the ideal start to your very own living space shipping container.

    Window Air Con Unit

    Electrical Fit-Outs

    We have a qualified sparky completing all electrical fit-outs and air-con installations. So you can rest assured that all electrical work is done by a qualified and experienced electrician. Our basic fit-outs, for a 20ft, start with 2x double power points, 2x batten lights and a 15 weatherproof inlet connected to a sub-board for any later electrical extras. While the 40ft container will have 3x batten lights and 3x double power points.

    Split System Air Con

    Split System Air Con

    Various split system units are available and are great for providing a nice cool breeze in the hot Aussie sun while keeping the temp nice and toasty on colder winter nights. We definitely recommend getting insulation of some sort set before deciding on an air-con unit, as it wouldn't be very economical.

    After External Refurb

    External Refurb & Repaint​

    Jim's refurb process turns a 2nd hand shipping container into a like-new unit. First, we will look at the dents and roof removing any major, structure affecting, dents and lifting the roof where no water can hold and cause problems in the future. We will replace any broken seals, buff all walls and doors, treating the existing rust before we prime, paint and seal both inside and outside of the shipping container. The interior we will paint to a standard light grey, similar to the new build containers. The external we can paint to a range of colours, talk with your sales rep today to see what colours we have available.

    Shipping Container Shelving

    Multiple Tiered Shelving​

    With many clients using their container as a shed, workshop or storage unit, shelving can provide organisation and even more storage space. We have plenty of flexibility when it comes to multiple tiered shelving units. We can install heavy-duty bolted down shelving for holding up those heavy and bulky items. If storage space is the goal we can provide inventory shelving around the whole container, to maximise the amount of space to place your goods and gear. Ideal for anyone looking to have their inventory secure and portable.
