If you plan to store lots of different items in your shipping container, you’ll naturally need a system of separating them from each other. This will keep them safe and contained, as well as provide for easy access when you need something in particular. For that, you’ll need to install shipping container partitions, which will help you maximize the use of the unit as well as all available space.
When using the whole unit as one undivided storage space, things can be tricky even though shipping containers themselves offer the most convenient and cost effective way of storing items. Investing in partitions will help you keep each item in its own space. Shipping containers are especially suited to storing a wide variety of items within one small space. Plus, you can move it around your property as you see fit.
Shipping container partitions can:
- Separate different spaces inside the container in order to maximize its full use.
- Help you better define the space within the container.
- Give you distinct storage areas to keep one type of item from getting mixed in with another.
- Allow for easy access of any item you need, regardless of its placement within the unit.
Advantages of Shipping Container Partitions
Versatility is the biggest benefit of shipping containers. For instance, you can store gardening items in one partition, your kids’ sports equipment in another and excess household goods in yet another. No need to purchase or rent separate units to house all your varied belongings. Partitions can also present a benefit for commercial use. Let’s say you’re a landscaper. You don’t want your flowers and soil to mix in with your heavy duty lawn equipment, do you? Partitions allow you to safely separate these items so each one stays safe.
With partitions, you’re easily able to organize the contents of your container. Not only are the items themselves stored separately, you can label each partition to clearly mark what is inside. Not only that, but you can also add shelving units to the storage container to add even more partitions within partitions.
Let’s say one partition is used to store gardening supplies. You can use the main partition for the spades, rakes and other larger items, while using shelves or even peg boards above that partition to hang your gloves, small tools and accessories.
When thinking about shipping container partitions and how you want them customized for your unit, you will have to consider how many areas you want to separate and how large or small you want each one to be. Once you purchase your unit, you can add as many partitions as you want and customize each one. Or, alternatively, you can ask your shipping container company to provide you with modifications at their site prior to delivery. In that case, let them know how many partitions you want and how far apart you want them. Then, when you get the container delivered, it will be ready to go.
When speaking with your provider about adding partitions, ask the following questions:
- How many partitions can I add?
- How secure and durable are they?
- What care and maintenance do they need?
- How can I clean them?
- Are there are any limits as to what I can use them for?
- What material are they made of?
- How do partitions increase the cost of my unit?
- How long will it take for delivery of a partitioned unit?
Asking the right questions can make the process transparent and seamless every step of the way. Your storage container provider would be happy to sit down with you and discuss sizing options, partitions, other modifications that may make your unit easier to organize.
When you set up the container properly, you can utilize every inch of the unit, which represents a cost effective and efficient use of space. Who doesn’t want to save money and time? As a savvy home or business owner, you understandably want to make every dollar count, and this is one big way in which you can do that.
