Whether you are seeking TargetBox’s assistance in converting your shipping container into a portable office or if you are doing the conversation on your own, you must follow national electrical standards as well as local building code by-laws. Our container offices come with plug-in panels with a twist-lock plug on a cord so you can either run an extension cord to your office or run it off a portable generator.
Having a portable studio space on your home property is a valuable asset for you and your business. To ensure you understand the full value of your purchase in regards to tax advantages, you are best to speak with a licensed tax professional.
In most cases, we use a one-trip (new) shipping container as the structure of your mobile office unit, with only new interior materials (framing, insulation, flooring, electrical, paint, windows, doors etc.)
TargetBox can outfit three sizes of containers into office spaces: 8’x10’, 8’x20’ and 8’x40’. The size best for you really depends on your property space, your needs and your budget.
If you have the time, energy, ability and money to convert a TargetBox shipping container into an office, we can certainly help by giving you some tips. Remember to follow your local building code and electrical safety code regulations and construct it safely.
TargetBox does not have the authority to tell you if you can or can’t have a sea can on your home or business property. Please consult your municipality’s by-laws for the most up-to-date information on what is allowed.
Cost is certainly one of our most frequently asked questions, and it really depends on your wants and needs. Reach out to our team and you can have an accurate quote within 24 hours.
We transform a solid steel container into everything you need for an office. Although your particular office could be different, here is a brief outline of what we put into it. Every container refurbishment begins with a thorough interior cleaning. We cut holes for the installation of your windows and doors. Your wall, floor and ceiling framing are next, with electrical and spray foam insulation. Your office interior is finished with panelling or drywall, depending on your chosen package. Flooring can also be upgraded to give your new sea container office a classier look. On the outside, we can apply a custom layer of paint and finish it with your business’s logo.
It really depends on the demand for our customization services. If you caught our team between jobs, you’re in luck and your complete office could be delivered in as little as a efw weeks. We are also in the position to be able to add modification capacity when needed, so even in the worst-case scenario you should receive your office in one month. (Still far faster than standard permanent office buildings.) Contact us today to find out your delivery date.
