Updated: Sep 10, 2022
Shipping containers are rapidly becoming the go-to option for many requirements. More and more businesses and individuals are considering them as solutions for their needs. The reason for that is simple; in short, they are very practical in many ways. They are cheap, or cheaper than any other type of structure that offers nearly as much quality and versatility. They are portable, which is essential for some types of usages and very useful to some others. They are also very durable, secure, their modular nature makes them great for building structures, and they are far faster than normal structures to set up.
Among the most popular types of modified shipping containers are shipping container kitchens. No matter how big a kitchen you require or what type of kitchen you intend to have, shipping containers can be great options for your particular case. We have talked about why it’s a good idea to have shipping kitchens container in other articles, so in this one, we will focus on how much will it cost.
Why Are Shipping Container Kitchens Especially Good in Dubai?
When we are talking about how much will it cost anyone to build any type of structure using shipping containers, there are a few things to consider. First is their availability. If you live somewhere far away from ports or large distribution hubs, there probably isn’t an abondance of shipping containers around to buy. You probably have t
o order one from a port which could be far away, and then you have to pay for its transportation. If you plan to modify that shipping containers, you either have to do it yourself, commission others to do it for you, or leave the job to container modification companies.
If you leave in a port, and especially if you live in a gigantic commercial hub which is Dubai, all of the things we just mentioned will be reasons to reduce your expenses. First, there are few places in the world where there are more shipping containers available, that means you can find the best prices in the world. Second, you live near the port and the container modification factory, so you don’t really need to worry ab
out the cost of transportation either. And third, the modification companies are right there in the port where you live, so stopping by to get your business done in person won’t be a problem at all.
Add to all of these the fact that we are talking about Dubai, and if this kitchen is part of your business, it’s going to be extremely cost efficient, as there is a massive working class in Dubai who will be your customers. As we said before, shipping container structures, and in this case shipping container kitchens, and specifically those in Dubai, are just very practical and make a lot of sense.
What Are Some Other Thins Which Affect The Cost of a Shipping Container Kitchen?
The Number of Shipping Containers Used
Obviously, the more shipping containers you use to build your kitchen, the higher the cost will be. There are many ways to build a fully operational kitchen using a single shipping container. You have probably already seen one or more yourself. But there are kitchens made of more than a single shipping container, especially if the kitchen will be stationary. Many companies tend to acquire shipping container kitchens to feed their workforces, those can vary in size based on the number of employees they have.
Size of The Shipping Container
Shipping containers come in a few different sizes, and those can be modified to be slightly smaller or bigger. The most common sizes are the 20ft. and 40ft. containers. 20ft. containers are very common to see as kitchens, but based on the requirements of the kitchen, it’s not at all odd to see 40ft. modified containers.
Used or New Shipping Containers
Used shipping containers are always cheaper than new ones, and modifying them is the same. Used shipping containers are very often modified into other things, but some people have some reservations about choosing used shipping containers as kitchens, since there is no practical way to be certain of what each container used to contain, and whether they have had any lingering effects on the shipping container and if it’s safe to prepare food in them.
That being said, most used containers are safe to modify into kitchens, since they are thoroughly checked by modification companies like Green Box Containers.
The Amount of Modification/Tools Installed
Some shipping container kitchens are pretty simple. They contain a few tables for work and use an external source for powering their tools. Some other are anything but simple. There could be generator sets to provide power for the shipping container kitchens, there could be intricate tools for specific types of food installed in the container. There could be certain designs which would require hydraulic jacks or other mechanisms to operate properly. There is a lot of versatility when it comes to shipping container kitchens, and needless to say, any little detail can affect the cost.
