How Much Does a Shipping Container Workshop Cost?

Updated: Oct 24, 2022

Shipping container workshops are amazing solutions for a wide range of situations. They offer fully functional workplaces which are completely familiar to their staff and can be moved around to the location where they are needed. Many businesses and professionals are already using shipping container workshops, and new ones are built and delivered everyday since they have been tried and proven in practical environments.

A shipping container workshop can be exactly what its owners require. The tools installed in it, the workspaces designed, and the storages, plus all the facilities which are required to run everything smoothly can be designed in a tailor-made fashion.

How Much Does a Shipping Container Workshop Cost?

Shipping container workshops come in very different shapes and sizes. Each quality and detail about them depend on its very specific purpose, and as such, their prices can vary greatly. Here are some of the factors which can affect the cost of a shipping container workshop.

What Determines The Cost of a Shipping Container Workshop

Its Size

Shipping containers come in a few different sizes. Generally, there are the two most common sizes of 20 ft. and 40 ft. Those sizes have a few variations as well, and each of them can be suitable or not suitable for specific types of use. Some workshops require bigger storage spaces, some might require bigger workspaces, and since there is more space to spare in 40 ft. containers, they might be the go-to option for the uses which require more space.

Some other types of workshops do not require that big a space and 20 ft. containers could be sufficient for their needs and going with bigger options would just be added cost for more hinderance. Obviously, the bigger the container, the more it will cost.

New or Used Container

There are many used shipping containers in each port, waiting to be used again. Many people choose to modify used containers instead of new ones for a few different reasons. The most obvious one is that a used container is cheaper than a new one. The difference in price depends on the condition of the used shipping container, and a few other matters such as the manufacturing companies. If you have environmental concerns, it’s always better to go with used containers, since modifying them would be considered recycling material.

The Tools Installed

Each shipping container workshop is built to address a certain type of requirement. Professionals of different specialties require different tools to be installed in their respective workshops, and in many cases, it’s better to install those tools during the modification process of the shipping container.

Some tools are too large to just put inside a shipping container workshop after it’s been delivered. Not only they might not be safe (both for people who operate them and to other tools and spaces inside the workshop) they also might require a certain amount of space to be operated. The price of those types of tools and the amount of modification required to fix them can affect the cost of a shipping container workshop.

Some people just require a simple workspace. A few fixed tables and storages to keep tools in would suffice. Others might require more. Some people tend to spend a lot of hours inside their shipping container workshops, for them, air conditioning units and other means of comfort are a necessity.

Some people might require minimal electrical wiring only for lighting, others might require more sophisticated electrical work. Some types of workshops require plumbing systems, which come with great variations and some are more intricate than others. Some workshops need to come with their own power supply. Each of these details can greatly affect the cost of a shipping container workshop.

The Amount of Modification

This might seem basic, but it will affect the cost of a shipping container workshop nevertheless. A shipping container workshop might not require many specific tools to be installed in it, but it might require very intricate design for specific tools or specific workstations. Some certain types of workshops require more details to be taken care of and more work to be done during the modification process than others, and that also can show its effects on the price tag.
