Modified containers for every need

There are no limits to the use of modified containers. You can think of using them to create a storage space instead of leasing a warehouse. Or build a sound barrier of containers on a large construction site. Or turn a container into a fully equipped mobile workshop, or an outdoor bar/restaurant or temporary store.
