Everything Else You Need For The Perfect Storage Solution

Why Container Accessories?

At A American Container we are serious about providing “on-demand” storage to meet your needs. That means providing a wide range of shipping container accessories to help you get the most from your container investment. From paint, to security, to shelving, we are ready to make sure your portable storage solution is just the way you want it.


Adding paint is an excellent way to improve the look and life of your container. We use environmentally friendly paint that will last for years to come. When it comes to paint not only is the quality of paint important, but also preparing the surface of the container.

At A American Container we use a 4-step painting process:

  • Each surface is pressure washed to remove both grime and rust.
  • Any rust areas are spot primed with a rust inhibitor.  
  • A marine grade primer is applied to make sure the outer coat adheres to the container.
  • A marine grade outer coat paint is applied with the color of your choice.


  • Standard color is light grey
  • Custom colors available (additional fees apply)


Putting a roof coat on your container will help extend the life of the roof. A American Container uses a white elastomeric roof coating that is thick and lasts several years. White roof coating also helps keep the interior of the container cooler by reflecting the sun’s rays.

  • Helps protect the metal roof from harsh Florida weather
  • Helps keep the container cooler from the sun’s rays
  • Greatly improves the life of the container’s roof
