What Modifications Does A American Container Offer? 


Whatever you dream, we can help make it a reality. Let us help you think outside the box with our extensive range of custom modifications:  

Custom Conversions 


Imagine having a tailored space that perfectly fits your needs. Whether you’re looking to set up a new retail operation, a mobile office, or even a fully functional concession stand, we have you covered. Our expert modification team specializes in transforming standard steel cargo containers into unique, customized solutions for your company.  



Windows are an excellent addition to your container, providing a cost-effective solution for bringing natural light into your space. We prioritize durability and longevity by using high-quality windows and frames. Each window is framed in robust 2” x 4” steel tubing, ensuring it can withstand the test of time, and depending on your design and needs, larger frames can also be accommodated.  


Our standard window size is 35” x 35”, but don’t worry if you have unique requirements; custom sizes are available to fit your specific needs. Security is another aspect we take seriously. You have the option to add ½ inch steel square safety bars for an extra layer of protection.

Entry Doors 


Your shipping container comes standard with cargo doors on one end. If you’re looking for an additional entry point, adding a steel commercial door or two can make accessing your items much easier.  


Plus, we offer roll-up door modifications. Roll-up doors provide easy side access or can replace the container’s cargo doors entirely. These doors are available in several sizes: 6’, 8’, 10’, 12’, and up to 16’ wide.  


Constructed entirely of steel, they are hurricane-rated and feature lockable sliding clasps that can be operated from both inside and outside. Additionally, each roll-up door is encased in a fully welded frame to reinforce the section of the wall that is removed—something not all companies offer. 




In Florida, HVAC systems are a must for mobile storage or offices. We offer various HVAC solutions to meet your needs:  

  • Through-wall A/C systems are the most common type of A/C unit we install.  
  • Mini-split A/C systems are the most efficient A/C systems on the market, boasting 21+ SEER ratings.  
  • Commercial wall HVAC units, commonly called Leach or Bard units, are available in sizes ranging from 1.5 tons to 5 tons.  

Insulation + Interior Finishing  


We offer both spray foam and fiberglass insulation, ensuring that your steel container stays comfortable in any weather. Our solutions are designed to provide effective thermal regulation and energy efficiency.  


Our insulation modifications include:  

  • Spray Foam Insulation: Provides a seamless barrier and excellent temperature control. 
  • Fiberglass Insulation: Offers a cost-effective and reliable option for maintaining a stable interior climate. 
  • Interior Finish: Completes the insulation process by providing a polished and clean look inside your container mod. 


Combining advanced insulation techniques with a quality interior finish, we ensure your space is not only well-protected but also aesthetically pleasing. 




We understand how crucial proper ventilation is for your storage or workspace solutions. Our lateral and square vents ensure that air circulates efficiently within your cargo container, preventing issues like moisture buildup and ensuring a comfortable environment.  


Whether you’re looking to store sensitive items or create a livable space, our ventilation solutions can be customized to meet your specific needs, providing an added layer of utility and comfort. 


Electrical & Lighting 


We can install a custom electrical setup, or you can choose from one of our electrical packages. We can install: 

  • Custom load centers 
  • Outlets 
  • Overhead lighting 
  • Floodlights 
  • Porch lights

Almost all of our shipping containers come with 1 1/8” thick marine-grade plywood that is specially made for the shipping container industry. Sometimes, our clients want to finish their steel containers with different flooring.  


We offer: 

  • Painted: Painting is often the go-to solution for many. It offers durability and cost-efficiency. Plus, we can use the color of your choice.  
  • Diamond Plate Steel or Aluminum: Need something stronger? We can install 3/16” diamond plate sheets that are welded along the seams and sides.  
  • Vinyl Flooring: Vinyl floor covering is a seamless sheet that covers the entire floor. It’s oil-resistant, fire-retardant, and easy to clean, making it a great choice for a durable, easy-to-maintain floor. 


Whatever your flooring needs, we have a solution to help enhance the functionality and longevity of your shipping container.
