Landscaping is a year-round business in the Tampa Bay area. Landscapers need a secure place to store and organize their equipment after a long day in the sun. Enter the shipping container.
The versatile containers can serve as a storage unit for your equipment, as a mobile office, and as a cool place where you can escape the withering heat in between jobs.
Here are some benefits of using a shipping container as a hub for your landscaping company.
Benefits of Storage Containers
A shipping container can be a weather-resistant environment to house the valuable assets of a landscaping company — vehicles, equipment, and documents.
There are multiple uses for a durable steel shipping container, including:
- Storage for lawnmowers, leaf blowers, weed-whackers, ATVs, etc.
- As a file room or office space for business documents
- A climate-controlled breakroom as a hub between jobs
Shipping containers are made of durable steel that will withstand harsh weather and landscape equipment moving in and out with minimal damage.
Storage containers are windproof and watertight. Containers also can stand up to hurricane-force winds.
Suppose you need to move your shipping container — no problem! Due to size and mobility, they can be transported anywhere.
Storing landscaping equipment in a shipping container is an environmentally conscious use of a structure that otherwise would be sitting empty or tossed on a scrap heap. When you rent or purchase a shipping container from A American Container, you are eco-friendly!
Use as a Mini-Office
It might be time-consuming to be driving to your landscape business headquarters constantly. Save time and money by turning a storage container or a section of one into office space.

Take a Test Run
Depending on your needs, you can rent or buy a shipping container from A American Container. To determine the size and best usage, renting a container will allow you to test it out to see if it suits your needs.
Protecting Your Business Assets
Breaking into a shipping container is difficult. To protect your landscaping equipment, A American Container offers multiple locking systems to keep your machinery secure. These include:
DRP Locking System
Our proprietary external lockbox system resists sledgehammers, pry bars, or cable. This locking system is welded to the container and requires a “hockey puck”-style lock.
Cargo Door Lock
This heavy-duty cargo door lock secures both container doors by locking the innermost vertical locking bars together.
Hidden Shackle Hockey Puck Locks
This lock is used in conjunction with our DRP Locking System. Made from high-grade hardened steel, these locks protect against sawing, cutting, or prying.
Also called the warehouse lock, this device has a stainless-steel armor plate on a brass body for protection against corrosion and weather. It is perfect for slim lockboxes on shipping container doors, warehouse doors, and connecting chains.
Cargo Container Modifications
Another positive aspect of a shipping container is that it’s highly customizable. They can be outfitted with shelves, workbenches, pegboards, lighting, air conditioning, and more.
Perhaps you need a roll-up door to drive a lawnmower inside. Do you need shelving to keep your leaf blowers, weed whackers, and other equipment organized? A American Container can modify a shipping container to suit your needs. Best of all, when containers are delivered, they are ready to use!
