Are you fed up with spending a great deal of your income on housing expenses like mortgage, rent, utilities and such? Then you are in luck, shipping container homes are what you just need.
As its name suggests, shipping container homes are made of shipping containers. As CMG Containers, we acquire used containers in good condition from all around the world. Then we test if the structural integrity and durability of these containers are sound. If they pass our intensive tests and convince us that they can withstand extreme environmental conditions for a very long time, we fix small dentures and scratches on these containers before upcycling them into gorgeous and affordable shipping container homes. In addition to the used containers, we also offer brand new shipping containers which can be turned into cool, stylish homes.
Shipping container homes have gained a significant popularity over time due to being cost efficient and versatile. The cost of building a beautiful and functional container home is only the fraction of the cost of building a traditional, brick and mortar home. Moreover, getting the necessary permits for container homes takes less time and is very straightforward. As a result, you can build your shipping container home in a very short time!
