5 reasons a shipping container works as a mobile office
1. Shipping containers create a convenient working environment
Shipping containers make for a quiet and comfortable work spaces. While you may already have a designated space for your office at home, focusing on your business may be difficult with interruptions and noises from other rooms.
If your boss is having you work from home on a long term basis due to COVID concerns, you can still escape the bedlam of family life by having a mobile office in your garden. Having a completely private office close by, yet still separate from the main home, can help you work in peace and enable you to finish your tasks properly and on time.
Where it comes to building sites and even semi-permanent installations on a workplace yard, the container can provide that essential space for meeting clients, admin and so on.

If security is added in to your mobile office, perhaps with decent locks and remote wifi/cellular CCTV, you can safely leave your IT systems and other high value items inside and allow crooks to try their best, confident they won’t succeed.
5. They can be easily transported
Pretty obvious when it comes to a mobile office, eh? The reason is that with some forethought to design, the mobile office can still sit within the ISO dimensions required for transport on a truck, train or ship. As long as the resultant weight is kept within the 21 tonne limits for a full container, it is possible to crane them onto and off the transport rig with standard equipment. Unless you replaced all the walls with bulletproof glass and kept a mainframe computer inside you’d do well to exceed the maximum gross weight.
