How Much Does a Shipping Container Project Cost?

We receive multiple inquiries every day about various container project ideas.  The most common question we get is “How much will my shipping container project cost me?”  From the few pieces of basic information we are provided about the project plan it’s almost impossible for us to price out on the spot.  The cost varies for each project we create due to the customization that goes into it.  Here are the three most important factors that go into the pricing.

Design – We do charge for creating your customized floor plans and 3d renders.  Once we continue on to the building stage of your project this fee is included in the end price.  If you decide not to go through with the project, whatever designs we have created are obviously yours to keep and use in the future when you are ready to build your project with MODS or another company.

Time – Shipping container structures are built much quicker than traditional stick built structures, but not all projects take the same amount of time to complete. It depends on the size of the project, the materials you have chosen to use, the amount of fabrication, and if we are completely furnishing it or not.

Shipping & Delivery – The price of shipping depends not only on the distance of the trip, but also the number of containers we are shipping.  Another factor that is considered is the on-site set up.  How much works needs to be done on-site?  How many laborers will the work take to complete?
