Container Conversions

Taking advantage of the strength, durability and mobility of marine steel containers, Big Box has customised containers to create schools, libraries, office spaces, shops, homes and more.

Benefits of container customisation

Strong, secure and highly customisable, steel containers provide ideal building structures for a wide range of purposes. Customised steel containers are:

  • Affordable: no need to lay foundations or pay for months of construction work. The cost per square meter of a customised steel container is significantly lower than the cost of constructing a building.
  • Strong and secure: made from lasting, weather-resistant steel, a converted container is designed to provide superior strength and security.
  • Portable: a container can easily be moved from one location to another.

How it works


All container conversions are done at Big Box Containers, prior to delivery and installation. This ensures you don’t have to deal with the noise and disruption associated with having work teams operating on your business premises.

We’ll build a container exactly to your specifications, customising features like windows and doors, air conditioning, electrical wiring and paint colours.

Once your container is ready, our fleet will deliver it to any premises in South African or elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. The team will also install the container and ensure that it’s functioning according to your requirements.

Please note that we do not design and build container homes, but instead assist with customizing containers according to architectural or draftsman plans submitted to us.
