A good place to start is to look at their business websites and see if they have any testimonials on display. These will usually only be positive comments, but it is good to see how many comments there are and how up to date they are as well. Of course, the company only wants to publish good things about themselves on their website, so to get impartial opinions you just need to delve a little further. You should be able to find various industry-related forums where you can ask people questions and give opinions on shipping container modifications companies, their products, and their service. You do need to look at these objectively since you can find that some people just like to complain even if they have nothing to complain about! But these used along with testimonials, and some common sense can help to find the right company to deal with.

Designing your Modified Shipping Container

When you have decided on the shipping containers modification company that you are going to go with, then you can get down to getting your container created. You will need to tell the designer what the container is going to be used for and give them a clear list of exact requirements. The experienced engineers and designers will then go away and design a shipping container with the aid of computers to the exact specification that you give. They will re-draw the plans as many times as it takes until you are 100% happy with the plan. Then when approved, your modified shipping container will be custom built and delivered in relatively little time at all, ready to transport or store whatever you  have designed it for.
