Here at Alpha-Container, it’s no secret we love shipping containers. We love them so much we built our office out of them. If you’re thinking of converting a shipping container into a home, office, site shed, pop-up shop, chill out space or something completely out of the box we’re here to help. Container space can turn your plans and design into reality.

We’re flexible with our modifications and can do as little or as much as you need. Handy if you’re on a budget! We’ll cut, weld and frame to your specifications doing all the hard preparation work for you. Whatever your requirements may be why not pop by our office and speak to one of our team who’ll work closely with you to find a solution that brings your design to life.

Tip: We’re open Saturday mornings

Roller Door

Ideal if you require quick and easy access. Perfect for those with hand injuries and may struggle with opening original doors. We can match any colour bond range.

Personal Access Door

Semi solid metal clad door pre hung into a frame and powder coated. Locked and opened from either inside or out it can be fitted anywhere on the container.

Sliding Doors

Sliding door frames are cut, welded and fitted to your specifications. Let us know the sizes and we do the rest.

Custom Paint

If you’re after something specific just provide us with the colour code and away we go.


Windows frames are cut and fitted to your specification, so let us know if you have the size already or need help organising.

Lock Boxes

A container lock box covers the padlock on the shipping container door and provides added security from unauthorised entry

Whirly Birds

Installed on the roof of the container, a whirlybird allows natural light to enter the roof space and assists in removing moisture build-up and exhaust hot, trapped air. Highly Recommended.


A vent increases the natural airflow inside the container assisting in reducing the temperature and minimising odours. This aids in prolonging the life of your container and anything stored inside.

Security Grills

Heavy-duty bars can be welded onto the frame protecting your windows and help keep out unwanted intruders.


Shutters aid in protecting your glass window. They also shut out the light and can be fixed with locks for added security.

Container Doors

Original container doors can be inserted anywhere on the container.


Split systems, switches, lighting and caravan plugs can be installed.
