Containers can be customized in many ways. We offer a variety of container modifications from doors and windows to venting and lights. Shipping container modifications include painting, security lockboxes, personnel doors, rollup doors, windows, additional venting, mobile office containers and more!


We can install different types of doors & windows in your storage container.

Steel rollup doors commonly come either 6 or 8 feet wide and in different gauges of steel. Steel rollup doors can be installed on the sides of containers or in place of the standard swing doors.

Personnel doors, commonly referred to as man doors, can be used to provide an additional entry/exit for your container. Steel personnel doors are typically 3 feet wide with a lever handle and a deadbolt lock.

Windows provide extra daylight in your steel storage container. Standard windows are 3 feet wide by 3 feet high and are installed with security bars on the outside.


Adding additional venting to your container can reduce condensation and help manage air flow in your steel shipping container.

Louvered Vents

Louver vents can be installed to combat excessive moisture in your container. They are usually installed at opposite ends of the container to maximize air flow.

Turbine Vents

Turbine vents, commonly referred to as “whirly bird” vents, are often seen on the roof of a container. Turbine vents can be installed standalone or in combination with louvered vents on a shipping container.


Paint your shipping container in any color of your choice. Painting modifications are available upon request. Whether a container has some cosmetic blemishes and is in need of a facelift or you simply wish to have customized containers to match your brand, Jake Containers can make it happen.

Our experience with Darrin from Jake Storage Containers was excellent. I admit, I was a little nervous with all the scams out there. Darrin made me feel at ease and made the overall experience awesome! He was very helpful and sent me pictures. He even had it delivered out of state. Very reasonable pricing for both the container and delivery. I would highly recommend Jake Storage Containers and would use them again if we need another container. Thanks Darrin for a great experience and container!!!!!!!

Darrin from Jake Containers made purchasing our container easy and convenient . We needed a storage container for equipment for a college hockey team. I started the process with the intention of it taking a while to price everything out. Darrin provided me with cost comparisons and even advised me that we didn't need to go with a more expensive model for what we were looking for. After placing the order, within a week a truck was there placing our new storage unit behind the rink. Jake Containers and Darrin were excellent from start to finish of the process.

Local depots sell what they have on hand, which often means containers are sold in bad condition:

Dents. Rust. Holes. Floor boards. Door seals & lock rods. Dirt. Graffiti. We’ve seen it all.

Just because a container is used, it doesn’t mean it should have these issues. Watch to see what you can expect.
