Ground level office containers offer a nice alternative to traditional office trailers.  Mobile office containers are a convenient solution for temporary or permanent office space.  Ground level office containers can be used as a portable office on a job site and can be easily transported from one location to another. Modify shipping containers for office use today.

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.

Modified shipping container with window & security bars

We have made window modifications at our New Jersey shop for many shipping container offices and storage units. 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

Another way to modify shipping containers is with 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.

Watch & Learn About Container Conditions & Pricing

Don’t buy just any Container

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.
