Used shipping containers could be the quick, easy and affordable answer to all your school’s extra storage needs…plus a whole lot more!

Containers First’s super-strong and lockable shipping containers are perfect for storing all those things you’re running out of space for at your school:

• Bulky student records
• Theatre department props
• Woodworking classes’ timber and paints
• Maintenance tools and chemicals
• Extra library books or textbooks
• Excess school furniture
• Anything you want to keep safe and secure!

Instead of hiring an off-site storage unit, you could have your very own secure storage right on your school grounds that can be accessed quickly and easily anytime. And Containers First can add any accessories you need such as shelving, lighting, doors, windows, insulation, climate control, internet wiring, and much more!

• A botanical garden learning centre
• A portable demonstration kitchen for cooking classes
• Anything you can imagine, Containers First can create!

Every Containers First corrugated steel cargo container we offer has been refurbished to our high standards, certified to be structurally sound, and guaranteed windproof, waterproof and vermin proof. Our containers will provide your school with many years of trouble-free use with minimal maintenance.
Here’s just a sample of what we can do…take a look at the Taste Mobile Kitchen we created for The Benevolent Society and Banksia Road Public School.

We’ll Paint It –Or You Can
Make It A School Art Project

If “marine green” is not your favourite colour – we can paint your container in the ColorBond® colour you choose that will stand up beautifully to the Aussie elements. Or you can let student’s paint the exterior with your school’s name, mascot, or whatever design you choose. We’ll help you select the right paints, and advise you on how to best apply them.


Need To Move It? No problem!

Our shipping containers are simple to move to a different location at your school using a standard forklift. Greater distances are no problem either, we’ll be happy to load it on a truck and take it wherever it needs to go.
