  1. Cost Effective

Shipping Containers are gaining in popularity for good reason. For storage and temporary uses, container rentals can range from $67 dollars a month, while leasing a storage unit at a storage center can cost you almost 3x as much for about the same size unit. For construction purposes, using shipping containers can save you mortgage costs, storage and safety costs, tax costs, and repair costs according to howtobuildacontainerhouse.com.
