Learn how Storage on Wheels can give your container a new look with shipping container painting and many customized options.

Repainting Shipping Containers

A lot can go into repainting shipping containers. First, we’ll need to wash off all residue and grime. After they have thoroughly dried, we can then inspect them for any rust that may have formed over the years and cosmetic damages such as small dings. Any rust will need to be ground off just before painting, and small dings in the portable storage container will be knocked out. Then, the entire shipping container will be ready for a fresh coat of paint.

At Storage on Wheels, we make sure to keep in mind all shipping container paint specifications. With the use of Direct to Metal (DTM) paint, you can rest assured knowing that your shipping and storage containers will be looking brand new for many years.

Painting your steel shipping containers will give your portable storage containers a better overall appeal. You will be able to blend in your storage containers to your property or utilize them as a marketing tool for your worksites. Repainting shipping containers also adds one more layer of protection between the steel and the elements helping your storage containers last throughout the years.
