About Shipping Container Conversions

Melbourne based Shipping Container Converters and custom metal fabricators


Shipping Container Conversions is a custom metal fabrication company based in Melbourne, Australia.

We convert shipping containers into stylish and functional spaces from home offices/studios to spare bedrooms, bunkers and beyond. We work with you to design a space that meets your requirements, style and budget.

We produce quality products using creative design, proper planning and fine craftsmanship. Our focus is on customer satisfaction and we will consult with you throughout the process to ensure 100% satisfaction with the final product. We pride ourselves on the quality of our craftsmanship and our products.

We can convert any space but specialise in turning shipping containers into functional and stylish mobile studios, workshops or office spaces. We use 10, 20 and 40 foot containers to tailor the space to your needs with a focus on space and energy saving techniques. We favour quality recycled materials and use them where ever possible.

We fully guarantee the workmanship on all our containers.

The containers’ structural and welding modifications are fully certified and all electrical work is certified.

Our own workshop includes a converted shipping container and we strongly believe the requirements and style of any professional or personal space can be met by a creatively designed and constructed, converted shipping container.

Some examples of the types of original spaces we create include: kids’ cubby houses, man caves, she sheds, spare rooms/ensuites, cabins and end of world bunkers – basically any type of space you need.

Another added benefit of using shipping containers is that they are not only versatile but mobile!

  • Welding with all conventional welding processes and metals
  • Mechanical design and drafting(CAD)
  • Custom metal fabrication and sculpture
