Rent or Buy Conex Storage Containers at Birkmire

Tammy Birkmire / April 26, 2024

Conex storage containers are shipping containers with a title that stems from a combination of the words, “container” and “express.” Initially, they were developed for military use sending cargo to the front lines, but the modern day sees these containers used for a wide range of applications that require suitable strength and reliable handling. Birkmire offers a range of Conex storage containers for rent, and we accept inquiries about purchasing Conex boxes too.

Conex Basics

A Conex storage container is typically made from corten steel, which is a kind of high-quality corrugated steel. The standard lengths are either 20 feet or 40 feet like most other storage containers, though more uncommon sizes may be available as well. With the standard sizes, however, shipping solutions for these containers are particularly easy, as they are sturdy enough to handle shipment by road, rail, and sea. Conex boxes can even be watertight to keep water and other elements away from the items inside. While this is typically only necessary for boxes that will travel by sea, it can also be helpful when storing items that can be easily damaged by moisture.

Applications of Conex Storage Containers


Quality Conex storage containers can be used for a range of different applications beyond shipping goods overseas as they were initially created for. These containers are particularly adept at storing goods that are perishable or vulnerable to outside elements and moisture. Many businesses require these kinds of storage solutions, and Conex containers make it easy. Additionally, these containers are frequently used for the following:


  • Storage of equipment and tools
  • Temporary storage during house renovations or moving
  • Bulk document storage for businesses
  • Agricultural equipment storage
  • Temporary office space

Short Term and Long Term Solutions

Conex storage containers can be used for both short term and long term applications given their strength and durability. One of the most frequent uses is temporary storage for office supplies during periods in which the office is undergoing renovations or additional construction. These containers can be used to temporarily store office furniture and supplies. In other scenarios, however, a business may have a need for document storage. Physical paper documents are often legally required in some industries, and a Conex storage container can protect documents from moisture and the elements in the long term.

Dock height storage boxes make transferring items simple, as all you have to do is back up the truck right to the box itself. At Birkmire, we offer convenient dock height Conex storage containers that you are free to access whenever you like.
