In recent years shipping containers being converted into homes has become an increasingly popular practice. For some people, it allows them to be able to own their own home without any debt. For others it’s about living a minimalist and low waste lifestyle. For others, it’s about the convenience of being able to pick up and move their home anywhere they please. One concern raised with shipping containers is their safety – “are shipping container homes safe?”.


We all want to feel safe and secure in our homes. So naturally, one of the most common questions and biggest concerns for those considering turning a shipping container into a home is its safety. So, are shipping container homes safe? They most definitely can be!
If you were to simply buy a standard shipping container and move your belongings in, this would not be a great option. However, almost no one does this as of course we want all the modern comforts such as a kitchen, toilet, shower and electrical fit out. All of this and so much more can be added to a basic shipping container. When it comes to safety, a regular container can be fortified and modified to better secure it and provide you with better safety and a comfortable living space.
