Stacked Shipping Containers: A Great Storage Solution
Shipping containers (also called ISO containers) represent one of the most flexible pieces of equipment. Not only do they provide fantastic long- or short-term storage for everything from retail merchandise to building components and even computer systems — but you also have options for what you store and how you store it. Stacked shipping containers allow you to add containers vertically to maximize your storage space — learn more about this solution and how it can work for your business.
At TP Trailers & Truck Equipment, we’re your headquarters for storage containers for sale and for rent. In addition to our large inventory of new and used units, we can also customize the interior and exterior of containers to fit our clients’ exact needs.

What to Know About ISO Container Stacking
In certain facilities and on construction sites, sometimes the allotted amount of storage space is limited — often to the size of a single 8’x20’ or 8’x40’ container. When you need to maximize your storage without increasing your footprint, ISO container stacking is the best way to accomplish it. We’re profiling a few key things to know about this solution.
First of all, stacking shipping containers is completely safe. We secure the containers with twist locks at each of the corners. These locks hold the containers together so that they are one unit, which eliminates any concern about the top container falling or toppling.
While ISO container stacking is often done to maximize storage space, the stacked containers can have different uses as well. You have the ability to stack two mobile offices, two unfinished storage containers, or one office and one storage space.
As is the case with any containers you buy from TP Trailers & Truck Equipment, stacked shipping containers come with a range of custom options and accessories. When building an office, you have access to electricity, lighting, climate control, desks, filing cabinets, finished floors and walls, and much more. Dedicated storage containers often come with specialty shelving, insulation, added doors, added windows, ventilation, lighting, among other options. For two-story shipping containers, an access staircase will need to be added to make the top container easily accessible.
The price to buy stacked shipping containers is determined by the size of the containers you’re stacking and the customizations that you want made to each unit. To get your price, reach out to our team and tell us what you need!
One Other Note about Two-Story Shipping Containers
While shopping for cheap containers online is always a big risk and we don’t recommend it, for two-story shipping containers, that’s definitely not an option. Since there are more steps and more custom options, you need to work with an experienced company that has knowledge about both building and delivering these units.
Our team has decades of experience working with steel containers, and we can confidently handle the challenges that come from ISO container stacking. In addition, our in-house fabrication shop is often able to perform the custom touches you need faster and more affordably than a competitor. Simply put, all containers are important equipment — and two-story shipping containers require much more experience to get right.
