shipping container solutions in Yakima
Growers and farmers. Processors and distributors. Manufacturers and retailers. Businesses in Yakima’s key industries, from agriculture to aerospace, have specialized storage requirements—and they need a resource they can trust to help meet those needs.
Shipping containers offer a variety of benefits for these businesses, including durability, portability, refrigeration options, and more. They also can be great for other businesses, and even homeowners who want robust space for a shop or shed.
With an office and yard located in Yakima, Mountain Container has a selection of new and used shipping containers right here, ready to rent or purchase at competitive prices. And thanks to our Hammar trailer system—one of the few in the region—delivery and pickup is a breeze.
Explore some of the unique uses for shipping containers below, and then get in touch! You can start the conversation at (509) 505-7662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
AGRICULTURE & COLD STORAGE
Yakima County is one of the top counties in the U.S. for agriculture—and in addition to farmers and growers, that means food processing and distribution companies are big here, too. Cold storage is key for many of these businesses, whether they’re dealing with apples, grapes, or even hops (Yakima is the national leader in growing those, of course). Refrigerated containers are often used in aerospace as well, an industry that continues to grow in this region.
Our “reefer” units are available to rent or purchase; they are excellent for ongoing storage needs, but some customers use them to create additional capacity on an as-needed basis. Weather-tight and rodent-proof, our 20- and 40-foot units have 3-phase 460v 30 amp power requirements (upon request, we can provide 3-phase 230v 50 amp options). And our emergency breakdown line is monitored 24/7 so any issues that arise can be managed quickly.
Standard containers are great for farmers, too—they can be used for secure equipment storage, they’re large enough for ATVs and some tractors, and they’re great for storing hay. (And did we mention they keep rodents and the weather out? Our containers can last up to 30 years in the elements!)
Whether you want a sturdy workshop or you just need a place to store your quads, dirt bikes, kayaks, and other outdoor toys, a shipping container can be a great option—especially compared to those hardware-store sheds. They can be customized with windows, doors, power, even AC for those hot central Washington summers. And they’re built to last, made from strong COR-TEN steel and including marine-quality plywood flooring.
Moving is a lot easier with a shipping container and a Hammar. What’s that? It’s our unique side-loader crane that makes it possible to place empty containers in hard-to-reach places and allows us to safely pick it up once you’ve loaded it—so we can put it on a truck and move it just about wherever you want. (Transportation options and availability can depend on distance and scheduling.) You’ve probably seen similar drop-off and pick-up options, but true shipping containers offer additional strength and security, making them the best option for both residential and business moves.
Containers are great for other businesses and uses, too—such as field offices and storage for construction companies and contractors, protected pedestrian “tunnels” adjacent to building sites, and much more.
