Even if your actual office floods one day and you need a workspace just for a few days, we’ve got you covered. They can be placed just about anywhere with a level surface, and it’s already recommended to actually not set it directly on the ground and brace it with something to keep it even, so with that we can get the container to sit right in most places. A wooden trailer, for example, will not be able to sit on anything but a completely flat surface unless you want it to twist and risk breaking. Charlotte shipping containers are extremely strong, but you need to be mindful and take good care of them if you want them to last you for the foreseeable future.
