‍Install

What foundations and site preparation are required to install my shipping container kitchen?

Permitting

Yes, all our shipping container kitchens are state-approved. For your local building permit, we provide all the required engineering plans and documents to apply for it.

Shipping and delivery

Where do you ship your shipping container kitchen?

Our shipping container kitchens can be shipped and delivered anywhere in the USA and in the world. Please connect with our sales team for more details.

Maintenance

How do I maintain my shipping container kitchen?

Over years of use, smalls patches of rust may appear on the exterior. The only time rust may become more than a cosmetic issue is if it sits untreated for many years. Once a year, do a full exterior inspection. If you find rust, particularly on the roof, proactively sand off the patch, paint it with a rust inhibitor, and then coat it with the original color.

How long can I expect my shipping container kitchen to last?

Your container kitchen should last for decades (and perhaps indefinitely with proper maintenance). Because shipping containers are made of corten steel, a material formulated to withstand long journeys at sea, they’re exceptionally resistant to harsh weather.

ContekPro also builds its container kitchens in the United States with high-quality materials. Between the steel exterior and high-quality interior finishes, your container kitchen should far outlast trailers made from wood and vinyl.
