Storstac Builds Tesla Container Dealership

(Storstac Inc. Toronto, Canada) Storstac builds Tesla container dealership! When it comes to shipping container modifications Storstac has done and seen it all. From the installation of Toronto’s very first container market, to mobile bars to container buildings, Storstac can modify a container to meet the needs of any application. When we were approached to build a mobile dealership for Tesla we were eager to get started. The project parameters were simple: fit the entire dealership within two 20′ shipping containers. Although this might sound like a simple task, this included packing up the roof, signage and the entire 20′ x 12′ open concept showroom area into the two 20′ shipping containers. Keep in mind that the two 20′ shipping containers featured finished drywall, desks, chairs, computers and showcases for Tesla merchandise. The world of shipping container modification is one filled with a lot of smoke and mirrors. Although there are a number of container modification companies out there, very few have the technical skill, imagination and experience to fabricate a modified container that can meet the strict as-built guidelines and quality standards that a company like Tesla is looking for. Storstac’s owner and president has been modifying containers since 1971 (that’s 45 years of real world experience with container modification). You will be hard pressed to find a company with half as many years experience in this field. Although it was a challenge, we worked tirelessly to get the job done. In the end, we fabricated the Tesla Dealership to fit all of these components within the two 20′ shipping containers. The Tesla container dealership is another way for Tesla to reach its customer base without setting up a bricks-and-mortar stores or rolling out a traditional marketing campaign. Mobile pop up stores are gaining traction in North America and Canada, so if your looking to take your business to the next level, or your looking to expand your current market presence, then maybe a containerized pop up store is where you should be looking.

Storstac: We are Toronto’s Largest, Oldest, Most Experienced container modification company.

Modified Container Office Space

Storstac custom fabricates mobile container office space out of 10′, 20′ and 40′ modified shipping containers. Our mobile office containers are some of the best made container offices in the industry and feature everything you would find in a conventional office space. Our modified container offices are fully insulated and feature a 100amp breaker panel, lights, heaters, air conditioning, wall plugs, phone jacks, two windows, and one man door. Once you step inside one of our modified container offices you will think that you just walked into a traditional brick and mortar building.

The advantages of a Storstac modified container office over a traditional trailer office provided by the other guys are easy to see. Our modified container offices are built within an all steel shipping container or sea can. The advantage of building an office inside of a modified shipping container is that they provide you with a sturdy, all steel structure that will outlast a trailer office multiple times over. Traditionally, trailer offices are made of all wood construction. The all wood construction can cause the trailer to smell and it causes the trailer to be extremely flimsy which significantly shortens the shelf life of the office. The Storstac modified container office is also placed at ground level. The man door is only 6″ off of the ground, which means there are no stairs or steps required to get in and out of the office. This makes winter maintenance very easy and straight forward. Trailer offices always require stairs, and they are usually made of wood. This can cause unnecessary tripping hazards and makes winter maintenance more difficult.

Buy one of our modified container offices that are pre-fabricated, or have one built to your specifications.

Storstac Container Kiosk at The CNE

Storstac is proud to have 3 of our modified container kiosk’s featured in this years (and 2014 & 2013) Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. The Canadian National Exhibition or CNE, is Canada’s largest annual fair. With over 1 million visitors each year, the CNE is home to hundreds of food, drink and gaming vendors that mostly work out of event tents and non permanent structures. A container kiosk is the perfect replacement for these event tents because they are easily to deploy, can handle harsh weather like high winds and rain better then a tent, and are easy to secure during off hours. A container kiosk can be as simple or extravagant as your imagination (and budget) can come up with. From a bare bones container kiosk (like the 1-20′ 1-10′ blue container kiosks below) to the more extravagant “Glow Bar” 20′ container kiosk that features a 20′ fold down wall (also Below), your imagination is your limit when it comes down to design, look and functionality of your retail kiosk. At Storstac we have the experience, expertise, and man power to get the job done, meeting and exceeding the customers expectations. We’ve been modifying containers for 40+ years and have pioneered countless applications utilizing modified shipping containers or sea cans. Want a container kiosk, container showroom, container kitchen or container house…come by our offices and see what Storstac can build for you.

Container Modification Toronto Canada

There might be a number of typical container modification companies located in Toronto that claim this and say that, but Storstac is not your typical container modification company. We are the Oldest, Largest and most experienced container modification company operating in Toronto, The GTA and all of Ontario; and that’s just fact. But what does that really mean? Well, we have been modifying containers and fabricating custom built portable buildings since 1971. Since 1971, Storstac’s president, Vincent Ruggiero, has been responsible for the custom fabrication of thousands (yes thousands) of custom built portable buildings. The fabrication of these custom portable buildings have directly assisted in creating and expanding Canada’s expansive cellular network. In the last few years we have worked with the Scadding Court Community Center to help bring to life Market 707, Toronto’s first and only Container Marketplace. We have worked with billion dollar companies like Tesla, helping them bring Elon Musk’s “secret weapon” (a mobile Tesla dealership built from two shipping containers) to reality. We have built life-saving fire training facilities that range from flash-over simulators to complete, multi-story, multi container fire training complexes. We DO NOT claim to be a multi-national organization with multiple offices located across Canada, the United States and China. We do not take credit for work done by other container modification companies  (common practice within social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). We DO however, take pride in our work. We make sure that our product will stand the test of time, not just ensuring it looks acceptable when it leaves our shop. We have sent our custom modified containers to the Canadian Arctic,the Russian Tundra, American Mid-Western deserts, and everywhere in-between. Our 6+ acre container depot and modification facility is located just minutes away from Sherway Gardens in the West End of Toronto. With over 20 people staffed at our office and in our modification facility, we are simply the largest container modifiers in all of Ontario. Don’t take our word for it though, feel free to stop by and take a look for yourself. Our doors are always open and we welcome anyone and everyone to come pay us a visit to see what Storstac can do for YOU.
