Obtaining a 40ft shipping container isn’t as easy as it seems.


Designing unique and simple solutions to complex problems has always been one of David Chambler’s strongest attributes. Like most General Contractors, the founder of Contemporary Cargo Designs has always enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together. He knew with his construction background and exceptional common sense, he could make a unique, functional, and structurally sound space to fulfill his growing need of storage.  Getting frustrated with the process of finding a storage container, he thought he could simplify it for others and with that and the support of his wife Nancy, they decided to start their own storage container company.

At the beginning, they started small by just creating simple storage solutions for individuals that didn’t want to go through the construction process and needed a solution quickly, but since Nancy has and eye for style and enjoys decorating, they decided they would start creating man caves and she sheds which laid the foundation for what was about to become a successful business.
