Branded Containers in South Africa

Over the years, people have found multiple clever uses for shipping containers.

Some made eco-homes and mobile offices out of them, while others turned them into pop-up bars and restaurants.

At MegaWorxx, we wanted to show our clients how they can stand out from their competition by using shipping containers for marketing and brand building.

What are branded containers?

Branded containers are essentially shipping containers repurposed for marketing purposes, something an advertising agency like Megaworxx utilizes effectively. They represent a fun way to make consumers interested in your brand. If you use a branded container in South Africa to promote your business at events, people are likely to check it out simply because it’s very different from most other displays.

If you’d like additional help on how to use your branded shipping container, you can get in touch with us and we’ll provide you with more ideas.

Why you should consider branded containers to market your business

Nowadays, you have to be very creative in order to impress consumers and make them remember your brand. People are used to seeing so many different ads, both online and in the real world, on a regular basis that they’re starting to ignore them. That’s why experiential marketing has become so popular in recent years.

One of the main things that makes branded containers in South Africa an excellent experiential marketing tool is that they’re highly customizable. You could alter them in a lot of ways to make them fit your needs. Here are some ways you can customize a branded container from MegaWorxx:

  • Install doors: Create an interesting entrance to the branded container in which you can display your latest products by installing a sliding or roller door.
  • Custom painting: Ideally, you should choose the main colors in your logo when painting your branded container. Another great idea is to hire a graffiti artist to paint the container.
  • Flooring: You can improve the interior of your branded container in South Africa by adding vinyl flooring, carpets, or tiles.
  • Shelving: Do you plan on stocking your products or at least samples in the shipping container so that you can show them to potential customers? There is enough space in a branded shipping container to install shelves and stock many products.
  • Wifi hotspots: Our branded containers can be fitted with a wifi hotspot to facilitate various online features of the campaign or to enable payment in a pop-up retail store.

Ways you can use our branded containers

There are multiple ways you can use a branded container to raise awareness about your brand. You’ll have the creative freedom to customize your branded shipping container in any way you want. In case you’re new to the idea of using shipping containers to promote your business, MegaWorxx can help you determine how to transform them.

We have a lot of experience and knowledge when it comes to using branded containers in South Africa for experiential marketing. Here are some of the ways we recommend you use our branded shipping containers.


  1. Product launches: Branded shipping containers in South Africa can be used to educate consumers about a new product or service that you developed. This is especially recommended if you created a unique product that you can show to both buyers and retailers. Transform your branded container into a showroom and go on the road to get a sense of what people think about your new product.
  2. Pop-up retail stores: Pop-up shops are a great way to increase your sales and spread brand awareness across South Africa. When people see a pop-up store, they feel like they’re missing out on a special offer if they don’t buy anything. This is a great way to encourage spontaneous purchases among customers.
  3. Mobile showrooms: Branded shipping containers represent a type of low-cost mobile showrooms that you can use to attract new customers. Sometimes, the best way to gain loyal customers is to put your products right in front of them.
  4. Product giveaways: You can create a product giveaway each time you visit a different city. Make sure to promote your product giveaways as much as possible on social media to attract large crowds. Customers will be excited when they see your branded shipping container in their city. All you have to do is give away a small number of your products, and you’ll get a huge amount of exposure in return.

The benefits of using branded containers

Consumers want to see authenticity and originality when they encounter a new brand. The next time you attend a trade show or an expo, you could be the main attraction simply by using a branded container available at MegaWorxx. Aside from impressing people in the real world, doing this would give you a huge amount of content you could post online and possibly go viral.

Keep in mind that nearly all of the attendees at a trade show or expo will share content from the event. When they see photos and videos of your stand with a branded container that they clearly remember, they’ll share them to their friends. You could get a lot of local exposure from this, which results in increased sales.

What’s great about branded shipping containers is that they provide you with an easy way to transport your inventory. This can help you cut costs if you’re traveling across the country and visiting various trade shows. On top of that, you can rest assured that your inventory won’t get damaged in the event of heavy rainfall or even strong winds. As an advertising company, branded shipping containers are a much better option than cloth tents.
