Everyone knows what it’s like to have too much stuff and not enough space. But not to worry! With Rent-A-Container’s convenient storage solutions, you’ll be able to find enough storage space in Kansas City to fit all of your belongings – whether that be tools, lawn mowers, or supplies for your business. Rent-A-Container aims to make it easy and affordable to pack your things away and access them as needed.



Kansas City is a lively place, and that extends to its cuisine. There are plenty of unique restaurants and bars in the city that aim to provide their customers with great food and an excellent dining experience – and Kind Food is one of these. Kind Food recently closed its Iron District location, but the restaurant was constructed out of a shipping container and brought its patrons plant-based food sourced locally, making it an excellent example of a sustainable, eco-friendly, and local-friendly business.

Using a storage container like the ones available through Rent-A-Container is a great, sustainable, low cost way to start a restaurant of your own. Since these containers are reusable and require significantly less labor to build than traditional buildings, they are excellent for restaurants like Kind Food that prioritize sustainability and the environment.

Kind Food was not the only shipping container business in Kansas City – not by a long shot. All around it is the Iron District, a group of about a dozen shipping container buildings that host a rotation of local businesses to help them get their feet off the ground. The goal of projects like the Iron District is to provide new and upcoming businesses with a means of establishing themselves without diving straight into purchasing a permanent building for themselves, all while providing easy access to food and services at a reasonable price for blue-collar workers.

Given the Iron District’s popularity, it’s evident that this goal is effective. Shipping containers are generally more affordable than full permanent buildings for businesses, meaning that they’re a safe way for new business owners to launch their businesses before committing to something bigger and more permanent. Containers can be modified to suit specific businesses’ needs, too – if you’re looking for a low-risk way to launch your own business, make sure to consider buying a shipping container from Rent-A-Container to do the job!

Shipping containers have countless practical uses – for shipping, storage, use as homes, sheds, pools, and more. But they can also be used to make artistic statements.

In 2020, Kansas City-based artist Israel Alejandro Garcia Garcia did just that, using a shipping container in order to design an art exhibit documenting the experiences of immigrants at the US-Mexico border. The exhibit, set up inside the shipping container, was meant to travel to various neighborhoods in Kansas City in order to share the stories of the city’s Latinx neighborhoods – a powerful message shared in a powerful way.

Art exhibits like this don’t come around very often, which means that when they do, they’re definitely worth looking into and thinking about. In addition to the many practical uses of shipping containers, the use of one in an exhibit focused on immigration definitely adds an interesting layer of meaning to Garcia’s art.
