Our Journey

The idea to sell and rent containers literally came knocking on our doors in the early 2000s.

At the time, we were running a trucking and handling company where we would store and move containers around Western Canada. After years of people stopping in our yard asking if we sold containers, we realized we were missing a huge market."

  1. The first year we sold over 300 containers and coined the name “The Container Guy.” Since then, we have established ourselves as the go-to container guys in Saskatchewan and opened more locations throughout Western Canada.

  2. Then, in 2011, Channing McCorriston won a deal on Dragon’s Den for starting a shipping container modification company. He eventually sold his shares and returned to The Container Guy where he brought his knowledge of container modifications into the businesss

Channing has 10 years of experience modifying shipping containers into offices, mining camps, hazardous materials storage units, & more. Although Channing is an accountant by trade, he has a mind for technical design and a great understanding of metal fabrication, electrical, plumbing, & HVAC code requirements.

His CMA degree and continued professional development courses allow him to lead the design and marketing team from concept to finished product.
