The Process

To start the process, Vaanmathi and her team purchase second-hand containers and get to work by repairing and waterproofing them. It is important to evaluate the strength and capacity of the container before beginning any conversion.

Then, the startup formulates a plan and strategy for conversion. 

From visual drawings, looking after vastu requirements to designing the interior and fixing the water and electricity supply, everything is done with a very strategic approach.

What sets Container Care apart from other construction companies is Vaanmathi’s in-depth engagement with clients. She connects with them personally and ensures that their needs are met.
