With an extensive in-house staff and 90,000 sq ft container modification facility, we're able to deliver consistently high quality and work on multiple projects simultaneously for a fast turnaround.

Other companies don't have the facility, staff or resources to modify shipping containers and will outsource the work to various shops who may not have the special experience or tools needed to modify the right way.

You can rest assured knowing your custom container is safe in our hands. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications through every step of the process.

Renting a moving container from us makes your move much less stressful because you won't have to rush to pack your whole house into a moving truck in one day. Instead, you can take your time packing over the course of a month.

Our ISO shipping containers are weatherproof and come with vault-like security, so you don't have to worry about theft or damage to your belongings.

You won't get that level of security from U-Haul or other moving truck companies.

Renting a storage container at your home keeps your belongings close and gives you convenient 24/7 access, so you're always able to retrieve the contents of your container when you need to.

We know move in and move out dates don't always line up. We can store your packed rental container at our secure facility until your new home is ready.

With our mobile storage containers for rent in Studio City, CA, you can save up to 40% when compared to full-service long-distance movers, while gaining more flexibility in your schedule.

You also get more options to choose from when it comes to size and features, like portable offices with divided rooms for private meetings or office/storage combos for storage and office space in one container. All while costing a fraction of the price of a pod or self-storage facility.

No other company has the breadth and depth of staff and experience that we do when it comes to modifying shipping containers. Our certified welders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and painters have more than 500 years of combined experience in fabricating custom steel containers.

We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

The annual three-day conference, designed to update faculty on the latest in production trends and insights on shaping the future of the entertainment industry, was held at the Television Academy’s renowned North Hollywood campus—the prestigious home base for the industry’s television community.

Co-chaired by Foundation board members Tina Perry, president, OWN Network and OTT Streaming, and Jamila Hunter, executive vice president of programming and development at Freeform, the event offered a wide variety of curriculum-enhancing seminars on the art, science and business of television and provided invaluable information for professors to take back to their classrooms.

During the “Directing for TV” panel discussion at the conference, director / producer Dr. Rachel Raimist (Queen Sugar; The Sex Lives of College Girls) detailed the process of directing episodic television from the first draft of a script through to editing and advised professors on how to best prepare students for the future. “I recommend coming to Los Angeles, working in the industry through internships,” said Raimist. “The No. 1 internship in this business is the Television Academy internship … hands down. My students who have done the internship through this Foundation have excelled.”

“For over 30 years the Foundation has collaborated with industry professionals, creators and top executives to help keep college educators on the cutting edge of the entertainment business so they can provide their students, the next generation of television leaders, with a state-of-the-art education and invaluable insight on obtaining careers in the business,” said Abrego.

Studio City Is About to Get Really, Really Good Coffee, Courtesy of Civil

Highland Park’s Civil Coffee, founded by brothers and Los Angeles natives Alex and Alan Morales, is spreading its wings to the Valley.

Highland Park’s Civil Coffee, founded by brothers and Los Angeles natives Alex and Alan Morales, is spreading its wings to the Valley. This Friday, September 23, the industry-beloved purveyor of espresso drinks and cold brew will open its third location at the ever-growing Sportsmen’s Lodge complex in Studio City, which also houses Sugarfish, HiHo Cheeseburger, and a new outpost of Roberta’s. (Civil opened its second location in Downtown LA earlier this year.)

The 900-square-foot space is modeled after Mexico City open-air cafes and is the first Los Angeles Health Department-approved cafe with a coffee bar and kitchen with an operable storefront. There, chef Mezraim Llanez of ER Bar and Chicas Tacos will be heading up a small kitchen serving breakfast burritos made with Mejorado tortillas, brunch sandwiches, and grab-and-go items like turmeric arroz con leche; longtime partner Sugar Bloom Bakery will supply pastries and viennoiserie. In addition to two daily espresso and drip offerings, the outpost will also feature two Valley-exclusive drinks: a matcha tonic featuring ceremonial-grade Japanese matcha, and the Vanilla Oaty, an oat-milk espresso drink shaken over ice.

This Friday through Sunday, Civil Coffee will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Monday, September 26, it will kick off its regular daily hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A conversation about gentrification

Yesterday, L.A. Taco published a balanced deep-dive into the gentrification of Highland Park and its implications for both longtime residents and business owners. Kamren Curiel writes, “While everyone feels differently about gentrification, depending on their political views and individual privileges, the undeniable problem is that not everyone benefits equally from increased investment and sudden media and developer interest in a neighborhood.”

A Hollywood classic returns

Thrillist brings news of the reopening of Cinegrill at the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. The Old Hollywood-style theater and restaurant, which originally opened in 1936 and features a supper club-inspired menu of food and classic cocktails, will kick off its new iteration with a screening of Casablanca on September 21.

Keith Corbin chats with Roy Choi

This Thursday, September 22, Alta Adams chef-owner and author of the new memoir California Soul: An American Epic of Cooking and Survival Keith Corbin will sit down for a conversation with acclaimed chef and author Roy Choi at the California African American Museum. RSVP for the event here.

That’s a lot of nachos

This Sunday at Smorgasburg, Paramount+ will attempt to break the world record for the largest plate of nachos to celebrate the return of Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head to the streaming service. The current Guinness World Record™ stands at 4,689 pounds, set in 2012 by the University of Kansas, while Las Cruces unofficially set the world record for the largest serving of nachos, weighing in at 5,039 pounds and measuring 110 feet long, in 2019.

The Beavis and Butt-Head nacho platter will attempt to break both records and will be made with chips, jalapeños, beans, and cheese. Once the record is broken, nachos will be distributed for free to Smorgasburg attendees — and any nachos not eaten by 4 p.m. will find a home with one of seven partnering organizations that serve the Los Angeles community (LA Mission, Hollywood Food Coalition, Food Finders, My Friend’s Place, Seeds of Hope, The Midnight Mission, and the LAX Food Pantry).
