Once again thankyou NormandC for your tips and advice.

I'm thinking maybe I can copy certain elements, like you advised, so not to reinvent the wheel and edit those, and then create a new model for most of the container.

I'm not from a drafting or design background, never having used solidworks. I didn't know that the default "up" direction in that is the Y axis, seems weird to me, it has been a while but I was taught default axis for up/down was the Z axis.
