Use the contact section on an individual contact page, for example, the team section on the about us page and so on. You can use them as many times as you want.

For extra CSS tweaks, to have all the sections full width, with no paddings you need to make some small changes in Elementor for each section and column.

So, go to the Layout tab over here and set the Content Width to full, then head over to the Advanced tab and set the Margin and Padding to zero for the column Element Style. Do this for each section or just simply duplicate the first one and then change the shortcode within.
