We need a surface that is fairly level, smooth, and firm. We prefer to deliver on cement, pavement, asphalt, or gravel but we can deliver on dirt or grass as long as it is not soft or wet. If ground conditions at your location are soft, you may want to consider 2×10, 4×4 or 6×6 hard wood timbers to place under the unit to mitigate sinking into soft ground.

The driver will back into the area, tilt the bed about 15 feet in the air, then the storage container will slide off the trailer onto the ground.

How much room do I need to fit a container on my site?

Our containers come in 40′, 20’ Containers and 10’ lengths. They are delivered on flatbed vehicles where the container slides off like a dumpster. The side with the doors can face either way on the delivery vehicle. The 20’ containers and 10’ containers are delivered on a straight, one-piece flatbed truck that is approximately 28’ long so the truck would need a relatively straight shot of around 50’ in order to drop a 20’ container and about 40’ for a 10’ container. The 40’ storage container is delivered on a tractor-trailer combo unit that is approximately 70’ feet long. This vehicle would need about 100’ feet of a straight shot to deliver a 40’ container. Also, because of the configuration of the delivery vehicle the site needs a fairly wide driveway in order to enter the property.

Containers are considered a byproduct of trade, they are not titled.
