What is the difference between container flooring and plywood?

Container flooring is 19 to 21 plies and plywood is 5 plies. The more plies in flooring, the stronger the wood is, and the better able the wood is able to withstand a heavy load as well as tow motor traffic.

Why do corner casting protrude from the bottom and top of a container?

Shipping containers are stacked on top of corner castings. When placing a container on the ground, it is important to place plywood, railroad ties or other items to prevent the corner casting from sticking into the ground. The more the weight of the container is spread out over a larger surface, the less concentrated the weight will be at any one point. What this means to our customers is that the container’s corner castings will be less likely to sink into the ground.

Is it a good idea to store items on the roof of my container?

It is not the roof of the container which is designed to handle weight, it is the corner castings.

What is the floor of a shipping container made of?

A shipping container’s floor is constructed of marine grade plywood or bamboo. “Marine grade” means that the wood has more ply (19 ply or 21 ply) than traditional construction plywood, making a more stable floor that’s less prone to warping. Additionally, container floors are not smooth and have small variations with counter-sunk screw heads. Our 40-foot shipping containers include a built-in trailer hitch tunnel, meaning there’s an approximately-10-foot-long steel plate on the non-door end of a 40-foot container.

How do I open a Storage Container?

A ground-level storage container will have two doors at one end. You will see that across these doors are four vertical metal rods which extend from the top all the way to the bottom of the unit’s face. To open a storage container, raise the latch above the handle on the right-side door. Next, raise the handle and move it from right to left. This step will unhinge the locking mechanisms on the top and bottom portions of the door. Finally, open the right-side door by pulling the metal rod out towards you. Repeat the same process with the left-side door.

How much room do I need to fit a Storage Container or Office Container on my site?

Our Storage Containers come in 40-foot, 20-foot and 10-foot 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-foot containers and 10-foot containers are delivered on a straight, one-piece flatbed truck that is approximately 28 feet long, so the truck would need a relatively straight shot of around 50 feet in order to drop a 20-foot container and about 40 feet for a 10-foot container. The 40-foot 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-foot container. Also, because of the configuration of the delivery vehicle, the site needs a fairly wide driveway in order to enter the property.

While both a spring ride trailer and an air ride trailer offer a cushion between the axle and the body of the trailer, there are some differences.

Spring ride: The front and rear axles of the trailer are connected with leaf springs between the front and rear axle. Most fleets operate using spring ride trailers. Spring ride suspensions are constructed of multiple layers of flexible steel strips in one assembly or pack. They require less maintenance on the undercarriage of the trailer and provide a smooth ride.

Air ride: An air ride trailer has an airbag suspension between the axle and the body of the trailer. Air ride trailers have a softer ride than a spring ride trailer. The disadvantages of an air ride trailer are that the airbags are much more likely to break, and they have a higher overall operational cost.

Office Trailers

An Office Trailer is a mobile office unit that sits off the ground on wheels. It is best suited in a situation where the water table is high. OSHA-approved stairs are provided to walk into the mobile office, which helps keep the unit clean. An office trailer can be moved with a 2-5/16-inch ball hitch.

Office-Trailers-FAQ-Diagram FAQ


Office Containers

An Office Container is a mobile office that sits directly on the ground and is built from an ISO steel shipping container, making it very durable and secure. Eagle Leasing’s ground-level office (GLO) is equipped with a pebbled fiberglass interior, steel doors and other premium features. Unlike office trailers, office containers do not require stairs to access the interior, and there is no block and leveling or tiedowns necessary to secure the unit. All our office containers feature an external GFI (ground fault circuit interrupter) for protection against electrical shocks.office-container-faq-diagram FAQ

When hooking up an Office Container or Office Trailer what is the correct voltage?

If the incoming voltage is less than 216V, the primary power tap at the transformer must be changed from the “240V” spade to the “208V” spade. Failure to do so will cause a control voltage of 18V or less, which will lead to erratic (or no) operation in the contactors and relays. It will also cause thermostat failure. Please have an electrician wire your Office Container or Office Trailer to ensure safe and proper electrical hookup.

How much room do I need to fit a Storage Container or Office Container on my site?

Our Storage Containers come in 40-foot, 20-foot and 10-foot 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-foot containers and 10-foot containers are delivered on a straight, one-piece flatbed truck that is approximately 28 feet long, so the truck would need a relatively straight shot of around 50 feet in order to drop a 20-foot container and about 40 feet for a 10-foot container. The 40-foot 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-foot container. Also, because of the configuration of the delivery vehicle, the site needs a fairly wide driveway in order to enter the property.
