FAQ

General

What is the difference between a storage trailer and a storage container?

While a Storage trailer sits 52″ off the ground, can be brought to a loading dock and moved on-site, a portable storage container is ground level providing the ability to walk right in. Neither 10′, 20′ or 40′ Containers cannot be moved while loaded.

What is the difference between a storage trailer and road trailer?

A storage trailer is transported by Eagle Leasing to the customer’s site. Although a storage trailer can be moved from loading dock to loading dock and anywhere else onsite, a storage trailer cannot be used to transport goods over the road. Road trailers can be used as storage on site as well to transport cargo to any location within the continental United States.

What is the difference between an Office Trailer and an Office Container?

Although both a mobile office trailer and a ground-level office (GLO) are used as an office during construction and are a great way to add office space on-site, they have some differences. An office trailer is on wheels and can be transported from location to location using a tractor-trailer or an authorized vehicle with a ball hitch lock. An office container is made out of a steel ISO shipping container and provides a rugged exterior for an additional level of security. An office container can be moved with an Eagle Leasing delivery vehicle or lifted on with a forklift.

Do shipping containers have titles?

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

Can your containers be shipped overseas?

It depends.  Containers for lease do not have a proper maritime seal and are therefore not certified for overseas use.  We do have a select number of containers that are certified for overseas use that are available for sale.

Can we certify a container you own for overseas use?

Yes.  We have a licensed container inspector on staff that can inspect and certify your shipping container for overseas use.

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.

Can storage containers be moved loaded?

No. Once a storage container is loaded it cannot be moved. The winch of the delivery trucks can only pickup up the weight of an empty container.

How is a storage container delivered?

Eagle Leasing delivers a storage container to your site on a tilt bed trailer. 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. The driver will need to pull straight out from under the container. Watch the video to see our fast and easy delivery process.

Is there any site preparation necessary?

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.

What is the difference between e-track and logistic posts?

While e-track and logistic posts are both used to secure cargo to road trailers and prevent the cargo from shifting during transit, there are some notable differences.

 

E-track is run horizontally across a trailer equidistant on both sides and can be used to secure the cargo in the exact horizontal location. Although Eagle Leasing does not charge for e-track which is already installed, we can install 1 to 3 rows for a customer.

 

Logistic posts have logistics track built into the equidistant posts of a trailer. Since logistic posts are used as part of the construction of a road trailer, cargo is secured by the strength of the trailer. The disadvantage of logistic posts is that the customer is not able to secure the cargo to the exact horizontal location of a road trailer.

Accessories

Do the 13lb Eagle locks come with keys?

Most of the time the Eagle lock comes equipped with two keys. If a customer requires a combination lock that option is available.

The Swing door Eagle Lock weighs 13lbs and provides protection against unauthorized entry. An overhead door Eagle Trailer Lock slips over the overhead door and offers reassurance against theft of the trailer contents.

What is the difference container shelving and container pipe rack?

While both pipe rack and shelving in containers are an excellent way to keep your container organized and preserve floor space, they serve two separate purposes. Container shelving is comprised of 3 levels. The Shelving inside the container is best used to organize boxes and parts. Pipe racks have 4 levels of angled steel. These are perfect for storing pipe, electrical lines, conduit, and other items you wish to hold in place.

What is the difference between a king pin lock and a glad hand lock?

A king Pin lock fits over a trailer’s kingpin and prevents an unauthorized tractor from pulling up to your trailer and driving away. A glad hand lock slips over a trailer’s glad hands and seals the airlines to prevent an authorized company from moving the trailer. We recommend using both locks to provide an additional level of security against the theft of road and storage trailers.
