Containers Delivered to Your Door in 5-10 Business Days.
After completing purchasing your container, the next step is to prep your site for delivery. On this page, we have provided you with some requirements and recommendations to help make the delivery of your container go as smooth and quick as possible. Knowing what conditions need to be met ahead of time will streamline the delivery process. Letting our team know of any adverse conditions before delivery will help us to coordinate better with the delivery company.
The most common shipping method of containers is the flat bed tilt trailer. These trucks with tilting trailers will maneuver the container into place and have the container roll off the tilted bed. The all in one tilt bed truck is used for 20’ shipping container deliveries and will need at least 60’ of straight line clearance to safely complete delivery. A longer tilt bed trailer pulled by a truck is the method used for the 40’ container. This type of truck will need about 100’ of straight line clearance for a safe delivery. Make sure to have an anchor point available for the container to be chained to so that it can roll off the tilt trailer as the driver pulls away.
Please let our team know beforehand, which way you would like the doors to be facing when the container is offloaded. You don’t want to get the container to your location and find out that when the container rolls off the trailer, the doors will be facing a direction that will be blocking them from being used. Let us know if you want “doors forward” or “doors to the rear”. Doors forward mean the doors will be the last thing to roll off the trailer and doors to the rear mean they will be the first thing rolling off the trailer. You would want doors forward if you are placing the container up against something such as another structure, fence or barn.
