To prepare for a hassle-free delivery, consider these following points:

  • Ensure you have enough space:
    • 12′ Width clearance

      • 75′ – for 1 x 20ft container
      • 120′ – for 1 x 40ft container or 2 x 20ft (moved together)
  • Check the weather conditions
    Weather conditions such as rain or snow can impact delivery. Ensure that the path and container location are dry and firm.
  • Solid, level ground
    Containers need to be delivered on solid, level ground to ensure the doors will open and close properly.
  • Flat delivery site
    It is important that the path leading to the delivery site is a level, flat surface as hills and slopes may cause the tilt body truck to get stuck.

We will deliver on cement, pavement, asphalt, gravel, grass & dirt, provided the surface is not too soft. However, we strongly recommend that you choose a site that is as level as possible.
