Please make Sure Your Site is Prepared for Delivery and be Ready for Delivery When the Driver Arrives
Please make sure, the site it ready and there is enough room for the diver to safely deliver, If there is not enough room or the site is not ready, the customer may still be charged a dry run fee. We outsource all deliveries to professional delivery companies with years of experience.
How We Deliver
Tilt Bed / Roll Off
The container will arrive on a trailer that will tilt back and place the edge of the container on the ground. The trailer will pull away and allow the container to slide, or roll, off onto the ground
Door Orientation is very important before scheduling a delivery.Door orientation refers to the direction the doors should face when loaded on the trailer.
Doors to Back
The doors will face the back of the truck and will be the last thing off the trailer as it is delivered. For example if using doors forward would be that you are placing your container up against a fence, barn, or other structure.
Doors to the Cab
The doors will face away from the truck and will be the first thing off the trailer as it is delivered.
The Delivery Truck Needs Some Space
In order to ensure everyone’s safety, please ensure there is adequate space for delivery and you have a safe environment for the driver. All of our haulers put safety first, and if we can’t safely deliver at your site we won’t, but you’ll still be on the hook for trucking charges. Nobody wants that, so please make safety a priority and ensure you have adequate space for delivery.
Make Sure the Truck Can Access Your Delivery Site
In addition to straight away backing space, the truck also needs to be able to maneuver into position at your delivery site. Because 40ft shipping containers are delivered on a tractor-trailer combination, we’ll need extra space to make the turn off the road into your delivery site.
Please note, if we cannot safely deliver, you will still be charged for trucking (you’re always welcome to Contact us if you’re unsure about your delivery site).
Keep Your Container Out of Standing Water
In order to support heavy loads while in transit, intermodal shipping containers have steel cross-members underneath the wood floors. The cross-members are strong enough to withstand some rust, but if you set your container directly on top of an area where water will pool after a storm that steel underneath the floor with eventually fail. Leaving you with a softening floor after only a few years on the ground. Please make sure to keep your cross-members out of water by having wood blocks, railroad ties, etc. ready for the driver at delivery.
Make Sure the Doors are Level
The most common issue after delivery is that the doors don’t open and close easily. Even though containers are all steel, if they are on uneven surfaces or loaded heavy to one side, they can twist just slightly enough for the doors not to line up properly and be very difficult to open and close. The best solution is to place wood blocks under the door frame (and ideally the length of the container). This will ensure your doors line up properly and open/close smoothly.
