How much space is required for delivery?
For a 20' container, you will need approximately 65' of straight clearance. For a 40' container, you will need approximately 125' of straight clearance. The width requirement is approximately 10 feet.
How is the container delivered?
We deliver using a tilt-bed truck and/or a tilt-bed trailer. With the trailer raised, the container slides off the trailer resting on one end. Then, the truck/trailer will need to pull straight out from under the container.
What preparation do I need to do before the container arrives?
All you will need to do is make sure you have a surface that is fairly smooth, level, and firm for the container to sit on. We will put it on cement, pavement, asphalt, gravel, grass, and dirt as long as it is not too soft.
What size containers do you offer?
We carry two different size containers. We offer 20' and 40' containers.
How long will it take to get my container once I order it?
Once ordered, we generally will have the container to you as quick as two days from order, but it could take as long as five days. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule and needs.
Are the containers weather proof?
All containers are completely enclosed and will keep wind, rain, and snow out so that your items stay dry and secure.
What kinds of things are not allowed in portable storage containers?
- Do not pack your propane tank for your gas grill.
- Do not pack any hazardous, noxious, odorous, waste, toxic, explosive, illegal, stolen, poisonous, flammable, acidic, contaminated, unsanitary, or dangerous material in the container. This includes, but is not limited to, gasoline, oil, propane, paint, varnish, paint thinner, insect and rodent poisons.
- Drain gasoline and oil from your lawn mower, chain saw, weed eater, and any other equipment that runs on gas. Disconnect batteries from any equipment.
Can you move the container once it is loaded?
We cannot move loaded containers. We can bring the container to you or you can rent a container and leave it at one of our locations.
What if my container needs repair?
If you are renting the container, we will provide maintenance during the length of your rental period. Just give us a call and we will come to serve your needs.
