Delivery / Return / Relocation

How quickly can I get a portable storage container delivered?

Delivery is typically within one (1) business day from receipt of order.

How much space is required for delivery?

Containers are delivered on a tilt bed truck. The driver tilts the bed up, and the container touches the ground. The driver then drives out from under the container. The delivery site needs to allow for 14’ of overhead clearance to accommodate the container on top of the tilt bed trailer. To get out from under the container, the driver needs at least the length of the container and the tilt bed truck, in a straight line. This can be up to 100 feet with a 40’ container. The loaded tilt bed truck requires 12-foot wide clearance. When we arrange delivery of your container, we will ask you what direction the cargo or other doors should face on your site so that we may load it accordingly onto our tilt bed truck.

What preparations will I need to make to my site before receiving my portable storage container?

Containers are suitable to be placed directly on the ground as long as there is sufficient drainage and the site is level. If a container is not level, the doors will be difficult to operate. If your desired location is not level, we can provide a few wooden blocks, and the driver will attempt to make the unit as level as possible.
