Important information you need to know before purchasing a shipping container.
Delivery Preparation Checklist
Make sure your site is prepared for delivery.
Please make sure there is enough space for the truck to make wide turns, get between gates or other obstructions, and safely set up for delivery. Remember, trucks make wide turns.
The delivery truck can weigh as much as 45,000lbs. Soft surfaces such as mud or wet grass can cause the truck to sink and get stuck.
If there is a risk of sinking, the driver may refuse delivery at the site.
The truck will need at least 12 feet in total width, as well as space to maneuver after the box is dropped.
- 75' for 20' containers
- 120' for 40' foot containers
- Additional space to turn and drive away
The truck is 13'6" before it tilts, and can be up to 16' tall at it's peak during delivery, make sure there are no power lines, tree branches, or other obstructions.
40 & 45ft containers use a roll-off truck and need a total of 120 linear feet of space for the container to be dropped off.
10 & 20 foot containers are delivered on a tilt-bed and need an additional 55 feet of space for the truck to deliver. That is 75 linear feet of total space necessary.
Both truck types need clearance from obstacles of 12 feet wide & 13.5 feet high (up to 16ft high when tipped at delivery).
*These measurements need to be confirmed before placing your order.
