How much space is required for delivery?

Containers are delivered on a tilt bed truck or flatbed truck. On tilt bed trucks 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.

Time Allocation

In most cases, it will take 30 minutes or less to deliver your container once on-site. Drivers often deliver multiple containers in a day. If the delivery time exceeds one hour, then other deliveries have to be delayed or rescheduled.

Is a permit required to place a storage ontainer on your property?

Each city or county have their own regulations! We recommend that you contact your local municipal authority to confirm. Most cities and counties do not require a permit. But it is your responsibility to investigate and arrange for any required permits or fees associated with the placement of the container.
