Optimize the Delivery and Use of Your Container

Today, we will delve into the essential aspects of container delivery and practical accessories to enhance their utilization.


1. Delivery Method

We utilize a flatbed truck for delivery. This method allows for the container to be lowered by tilting the platform, ensuring efficient delivery without the need for costly additional equipment.

2. Container Orientation

Let us know the desired orientation of the container during delivery – whether you prefer the doors facing towards the cab or the rear of the truck. This detail is crucial for a customized installation to suit your needs.

3. Site Preparation

Clearance Distance: A 20-foot container requires 65 feet of clearance, while a 40-foot container needs 110.

Surface: Ensure the ground is level and free of debris. In winter, clear the designated area of snow.

Supports: Use blocks or shims to elevate the container, promoting air circulation and protecting the underlying surface.

Practical Accessories to Maximize Your Container's Utility

InstaShelf: Easily installable and removable shelves, perfect for organizing items in rented containers.

Magnetic Lights: Plug into a standard outlet and can be magnetically attached to the metal surfaces of the container.

Security Padlocks: A sturdy locking device, housed in a protective box, providing enhanced security against vandalism.

Quick tip for opening Container Doors

First, lift the first handle, then the second, and turn them together to release the door.
