1. Tilt Tray/Roll Off Truck
2. Crane Truck or Hoist Truck
delivery is performed using a Tilt Tray/Roll Off truck and they require
a clear area that is a minimum of 80 feet by 25 feet with hard compact
earth is required to insure delivery. Please keep in mind that the
trucks are 80 feet in length and weigh over 50,000 lbs, so soft, wet or
muddy areas that they would need to drive on is unsuitable for delivery.
(If you can drive on the area with a standard compact car, then they
can usually deliver). In situations where there are trees, fences, low
hanging power lines or other obstacles that would impede placement of
the container are present you must get delivery by a Crane Truck.
Be aware of any obstacles to delivery access to your property;
most occasions it is important to know which way the container doors
will face prior to delivery to site. For instance a shipping Container
only has doors at one end, so when loaded on a Tilt Tray Truck the doors
could face the trucks Cabin or towards the trucks tail lights…same
thing applies to a side loader which only unloads from the driver side.
containers require a relatively flat surface to sit on. If there is any
doubt on your part about the delivery method or suitability of your
location the Delivery Service will inspect your location for a minimal
fee prior to your shipping container delivery.
delivery times and dates can be adversely affected by weather, traffic,
scheduling, availability and mechanical failure. Delivery times and
dates are not guaranteed, though we will do our best.
