We recommend placing your container on private property. Depending on how long you plan to use the container or your city’s regulations, you may be asked to obtain a temporary use permit. Oftentimes smaller containers are similar in size to sheds, which may not require any additional permit or approval.

Parking a container in a driveway in a remodel project is typically an allowable use for short-term building and renovation projects. If you plan to use your container long term, you will most likely need to store it out of view, depending on your cities regulations. For example, Seattle shipping containers parked in a public right-of-way will need a specific permit (more information can be found here). The best practice we can recommend is to stay in good communication with your neighbors or neighborhood association regarding the use and placement of the container.  


In order to get an accurate quote and schedule container relocation, it’s important to start by sharing the right details. We will need:
