Step-by-Step Container Delivery Process

Here is our easy, step-by-step process of how we deliver our containers. See the videos below for a visual reference on a delivery of a 20 foot and 40 foot container.

CHOOSING DELIVERY AREA

You’ll want to make sure that the area you want your shipping container placed is suitable (level and firm ground, clear of debris, etc).

Delivery Icon for second step of process

BACKING INTO PLACE

Upon arrival, our expert drivers will back into the space where the container is to be placed. The driver will slowly set one end of the container on the ground, pull forward, and gently set the other end of the Box down.

SETTING ON GROUND

If dunnage is required to set the box on, the driver will set these wood blocks down in the correct spots before setting the ends on the ground.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR CONTAINER DELIVERY

Our primary goal is to make the Delivery process… simple! This includes limiting your need to prep.

However, we want to avoid bringing a big shipping container to a site only to discover that we can’t place the container on the ground. Therefore, you need to make sure that you have a suitable place in mind for your shipping container before we arrive.

THE IDEAL CONTAINER DELIVERY SITE:
  1. FIRM GROUND
    The ground must be flat and firm. If your preferred location is on soft ground or is slightly sloped, we recommend bringing in gravel or using lumber blocks to help make the space more container friendly.

  2. OVERHEAD CLEARANCE
    Make sure that there are no low-hanging wires, branches, or anything that might get in the way of delivery. We require at least 15′ of clearance for our trucks to deliver containers.

  3. ROOM TO BACK IN AND PULL FORWARD
    There must be room for the truck to safely pull in off the road, back into place, and then pull forward. 

    A 20ft container requires 70ft of space for the truck, and a 40ft container requires 140ft of space for the truck.

  4. PERMISSION TO DELIVER
    Try to plan for delivery on private property. We sometimes place shipping containers on city streets in front of your home, but we’ll only recommend this option for a short period of time. We prefer to place them on private property to avoid any potential issues. If we do place your shipping container on a city street or other public place, it is always the customer’s responsibility to obtain proper permits
simple box delivered to site

Although we can sometimes deliver on short notice, we typically require at least a 3-days notice to deliver a box according to your ideal delivery date.

All appointments depend upon availability, and three days should give us enough time to fit you in during your preferred times.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CONTAINER DELIVERY

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

If the delivery area is on a bit of a slope, we recommend getting some gravel or several 12-inch 4×6 treated lumber blocks to help get the Box level and get some air-flow underneath the Box.

We do not recommend railroad ties as they are often uneven and we’ve seen a lot of people injure themselves trying to drag them around. Containers are made to carry all of the weight at the corners, so all you need is a block under the corner (the drivers carry some dunnage on the trucks).

  • 20-FOOT CONTAINER: For a 20 foot container, we need 70 feet for the tilt-deck truck to pull forward in a straight line.

     

  • 40-FOOT CONTAINER: For a 40 foot container, we need 140 feet for the truck & trailer to pull forward in a straight line.

Our delivery team runs from 8:00am-4:30pm Monday-Friday. We love it when we have at least 3 days notice, but we will do all that we can to get your delivery done on your ideal day(s).

 

Your Driver will call or text when they are on their way to your place.

There is no need to wait around for us or to take time off work!

You do not need to be there for the delivery or pick-up as long as the delivery area is clear and we have a good idea of where you’d like the Box to be placed. 

Some people leave a cone, lawn-chair, or brightly painted rock where they would like the doors to be placed). 

We can deliver to most addresses in Washington State, Oregon State, and Arizona State. We can also move customers loaded to other states. 

Sometimes for a delivery that is further away from one of our locations, it is more cost-effective for a customer to buy the Box so that they are not paying a round-trip fee to have us come pick up the Box when they are all done.  

Feel free to give us a call to confirm whether we can deliver to your specific address and to schedule your delivery date.

Our drivers are amazing, but there are some times when a site just isn’t suitable, or a customer changes their mind. 

If a customer’s ideal delivery location is not suitable, the driver will do all that they can to place the Box in an alternate nearby location.

We budget for up to 30 minutes at customer site to load or unload, and secure the container. Any additional standby or transport time will be billed at $100 per hour.

Any towing or repair bills resulting from insufficient site conditions will be sent straight through to the customer or delivery contact.

All Deliveries are subject to our Terms & Conditions.

How much Site Prep is needed for Delivering a Container?

To ensure a safe delivery, please make sure the ground is hard-packed gravel or some other improved surface (asphalt, concrete, etc.), there are no low-hanging wires, and you have enough space for the truck to pull forward from the back of the box.

Should I buy extra Blocks or Dunnage?

If the delivery area is on a bit of a slope, we recommend getting some gravel or several 12-inch 4×6 treated lumber blocks to help get the Box level and get some air-flow underneath the Box.

Can the container be set on railroad ties?

We do not recommend railroad ties as they are often uneven and we’ve seen a lot of people injure themselves trying to drag them around. Containers are made to carry all of the weight at the corners, so all you need is a block under the corner (the drivers carry some dunnage on the trucks).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BUYING A CONTAINER

How much do Containers cost?

The price of a Container for Sale depends on a few variables:

What are Containers made of?

ISO Containers (often called Conex Boxes in Industrial or Military settings) are made of thick Corten steel, with wood floor and heavy rubber door gaskets. They are built for storage, built to be moved, and built to last.

Are Container Floors safe?

Practically every good, food, and textile makes its way around the world in a Shipping Container. Thanks in large part to the country of Australia, newer container floors are constructed without the use of harmful pesticides. Newer container floors feature a marine-grade plywood that is made from a variety of hardwoods or bamboo. Container floors are water-resistant and exceptionally durable.

How Long do Containers Last?

The modern Shipping Container was invented in the 1950’s and has been continuously improved in the years since. Because they are built to withstand the harshest ocean conditions, containers are built to last for many years. It is quite common to see a 20-year-old container that looks in nearly brand-new condition, or to see a 40-years-old container that is still functioning well. As with any structure, when you own a container, you will want to make sure to keep it clean, painted, and maintained in order to maximize its life-span.
