We have designed a good delivery practice for the smooth and safe transport of your shipping container. It’s hardly going to take a few minutes to examine them. Do not hesitate to reach us if you have any queries.
The most preferred drop site is the ground level to park your storage boxes safely. If it is slightly inclined then it should not exceed more than 5 degrees. In case, the truck or trailer bypasses over any sloped terrain while unloading your container, and harms the tools, that could result in the driver refusing to sell off your container.
If you are looking for the best suited street surfaces for parking your cargo boxes then Paved street surfaces have proven to be one. We also supply containers in the rural region, however, the minimum expectation of the road surface is supposed to be on a maintained two-lane county road. The bad landing street surfaces come with loose dirt, sand, sand, ditches and trenches, grass areas with soft soil, ice and snow, flooded and muddy areas, steep inclines or declines, sloping surfaces, drains. Also, it’s great if you walk around the container dropping area and get rid of rocks, tree stumps and other different things that can injure our equipment. It’s crucial to keep in mind that most transport vehicles are now not Four Wheel Drive, so they can lose traction and get caught when moved off sealed roads.
While placing the container onto the floor the weight of the container is supposed to be distributed equally on the four metal corner castings. If not, even a little twist in the container can result in making the doorways tough to open and close. Alternatively, you can also select any area where you can place the pavers, hard blocks of wood or railroad ties under the container, do not fail to test that the floor is level.
Mostly, a minimal height and width of 14 ft are a must. The moment storage boxes are unloaded the driver accurately elevates the container to 20 ft to slide the container off of the trailer to the ground. It is approximately the highest point for the container. Do not fail to be careful about low-hanging tree branches, gates, arches, eaves and different barriers that might injure the tractor or trailer, so you want to make certain there is enough clearance to avoid an unexpected accident. Less visibility can additionally be a security hazard for the delivery person so on the day of the transport it’s better you have two people with you at the location to act as spotters of low-hanging objects.
Our transport truck needs a minimum of 60ft in a direct route to transport a 20ft container.
Our transport truck needs a minimum of 100ft in a direct route to transport a 40ft container.
*Transport vehicle is restricted to turn while unloading your cargo box*
