Containers are delivered on a tilt bed truck. The driver tilts the bed up, and the container touches the ground. Our delivery equipment is usually backed into position in order to get the container in place.
For a 40ft container, the access area must be at least 10 feet wide and at least 70 feet long in a straight line. For a 20ft container, the access area must be at least 10 feet wide and at least 50 feet long in a straight line. The area must also be flat and free of obstacles to allow the driver to get the container into place.
Be sure to check the entire access path to see if you have at least 14 feet of overhead clearance from the ground to the lowest point of anything overhead such as building overhangs, trees, and utility lines.
