New & Used Shipping Containers – Storage Containers – Ocean Cargo Containers
Frequently Asked Questions
- What type of modifications can you do?
We can add extra doors, windows, turbine vents or partitions.
- Are the containers weather proof?
Yes. We water-test all of our storage containers before they leave our delivery yard to be sure they do not leak. The containers are completely enclosed and will keep wind and rain and snow out so your contents stay dry and secure.
- What if I want shelving?
We can provide shelving in many different configurations to suit your storage needs. Shelves can be installed in the container high or low, wrap-around, or on just one side – whatever works for you.
- What color are the containers?
The containers come in a variety of colors determined by the shipping lines. Our inventory changes constantly and we cannot control what color the containers are when we purchase them. However, we can paint containers to match your location.
- How much space is required for delivery?
The amount of space required is minimal. For a 20′ storage container, you will need approximately 80 feet of straight clearance. For a 40′ container, you will need approximately 100 feet of straight clearance. The width requirement is approximately 12 feet.
- How is the container delivered?
We deliver our units using a tilt-bed truck and/or tilt-bed trailer. With the trailer raised, the container slides off the trailer resting on one end. Then, the truck/trailer will need to pull straight out from under the container. We can deliver the containers on straight trucks or chassis, at a reduced cost, if you can offload the container.
- Is any site preparation necessary?
The only thing you need to worry about is that the surface is fairly level, smooth, and firm. We can deliver on dirt as long as it is not too soft. We can also deliver on cement, pavement, asphalt, gravel or packed dirt.
- How long will delivery take after I place my order?
Normal delivery time can be as quick as two to five days providing you are not having any modifications done to the unit. If you need something sooner, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
- How far will you deliver?
We deliver to anywhere in the United States.
- How is my lock protected?
All of our storage containers come equipped with standard lock rods. For an additional charge, we can weld a steel lock box to the outside of the unit. The lock box conceals and protects your lock from being tampered with.
- What type of payment is required upon delivery?
We collect the total sales price including delivery charge and sales tax before delivery. We accept personal or business checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
