Frequently Asked Questions

Are the containers weatherproof?

We guarantee your container to be delivered in wind & watertight condition. The containers are completely enclosed and will keep wind & rain out so your contents stay dry and secure.

Do I need to prepare the surface where the container will be placed?

No surface prep is required. The container can sit directly on the ground. The only parts of the container that will come in contact with the ground are the four corners. There will be approximately a 5” to 6” gap between the ground and the underside of the container. ***We recommend that you select as level a spot as possible for the container. The doors can be difficult to open and close if the container is not level.

Will your driver level the container upon delivery?

Yes. The driver carries small pieces of 1” x 2” pressure treated wood and a jack. He will check the doors before leaving and is able to shim up a corner if necessary. ***If the area is extremely unlevel, the driver may not have the ability level the container completely. Additional leveling may be required over time as you load the container with your items.

Can the container be placed on railroad ties/landscape timbers upon delivery?

Yes. Many of our customers choose to elevate the container slightly by placing railroad ties/landscape timbers under each corner or on each end. Our drivers are able to assist you in doing so. ***We do not provide the railroad ties/landscape timbers.

How much room is required on-site for delivery of my container?

Our 20ft containers are delivered on a small roll back truck. Containers over 40ft in length are delivered on our tilt bed trailer. The driver will set one end of the container on the ground and pull out from underneath the container. The container, truck and trailer will be in one long line as he does so. He’ll need approximately 50-60ft of a straight drive to deliver a 20’ container. He’ll need approximately 80-100ft of a straight drive to deliver a 40ft or 45ft container. He’ll need approximately 100-125ft of a straight drive to deliver a 48ft or 53ft container.

How much overhead clearance is needed to deliver my container?

The driver will need at least 14ft of overhead clearance for delivery. Any overhanging power lines, tree limbs, branches or anything below 14ft are in danger of being damaged.

How quickly can I expect my container to be delivered after placing an order?

We are usually able to deliver your container within 5 business days from the time you place your order. In some cases we are able to deliver your container the next day. Much of when we deliver your container will depend on the trucking schedule at the time the order is placed. ***Delivery of modified containers will vary based on the scope of the project.

Can I request a specific exterior color of my container?

Containers are painted many different colors (usually one solid color) when manufactured. Depending on what we have at the time of your inquiry, we are happy to provide you with a container to meet your color requirements. If we do not have the exact color you’re looking for, we are always able to paint the exterior for you.

Am I able to inspect my container prior to delivery?

Yes. We are physically located in Morrow, GA (just south of the Atlanta airport). You are welcome to visit our facility and select your container in person.

Are the containers made of steel or aluminum?

Depending on availability, we are able to provide steel or aluminum containers. The steel containers are used primarily for international shipping. They are comprised of corrugated, 14 gauge steel panels throughout. They have 1-1/8” thick hardwood flooring on the interior. The aluminum containers are primarily used for over the road and rail service. They are comprised of .050 aluminum sheets. The sheets are riveted to aluminum or galvanized steel center posts and are built on a steel frame. They also have 1-1/8” thick hardwood flooring on the interior.
