Mobile storage containers are practical for multiple industries, from general contracting to healthcare to retail to entertainment. No matter what the industry is, though, your storage container will require the best when it comes to delivery and pickup. Here’s what you need to do when preparing for your business’s storage container delivery and pickup.
Storage Container Delivery with Allied
The first way to prepare for a storage container delivery is to choose the best storage container company. Allied Trailers has proved to be perhaps the most reliable independent mobile container provider on the east coast, with eight locations from Maryland to Florida. All of their products are manufactured in-house and are built to last, with maintenance services available. Through the Allied Trailers website, one can receive a straightforward quote within 24 hours and swiftly schedule delivery from there. Choosing a provider with a reputable record and excellent customer service will make the storage container delivery process far smoother.
Provide Enough Space
When preparing for the delivery itself, one must ensure that there is more than enough space for the truck to set the container on the site. An open, spacious lot is the best type of space for one or more containers. A truck may need at least three times the length of the container to properly set it on the ground. For more details, contact Allied Trailers.
Aside from space, one must be sure that the delivery truck can access the lot. A tight corner on a narrow lane won’t necessarily give enough room for the truck to turn. Likewise, fencing could get in the way. If the site has security personnel, one must work with them to ensure access for the truck as well.
Prepare the Ground
Depending on the size of the mobile storage unit, it could weigh at least several thousand pounds. Therefore, the ground on which it rests is important to its stability. The ground must also be level. Hard surfaces, like concrete, asphalt, paved stone, and gravel, offer the best support. If you are parking the container on a soft surface like soil or sand, you may need to place concrete or wood blocks under the four corners of the unit to aid in leveling and stability.
