Here are three important things to think about before scheduling a storage container delivery.

Storage containers are a great solution for many industries, and ordering a container from Allied Trailers is a very simple and straightforward process. However, since storage containers are large, there are a few things to consider before scheduling a delivery. Continue reading for a short list of things to think about before ordering your storage container from Allied Trailers to ensure the process goes smoothly!


The location of the company you choose is one of the most important factors, as you don’t want to order from a firm that is hours away. Allied Trailers has multiple locations to ensure we cover customers all over the East Coast! Our locations include Savage, Brandywine, and Cambridge, MD, Hampton and Manassas, VA, Raleigh-Durham, NC, and Orlando and West Palm Beach, FL. We also offer full-service and in-house solutions, which means that we never outsource the storage trailers or customer service you need to another business. We have our own fleet of trucks designed to deliver and pick-up your trailers, which allows us to ship the next day rather than next month.

Your Property

It’s important to give an exact location for your storage container delivery to ensure we deliver to the correct spot. Be sure to think about where the container will be placed on your property before scheduling a delivery, as the location will make a big difference in how effective the storage container is! Also, keep in mind the size container you are ordering, as the drop-off of a 20’ or 40’ container requires a lot of open space.


You will also want to decide which way you would like the doors of the container to face so we can load the unit onto the delivery truck properly. The container will either be loaded with the doors of the unit facing the cab of the truck or facing the back of the truck. Having the doors of the storage unit facing a certain way will make it easier for you to load and unload your items.
