How is the container delivered and how much space is required? Containers are delivered on a "tilt-bed" truck for 20' containers while the 40' containers are delivered on a tilt-bed trailer. Once the container is backed into position and tilted down, the truck or trailers drives out from under the container. For a 20' storage container, about 75 feet of straight clearance is needed. For a 40' storage container, the truck and trailer will need about 150 feet. top

Can I buy a container I am renting? Yes, however, two things you need to know. 1 - Your account must be current. 2 - Prior rental payments do not affect the purchase price. top

However, when the air outside the container gets cooler than the air inside, a small amount of condensation may occur and we recommend covering valuable items with plastic for added protection. top
