How Do I Prepare for Storage Container Delivery?

Many customers with smaller storage need to buy or rent 20 ft. storage containers because they fit in a single parking spot, making them convenient and portable. However, there are still some common-sense preparation tasks you should complete before you have your storage container(s) delivered. Use these tips and your delivery will go off without a hitch:

  • Choose a flat, dry, and hard location to place the container.
  • Ensure the delivery area is clean and clear of debris.
  • Make room for the delivery truck — move anything in the way and leave extra space for the truck to clear any other nearby vehicles.
  • Schedule the delivery for a time you are available (or can authorize someone who is) to sign the paperwork — we need your signature to finish the dropoff.
