What are the space restrictions where a storage container can be delivered?
Storage containers are usually delivered and lifted to the ground by the lorry's own crane, parallel to the side of the lorry. To accommodate the width of the truck and the container a space approx 20ft wide will be necessary.
The length of space required to offload will depend on the length of the container but up to a single 20ft container will require a space over 25ft long and a 30ft/40ft container over 45ft of space. There must be no overhead restrictions such as cables, or tree branches below 25ft high.
The delivery lorry must be able to drive from the highway to the off loading point which must be accessible and over solid ground with no restrictions such as drains. It is sometimes possible to offload over a low hedge or wall but this must be discussed and agreed with us in advance of the delivery.
