For customers who have never rented from us before, you might be worried about how the process works—especially when it comes to getting your container to you. However, that isn’t a problem when you choose AAA Mobile Storage because we’ll deliver it right where you want it!
Once you’ve picked out your storage container, let us know where you want it to go. You can have it delivered to you, your warehouse, your workspace, or any other location that works for you. Our professional team will personally deliver your container to your given address, so you don’t have to! There are five things that you’ll want to consider when choosing where to place your container.
The access area must be at least 12 feet wide and 125 feet in a straight line. The area must be flat and obstacle-free for the driver to navigate the trailer.
To calculate the required clearance length, the length of the trailer must be added to 60' of clearance for the delivery equipment plus 20' to maneuver the equipment. (40' + 60' + 20' = 120')
Check all access paths and confirm you have at least 20' of overhead clearance from the ground to the lowest point of the overhanging item.
The container has four corner posts. It is vital that each corner post is closely level. When containers are off level, the doors do not work as efficiently. They can bind up or not open and close at all. The ground does not have to be perfectly level, but the closer the better. If you find one side of your container a little off, use a stepping-stone or wood blocks to help level it up. When we deliver your container, we can help level it.
Avoid placing your container right on the ground at all costs. Containers dropped directly on the ground hold the moisture from underneath. As daytime temperatures rise, moisture tends to come up through the wood—leading to condensation. If possible, set the container on 1" to 2" of gravel. You can use railroad ties, and you’ll want 2 ties for a 20' container or 4 ties for a 40' container. We can place your container on concrete footings if needed. We also recommend that you keep the doors to your container closed as much as you can to prevent moisture from settling in the container.
