Our trucks are not 4-wheel drive and there will be a charge if our trucks get stuck due to road conditions not acceptable for the large trucks. 20’ containers require a minimum of 60’ in front of where the container will be placed. 40’ containers require a minimum of 100’ in front of the container. Minimum 12’ width and 16′ height. We will also need to consider the large turning radius of the trucks. Delivery site must be free and clear of fences, power lines, trees, shrubs, personal items, cars, etc. If the driver cannot place the container in the position you prefer, they will suggest an alternate placement where there is room to safely deliver.

If you do not want to add this additional service(s), the driver will deliver the container(s) where there is adequate space and this may not be in the area you has originally envisioned.
