How much room do I need for delivery?

Posted onCategoriesFAQs
It is important to keep in mind that we will be bringing large containers to you that have to be dropped off by our hydraulic lift truck. This is very different than just parking a truck. When we leave, the container itself is sixteen feet long, but there is a twenty-nine-foot-long truck that must back up to the spot for drop-off, and we need an extra five feet or so to turn and align the truck. Space requirements for the drop-off or a pick-up are: A straight space that is 50’ long, 9-1/2’ wide, and 13’ clear overhead (for the box when it is on the truck). Remember that just because it looks like a lot of space for your truck or boat, it may be very different for our truck, which is larger than just a big U-Haul truck, because we are going to extend the box off the back of the truck, thereby adding to the length required. If you have any doubts, be sure to discuss this with us. Sometimes we are depending on other areas being empty in front of the space where your container is going to be placed. If we discuss that with you, you will need to make sure that area is empty for our truck to back up for drop-off or pick-up. Good delivery and pickup planning will avoid those kinds of problems almost every time!
