A GUIDE TO STORAGE CONTAINERS
Things to consider
Have you identified a suitable location for the unit?
Have you considered its possible orientation?
Is there likely to be acceptable access for delivery?
Are there likely to be any special safety considerations?
Is the ground relatively level or is it sloping?
Will there be suitable access for users?
Are there any overhead restrictions such as power cables or overhanging trees in the way?
What sizes of storage containers are available?
How long can I hire it for?
The minimum hire period is four weeks and it can be hired for as long as you need it.
Can it be delivered?
We can arrange delivery and offload it into position using one of our vehicles with a lorry mounted crane.
Will the storage container fit on my site?
Our delivery vehicle will need clear access to the delivery point and a hard-standing area to set-up and offload the unit. We can get a storage container to most locations within reason - if you are unsure we can arrange a free site visit to determine how the unit can be sited.
How heavy are the storage containers?
Empty weight (approx)
8 ft 1000 kg
10 ft 1300 kg
20 ft 2200 kg
40 ft 3800 kg
How much will it cost?
All our products are very competitively priced - the hire rate will depend on how long you want to hire it for. Give us a call for an instant price.
Just how secure are the storage containers?
All of our storage containers and very secure and vandal resistant. Double doors are fitted to one end of the unit for ease of access. Our storage containers are designed to accept a high security padlock. We can supply a padlock for you to purchase or hire with the unit unless you want to provide that yourselves.
How soon can I have it delivered?
We have storage containers that are ready for immediate delivery.
How do I pay for the unit?
When you hire the storage container the first payment required for new customers is the first four weeks rental plus the delivery and collection charges. We can take payment over the telephone by debit or credit card. This payment must be in place before the unit can be delivered. Thereafter you will be invoiced on a monthly basis.
Will any maintenance of the unit be required?
All of our storage containers are extremely robust - it is a good idea if the unit is on site for a long time to grease the door hinges and locking bars.
What ground preparation will be required to site the unit?
It is advisable the storage container is placed on level ground not only for your ease of access but to avoid any problems in opening and shutting the doors. Our driver will help with the positioning - however it is your responsibility to ensure that that the ground is adequately prepared and that you have any materials such as concrete paving slabs or railway sleepers to site the unit level.
Can I purchase a storage container?
Of course - we can supply new or second-hand containers in both standard and non-standard sizes. Please give us a call to discuss your exact requirements.
What if I want the storage container moved to a different location?
Just give us a call and we will make the arrangements.
What about when I have finished with the storage container?
Just contact us and we will arrange for the unit to be collected on a date convenient to you.
