Standard Features of our Commercial Site Container

Storage containers are constructed with 12- or 14-gauge corrugated steel sides. Container frames are made of minimal 6-8-gauge steel. Containers have approximately 1″ hard wood floors that are treated. Standard containers come equipped with a cargo door. Cargo doors are excellent because they seal tight from rodents and the elements. They also give you the ability to open the entire end of the container and load very large items. Roll up doors are convenient because they are light weight and easy to open. This confidence comes with obvious downsides. Roll up doors are not as secure and are not 100% water tight. As a typical garage door water tends to seap below the door. They are typically also not rodent proof. Ask the Container Alliance partner in your area about door options and specifications.

Solid Heavy Duty Construction

Commercial Storage Containers are constructed with 12 or 14 gauge corrugated steel sides. Container frames are made of 6 or 8 gauge steel. Containers also have approximately 1″ hard wood pressure treated floors. Each container comes equipped with a cargo door covering the entire end of the container. Cargo doors provide an excellent tight seal, to protect your items from rodents and the elements. They also give you the ability to load large items. Additionally we offer several alternative door configurations. Roll up doors are convenient, light weight and easy to open. Roll up doors also have a few disadvantages. Roll up doors are not as secure and are not 100% water tight. Just like a typical garage door, water tends to seep below the door. They are also typically not rodent proof.

What do I need to know to consider before renting a Commercial Container?

Foundation

Containers are designed to be supported at each of the 4 corners. Be prepared to support the ends with a concrete footing, railroad ties, asphalt or a bed of gravel. It is not advised to place the container directly on the ground with no support.  The best option is one that provides suitable stability to keep the container level with adequate drainage. Furthermore, an uneven site can cause the doors to bind.

Space Requirements

The delivery of a storage container is normally done with a semi tractor-trailer. The trailer that carries the container tilts so the container slides off the bed of the trailer. Because the container slides off the back of the trailer, you will need more than 80 feet of space in front of the location where the container is to be landed. Plan to leave around 40 feet of turn space for the loading and unloading equipment.

Delivery

Your preferred vendor will deliver the container most likely with a tilt bed roll of style truck or trailer.  Smaller units will often arrive on a medium sized flat-bed tow truck and require up to 60 feet to backup.  Larger units will arrive on a tractor trailer and may require up to 80 feet of space.
