I’m worried about access to my site – are there any restrictions when delivering shipping containers?

When booking a shipping container delivery, it’s vital to equip our transport and lifting planners – as well as the driver – with as much information about the site as possible. There are a few things that will need to be considered. For example, if the location is on a slope, then we will need to ensure we are equipped with the required equipment needed to level the container. Also, things like both access to the site and onsite conditions need to be considered and communicated, including:

  • on/off-road location
  • ground construction
  • cellars
  • sewers
  • power lines, etc…

Access routes, roads and tracks to the site will need to allow for a large lorry, and the delivery zones need to be free from overhead electrical cables.

To help with these considerations, we’ve created a great lifting and delivery guide, which aims to ensure you know all you need to know. Plus we’ve got a suite of youtube videos on our channel explaining a lot more about the containers and vehicles that position them – check it our here.

If in doubt, contact our team to discuss any concerns or queries.
