Most customers ask us to deliver their containers using a hiab truck (a truck with an on-board crane) which are capable of off-loading the containers and placing them on the ground.
All our drivers are fully trained and carry with them the appropriate Certification. Additionally, the trucks undergo regular safety checks and are fully insured. All drivers are CPCS Card Holders and are fully compliant with the ‘working at height regulations’. They carry a full harness system for safe unloading of our containers. Risk Assessments and Method Statements can be provided at no extra cost.
Containers are normally offloaded off the side of the vehicle and the required width required for offloading is 25ft. If you have any concerns about the suitability of your site to accommodate a truck please call us to discuss. Where required, we can arrange a Site Survey by our transport company to double check.
To assist you in checking your site we have compiled the following guidelines.
Consider the following questions:
- Can your site take a 34′ Long x 9′ wide rigid vehicle?
(20′ units are normally delivered on this type of vehicle.)
- Can your site take a 60′ Long x 9′ wide rigid vehicle?
(40′ units are normally delivered on this type of vehicle.)
- Does your site have hard access?
(Our vehicles will not normally drive over grass, fields, muddy areas or uneven ground, unless this has been pre-agreed.)
- Are there any underground cables or manholes?
- Are there any overhead cables?
(If you have any overhead cables, please state height.)
- Are there any overhanging trees?
(If you have any overhanging trees, please state height.)
- If you wish us to offload or load containers from a public highway, then you will need to take responsibility for any legal implications.
- Delivery time required (site opening times)?
(We are unable to guarantee an exact time, due to traffic and possible delays beyond our control.)
Where access for a truck presents a problem we can normally come up with a solution, such as hiring a crane.
