Generally no site preparation is necessary. However the site should be fairly level to allow loading and unloading of the container. Remember, the container will be delivered on the back of a truck or trailer so low power lines or tree limbs could hinder delivery.
For both 20’ or 40’ containers, one end of the container is lowered to the ground with a tilt bed and the driver then pulls out from under it. For 20’ containers, 65 feet of clear space is needed. For 40’ containers, 125 feet of clear space is needed.
Zoning or Permits:
Please consult you local zoning office for any concerns regarding whether storage containers are allowed at your location or to determine if you may need a local permit. This is typically not a concern however; each governing authority may have specific regulations.
Generally payment of the first rental invoice as well as delivery and pick-up charges are required when the container is delivered. Future rental charges will be invoiced. How much are Delivery and Pick-up charges? Charges vary with the size of the container and the distance to the delivery site. This will be quoted in advance once the delivery address is known.
How secure are Anchor Leasing storage containers?
All conex containers are equipped with four cam rods and padlock hasps. For a few sites this may be sufficient. All Anchor Leasing containers are modified with an exclusive locking device that, with the use of a disk lock, prevents the hasp from being accessible to bolt cutters. We suggest this be used at any site where personnel may not be present (such as job sites or retail stores at night)
How strong are your storage containers?
All conex containers are designed to meet rugged international shipping standards. Storage containers from Anchor Leasing ARE NOT made from fiberglass and/or plywood. Please see the specs page for more information.
We refer to our containers as either storage containers or conex containers. They also go by the names of: Shipping Container - ISO Container - Cargo Container - Conex Box – Connex Box – Job Site Box – Sea Box – Shipping Box – ISO Box – Shipping Box – Sea Container – Ground Level Storage
