Make Sure You Understand the Weight Requirements
Whenever you are getting storage containers delivered to a specific location, it’s very important to make sure that the site can bear the weight. Keep in mind that the storage container and truck that delivers it can weigh over 45,000 pounds.

Try to strategize ahead of time where the best location for your storage containers is.
Think Through Space Requirements
Getting storage containers delivered can make your life a lot easier from a logistics standpoint. However, you need to think through the amount of space that is required for the storage containers to be delivered successfully. A lot depends on the size of the storage containers that you have purchased. For example, a 40 ft storage container will need about twice the length of the container to be delivered. Make sure that you are choosing a space to house your storage containers that allows them to be easily delivered.
The last tip for making sure you can get your storage containers successfully delivered is to choose the right surface. Keep in mind that you will need to open and close the doors of the storage containers. If they are on a surface that isn’t leveled, you could be dealing with issues when you try to open and close the doors of the storage container. You also want to avoid putting your storage containers on a soft surface because the weight of the storage containers can make them sink into the ground over time.
