Delivery & Collection
Whilst each method of delivery has its own unique characteristics such as area required for delivery, there are some basic things to be aware of and to plan for.
- SAFETY – the container must be able to be delivered to a safe delivery environment
- Council Approval for the location of the container (you cannot drop in the street, for example)
- Power Lines are obstructing the path to the deliver area or the delivery route (some cables in streets are quite low), ensure at least 4.5m clearance
- Surface of the Delivery Area - can it take the weight of the delivery vehicle and the container? The customer is responsible for all costs if the vehicle becomes bogged.
- Direction of the doors – which way should the container doors face on the truck?
- Is the truck reversing into position or driving forward into position
- The ground on which the container is positioned should be level
- The container should be placed on sleepers or similar in order to allow air flow beneath the container. This will greatly extend the life of the unit.
Please read further for the space needed for each type of delivery vehicle.
