Frequently Asked Questions

  • What size containers do you rent?
    We have 20-foot containers with doors on one end, and 40-foot containers with doors on one, or both ends.
  • Are the containers waterproof?
    Yes. We test all of our sotrage containers before they leave our delivery yard to be sure they will not leak. The containers are completely enclosed and will keep wind, rain, and snow out, so your contents stay dry and secure.
  • How far will you deliver?
    We are based in West Michigan and will deliver in the Greater Grand Rapids area, contact us for avalibility.
  • How is the container delivered?
    We deliver our units using a tilt-bed truck and/or tilt-bed trailer. With the trailer raised, the container slides off of the trailer, resting on one end. The truck/trailer will need to pull straight out from under the container.
  • How much space is required for delivery?
    The amount of space required is minimal. For a 20-foot storage container, you will need approximately 75 feet of straight clearance. For a 40-foot container, you will need approximately 100 feet of straight clearance. The width requirement is approximately 10 feet.
  • Is there any site preparation necessary?
    The only thing you need to worry about is that the surface is fairly level, smooth, and firm. We can deliver on dirt as long as it is not too soft. We can also deliver on cement, pavement, asphalt, gravel, or grass.
  • How soon can my storage unit be delivered?
    In most cases, we can make deliveries within 24 hours during the work week. We can provide a definite delivery day and time frame when you place the order.
  • What type of payment is required upon delivery?
    For rentals, we collect the first month's rent, plus delivery fees. For purchase, we collect the total sales price including delivery charges and sales tax. We accept personal or business checks, cash, Visa, and MasterCard.
  • Do I need to be present for the delivery of my storage unit?
    We would prefer that you or a designated employee be present when we make the delivery to identify the correct place to park the unit on your property and verify the condition of the unit.
  • How much is the cost of delivery and pickup?
    Transportation costs vary depending on your location and the length of time commitment involved. We can provide an exact quote when you place your order.
  • How do you bill for the rented storage containers?
    We bill at the beginning of each 28-day billing period and we expect to be paid within 30 days of invoice date. Alternatively, we can arrange for automatic billing on your Visa or MasterCard each month.
