Frequently asked questions

You (the hirer) are responsible for insuring the container.

We recommend placing timber sleepers or concrete blocks under the container to keep it a minimum of 100mm off the ground. This allows air circulation under the container and helps prevent rust and rot developing on the underside of the container, especially in damp areas. DO NOT place the container directly on bare damp ground.

Generally we use a sliding tilt tray vehicle where the container slides off the back of the truck and the truck drives out from underneath the container. You must nominate to us if you want the container doors facing the back of the truck or facing the drivers cab of the truck.
