Site Condition / Access Guide

Help us to help you by following these simple guidelines for an efficient and safe delivery.

  • It is essential we are advised in advance of delivery if the containers will need to be lifted over walls, fences, buildings, obstructions or other containers, as this will require an independent crane.
  • If you want a container placed inside a building as access and height clearance restrictions will apply.
  • Confirm that the area is level and has hard standing capacity. If the ground is soft or uneven, we may be able to provide sleepers as a base, but you will need to inform us in advance. There will be a charge for the sleepers. These are subject to availability and priced at the time of ordering.
  • In the case of refrigerated equipment please leave two to three clear metres of space at the machinery end. This is necessary to avoid blocking airflow and to enable the engineer to service the equipment, safely and remove major components if necessary.
  • Equipment will not be unloaded if it inhibits services, drains, manhole covers or fire exits. This is a Health & Safety issue and any aborted journey due to these circumstances is chargeable.
  • Refrigerated units should not be placed more than 10 metres from the power supply. We can supply extra cable, but this will be charged and can only be fitted whereby it does not present any hazardous risk. For example, trailing on the ground, or whereby it can be abused or vandalised.
  • Please ensure before the driver leaves to check that delivery is to your satisfaction. He/she will require a signature to confirm that the unit is in the correct position, the doors operate correctly, locks work (if supplied) and there are no defects with the equipment. A method Statement can be supplied prior to delivery, if required.

If you are unsure about any of these points, we can also offer a site inspection service to assess your delivery needs.
