Shipping Container Delivery Cost, Prices, and Fees
Shipping container delivery truck rates vary based on the distance the truck has to travel from the depot or yard where the container is delivered from. You would think that 20 ft shipping container delivery cost would be half that of 40 ft shipping container delivery cost but it is not. Generally the cost for delivery of a 20’ container is about two thirds that of a 40’ container.
Shipping Container Delivery Methods
Regarding the delivery of containers, the best shipping container delivery truck for 20’ containers is a flat bed wrecker. These trucks are common as they are typically used for the transport of broken down automobiles. The addition of rails to the edge of the bed makes it simple to load and unload containers as they stay centered on the bed as it slides off. Alternatively delivery can be had via a truck coupled to a shipping container delivery trailer. Keep in mind that most customers do not have the ability to self unload a container therefore they require tilt bed shipping container delivery. Both of the methods described above are by this method.
Shipping Container Delivery Requirements
Delivery via flat bed wrecker is optimal when the space to unload is 75’ or less as the length of the truck overall is quite short. The drawback to delivery via truck and trailer combo is that this method requires more space to unload as the overall length of the truck and trailer make it necessary to have closer to 85’ overall. Both methods require overhead clearance of 11’ 6” for a standard height container and 12’ 6” for a high cube storage container. The container must be placed on fairly level ground. If it is not, the contents inside the container could shift and become damaged if they fell. It should also be placed on firm ground as the container will sink over time making the doors hard to open and close.
