Storage containers are highly secure and virtually vandal proof. As standard there is a place for padlocks on door handles.

Our lock boxes are designed to accept a high security container padlock and protect that padlock from being tampered with.

Within reason, we can get a storage container almost anywhere. We use flatbed trucks to transport our storage containers. Typically the containers are offloaded by sliding off the back of the tilted flatbed as the truck is pulling forward. Our drivers require a path of 50 running feet for 20' and 100 running feet for 40' from where the truck will be positioned to drop the container as well as at least 13 ft of vertical clearance.

Storage containers are non-permanent, so for most of Long Island, it is not a problem. There are certain areas where you may be required to purchase a permit. Check with your local city office to see if you need a permit.

Storage containers should be placed on level ground otherwise you may find it difficult to open and shut the doors. Our drivers can help with positioning; however it is your responsibility to ensure the ground is adequately prepared and that you have the materials to make the storage container sit level. We can level the container using our own materials if you notify us in advance.
