Get ready to install your shipping container.

So you’re thinking about getting a shipping container installed on your property? That’s awesome! Shipping containers are a great way to add extra storage space or create a unique workspace. Before you get started, there are a few things you need to consider.

First, you need to find a flat location where the container can be placed. It’s important to make sure the ground is level and stable so that the container doesn’t shift or tip over. If the ground is uneven, you may need to add some gravel or other materials to create a stable base.

Next, you need to clear the area of any debris or objects that may interfere with the placement of the shipping container. This will ensure that there is enough space for the truck to deliver and set down the container. If you’re not sure whether our transport partners can access your site, just mention it to our team. Our transport partners are particularly skilled at what they do, and they can usually land our shipping containers anywhere with ease.  

It’s also a good idea to prepare the ground by creating a foundation for the container. This can be done by using concrete footings or wooden beams. By creating a foundation, you can ensure that the container is level and stable.

One thing to keep in mind is that it’s best to raise the container off the ground to allow for proper ventilation. This will help prevent moisture buildup and keep your items dry and safe. You can use blocks or other materials to raise the container off the ground.

Before installing a shipping container on your property, it’s important to check with your local council or building authority to ensure that you comply with any regulations or bylaws. You don’t need consent to install a container on your property, however you might have to comply with covenants or other restrictions, so it pays to do your homework first.

While preparing for a shipping container installation requires some planning and consideration, it doesn’t take a lot of mahi. By finding a flat location, clearing the area, creating a foundation, raising it off the ground for ventilation, and checking local regulations, you can ensure that your shipping container is installed safely and securely.

Our team will be there with you every step of the way to ensure your shipping container installation is smooth and stress-free. Call us on 0800 MAKE SPACE or flick us an email.
