Delivery Guide

In this short guide we will outline some of the steps you need to take when delivering your container. The aim is to make the delivery process fast and safe.

Eveon entrusts the transport of your container to trucking companies that have been in the business for years, with experienced drivers and we arrange delivery on either "tilt-bed" or "roll-off" trucks.

The reason these trucks are used is due to the size and weight of the object. Tilting the bed allows the driver to easily load and unload your containers, safely and efficiently. 

The driver will contact you by phone to ensure that everything is ready for the delivery of your container.

To guarantee that this goes smoothly, we ask that you check that your site is safe and easy for the truck to access and that the location of your container meets certain requirements listed below: 

1. Space is of the essence, you need to ensure that there is the possibility for the driver to maneuvers the truck easily and safely.

  • For the delivery of a 40ft container consider an extra 60ft of space in addition to the container itself.
  • For a 20ft container, allow for an additional 40ft of space in addition to the container itself.
  • The minimum available height should be 16ft.

2. Another important aspect to consider is the weight; a truck loaded with a container is very heavy and may experience difficulties (may block or bog down) if the surface is not suitable.

 Unsuitable surfaces for this kind of delivery are for example:

  • Mud, sand, wet grass, surfaces covered with ice or snow, (steep) slopes, drainage.
  • In contrast, concrete, asphalt and dry compacted soil are the most suitable surfaces. 

3. It is also essential that the container is placed on a horizontal surface. This ensures that the doors open and close correctly. 

4. Finally, it is important to ensure that there are no objects that could obstruct the passage of the truck, such as pylons, overhanging branches or rocks that could impede the correct passage of the vehicle.
