In the same way that the airlines are using internet gateways like Priceline to sell their extra seats, shipping container vendors are able to offer their containers through the Shipped Marketplace direct to us. We really feel great being able to submit 1 request and then getting to choose from such a diverse range of seller's offers.

The default, most economical and most frequently used delivery method. You'll need 100 feet of clearance in a straight line for a 40' container and 60 feet of clearance for a 20'. The default is for the container doors to be front facing, if you want rear facing doors, specify that in the notes.Truck w/ Integrated Crane (Hiab Truck)
This type of delivery combination is used when lateral space is an issue, if the container is going to be set up on a high pedestal or when buying multiple or odd-size containers. The container is loaded onto the Hiab Truck, delivered to the site and unloaded with the built-in front-loader crane. The size/type of Hiab Truck depends on the number and size of the container(s).Flatbed Trailer w/ Separate Crane
This is an alternative to the integrated (all-in-one) flatbed/crane (Haib Truck) option. This method is commonly used when purchasing large numbers of containers, or containers of different sizes that will be delivered on multiple flatbeds, or via multiple trips. The crane will follow on a separate (possibly Hiab-type) vehicle. As above, good when placing the container on a high bed, pedestal or when stacking.Flatbed Trailer (We have our own crane)
If you have your own crane or forklift, this is the best and cheapest way to go. The container is placed on a flatbed truck / chassis and delivered to your site. It's then your responsibility to safely move the container with your own crane or forklift.Special Delivery (Specify in Notes)
Have a complex situation? Select this option and include in your notes the intended use of the container and where you'll need it delivered; i.e. gravel, a cement pad, stacked containers, etc. Include as much information as possible about the delivery location and your specific requirements.
If you're unsure about which method to choose, please contact us, we'd be glad to assist you.×
