How far can you transport a shipping container?
We provide shipping container drayage services throughout the lower mainland in British Columbia, including Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Delta, Langley, Surrey, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, along the sea-to-sky highway, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack. If you need your storage unit to go further, give us a call and we can try to accommodate your needs.
What kind of lead-time do you require before transporting a container?
We can usually begin work a few days after your first call or email, depending on equipment requirements. Email us or call us with the size of your container and the postal code of where it’s going, and a member of our team will contact you to begin setting up a quote and let you know when we can begin working.
How can Rent1 drayage services save costs?
Because we’re a heavy equipment rental company, we can offer construction equipment for loading and hauling at the guaranteed lowest rates. We also have access to low-bed trailer services at low rates, which can transport large containers over long distances.
What do I need to do to the land to ensure storage container placement will work?
Storage containers should be placed on level, or as close-to-level as possible, ground. Safety is our top concern no matter what job we’re doing, so if the ground of your site is not safe for shipping container placement, we will have to find another location to place it.
What kind of shipping containers does Rent1 have available?
Check out our shipping container rental page to see our rental options. Our shipping containers come with secure doors and locks to make sure all your valuables are kept safely inside.
What kind of space is required to place a shipping container?
Depending on the size of your shipping container, we will need space to not only place the container, but also fit the loading and moving equipment required to lift the storage container. In addition, a truck will need access to your site. If you provide the details to our dispatch team, we will make sure the site works before any drayage is started.
