    Shipping Container Delivery


    Container Delivery

    Need shipping containers delivered to your site?

    Or perhaps you need container transport ahead of freight movement?

    Gap Container Services Limited can help.

    What is a shipping container delivery service?

    Once you order your new or used shipping container or even a container conversion, you might be wondering how you can get it home – it’s probably not going to fit in the car!

    Gap Containers Ltd can arrange professional container transport and specialist delivery service across the UK, helping to get your investment back to wherever you need it, without concerns for the safety of others.

    We can deliver and offload any storage container at any UK destination whether empty or loaded, thanks to our experienced delivery drivers.

    Similarly, our HI-AB vehicles are stocked with the latest lifting equipment to ensure smooth delivery, no matter how rough or complex the delivery site.

    How do we ensure safe and professional container delivery?

    Gap Containers has over 30 years of experience within the haulage industry.

    Having been in the industry since the onset of vehicle-mounted, HIAB cranes in the UK, we have provided our customers with full nationwide and administrative container delivery services that are exclusive within our industry.

    When you choose GAP for shipping container delivery, you can rest assured that your storage containers or cargo are in safe, highly professional hands.

    Our HIAB vehicles and delivery drivers are:

      • Certified to ISO 9000 standard – including all lifting equipment, cranes, and chains.
      • Carriers of CSCS cards.
      • Stocked with appropriate PPE – including high-visibility clothing, hard hats, boots, gloves, mobiles, and harnesses.
      • Maintained regularly – all vehicles and lifters are inspected and maintained at 6 weekly periods.
      • Well-trained – and fully certified in the use of crane-mounted, HIAB, vehicles.
      • Dedicated to following strenuous health and safety policy – and can supply method statements of delivery upon request.

    What to expect from container delivery

    If you are considering getting a shipping container delivered, you may well be wondering what you need to know or do before the container is delivered.

    To make it simpler, here’s what you need to know the day before and on the day your shipping containers are transported.

    The day before

    So you can be sure, the helpful staff at Gap Containers will let you know when your shipping containers are expected to be delivered.

    This will be given to you as either a morning or afternoon delivery slot, but more details will be given on the day of offloading.

    This is also the ideal time to double-check the offloading site for issues, such as soft ground, overhead cables, and a tight spot for turning around.

    While we will already know about these potential issues, checking them and ensuring nothing has changed can make deliveries simpler and cut down on offloading time when our drivers arrive at your chosen site.

    On the day

    Once in transit to you from our depot, your delivery driver will contact you in person by phone, to give you an expected two-hour slot for arrival.

    This updated timeslot will take into account road conditions and traffic, so should be relatively precise – though if you are experiencing any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at reception.

    Delivery guide checklist

    To ensure your container lifting and delivery goes as smoothly as possible, it is absolutely essential you read and complete the following checklist – failure to do so can mean that delivery cannot be completed or additional charges will be passed on to you.

    • Please tell us if the container has to be lifted over obstructions – including buildings, walls, or any overhead wires, as this may prohibit us from delivery.
    • Let us know if you want containers placed inside a building – as access and height clearance restrictions apply and may incur additional charges.
    • Check the site for installation – it is your responsibility to ensure your area is level and has hard-standing capacity.

    If the ground is soft or uneven, we may be able to provide sleepers as a base, but you need to inform us in advance.

    In certain circumstances, such as if the site conditions are poor, we may not be able to deliver your container. We may have to abort the delivery at your cost so please ensure we are made aware of every eventuality possible.

    • Don’t choose an inappropriate location – such as those that block drains or fire exits. If units need to be repositioned after delivery, there will be an extra charge.
    • Don’t wait until after the driver leaves to check that delivery is to your satisfaction – delivery drivers will require a signature to confirm that the unit is in the correct position, the doors operate correctly, the locks work (if supplied), and there are no defects with the equipment.

    A method statement can be supplied prior to container delivery if required.
