Will the container fit at my home?
A 20 foot container is large and you’ll need to have a safe legal spot for us to park it. We are not able to drop it in an unsafe location or where it may be ticketed or towed without your signing of a waiver. You will need to be sure the place you direct us to park it on the street, is legal, safe and allowed to be there overnight. If you’d like we can provide the waiver that will allow us to drop in your driveway.
The containers are also 48 inches off the ground, this will require you to have a loading ramp that can reach or be able to manually lift all items 48 inches off the ground and into the container. Below are some resources for you to find ramps or DIY solutions.
You can find loading ramps for rent at:

How should I pack my container?
When packing your container please keep in mind that the heaviest items should be on the bottom of any stacks and the lightest items should be at the top of the rows you are creating. Tightly packing the container left to right and front to back is important. You do not need to pack the container to the ceiling if you don’t need the space. Load your bulkiest items first (washing machines, bookshelves, couches, etc…) and fill in space with boxes. If you do not have enough items to fill the container front to back we’d suggest securing with high-quality ties at the point you stop being able to fill.
