Frequently Asked Questions

Q What exactly does 'port-to-port' mean?
A Port-to-port is the time it takes our delivery driver to depart from Tilton, New Hampshire, make the delivery, and return to Tilton.
Q What's involved in setting up a container at my site?
A The ground needs to be level. Tilton Trailer will prvide 6" x 6" timbers to put at corners. See photos on this web site to see how various units are delivered.
Q What are my site requirements - slope, drainage, trees?
A Your terrain should be reasonably level and firm. Let us know in advance if you think you have low-hanging electrical wires or tree limbs: We require about 15 feet of height to unload a unit.
Q What if a sign about weight limits is POSTED on my road?
A We routinely help our customers get permission from local officials (road agents) to use restricted roads. Generally, this is more of an issue during springtime.

A Generally, containers are delivered within two days of your inquiry. In some cases, same-day delivery is possible.

Q Can I purchase the storage cotainer that I am renting?
A Yes, but rental payments are not applied to the purchase price.
Q Will a generator power an office container?
A 7500 watt generator should provide enough power for a 20' office container. A 10,000 watt generator should provide enough power for a 40' office container. Since electrical demands will vary by customer, we cannot guarantee that these wattages will be sufficient... they are listed merely as a guideline.
