Well you need somewhere to park it like a large driveway or check to see if you are allowed to keep it on the road. The container will be on a chassis (with wheels) and around 4 foot from the ground so you need to hire or make a loading ramp or have enough help to pass everything up into the shipping container. You also need to know that by packing and loading your own container you will be saving between $2500 and $5000 in packing charges! For more information about our shipping containers, click here. We also have information for container specifications, here.
