Our refrigerated containers are delivered by a lorry with a hiab crane attached to it. With the crane the driver can place the container into most positions quite easily and safely. As long as there is sufficient access for it to get onto site.
The lorry that delivers the refrigerated container will be between 30ft and 50ft long. It is also nearly 10ft wide, so will need plenty of room to access and manoeuvre on site.
The site will need to be hardstanding as the lorry will not be able to drive on grass or muddy areas. Any delivery not on hardstanding will need to be assessed and agreed prior to delivery. The container will also need to be delivered immediately to the side and parallel to the vehicle. This is due to a limited reach of the crane, a bigger crane can be arranged if required, but will be costly.
The lorry will need space to lower stabilisation legs. It will also need plenty of overhead space with no cables or obstructions for the crane. If you think there may be any possible issues with this we are able to do a site survey in advance. We also require a delivery questionnaire to be filled out prior to delivery. This is to help assess access and whether a site survey may be necessary.
Please also be aware that our refrigerated containers come with a hardwired 10 meter cable. The cable has a five pin plug on the end. You will need a five pin 3 phase socket within 10 meters of where you plan to site the container. The cable comes from the motor which is on the opposite end of the container to the doors. Please be aware of this when planning where you will position the container.
You will also need to leave as much space at the motor end as at the door end. This is to allow plenty of room for the air to flow into the motor and enough room for the commissioning engineer to set up the unit. The lorry driver will carry RAMS with him should they be required and they can be supplied in advance, just let us know.
