Common Storage Questions

If you do not see an answer to your specific question, please contact us at 302-731-5566 today!

What size containers do you offer?

We have 8’W x 8’6”H x 20’L and 8’W x 8’6”H x 40’L.

How much does a container weigh?

20’ Containers weigh approx. 4900 pounds
40’ Containers weigh approx. 8300 pounds

Do you deliver to residential areas?

Typically, we do not deliver to residential neighborhoods. Our trucks are large industrial trucks that can have difficulty navigating through neighborhoods because of cars on the street, overhead wires, branches, landscaping, curbs, and septic tanks. However, we can view your address on Google Maps to make a determination if delivery is feasible.

Do you move loaded containers?

We do not move loaded containers. If you are moving residence, we suggest a company such as PODS, COWS, PackRat, or Units.

Do you have a rent-to-own program?

No, we offer monthly rental or purchase options.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept Mastercard, Visa, and American Express. We also can set your monthly payment on Autopay. You will receive a paid receipt that’s emailed monthly.

How do you deliver the container?

We use a rollback truck for the 20’ containers and a tilt bed trailer for the 40’ containers.

How much space do you need for delivery/pick up?

To deliver a 20’ container, we require 75’ straight clearance and 25’ overhead clearance to accommodate the tilting of the trailer bed.

To deliver a 40’ container, we require 125’ straight clearance and 25’ overhead clearance to accommodate the tilting of the trailer bed.

Can you deliver/pick up in a muddy field?

No. Please make sure ground conditions are level, solid, and dry.

Is there a minimum rental period?

We rent our units month to month. There is no prorating. The rental price is the same for 1 day, 10 days, or 30 days. However, you are not obligated to a one-year lease or longer. You simply schedule pick-up whenever you are finished.

How many months are in your year?

Unlike other rental companies, we use a 30-day cycle, invoicing 12 times per year. Most rental companies invoice on a 28-day cycle, invoicing 13 times in a calendar year.

Are my contents insured?

We do not guarantee or insure your contents.

Do I have to insure your container?

We require Damage Waiver Protection for a monthly fee. The Damage Waiver Fee can be waived if a Certificate of Insurance is provided listing Schneider Trailer & Container Rental as loss/payee in the event our unit is damaged while in your possession.

Can I buy a container or trailer?

We normally have units set aside for purchase. Different sizes, different conditions, different pricing.
