Construction Jobsites
Common Obstacles:

  • Fences
  • Access to drop point
  • Is site level?

Store Parking Lots
Common Obstacles:

  • Cars parked in the way

Small Business, in the city
Common Obstacles:

  • Cars Parked in the way

Lane Delivery
Common Obstacles:

  • Overhead wires
  • Access (can our trucks make the corner into the lane)
  • Is there enough room for our trucks outriggers
  • Bylaws
  • Trees/ bushes/fences

Driveway Delivery
Common Obstacles:

  • Overhead wires
  • Access limits
  • Typically non-standard delivery for cranes because they cannot offload directly next to the truck
  • Containers settle into asphalt if left for any period of time without dunnage underneath (leaves imprint)
  • Trees/ bushes/fences

Lawn/Backyard
Common Obstacles:

  • Is the lawn wet? Our trucks can get stuck and/or tear up the ground
  • Access
  • Trees/bushes/ fences

Standard Container Delivery

Loading/Offloading Spot

Access– size of container changes the size of crane needed. Getting the crane in and out requires planning.

Ground– soft, loose, , muddy, uneven ground may not be suitable for crane due to weight distribution.

Clearance– Height of lowest point of route that has been considered to get to loading/offloading spot will affect overall height including vehicle and container.

Traffic– Busy streets and flagged traffic can change the timing for ideal operating hours.

Lift

Weight– empty/loaded/modified containers will require different crane capacity.

Reach– distance between loading/offloading spot and landing spot can be calculated measuring between turret of crane and center of landing spot. Needed reach and weight directly affects the capacity of appropriate crane size.

Clearance – height of overhead wires, trees, gates, ceiling changes the type of crane needed.

Obstacle – height and length of obstacle between loading/offloading spot and landing spot need to be provided. Obstacle’s distance from loading/offloading spot and to landing spot also need to be measured. Fences, walls, vehicles, other containers are common obstacles.

Landing Spot

Angle to truck– (perpendicular or parallel ) angle of container changes the distance to center of container which is the reach of lift.

Level– if container cannot be leveled by putting a few inches of wood block, building a platform may be advised to customer. Otherwise, doors may be difficult to open.

Ground disturbance – damaging grass, leaving marks to asphalt and other types of ground disturbance should be considered since CW cannot be held responsible.

Height – If container is placed above the ground on a platform or on top of another container, it has to be indicated before booking the crane since it affects the required capacity to fulfill the task.
