Roll-off Delivery

With roll-off delivery, you don’t have to own or rent a container handler for delivery and placement. APS will deliver your container to your location and roll it off into its permanent location. We deliver your container using a “tilt bed” roll-off truck or trailer. Smaller trucks that typically deliver 10 and 20-foot units resemble medium-sized flatbed tow trucks. These trucks have fixed axles and vary in maneuverability but, as a general rule, require 60 linear feet straight back into the area where you need the container. After the truck pulls into the desired location, the driver will lift the front end of the bed and pull straight forward until the container slides off the truck and onto the ground.

Requirements for roll-off delivery:

  • Hard surface: Site surfaces must be clear, dry, and hard with no risk of vehicle or container sinking.
  • Free of obstructions: Delivery space must be free of overhead power lines, trees, and other obstructions. Delivery trucks need a vertical space of 16’ for delivery at its peak tilt.
  • Space to maneuver: Please ensure the delivery location has ample space for wide turns and is free of obstructions, such as gates and fences, that may interfere with the turning radius of our delivery trucks.
  • Space to Deliver: The length of our trucks and beds may be anywhere from 60 feet to over 100 feet, with a width of 10 feet. Please ensure your site can accommodate the dimensions of the delivery truck and shipping container, plus room for maneuvering.
  • If in doubt, send us pictures or a video of your proposed site. We will review it and make recommendations for a quick and reliable delivery.
