Our standard installation includes welding the container to the steel embed plates in the foundation, sealing any seams, and utility connections between containers for multi-container homes. Once the home is complete, we will conduct a final walkthrough and cleaning. The final utility connections will be the responsibility of your general contractor.

Our standard delivery includes accessing your property and foundation location with our semi-truck and tilt bed trailer. Please keep in mind that our semi-truck and trailer are approximately 70 feet long, requiring ample maneuvering space. Once we turn into your driveway, the ground needs to be solid and compacted to prevent getting stuck. It’s crucial that we can back up to your foundation, tilt the trailer up, and drive out from under the home.

If your site does not meet all the requirements for standard delivery and installation, rest assured. We have extensive experience navigating more challenging sites. In most cases, special equipment, such as a crane, may be required to complete the installation, especially if we need to pick the containers up off the trailer(s) and place them on the foundation or negotiate a steep grade. If you have any questions or hesitations, we would be happy to schedule a site visit. During the site visit, we can determine the level of complexity and what special equipment will be needed so that you can be prepared for any additional costs.

We aim to avoid surprises arising once we arrive on-site because having to deliver bad news about potential delays or additional costs is something no one likes. Most site visits range from $1,000.00 to $1,500.00, depending on your location. We strongly believe in site visits, so we are willing to credit back half of the site inspection fee to your container home purchase when you sign your contract.”

Here are some quick tips to remember:

  • Roadways leading up to the property have at least 14’6” clearance from any low hanging objects.

  • Entrance to your driveway is approximately 40’ wide and solid; we will be delivering in a semi-truck. If the driveway entrance is not 40’ wide, then we need to make sure there are no ditches or dips on either side of driveway or on the opposite side of the road.
  • The driveway and/or path to foundation is solid with compacted gravel or a hard surface so we don’t get stuck. It is the customer’s responsibility to let CCL know if the property is too wet for delivery.
  • An open, unobstructed area around the foundation is critical so we can straighten our semi-truck with the foundation. We require approximately 150’ of almost level ground in the direction we will need to straighten out for unloading the home.
  • The foundation is fully cured. If it is not, CCL will need permission from your general contractor to go back and place your home on the foundation. 
  • For a standard delivery, make sure the foundation is not elevated more than 3” to 4” above grade. 
  • If your foundation consists of a crawlspace the standard delivery will not qualify. We will need a crane to place your home on the foundation.
