Although both a mobile Office Trailer and a ground-level office (GLO) are used as an office during construction and are a great way to add office space on-site, they have some differences. An Office Trailer is on wheels and can be transported from location to location using a tractor-trailer or an authorized vehicle with a ball hitch lock. An Office Container is made out of a steel ISO shipping container and provides a rugged exterior for an additional level of security. An Office Container must be empty but can be moved by Dear John Inc.
The office trailers require 220 Volt, single phase, 100 amp service. Your electrician can easily provide this to the electrical panel in the trailer.
Our containers come in 40′ and 20’ lengths. They are delivered on flatbed vehicles where the container slides off like a dumpster. The side with the doors can face either way on the delivery vehicle. The 20’ containers and 10’ containers are delivered on a straight, one-piece flatbed truck that is approximately 28’ long so the truck would need a relatively straight shot of around 50’ in order to drop a 20’ container and about 40’ for a 10’ container. The 40’ storage container is delivered on a tractor-trailer combo unit that is approximately 70’ feet long. This vehicle would need about 100’ feet of a straight shot to deliver a 40’ container. Also, because of the configuration of the delivery vehicle, the site needs a fairly wide driveway in order to enter the property.
While a Storage trailer sits 52″ off the ground, can be brought to a loading dock and moved on-site, a portable storage container is ground level providing the ability to walk right in. The 20’ and 40’ Containers cannot be moved while loaded.
We recommend changing your Office Trailer’s air conditioning filters every 60 days under normal weather conditions, and every 30 days under extreme conditions.
While both pipe rack and shelving in containers are an excellent way to keep your container organized and preserve floor space, they serve two separate purposes. Container shelving is comprised of 3 levels. The Shelving inside the container is best used to organize boxes and parts. Pipe racks have 4 levels of angled steel. These are perfect for storing pipe, electrical lines, conduit, and other items you wish to hold in place.
Dear John Inc is happy to quote OSHA-approved steps for your job site trailer rental.
A king Pin lock fits over a trailer’s kingpin and prevents an unauthorized tractor from pulling up to your trailer and driving away. A glad hand lock slips over a trailer glad-hands and seals the airlines to prevent an authorized company from moving the trailer. We recommend using both locks to provide an additional level of security against the theft of storage trailers.
