Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an Office trailer and an Office Container?

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.

What are the electrical requirements for your office trailers?

The office trailers require 220 Volt, single phase, 100 amp service. Your electrician can easily provide this to the electrical panel in the trailer.

How much room do I need to fit a Storage Container or Office Container on my site?

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.

What is the difference between a Storage Trailer and a Storage Container?

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.

How often should you change the air conditioning filters in an Office Trailer?

We recommend changing your Office Trailer’s air conditioning filters every 60 days under normal weather conditions, and every 30 days under extreme conditions.

What is the Difference between container shelving and container pipe rack?

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.

When hooking up an Office Container or Office Trailer with a Bard unit what is the correct voltage?

  • If incoming voltage is less than 216V, the Primary Power Tap at the transformer must be changed from “240V” spade to “208V” spade.
  • Failure to do so will cause control voltage of 18v or less, which will cause erratic (or NO) operation in the contactors and relays.
  • Will also cause thermostat failure. Please have an electrician wire your Office Container to ensure safe & proper electrical hookup.

Are stairs included with your Office Trailers?

We offer storage stairs for easy access into your Storage Trailers. Dear John Inc is happy to quote OSHA approved steps for your jobsite trailer rental

What is the difference between a king pin lock and a glad hand lock?

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.
