Can you deliver a shipping container over a hedge or fence?

If our truck can get parallel and up next to one side of a normal sized hedge or fence (circa 6-9ft high) and if we are delivering the container directly the other side of the fence or hedge then this is usually possible

However this is not a straightforward job for us. we will normally ask if you can send in photos of the area you want the container as well as the area you see our truck sitting in well in advance of the delivery so we can make extra checks to ensure this will go smoothly for you.

We can offer to send a driver out to do a site survey for you, this is chargeable. in most cases a good set of photos sent into us can help avoid the need for a site survey.

Our trucks are not allowed to block or obstruct a public highway. We will commonly be happy to park in the road and lift over a hedge or fence only if you (the customer) can make provision for traffic to be managed or diverted whilst we undertake any lifting. You should always make us aware if you need to to block any road, or partially block any main road or busy central town or city road.
