Delivery Requirements

Delivery site should have an adequate terrain that is firm, leveled, smooth, and truck accessible. SF Intermodal unloads containers using our tilt trailer, so your trees can be at ease as we do not need them to unload. As long as your delivery site meets our minimum requirements we can set up the containers on gravel, ground, railroad ties, or wherever needed. We can help you decide what is best for your unique situation. Let SF Intermodal know as soon as possible if the delivery site recently had rain and you have a delivery scheduled.

(If SF Intermodal’s equipment gets stuck, you will be held liable to get our equipment out, even if that requires hiring a tow truck.)
