How much room is needed at delivery?

To deliver a 40ft container, the access area must be at least 10 feet wide and at least 120 feet long in a straight line. To deliver a 20ft container, the access area must be at least 10 feet wide and at least 80 feet long in a straight line. The access path and delivery site must be flat and clear of obstacles. We can not deliver a container or set a container on a hill. Be sure and check the access path to see if you have at least 14 feet of overhead clearance from the ground to the lowest point of anything overhead such as building overhangs, trees and utility lines.

What about my site?

The location must be level!!! A level surface is critical to the doors lining up correctly. If the site is not level, the container doors will not open and close properly. Containers are suitable to be placed directly on the ground as long as there is sufficient drainage. You can also lay concrete or gravel, or place railroad ties or blocks capable of supporting the container. A good rule of thumb on railroad ties or blocks is to place under each end and then additional blocks every 10ft or so. This point can not be emphasized enough, a level surface is a MUST.

What if when the container arrives, it isn’t what I expected?

The customer has the right to refuse delivery if for some reason the container does not meet the criteria requested at purchase. Our goal is to give you a realistic idea of what to expect. Please check out our sample photo gallery and have a full understanding of what you are getting prior to moving forward with the RTO transaction.

What if the container is brought to my location, but not delivered because my site is not ready?

If the container can not be delivered because the truck can not safely drop the container exactly where you want it, the customer will be charged for the trucking.

What if I change my mind, can I cancel the contract and delivery of the container?

Yes, you can! You can cancel your contract and delivery for free until the 48 hours before the container is scheduled to be delivered to the customer location. If you cancel after 48 hours before, there will be $150 cancellation fee.

FAQs

Do you check my credit?

There are NO CREDIT CHECKS with Rent To Own Containers (RTOC). Simply fill out an information sheet from one of our dealers and meet the required points total for approval!

Can I put money down?

RTOC does not accept extra money down, however, we can accept money upfront as Pre-Paid Rent. Do you require a deposit? RTOC only requires a deposit equal to one months rent. The deposit will be applied to your last months’ rental payment. First months rent and the deposit is required to be paid prior to delivery of the container.

Can I pay off my container early?

Yes! You can own your container early by paying off a percentage of the remaining balance of the contract. Please refer to the “right to pay early” section of your contract for more details. Can I move my container to another location? Yes, but only with approval by RTOC. You are responsible for the cost of moving the container. Please contact RTOC and we will assist you in finding a reputable delivery company.

What is the interest rate?

This is a rental contract, and thus this transaction is not considered a loan, so there is no interest or principal. Each payment is considered rent towards the total purchase price – over the term you choose.

What if I cannot afford to make my payments any longer?

You can terminate your contract at any time that you are current on your monthly rental payments. Simply call (940) 228-1599 and speak with a RTOC Representative, as other fees may apply.

What is the LDW and should I have LDW on my container?

LDW stands for Liability Damage Waiver. It is recommended that you have LDW coverage. LDW covers the remaining balance due on your contract in the event that the container is damaged due to certain circumstances out of your control such as tornado, fire or hail damage.
