How To Prepare for Your Portable Building Delivery

Are you wondering how to get ready for the arrival of your new portable building? It’s a significant event, and proper preparation is key to ensuring everything goes smoothly.

In this guide, Allen Portable Buildings will explain the essential steps for portable building delivery, helping you navigate this exciting process with ease. Discover the convenience and versatility of portable buildings in Missouri and get ready for a hassle-free delivery experience.

Understanding Local Ordinances and Property Lines

Before your building arrives, it’s crucial to understand local ordinances and necessary building permits. These regulations can vary significantly, so checking with your local authorities is essential. This ensures that your new building complies with all legal requirements. 

Additionally, be aware of your property lines. Accurate knowledge of these boundaries when deciding where to place your new building is vital to avoid any disputes or legal issues.

Preparing the Site: Clearance Requirements and Foundation

You can do several things to get your site ready for your portable building delivery, starting with these steps:

  • Clear Pathway: The path to your installation site should be free of obstacles like branches, rocks, or equipment. Ensuring that your site is accessible for delivery trucks is crucial.
  • Horizontal and Vertical Clearance: Check for overhead obstacles such as tree limbs or power lines and ensure there’s ample side clearance. This is important for maneuvering large trucks and the building itself into position.
  • Concrete Foundation: A concrete slab provides a durable and level base. It’s ideal for larger structures or in areas with soil that might shift. You need to pour and cure the foundation before delivery.
  • Concrete Blocks: These are a versatile and cost-effective option for smaller buildings or temporary setups.
  • Wood Shims: Used for fine-tuning the level of your building, wood shims are small but crucial. They compensate for minor irregularities in the base and ensure your building is perfectly horizontal.

Each of these elements plays a vital role in preparing for your building delivery, ensuring a smooth installation and a stable, long-lasting structure.
