No. All containers are built to your exact specifications when your order is placed.
Frankly, because so many considerations go into choosing the correct container for each individual application, there *is* no “standard” container. Read the basics about all the different things you need to consider about creating a design to fit your specifications at Containers 101.
No. Streator Dependable builds to order and does not purchase used containers for resale.
Lead times will vary order-to-order, depending on the complexity of the product, availability of any specialty materials and the work load in-house at the time the order is placed. Six weeks from receipt of an order is a general standard lead time, but if the product is needed sooner, we will be glad to negotiate a shorter time. Ask one of our sales professionals what lead times are right now.
Yes. Because of the initial start-up costs, we generally require a minimum of at least 20 units, depending on the size and complexity of the product. If cost is a concern, we will be glad to recommend another design to meet the criteria, yet be more cost effective.
We design products for our customers as an added service of the project development. All rights to the design remain the property of Streator Dependable.
Not necessarily. We often use a “standard” design, so making dimensional changes is a minor part of the entire project. If a custom container will mean that you run your operation more efficiently or that you can ship more efficiently because of maxing out cubes in a container or truck, then you will be saving money in the long run.
