In addition, we require the containers to include the following:

  • An all wood floor in good condition
  • Lash rings at top left and right side to hang liner tight to ceiling.
  • Metal bar channel at front and rear door to place metal bars to secure load (2-1’/4″ channel).
  • Front lash ring or bar at ceiling to support bracing.
  • No holes or sharp indentations that may cause holes in the liner.
