Sea Can Guy delivers 40 ft storage container

A local company sells the 20ft and 40ft containers, at a reasonable price delivered. We thought about getting one for a while, just never committed on it. So, since the containers where locally available, the next decision was to determine if delivery was possible to our location. Steep driveway and getting around a pre-existing building are the obstacles. They came for a site visit and said it was possible. A couple days later, they show up with the container. This video is a record of that delivery.
