Installation Steps and Requirements
What do I need to do before my metal building arrives for installation?
- Ma/./rk Utility Lines.
Mark any utility lines running underneath the planned installation site. If you do not know the exact location of any water, gas, or electric lines please call 811 to have them check and mark the lines free of charge.
- Prepare a Level Lot
Move earth if necessary to create a level installation surface. Sites must not be more than 3″ off to avoid any cut leg fees or other additional labor/return trip fees.
- Email Us a Picture
The installation of buildings upon concrete retaining walls or on shipping containers will be addressed on a case by case basis. Please email us pictures with a brief description of what you need.
- Clear Obstacles
Clear any and all obstacles in and around the installation site such as cars, recreational vehicles, debris to avoid a build over fee. Additional labor fees can be found on pricing sheets underneath additional options.
- Installation Room
Installation crews need a minimum of 36″ all around the building to fasten any wall paneling, end wall framing and trim.
- Have Payment Ready
Have payment ready before the arrival of the installation crew. A small unit such as 18X21 will only take the installation crew 45minutes to complete. Remember the installation crew could have more appointment after yours to complete.
- Safety Requirements
Any safety requirements must be disclosed to Metal Carport Depot before purchase of unit. We must be aware of any safety training or safety classes or videos our installation contractors must complete prior to installation. Such requirements must be noted on purchase order before it is submitted.
