How to Offload a Transit Shelter

Mardan Fabrication aluminum shelters such as transit shelters are a popular item because they are extremely light in weight and do not rust or deteriorate under harsh weather conditions. When purchasing the transit shelter, all you’ll need onsite is a standard forklift to offload and set the shelter. Use the forklift to get underneath the mounting skid in order to offload it from the truck. Once it’s offloaded from the truck, forklift the shelter to the final installation location and place it on the concrete pad. Making sure that everything on the site is correct, go ahead and lift up the shelter and remove the mounting skid so you can lower the shelter directly on the concrete slab. The shelter will need to be level so shimming may be necessary. Once its level, go ahead and anchor the shelter into the slab. The size of the concrete slab and anchor size should be determined by a local engineer who is familiar with the local code requirements.
