However, Murphy's Law may dictate otherwise, and you may one day encounter a dreaded feeble clicking sound or even nothing at all. Hopefully, after reading this article you will be able to avoid the stress, expense, and inconvenience of not being able to get where you want to go. A smidgen of knowledge can go a long way to help you avoid issues down the road.
So first thing you want to do to get started is to cut the flaps free at the top and the bottom of the box so the flaps remain intact. Find the seam where the machine glued the box together and cut along the crease originally made when the box was assembled. Don't bother trying to save the flap here as it usually tears the veneer from the corrugation.
One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
The next part I think is most important. That is having a good charge controller for our solar power system. This controls the amount of electricity that is flowing in and out of our storage unit. The charge controller will help us get the most out of our batteries. The reason I feel this is the most important part is the batteries are the most expensive part of our system. We need to buy ourselves a deep cycle battery for our storage unit. I like to make my storage unit a little large than I will need at the moment. So lets buy two batteries to start out. That way when my solar DIY project progresses I will not have to work on the storage unit again. I can concentrate on my solar panels.
With the price of electricity consistently going higher, the alternative energy solution is very interesting. Coupled with the fact of so many power outages throughout the country in the last few years, producing "your own power" seems like a good idea. Plus the governments 30% rebate for the cost of green power is a big incentive.
Loose pieces are not usually allowed by LTL carriers as a pallet provides stability from pieces bouncing around in a truck and getting damaged. This is usually just listed on the shipping documentation and confirmed by the carrier for acceptance. The items may have wheels and are loaded on the truck as they are. Pieces are also counted by how many boxes are being shipped or the number of objects inside a box.
