Bedding / Rock Boxes for Rent

United Rentals offers specially designed bedding containers with tapered ends to improve the removal of bedding material and give your excavator operators better control. Available in 5-yard to 12-yard sizes, the bedding boxes — also known as rock boxes — feature low profiles for easy filling from either side and top frames with inner hardwood cores. These boxes are durably constructed to withstand the demand of rigorous construction environments and industrial spaces. They are equipped to hold rocks, dirt, soil and other site materials. If you need an open container for your jobsite, United Rentals is here with bedding box options to meet your needs.

FAQs About Bedding & Rock Boxes

What is a bedding box?

  • Bedding boxes are built to hold various materials, from lightweight to heavy-duty, on a construction worksite. By keeping construction sites clean and clear of debris, you eliminate obstacles that could cause accidents. Operators can fill the boxes with material that can be stored and used later to fill trench areas, and the boxes offer enough opening for a clean sweep by an excavator bucket.

What types of material do bedding boxes hold?

  • Bedding and rock boxes can hold whatever you need to keep the construction site clean as well as save material for later use. Fill these types of boxes with gravel, stone, rocks, dirt and more.

How do I know which box size to use?

  • The box size you need depends on the size of your excavation site and how much material you need to hold. The 5-yard boxes are best for small jobs, while the 12-yard boxes are ideal for medium to larger jobsites. We encourage you to consult with your site manager to decide on the best option for your site. We also encourage you to reach out to a United Rentals specialist for support to better understand the best uses for bedding boxes and help determine which may be best for your jobsite.
