What is a bedding box?

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

What types of material do bedding boxes hold?

Bedding/rock boxes can be filled with gravel, stone, rocks, dirt and more.

These boxes can hold any worksite waste or materials, as well as whatever you need to keep your site clean and safe. Reach out to your United Rentals for trench safety support to better understand the best uses for bedding boxes and help determine which may be best for your jobsite.

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. 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.
