Can a POD be placed on a driveway that has a slight incline?
I called the POD company and was told the only way to know was to have them go to the location to inspect it.
Only problem is they wont come til I reserve the POD.
I have a standard driveway in Henderson Nevada and placing the unit in the street isnt allowed in my area.
How can I tell if my driveway is suitable?

I don't see why not.
Take a picture and send it to them. I'd think you could chock it regardless.

Few driveways are perfectly flat. They rent them everyday.... I'd think it would be a bigger concern for them then for you.....

The problem may be more with the composition and underlayment of the driveway than with the incline. Using a 7 ton truck to deliver a 1000 lb container onto a black asphalt driveway that sits on top of an earthen culvert may cause some expensive repair problems for the homeowner.

A neighbor had a 20' container placed on the hill in the street in front of their house. The driver didn't have any problems dropping it but he did when he returned several weeks later and tried to snatch it off the 20% incline. The steel feet/rollers on the loaded unit had sunk into the hot asphalt. The city sent 'em a bill for the repairs to the street.
