Container Transport Loading Options
There are 3 common methods used to safely load a shipping container onto and off the transport vehicle tray. The method we recommend at both the pickup and delivery site will be determined mainly by the access possibilities at each point.
The side loader method utelises two large arms and, as the name suggestions, effectively lifts and places the container off the tray and onto the ground beside the truck. This option has a number of benefits, in that the container can be lifted from or placed into a relatively tight space. It does however require sufficient space next to the delivery truck.
If Freight Quote will organise your container delivery by either of the above two methods, it’s important that you specific in advance which way the container doors should be facing on the truck – either to the rear, or to the front.
Hiab or Crane:
When requesting your container transport, it imperative that you specify whether the container is empty, or (if loaded) what it contains, and the total estimated weight of the goods inside the shipping container.
