Delivery Options

You have a number of delivery options when you choose a 20ft shipping container. The most important thing to know is that you need to choose a delivery method that suits the access to your site or property.

A Tilt tray truck is the most cost effective delivery method, but you do need the space for the truck to drive out after it slides the container into place.

Using a HIAB truck – which is a truck with a crane mount on either the front or the rear of the tray, as the crane arm can lift and position the container into place very precisely.

A Sideloader is best suited where there is limited space in front or behind where the container is to be located. The container is offloaded onto the ground on the drivers’ side of the vehicle. When the container is unloaded it lands between the two outrigger feet of the side loader, parallel to and approximately half a metre from the side of the truck. Perfect for delivering or relocating heavy, loaded and heavy shipping containers.

Delivery can be organised within a few days, subject to transport availability. Each container is shipped directly from the manufacturer to our Sydney depot. Please note, some scuffing may occur during transport, which is typical due to the shipping process.
