Transport is an important part of the service offered by Tropical Containers – ensuring our customers’ requirements are met from initial purchase to delivery.
Within reason we can get a container almost anywhere.
Your container can be delivered to your site using a side loader or tilt tray. This will ensure placement of your container exactly where you want it. We can also arrange interstate relocations by road, rail or sea, depending on your requirements.
Types of Transport
There are a number of types of transport we can use to get your container to its location.
Maxi Side Loader
A maxi side loader can lift up to 30 tonnes. It unloads to the drivers side only.
Mini Side Loader
A mini side loader lifts up to four tonnes. It loads and unloads to the driver side only and can only do a 20 foot container.
You can also use a tilt tray which is a winch on/slide off operation. Make sure to let us know how you want us to load your container – either with doors to the cabin or doors to the rear. This is important because your container slides off the rear.
Shipping containers should be placed on level ground, if not you may find it difficult to open and shut the container doors. It is the buyers responsibility to ensure the ground is adequately prepared and that you have the materials to make the container sit level.
