TILT TRAY DELIVERY

Tilt Tray delivery is an excellent and cost effective choice for delivery, where access and space is not strictly limited. In this method, the tray of the truck lifts up from the cab, allowing the container to slide in a controlled and safe manner slowly until the back edge is on the ground. The truck then drives forward, and the container remains stationary, continuing to gently slide lower down the tray of the truck until it is wholly unloaded.

10’ (3m) or 20’ (6m) container delivery

Space requirements:

  • Allow a tilting height of 5m for a 20’ container.
  • Allow a total Length of 20m, for a 20’ Container on a truck who’s maximum load is 1 x 20 container only.
  • Allow and a Width 3.5m for either 20’ or 40’ deliveries

SIDE LOADER DELIVERY

A Side Loader is the best solution for delivery when there is limited space in front or behind where the container is to be located. Side loader delivery is ideal when the shipping container is loaded to or from the delivery address. The truck drives or reverses beside the space the container will sit. The container is then offloaded onto the ground (on the drivers’ side of the vehicle only), and lands between the two out rigger feet of the side loader, parallel to, and approximately half a metre from the side of the truck.
