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

NOTE: Max 9 tons


40’ (12m) container delivery

Space requirements:

  • Allow a tilting height of 6m for a 40’ container.
  • Allow a total Length of 40m, for a 40’ Container on a semi.
  • Allow and a Width 3.5m for either 20’ or 40’ deliveries.

NOTE: Max 9 tons

Site conditions may include (but not limited to) things like boggy, sloped, or uneven ground; overhead wires/tree branches/house eves/other structures; raised site for the container, and container stacking.

Easy Shipping Container Ventilation

WHIRLY BIRD & VENT KIT

Did you know that containers can build up a lot of heat in summer? With nowhere to go, this hot, moist air, is forced into goods inside containers. This is particularly a problem for any wood/paper products, upholstery, and stock feed; and can present a hazard for fuel driven machines. Conversely, in Winter, the colder air outside the container can condense inside the container and cause dripping moisture. The easy and cost effective solution? Our Whirly Bird and vent combo, to even out temperature inside the container, and allow the expulsion of trapped air.

  • Steel construction
  • Vermin proof mesh inside
  • Custom made frame mount (seals the whirly to the roof properly)
  • Easy to complete installation on site with 3 simple screws (cannot be mounted on the container for transport)
  • Efficient – self driven (no power required)
Whirly Bird & Vent System From: $550 + GST

SHIPPING CONTAINER SECURITY LOCK BOX

Containers come with aligning holes on their handles to easy accommodate a padlock for security. When someone tries to break into a container, unfortunately a padlock is quickly and easily removed with a set of bolt cutters. The solution? A security lock box.

  • Welded securely to fit over the door join when closed
  • Virtually  impossible to access a padlock inside the box with bolt cutters
  • Works perfectly with our slim profile heavy duty padlocks
  • You would need an oxy or alike to break through – a deterrent for most would be thieves!

SIDE LOADER DELIVERY

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.
