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.
