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.
