Container Delivery Transport

DELIVERING CONTAINERS ON A TILT TRAYtruckTILTred

redtickThis is the most common delivery method for 10’ and 20’ shipping containers
redtickAlthough side loader delivery is most common for 40’ containers, we also have a super tilt tray service for delivering 12m containers via tilt tray.
redtickContainer delivery via tilt tray requires plenty of space in front of where you need your container.
redtickA tilt tray delivers containers much like tow trucks off load vehicles, and tip trucks delivery goods.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS
1 – The driver will assess the site to ensure the safety of all persons in the immediate vicinity.
2 – The tilt tray reverse’s up to the area you have prepared for the container. When stationary, the tray will lift up and slide back until the container back 2 corners are on the ground.
3 – Once the containers back 2 corners (on the ground) are baring the weight of the container, the tilt tray will drive forward (allowing the tray to slide out from underneath the container) leaving the container safely placed on the ground or footings.

Width Clearance – Containers are only 2,438mm wide externally. Allow 3 metres minimum for the trucks cabin and mirrors etc.
Height Clearance – Tilt Trays generally require 4.3 metres height to gain access to a site. When the truck tilts the container to off load it requires 6.5m in height.
Length Clearance – Once the Container slides off the rear of the truck, The truck needs clear room to exit the site safely. In most cases 12-14 meters for 20’ containers , (and 18-20 meters for 40’ containers) of clear space to manoeuver and drive away is sufficient
Lay down area The pad for your container needs to be level and dry. If the container is not level the container doors will be very difficult to operate.
Container footings – It is important to have air flow under the container to avoid moisture and condensation build up. Footings are not necessarily required If you are able to provide a raised, hard stand, dry area for the container to be delivered onto. If this isn’t possible we strongly suggest the use of footings to keep the container raised off the ground.  The best footings are treated hard wood timber (railway sleepers from your local nursery will do the trick), you can also use concrete blocks or car tyres.
Ground conditions – Trucks are heavy. Trucks with containers on the back are even heavier. It is critical the driver is provided with dry, firm level access in and out of your site. Ideally sealed or hardstand (compacted) roads. If this is not available, it is up to you to inform us at time of enquiry. If the truck gets bogged or sinks on your site recovery costs will be the liability of the customer.

2 – A side loader drives into position and then offloads to the driver’s side of the truck, the container once grounded will sit approximately 500mm from and parallel to the trailer.
