20ft and 40ft Container Transport
see photos at end of page
In Australia and New Zealand we use a
specialised container truck invented in New Zealand
The container comes off the drivers side and for ease of
packing we can have the container placed on our trucks at the container
park with the container doors at the rear of the truck or the front of the
What specifications do we need:
No shrubs, trees, power poles at the placement of container just watch out for low power cables and if you want us to put container outside on the council strip (between your front boundary fence and the kerb of road) make sure there is no medium strip dividing the road.
We need a minimum of 24 feet in width where the
container comes off:
From the rear of the trailer back to the container there is 10ft / 3 m which houses the rear lifting arm plus generator to power the legs and the front and rear lifting arms.
These specialised trucks can transport 20ft and 40ft containers and for those interested in its weight lifting capacity try a legitimate 24 metric tonne rated gross 20ft container (that's cargo weight plus container tare) in fact they can go higher for those who have road transport permits.
We have a series of photo's for you to see, in fact there is an interesting photo of a trombone trailer, this where the trailer can be configured from 20ft to 40ft carrying capacity. You will also see that this truck can stack containers on top of each other and also take a container off another truck or rail wagon if required.
Fantastic transport system:
