Need to transport a Shipping Container? We offer a range of container transport services to help you move a new or used , full or empty shipping container from A to B to C.
When you hire or buy a shipping container from ABC, we can usually organise delivery within 48 hours. Transport charges are dependent on the kms traveled and the fuel levy applicable at the date of delivery. Transport is usually arranged within 48 hours of purchase/lease but is dependent on availability and location.
When preparing for a container to be delivered it is important that there are no obstructions at the delivery site i.e. height restrictions, overhanging branches, electrical wiring, uneven surfaces, etc. as any delays will result in additional transport charges or an inability to offload the container/s. In addition, be sure to observe council regulations by having the container placed away from public utilities, storm drains, septic tanks and set back space from the roadside.
You have the option of choosing between three types of trucks available in the metropolitan area. The type of transport used to deliver your container will depend on a number of factors which we can discuss when purchasing/leasing your container. Below is a basic overview of our truck types.
Example Container Delivery
Pictured here is one of our 40 foot High Cube shipping containers modified to include 3 roller doors being transported out of the ABC Containers yard to a WA destination. The type of truck is a side loader, in that the vehicle will drive adjacent to the target placement area, lift the container up and place it to the right hand side of the truck. With this in mind, it's a good idea to consider your target placement area and ensure the access to the left hand side of that area is clear for the side loader to drive in, unload and drive out.
