SHIPPING CONTAINER TRANSPORT BRISBANE

Transmech can handle all types of shipping container transport throughout Brisbane, South East Queensland and interstate relocations.

We specialise in the handling and movement of shipping containers. Our container transport services cover everything from empty and lightweight to full capacities up to 32 tonnes. Our team can provide cost-effective and logistically controlled handling for your 8, 10, 20 and 40-foot containers.

When organising your shipping container transport, you need to consider the size and weight of the container, the site that it needs to be picked up from and the site where the container needs to be delivered to.

These considerations will determine the correct truck transport for your container;

TILT TRAY

A tilt tray is where the rear of the truck is capable of being tilted to ground level and the cargo is drawn on to the bed of the truck using a winch. The tilt tray truck is ideal for 6m (20ft) container delivery to many locations. The container is loaded on the truck, so that the container doors are in the correct position once delivered. The truck must reverse to the delivery point where the tray of the truck tilts to the ground & the container slides off the back.

Tilt trays have weight restrictions so are limited when moving full containers. We would require the weight of the container before booking in this transport option.

SIDE LOADER

A Side Loader is essentially a truck fitted with a loading system operating to one side for handling containers. The Side Loader truck delivers the container by picking it up from the trucks chassis at each end of the container and lowering it onto the site directly next to the trucks’ chassis. It is important to consider which way the container should be loaded onto the truck as it can only be unloaded from the right hand (drivers’) side. Would the driver need to reverse in to the property or can he drive straight in?

CRANE TRUCK (HIAB)

A Hiab is a truck that has a crane attached to it. They are adaptable vehicles, capable of pin point accuracy to deliver your cargo in difficult access areas. This delivery method is used when neither a tilt tray or side loader truck can access the site. Hiab delivery allows for containers to be delivered over obstructions such as up to 3m high fences. This service can be very useful particularly for Brisbane and inner city suburbs where you must negotiate the tight laneways and streets.

A container can be dropped at a 90 degree angle to the truck.

Hiab’s have weight restrictions and can only lift mainly empty containers. Converted could be an option, if assessment is done on the requirements
