Transportation of your moving container                                                                       

  • By far the most common method of transporting containers interstate or any long distance around Australia is by rail.

  • At each end of the move, we will need to transport the container by road.

  • The type of truck used to move your container will be determined by site access, the likely weight of the container and your preferences. 

  • We most commonly use tilt tray or slide trucks to transport our shipping containers. On some occasions, side loading trucks are also used
