How is this container delivered?

We aim to make your container delivery on site as smooth as possible. Please notify us when getting a container quote if there are any obstructions like power lines near where you plan to place your container or if access for a truck is likely to be tricky. 

Also, please make sure that the area the truck will need to access is clear and that any loved pets and children are somewhere safe.

Delivery on site can be made using the following methods.

SCF Shipping Containers - Delivery Method - Tilt Tray

Tilt Tray

Tilt tray delivers a container off the back of the truck. Similar to a tow truck, the tray is mechanically lowered at an angle, and the container is slid off, with the truck moving forward at slow speed. This is the most common delivery method used for containers. Tilt trays are not suitable for sites with overhead power lines as the container height increases significantly when tilted.

SCF Shipping Containers - Delivery Method - Hiab Crane

Hiab Crane

Hiab cranes lift containers from a mechanism located behind the truck's cabin. This is used when there is limited space for a side loader or tilt tray. Using a crane means the container is easily positioned at an angle or up on a raised area. It can also be used to place containers over a fence or other obstacles.
