Delivery of Shipping Containers

There are several issues that will need consideration prior to the delivery of a 20′ shipping container.

Direction of the Container Doors

You will need to advise which direction the container should be loaded onto the truck.
This will affect the direction that the container will face once unloaded from the truck.

Surface of the Site

In order to ensure the correct operation of your container or portable building (including the efficient opening & closing of doors), it is best to ensure that your container sits on a level surface. The containers are often best kept by being placed on sleepers or concrete pads. We can assist you in determining the best solution for your needs.

Safety is the Number One Priority

To ensure a safe & efficient delivery, it is important to advise Snowy Towing of any obstructions that may impede the process including overhead wires & overhanging branches however we are not responsible in organising solutions to these obstructions such as tree/branch removal or the local electrical contractor in the event overhead wires are required to be moved.

Tilt Tray Truck Delivery

Our tilt tray truck is ideal for delivery to many locations. The container is loaded on the truck in the direction requested ensuring the unit will be 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.
