5 Considerations for Choosing a Container Moving Company
Choosing a shipping container mover can feel like a challenging task when cost, timing and security need to be considered. We at ContainerMovers.com want to make the process smoother, easier, and less stressful by sharing the following steps to take when choosing a container moving company. Do your due diligence when hiring or choosing a container moving company and be rewarded with less stress and worries. There are several important considerations to keep in mind, and here are five key factors to consider:
Container Moving Company’s Reputation and Experience:
Look for a container moving company with dedicated customer service, a strong reputation, solid track record, and years of experience in the industry. Consider how long the company has been in business and their experience, specifically in ground-to-ground container moving. Read reviews, seek recommendations from friends or family, and research the company's track record. An established company with positive customer feedback is more likely to provide reliable and satisfactory services.
Container Moving Company’s Licensing, Proper Motor Carrier Authority and Insurance:
Ensure that the container moving company holds the necessary federal licenses, which includes a Surety Bond, plus contingent auto and liability insurance, which are required for container transportation. Check if the company has the appropriate insurance coverage to protect your container and its contents during transit. This is crucial to safeguard against any potential damage or loss.
Container Moving Company’s Equipment and Infrastructure:
Assess the company’s equipment and capabilities. They should have well-maintained trucks, specialized container-moving equipment, such as sidelifters, and an efficient logistics system. Verify that they have the capacity to handle and transport the size of your container, which are typically found as 20’, 40’, 45’, 53’, Standard 8’6" high or High Cube 9’6” high sizes. How adaptable is the company you're working with? Many movers are limited in flexibility of equipment and capabilities. Will the moving company show up without researching the job requirements or jobsite conditions just to find out they have the wrong equipment and then charge a dry run fee?
Container Moving Company’s Cost and Pricing Structure:
It’s important to consider not only the transportation cost but also the related services, such as loading, unloading, and any additional fees. Also consider their expertise and professionalism. Are the details of the load explained? Are the ground conditions safe and ready for the equipment? Is the correct equipment selected for the job and site? Is the container moving company willing to educate and work with you to minimize stress and provide value? Look for a container moving company that provides transparent pricing and clearly outlines the services they offer.
Container Moving Company’s Customer Service and Communication:
Effective communication, such as asking for photos to make sure they can complete the move, is crucial, and a responsive company will be helpful throughout the container moving process. Look for companies that have clear channels of communication, prompt responses, and a professional approach to customer service. Choose a company that is attentive to your unique requirements, thoroughly addresses your concerns or queries, and provides timely updates to ensure a more satisfactory and smoother experience.

Most Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get a shipping container moved?
There are multiple different methods, landolls, sideloaders, tilt-beds, and standard flatbed/step-decks. If you have an empty container, using a simple tilt-bed or a landoll would be the most cost-effective option. Using a container to move across the country? Anticipate cranes to load and offload your container and a flatbed to transport it. The “one and done” trucks do not travel long distances, so there needs to be a way to pick up the container off the ground and subsequently put it down on the ground at the destination.
What kind of trailer is needed to move a shipping container?
The most common trailer used to transport a container is a standard container chassis. These are primarily found transporting cargo in and out of ports and can be a little hard to come by outside of that area. Landoll’s are common, some can winch up to 35,000lbs. Sidelifters can level lift and transport loaded containers most efficiently without tilting the container. Tilt-bed trailers and drop deck trucks primarily move empty 20’s.
How do you transport a shipping container without a crane?
The most effective way to move a container without a crane or forklift is by using a tilted bed trailer, such as a Landoll, or a sidelifter. You will need to ensure that there is enough space around the container for either of these two options.
How heavy is a shipping container?
Typically, an empty 20-foot shipping container weighs between 3,970 - 4,850lbs and an empty 40-foot shipping container weighs 8,340 - 9,260lbs depending on what kind of container it is. But your container will tell you about the exact weight on the door.
