Landoll Service

Whether empty or loaded, a landoll is a type of trailer that winches the container up while the trailer is tilted. If loaded, the contents would be tilted- so it’s important to secure the load if this is how your container will be transported. These types of container moving trucks are perfect for short distances and relocations.

Mobile Crane Moving Shipping Container

Crane Service

Do you need to transport your container long distances? A crane is likely what will be doing the loading and unloading from the shipping container truck responsible for transporting it. We include an estimate of this in our quote if it is deemed necessary, and with your involvement we will arrange it for you to ensure that the process goes smoothly.


Sidelifter or Sideloader

These trailers are specifically designed for lifting and transporting a shipping container that is fully loaded. Its advanced level lifting capabilities ensure safe and efficient handling of your shipping container. This feature is crucial for maintaining container integrity during loading and unloading, reducing the risk of damage.

Conex Box?

History: The origin of standardized steel shipping containers dates to World War II, when commercial shipping operators and the U.S. military developed a way to efficiently ship goods overseas and across the country while keeping them safe.

The logistics method associated with this type of shipping was referred to as Container Express and abbreviated as “ConEx.” This abbreviation became universal and was later used to identify the entire category of shipping containers – eventually becoming a single term: Conex.

Conex boxes come in a variety of standardized sizes and capacities: 20-ft containers are the most common, followed by 40-ft, and then 10-ft containers and all are typically 8-ft wide and 8-ft 6-in tall.

Frequently Asked Questions of Container Trucking and Moving Companies

Truck transporting a shipping container

How do I get a standard 40-foot, or 20-foot shipping container moved?

Loaded or empty, how do you move a container? There are a couple different ways that are available depending on your specific circumstances. Loaded containers can be a complicated process that if done wrong can result in financial disaster. So how do they move these shipping containers? 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.

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.

What kind of trailer is needed to transport a shipping container?

The most common trailer used to transport and deliver 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 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.

Can I use a shipping container to move?

If you already have a container or wish to purchase one outright, then absolutely! Selling it once the move is complete is always an option. Renting a container to move would never be recommended, because the price you would pay to get it there would be the price to send it back to the original location.
