What is a side-loader trailer & how it will benefit you?

A side-loader trailer is a self-loading trailer with two hydraulic lifting arms (cranes) to lift a container onto it. Our state-of-the-art swinglifter side-loader trailer allows for precise placement of shipping containers wherever accessible by truck, facilitating ground level loading or unloading with unmatched precision; particularly in hard to reach areas. It safely lifts and transports even fully loaded containers with a powerful 35-ton capacity. This versatile equipment handles both 20-foot and 40-foot containers, maintaining stability throughout the process. Ideal for moving large or heavy cargo effortlessly, it's a reliable tool in modern logistics—where safety meets strength and reliability.

Swinglifter technology excels in enabling seamless transfers to and from various platforms including the ground, container chassis', flatbeds, and rail cars.

Shippers benefit from this efficient system as we’re able to deliver loaded containers straight to your door and set it on the ground where you need it. The innovative approach taken by Container Movers ensures that container loading and unloading is carried out safely on solid ground. This method significantly diminishes injury risks associated with traditional lifting methods while eliminating wait times typically required for other types of heavy-lifting machinery to become available or when cranes simply will not fit.

Maximize Operational Productivity

With the ability to effortlessly handle road transfers using our advanced side-loader equipment - including transferring fully loaded containers without delay - Container Movers maximizes operational productivity. Our capability extends beyond merely hauling; we provide an end-to-end solution allowing us to manage entire fleets' worth of container pick-ups and drop-offs within a single cycle without relying on external lifting resources.

Shippers benefit enormously from this efficient system as we’re able to deliver loaded containers straight to your door. Here the recipients have the flexibility to unpack at their leisure which then enables shippers more freedom in scheduling subsequent deliveries or pickups—significantly increasing convenience and their overall operational output.

Ground-to-Ground Pick-up and Delivery of Shipping Containers

The value in utilizing a sideloader is found in its ground-to-ground, level-lifting delivery system. It eliminates additional logistic costs and the need for specialized loading areas. Our sideloader’s superior maneuverability and self loading trailer, allows them to move containers directly from the ground to the ground, a platform, a flatbed, or railcar, thereby providing flexibility and optimization in container logistics. If you have a container, loaded or unloaded, that needs to be relocated, with minimal tilting, we can make it happen.

Long-Haul Shipping Container Transportation Without Traditional Cranes

Replacing the traditionally high cost of hiring a crane, crane operator, and rigger, our sideloader trailer and truck efficiently moves containers from the ground to a flatbed for long-haul transportation. Although it might be more cost effective to use a flatbed for transports greater than 300 miles, we'll run anywhere in the country. Our sideloader trailer utilizes 2 crane arms that allows for self-loading or loading onto another chassis, thereby removing the logistical complexities and costs associated with crane equipment, operators, and riggers, as well as streamlining the entire container transport process.

Cost-Effectiveness Over Crane Operations

Utilizing a sideloader will prove more cost effective than a traditional crane, every time. Crane prices vary dramatically depending on the weight of your container, and the heavier your container is the bigger the crane bill will be. How is a sideloader different? Our sideloader's rate is the same, every time. For businesses or customers in need of shipping container relocation or Conex transportation, our price won't change based on the weight

Precision Placement and Level Loading

Our sideloaders offer precision placement of containers within 1/4-inch accuracy, whether containers need to be positioned next to each other, on blocks, or adjacent to a building. The sideloaders use of two crane arms creates four points of contact, ensuring level loading and transfer of containers. This contrasts with cranes that have one point of contact with a four-point sling, leading to less stability and potential swinging of the container.

Double Stacking Capability

Sideloaders go beyond standard container transport capabilities by allowing the double stacking of containers. Our advanced sideloader has extended arms, with the unique ability to reach over a container to either lift or doublestack another container. This is ideal for tightly confined areas. When you need to save time and money all while optimizing your space - our sideloader is your solution.

Container Movers doesn’t simply move your cargo; we elevate your business's logistical capabilities through innovative swinglifter, sidelifter side-loader services ensuring maximum efficiency across all facets of your supply chain whenever you require these specialized skills.
