Empty shipping containers of this size can be delivered using a semitruck and flatbed trailer or a heavy-duty pickup that can pull a tilt trailer. After it’s unloaded, it can be moved around by a forklift. However, once it’s loaded to the maximum weight capacity, you risk damaging the contents by moving it yourself. In this case, using a freight company is a great option. Contact Storage Containers & Mobile offices today.
