How is this container delivered?

We take the hard work out of shipping container delivery

We deliver shipping containers all across New Zealand. When requesting a quote, just let our team know if truck access could be difficult, and note down any potential obstructions – like trees or power lines. On the day, make sure the access-way is clear, and that all pets and kids are safely out of the way. Then we’ll take care of the rest, with one of three delivery options.

SCF Shipping Containers - Delivery Method - Hiab Crane

Hiab Crane

Hiab cranes lift containers from a mechanism located behind the truck's cabin. This is used when there is limited space for a side loader or tilt tray. Using a crane means the container is easily positioned at an angle or up on a raised area. It can also be used to place containers over a fence or other obstacles.
