ContainerWest Crane Truck

If you are looking for extra storage and would like to rent a sea-can to be delivered to your site, our on-site sea-can rental will be the best option for you as we offer delivery to our customer’s location. In terms of sea-can delivery, two types of trucks have offloading capabilities: Crane and Tilt deck trucks. Each type of truck has its offloading requirements, and we will choose the kind of truck to carry out the delivery depending on the condition of the customer’s site. Here we will discuss the offloading requirement for the crane truck and the tilt deck truck, so you can have a better idea of either choosing a crane truck or a tilt deck truck for delivery. 

Crane truck’s offloading requirements:

– Offload is right beside and parallels the deck of the truck.

– No reach.

– No obstacle.

– No overhead power lines.

Perhaps a Crane truck’s main advantage is that it does not require a lot of space to carry out the delivery, as it will lift the sea-can and lower it to ground level right beside the deck. Crane trucks are widely used for sea-can offloading in a city setting, where space is often limited.

 Tilt deck truck’s offloading requirements:

– At least 60 feet of straight runway is required for offloading 20’ sea-cans or less.

– At least 100 feet of straight runway is required for offloading 40’ sea-cans.

– No obstacles.

– No overhead power lines.

The Tilt deck truck has more turning capabilities than the Crane truck, and the offloading process is more straightforward. The Tilt deck truck is a go-to option for sea-can offloading, given that space is abundant to carry out offloading.

If you are not sure about the location, you would like your sea-can to be offloaded, will fit the offloading requirements of either a Crane or a Tilt deck truck, do not hesitate to consult us. You can let us know the offloading location, and our experienced logistic team will let you know if offloading could be carried out.
