What to consider when buying/hiring or relocating a shipping container

If the container is full you will need to know the weight of the contents;

You will need to sign a container weight declaration form and fax or scan and email it to us before the tow can be booked. We can provide you with this document;

Is the container able to be easily accessed by our tow truck? Is there anything you can move to make this easier?

Do you also need crane hire? Have you co-ordinated this?

Are there any council regulations in your area regarding the use of shipping containers?

Is there easy access to your preferred site for our truck or will you need to budget for crane hire?

Can you provide a foundation for your container to make it easier for later removal? This can save you time and money when you go to resell your container or end your hire agreement.

Will you want your shipping container moved with contents in it? If so, you will need to complete a Container weight delcaration (available from the 1300TOWING office or you can download it from the link below). More information about why you need container weight declarations can be found on the Queensland Transport website.
