Swing-lifter/slide loader

Another method suitable for transporting both 20’ and 40’ containers is by using a Side Loader, also known as a Swing Lifter. The container is swung, or lifted off, on the driver’s side of the truck, then placed directly beside it. The truck requires access of at least 6 metres wide and 19 metres long, with a height clearance of 4.5 metres.

Both of these methods have their place in container transportation, depending on the available access area.

Rail transport

We can organise transport via rail to most areas of Australia, as required. Please note that current requirement of both QRail and Pacific National is that all containers requiring transport by rail are to have a current CSC plate prior to transportation. This is similar to having a roadworthy certificate for a car.

A CSC plate on a container states that it is of sound structural integrity and able to travel via rail or ship within a particular period of time. Our team can arrange for your container to be surveyed by an independent surveyor and certified for transport. The minimum travel period is six months with a maximum of 24 months. The length of time is often dictated by the standard of the container. Most B Grade units would be suitable for CSC plating lasting approximately 12 months.

Overseas transport/shipping

If you’d like to purchase your container, we can organise a suitable container for shipping overseas. Please note that we do not send rental units overseas. As with the national rail requirements, units must be plated either with CSC or IICL plates for overseas shipping.

If you only require the transportation of your goods overseas, and do not plan to retain the container at the other end, we suggest you contact a freight forwarder to assist with your requirements.

We rent containers to individuals for a number of reasons. Whether you need additional storage space for household furniture and goods, or you’re moving house, we can help you store away items that are not regularly needed. We also offer secure and convenient storage for cars, boats and machinery.

Our shipping and storage containers are available at wholesale prices to clients throughout Queensland and Northern New South Wales. With our bulk buying capacity and distribution of such means, we are proud to offer our clients the best prices available. Please get in touch with our team for information about wholesale containers.

Commercial storage services

We supply units to many companies, both large and small, including those in the development, building, plumbing, and electrical industries. The units allow companies to have an easily movable secure storage facility on-site.

We also supply to retail businesses that may need storage during busy periods, when excess stock is present. This may be around the holidays and seasonal markets, or when bulk buying for greater profits.

Government storage services

At All Direct Container Sales Pty Ltd, we supply containers to many government departments, including Correctional, Housing, Environment, Building Works, and Mining. As a preferred contractor for the Queensland Government Department of Public Works, we regularly supply units throughout Queensland for many organisations and construction projects, including schools, police stations and RSCPA facilities.
