Moving A Storage Container | Shipping Container Movers
There are a few ways to transport a shipping container. One of the easiest ways being a container trailer however, due to backups in the port its very difficult right now to secure a container trailer. With We Will Transport It, we like to think outside the box and have come up with some effective and efficient ways to not only make our customers happy but can save them money along the way. Being that container trailers are scarce and are limited to how effectively they can load and offload heavy containers, we have found that dispatching a step deck trailer and assisting our customers in finding reputable and credible 3rd party loading companies, which will be rotator trucks, heavy duty wreckers, and forklifts can often save our customers money. This helps us provide faster service since step deck trailers are more accessible.
One thing customers should be conscious of is how much space will be needed to load a container. Accessibility is key. Terrain, weather, and areas with little or no space could require additional 3rd party assistance in order to efficiently load the container onto a trailer. Customers would need about 50ft of space on one side of the container and about 100ft in front.
Cost Of Moving A Storage Container
The cost to move a shipping container can vary depending on several different factors. Some of these factors can include the size of the container (40ft or 20ft), the weight, contents, eg: household goods, hazmat, equipment or freight. The cost of transporting a 40ft container 2,000 miles depending on some of these factors can be anywhere from $4-5 a mile plus loading and offloading which can range anywhere from 400-750$
A 20 ft container on average to ship can be anywhere from $2.50-$3.0 a mile. In the logistics industry, location plays a big role in the pricing meaning rural areas can cost more especially when 3rd party loading/offloading companies are involved.

The science behind moving a storage container
For international shipment of goods and commodities, entities and people usually go with container transport. Container transport usually takes sea routes for transportation. The cargo you want to ship is safely packed inside these containers and takes a long journey without ever being touched. These containers come in standard sizes. They are robust and are very effective at enduring long trips.
These storage containers can easily fit in trailers and trains to add rail and road transport as an option in transporting them. Shipping container movers choose the best means of transportation. This choice depends on the nature of the goods being shipped as these containers can fit into any transport method being used.
Using shipping containers has also proven to be very efficient in achieving economies of scale for many companies. Shipping container transportation is highly safe, and your goods travel securely. Shipping container movers bring considerable advantages to international trade by cutting down transport costs, and there’s no damage to the goods either, so those costs are saved too.
