How to Move Your Own Shipping Container
Tilt Bed Trailers
Tilt bed trailers are one of the most effective and safe ways of hauling a shipping container, especially if you’re moving the container 200 miles or less. This will usually cost anywhere from $300-500 if you stay local and $1500+ if you are traveling long distance.
When choosing this option, you will need to ensure there is enough space for the trailer to safely back up and enough clearance height when the trailer tilts its bed back during loading/unloading.
The best thing about using this method is the container can be offloaded quickly and easily without the use of cranes and forklifts. It is worth noting though, that if you have contents inside your container during the time of moving, they should be secured or fastened as they might otherwise move around during transport and loading/unloading.
