Guys,
Does anyone out there in the Texas / Louisiana areas know of a trucking company that has a container sideloader.
That is a trailer that has a crane type setup at each end that lifts the container on and off the trailer and places on the ground next to it
In Australia they are a dime a dozen but I cant locate one in the States.
I have a race car (dragster) in Louisiana that I need to get the container off the trailer onto the ground to allow for easy loading.
If this isnt an option what about a roll on off arrangement.
Let me know
Thanks

A good size hd wrecker, or a rotator should be able to pop that off no problem.

SO OPEN THE DOORS AND ROLL IT ONTO A FLATBED
OR AS STATED , A ROTATER WILL LIFT A CONTAINER
JUST GET THE CREDIT CARD OUT AND $800+ WILL GET THAT BOX ON THE GROUND

I'm pretty sure a rotator will have no issues getting a 40' container off the trailer.

Have any of you seen these side lifters the OP is talking about? I know what they are, I have used one, but just curious to know if you all know

why not just find someone with a roll back , put the digger on the roll back , back it up to the container and then push it in ?

They are called Top Loaders. Unless you are at a port or a company who supplies containers and chasis you will not find a top loader. Take the container to a warehouse that has a dock and ramp that leads to the ground. That's your cheapest solution.
