So, raising a 40ft shipping container from the ground is not straightforward! Especially when it’s in a residential area without straight on access, when it was left without any chocks under it, and, when it is rather full (i.e. a heavy 40,180 lb). The pictures below are from the first attempt (snowing on the 18th Jan, and second successful attempt on 20th Jan made possible by use of a “wrecker” to lift and maneuver the container to allow the Landoll to get underneath.
Sneaking into the pictures you will spot our second shipping container (a petit 20ft) in the background up on its trailer – as yes – this is a 2 container family move!
Above the Landoll moves in for the first attempt – though not able to lift the container sufficiently with its own hydraulics.
Above, spot the second container in the background!

and the Landoll backs in underneath
Note for the boys: the Landoll’s rear wheels can move back and fore, and the bed of the truck can be lifted as seen above so that the very end of the bed reaches the floor. Its a great piece of kit!
Hmm, all agree thats a bit of an angle…
Good luck with the move ED! Great pics of the loading process!
as they said in the Castlemaine 4X advert – think you over did it with the sherry mate!
Wow! Hope everything and everyone arrived safely at the other end. Keep us posted!
