20Ft Shipping Container Transport

With the doors facing the front of the truck, this makes for easy access after the container is delivered and the doors will face the direction the truck drives away. With the doors facing the rear of the truck, this makes for easy access beside big buildings for access or for loading purposes.


20Ft Shipping Container Transport Costs

On average you will pay $160 to $200 for the first 20km and then from $3 to $5 per km thereafter plus GST when booking shipping container transport companies. Please note prices will vary between 20Ft shipping container transport providers.

Shipping Container Transport  FAQS

There are various methods for loading shipping containers on to a truck or trailer and it will all depend on how much access and room there is around the container. A sideloader can pull up parallel to the container and lift it straight on. A tilt tray can load a container when there is room in front of the container. If there is limited access you may need to use a crane or crane truck. It is important to note the access details, or even add a photo when creating your Truckit freight listing.
While weights will vary slightly, a 20ft shipping container weighs around 2,200kg when empty. A 20ft high cube shipping container weighs around 2,400kg when empty. A 40ft shipping container weighs around 3,700kg when empty. A 40ft High Cube shipping container weighs around 3,900kg when empty. A less common size, a 10ft shipping container weighs around 1,500kg when empty.

Brilliant, great Communication. I used Truckit to arrange freight of a Vintage Car Engine from Adelaide to Sydney. They were fantastic from the outset & provided multiple quotes and options. Item was delivered in 3 days - very fast. Thank You Truckit. Would Definitely Recommend.

    Right in the process of a complex and very long distance move across three Australian states. Truckit has made things easier - Definitely recommend.

  • Gordana S


    Great site to find a reasonable price

    A great site to find a reasonable price for transport. Truckit found someone fast, who could transport from Victoria to South Australia for a great price. You don't spent a lot of time waiting for customer service to answer, and are friendly and ready to help answer any questions you might have. I'll definitely use them again.

    Recommend to others

    I have to say I'm pleasantly suprised by how well this worked! I'm usually reluctant to use these kind of websites because you tend to get a lot of irrelevant spam - but I got a bunch of decent quotes with good reviews available. I would recommend to others and will use again in the future if I ever need to.
