What can you expect from your container haulage services

Container Haulage Services

Container haulage isn’t as simple as hiring a lorry and moving the goods from one location to another. There are strict legal requirements regarding the transport of items, including things like the right kind of container, insurance, and having trained drivers. So what is a haulage service, and what can you expect from the Haulage company you choose to use?

What is a Haulage Service, and how does it work?

Simply put, a haulage service provides Container transport for those larger shipping containers that are not transported easily. A haulage company has the ability and legal requirements needed to transport all container sizes using specialised lorries designed to securely hold on to the shipping containers throughout their journey and load and unload at the beginning and end of the trip. 

Containers aren’t just used to transport cargo – they can also be perfect for business premises, warehouses, factories and more. If you are struggling to find a building that suits your requirements, you could consider using one of Jennings containers choices as part of your building here in the UK.

Many companies choose to buy or hire a shipping container to have it on-site. This means it’s more easily accessible and sensitive items can be stored in close range of the offices. A Container Haulage company will be able to deliver your shipping container to your address safely and efficiently, reducing your worry and hassle to organise and execute the project. 

A trusted Haulage service will be FORS registered operators, meaning they are legally able to transfer large containers safely. By being FORS registered, you can be assured that your chosen company provides a higher level of quality and demonstrates best practices in the industry with efficiency, safety and environmental awareness.  

Once you have chosen your container size, your chosen haulage company will provide the most appropriate sized vehicle to transport your container to its destination. Most lorries are equipped with cranes that will unload the container into the space required.

Frequently Asked Questions about container hire in Oxford 

How to chose a Haulage Company to support your needs

When choosing your container haulage company, there are several things to consider. Be clear on your requirements for hire. Do you need your containers delivered to you, or do you need some delivery help? Think about if you have all the necessary equipment to start work inside the container or if you’ll need some extra kit. Things like that can affect whether it makes more sense to hire or buy your shipping containers, and they should inform your decision when choosing your container haulage service.

To have a hassle and worry-free experience from choosing your container to it arriving at its destination, it is always worth considering an effective solution in the form of a company that can provide both the container itself and the haulage specialism. Having a wrap-around quality service means that the company will support obtaining the correct sized lorry to deliver, and you don’t have to worry about the technical side.
