How to Move a Shipping Container with a Flatbed Tow Truck
Shipping containers are used as construction offices, guard shacks, medical facilities, temporary classrooms and many other applications. But the primary use is as a storage container. They are seen on farms and ranches as tack sheds, grain and equipment storage, and some have turned them into workshops. If the operation is moved, so is the shed. What makes them so versatile is their construction. Heavy gauge structural frame at each end and top and bottom. The walls are corrugated heavy duty steel sheets. Strong and able to be modified to your use. Add a wall AC & Heater unit with windows and some flooring you have an office building. Use as is for storage and a 10-footer can be modified to be an excellent guard house. The military even used them as mobile medical units. Containers can be stacked for a two-story building and increasingly are used for homes. But when these humble but versatile units need to be moved, what do you do? Well surprisingly the answer can be the flatbed tow truck. A flat bed tow truck is a close analog to the dedicated Conex truck.
