Craning Shipping Containers

Placing containers can be tricky business, especially if space is tight!

Lifting shipping containers

There is two types of crane lifts out there when it comes to craning shipping containers.

  1. Craning empty containers
  2. Craning full containers

The bad news, if you need number two, you need really heavy duty crane or forklift to pull this off like the ones you see in the shipyards. We do not have that size of equipment and it will cost you a small fortune to get it.

The good news, if it is number one, we can probably help you out. Weight and distance really matter here, and accessibility is key to keep your cost down. Make sure you know the size and weight of your container and how far you’d like it lifted from the crane.

Contact our crane specialists to see which crane might be right for your container lift.

What sets Braymore apart from the rest, are its radio remote controlled knuckle cranes. As you can see these cranes can get right in there to pick items up with the least amount of movement and sway. The crane operator can be right there beside the freight making sure it gets moved as safely as possible.
