Shipping container wheels or casters

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a set of shipping container wheels to sell or hire? Or know of somewhere that does?

There’s a few options online, but will only be needed to move a container from one site to another, so if I can avoid buying new would be ideal.

Ive used the telegraph pole method but looking for something more manoeuvrable in a tight spot, with minimal ground damage due to a new screed floor.

It’s 20ft, maybe 22, but it’s in a barn with limited space for lifting inside and turning when out in the yard. Needs to move from one site to another.
We put it in with a telehandler using poles, but was thinking if it was on wheels it would save a lot of faff. The place it’s going into has just been built and I don’t want to make a mess of the new screed floor.

This type of tire wheel dolly is made from solid diamond plate steel with tough protective coated finish. Its 4 wheels can easy roll 360 degrees with much less force than is required with...


One on each corner, container weighs about 2 ton (it says on them the tare weight).

Stick them back on ebay when you are done and get most of it back
