How do I move a steel container?

Postby john9159 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 10:50 pm

I'm on an allotment site where we had a 20ft x 8ft steel container delivered about one year ago by the Local Authority. This was temporarily dropped in one place with a view to moving it to a more suitable and final position.
The LA now say they can't afford to hire the equipment to relocate the container so my problem now is how do I move such a thing with relative ease and minimum cost?
The container is from the Falcon range as supplied by Eagle Containers.

My thanks to any helpful and practical advice.

Simply Build It

If its the type of container you get on the back of lorry's? I would possibly have a look at getting something like a car jack & sliding some scaffold tubes or similar underneath to slide/roll it on. You will still need 1/2 a dozen fit body's to do this.
