Wouldn’t the bottom of the container get peeled open whilst loading too?

I was thinking of delivering empty containers. As you say, if not everything likely to be all down one end.
I guess it is like a lot of things, difficult to fit the first few times, but gets easier with practice.
I would have thought shifting containers would be a nice sideline. People are always buying them round here for storage and need them delivered from the docks. Crane lorry delivery can be quite expensive.

Most boxes have a pair of rails under 'em that'd run the rollers MB ..... if they're proper twistlock shipping containers ... storage units ??????? maybe not

Looks like basically you need an extra set of rollers and you are away.
Anyway, as I don’t have a hooklift I won’t be bidding, but I would be interested if I did.
