Re: how to move shipping container to corner without crane?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @prakashlama1997. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about moving a shipping container.


That sounds like a job for the professionals. Moving the container on soil is next to impossible, even with heavy equipment, as it will simply dig in under its own weight. You'll need to find a company that can jack it up onto blocks and use machinery to push it into position. The other option might be to have an electrician come in and disconnect the power line whilst a crane hoists it into position.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
