Tanks and Pipeline Transport - Get a Quote Now, Call Lorraine on 010 880 7762

Tanktainer Transport and pipeline transport is a very tricky task as they are highly susceptible to damage or loss. The tanks themselves are heavy and long and it is difficult to manoeuvre them thus causing this to need specialised abnormal transport. A flatbed truck is used to transport tanks and pipelines, crane trucks are used for rigging and position the tank or pipe in its ideal location.

Sometimes it is also required to make use of extendable trailers, which means that it can either increase or decrease in size. This allows them to carry a wide variety of tanks and pipes without having to change trailers.
