The Dangers of Loading Your Own Shipping Container
Loading a shipping container is labor-intensive and requires experience. You may want to load it yourself to save money, but chances are you’ll end up spending more.
The work requires trained and experienced workers. It’s challenging and with many dangers, but when you hire qualified workers, you’ll not only avoid the risks but also save time and money.
At Tough Yakka, we do all the tough work for you. We’ll provide you with all the workers you need for safe and on-time shipping container loading.
Why You Should Not Load Your Shipping Container
Risk of Injuring Yourself
You risk injuring yourself when loading a shipment container without the required experience. If there are moving objects, they can trap you. Also, open containers are loaded from above, and falling is a considerable risk.
You Might Injure Others
If you’re using equipment such as a forklift or crane without adequate training, you might make a mistake and injure someone. Goods can slip and fall on someone, injuring them or, worse, result in fatalities.
Potential Damage to Your Goods
Some goods are fragile and should be handled carefully. Others, even if not so fragile, can also get damaged during loading. The damage results in losses and potential delays.
Overloading the Container
Every container has a maximum capacity, which it should not surpass. Containers are weighed before they’re loaded for shipping, and if yours is overloaded, you’ll be required to unpack and reduce the weight.
That means extra work and potential delays. Instead of all the hassle, why not hire qualified workers for shipping container loading services?
Wastage of Space
It might not seem like it, but shipping container packing and loading is a skill you learn from years of experience. If you pack them wrongly, you might end up with unutilised space. But with skilled loaders, the space will be used as required.
