How to Load and Unload Water Tanks on a Trailer
All water tanks are made to withstand extreme pressure and hold tons of water. The dimensions and weight of most water tanks vary based on the type and specific manufacturer, design, and capacity. Most common tanks have a capacity of 100 to 500,000 gallons, an average diameter of about 50 feet, and an average height of about 130 feet. The weight usually varies, but on average, large tanks weigh about 10,000 to 50,000 pounds. Shipping such tanks requires correct loading and unloading by seasoned experts at Wide Load Shipping. When loading a water tank, our team will first determine the type, size, and design and pick a suitable trailer. The trailer driver should park it on a level surface with the parking brake engaged to prevent accidental movement, and the support team should remove all obstacles in the operation area. Appropriate lifting gear, such as a crane or forklift, is used to lift and center the tank to maintain stability and balance during transit. Once on the trailer, it is secured to prevent shifting or moving during transportation. Depending on the trailer, securing the tank requires the right equipment, such as straps or ratchet tie-downs, bolts, and brackets. When unloading the tank, the driver should park on level ground with the parking brake in place. The straps or tie-downs are released and removed carefully. Lifting equipment is then used to lift and remove it from the trailer.
