Smart Power

The 2018 QuickLoadz models are out. What’s the big change?

More power, easier starting.

We have switched to the newly released Kohler 38 HP Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) engine. We are the first OEM to get this engine.

EFI means the difference between your grandpa’s car and your car:
1) Better fuel economy
2) Easier starting
3) CARB state compliance

Everything you fight in your old fashioned carbureted engine engine is gone. Move to QuickLoadz. Keep up with the future.

Return of the Littlest QuickLoadz

We used to make a non-CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) trailer with a 16,000 lb GVWR. The littlest QuickLoadz. It was made for the mobile storage industry, for someone who wants to be able to move empty or lightly loaded containers without needing a CDL.

If you have a truck over 26,000 lbs GVWR you need a CDL. Or, if the truck GVWR and the trailer GVWR are over 26,000 lbs AND if the trailer GVWR is over 10,000 lbs you need a CDL. That is an important AND. So, you can have a 26,000 lb GVWR truck towing an 8,000 lb GVWR trailer and be fine. We used to make a two axle, four wheel, 16,000 lb GVWR trailer that people could pull with a pickup truck—a 10,000 lb truck plus a 16,000 lb trailer is less than 26,001 lbs, so it’s okay—but people constantly overloaded it. They would take a container full of plywood (the QuickLoadz would load it) then blow tires as they went down the highway. We stopped making the 16,000 GVWR trailer, which is too bad; I really liked it. You could still (literally) put a ton of stuff in the container and be fine. But it was a problem and not worth the risk of people constantly overloading it.

The 2017 16k Super 20 pictured with Galvanized Trailer Bed, Mud Flaps and Dragon Styling vs. the 2017 24k Super 20 pictured with Galvanized Trailer Bed, Mud Flaps and Dragon Styling.

After telling customers for a year that we no longer make a 16,000 lb GVWR trailer, the obvious solution occurred to me. Now if someone wants a 16,000 lb GVWR trailer, we just derate the 24,000 lb GVWR trailer. By derating the same trailer to 16,000 lb GVWR, they can pull it with a pickup truck, they still have eight wheels under them, and it is a lot less likely they will overload it, blow tires, and kill someone.

Europe is Ours

Okay, might be a little exaggeration.
But we have just received our EU patent.
Now we just need EU manufacturers, distributors, sales…

No-Winch, Automated Container Transport Trailers: QuickLoadz Launch

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA—November 10, 2013–QuickLoadz (“Move it. Move on.”) announced today the launch of trailer models featuring the company’s revolutionary, patent-pending container moving system. QuickLoadz trailers are the world’s safest trailers for container transport—no-winch and completely automated.

The new QuickLoadz trailers made their debut today at the NPSA (National Portable Storage Association) 2013 Conference and Tradeshow held November 10–12, 2013, at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

QuickLoadz diverse line of trailers offers something for everyone, with models available to move both 20’ and 40’ containers, empty and loaded. Pickup truck, semi-truck and truck-mounted products are available.

NO WINCH • NO CABLES • NO CRANE • NO DANGER

With QuickLoadz trailers, a single operator can move a container in three easy steps–without ever leaving the truck cab.

QuickLoadz trailers feature start-to-finish remote control hydraulics. All trailers also come  standard with a wireless rearview camera and a 7” Android tablet pre-loaded with QuickLoadz’ remote control app–compatible with any Android mobile device–and wireless rearview camera display.

QuickLoadz’ completely automated trailer design entirely eliminates the hazardous, inefficient winch/chain/cable system integral to old-fashioned container transport trailers.

With QuickLoadz, operators are never near the trailer or container during moving, removing them completely from ‘danger zones.’ Since QuickLoadz does the work of moving–not your operator–fast, efficient container moving no longer depends on skilled operators or extensive training.

More Standards That Matter

QuickLoadz trailers include the following standards:

  • 40 HP Engine: 2x the competition
  • No-Winch Design
  • Total Automation: Start-to-finish remote control hydraulics
  • Wireless Rearview Camera
  • 7” Android Tablet: With wireless rearview camera display and remote control app
  • Automatic Locking: Hydraulic locking means no straps, chains, binders are needed
  • Safe Operation

Loading Surface Protection

All QuickLoadz trailers feature Safe-Driveway Rear Rollers under the back of the trailer to protect the loading surface from damage. That means no more scratched driveways or dug-up ground cover.

“We think container transport trailers should be both durable and gentle on the container and loading surface–Only QuickLoadz is both!” says QuickLoadz Founder and CEO Sean Jones.

“Our rear rollers are unique to QuickLoadz’ patent-pending design and cannot be offered on competitors’ trailers,” explains Jones. “Why? Those companies rely on jamming the hard, fixed wedge on the back of their trailers between the ground and the bottom of the container to get the container lifted off of the ground.”

“This process of forcing the static wedge between the ground and the front of the box to get the container lifted wreaks havoc on the container, contents and the customer’s loading surface,” continues Jones. “QuickLoadz’ design eliminates all that.”

The company’s patent-pending moving process also ensures the most gentle moving process on the market and does not slam the container during unloading. This makes QuickLoadz trailers perfect for the mobile storage industry and companies with residential or retail customers.

Expanded Markets

There are already 20 million ISO shipping containers worldwide. They are the international standard for moving freight. Yet, in two decades, very little has changed in the design of container transport trailers–until now.

QuickLoadz is poised to revolutionize the industry by enabling ISO shipping containers to finally reach market potential.

  • Only QuickLoadz protects the container, contents and loading surfaces–making it ideal for residential and retail customers.

  • Only QuickLoadz can easily move loaded containers.

  • Only QuickLoadz is foolproof, truly automated and safe for the operator.

By transcending the limitations of other container moving systems, QuickLoadz trailers are the most versatile on the market by far, significantly expanding markets for mobile storage, container storage, container supply and trucking/shipping companies with a QuickLoadz trailer.

Additionally, QuickLoadz makes the ISO shipping container viable to many industries which have previously been reliant on expensive, specialized trucks and trailers. These industries include: dumpster operator, general contractor and even towing companies.

About QuickLoadz

QuickLoadz trailers feature the company’s revolutionary, patent-pending container moving system. QuickLoadz trailers are the world’s first no-winch, completely automated trailers for container transport.

QuickLoadz was founded on a simple premise: There must be a safer, smarter, faster way to move ISO shipping containers.

Prior to founding QuickLoadz, Sean Jones—Founder and CEO of QuickLoadz—owned Rockside Storage, a mobile storage business based in Southeast Ohio that was successfully acquired by Mobile Storage Group in 2007.

Like many mobile storage business owners, Jones was frustrated with the existing market solutions for pickup and delivery of ISO shipping containers to the end user.

A trained engineer and owner of a construction company, Jones set to work to design a better way to move containers. What had begun as a necessary ‘hack’ to compensate for the inefficient moving systems that had plagued Rockside Storage gradually evolved into QuickLoadz’ revolutionary trailer design.

Winch-less ISO Container Moving: Introducing QuickLoadz

THE PLAINS, OH–November 6, 2012–QuickLoadz announces the launch of its revolutionary new container moving system. The patent-pending, winch-less design transcends the limitations of other container moving systems, greatly expanding the market for ISO shipping containers with a QuickLoadz bed.

QuickLoadz’ easy to use, completely automated design entirely eliminates the hazardous, inefficient winches and cables integral to old-fashioned container moving systems. It lets a single operator safely load a container in two easy steps without damaging the loading surface.

The breakthrough design boasts engineering innovations in all steps of the container moving process: the Lift, the Load and the Lock.

  • Quick Lift: Only QuickLoadz’ patent-pending technology lifts by pulling the truck or trailer bed itself UNDERNEATH the container and features rear rollers which protect the loading surface from damage as QuickLoadz lifts the front of the container onto the bed.
  • Quickloadz raises the container off of the loading surface using two hydraulically-powered lift wedges. These Powered Lift Wedges slide effortlessly into the built-in pockets of any ISO container and lift the front of the container as the bed slides underneath.
  • Quick Load: Two hooks attached to a Dual Chain Drive engage the holes in the bottom of the container’s corner castings and continue to pull the bed underneath the container–loading the container fully and evenly onto the bed with no manual intervention.
  • Quick Lock: After the container is fully on the trailer bed, four 1 1/2” steel pins automatically slide hydraulically through the four corner castings of the ISO container, locking it securely to the bed.

Winch-less and Automated: Smarter Engineering

QuickLoadz introduces a fundamental design shift over the competition: No other moving system on the market can roll the truck or trailer bed under the container. Winch-based moving systems cannot utilize rollers under the back of their trailers to protect the loading surface because they get the container off the ground by relying on the static wedge that forms the back of the trailer.

“The process of forcing the static wedge between the ground and the front of the box to get the container lifted wreaks havoc on the container, contents and the customer’s loading surface,” explains QuickLoadz CEO Sean Jones.

“No other moving system is engineered with this level of safety and efficiency in mind,” continues Jones. “QuickLoadz won’t tip like the crane, and it doesn’t use hazardous strap and chain systems that can catastrophically fail. Put simply: It is safer, smarter and faster than current market solutions.”

Expanded Markets; New Industries

There are already 20 million ISO shipping containers worldwide. With QuickLoadz, that’s just the beginning.

QuickLoadz is poised to revolutionize the industry by enabling ISO shipping containers to finally reach market potential.

Only QuickLoadz protects the container, contents and loading surfaces.
Only QuickLoadz can easily move heavy containers.
Only QuickLoadz offers an optional 50° hoist which supports dumping of bulk materials directly from the bed.

By transcending the limitations of other container moving systems, QuickLoadz is the most versatile moving system on the market by far, significantly expanding markets for container storage, container supply and trucking/shipping companies with a QuickLoadz bed.

Additionally, QuickLoadz makes the ISO shipping container viable to many industries which have previously been reliant on expensive, specialized trucks and trailers. These industries include: dumpster operator, general contractor and even towing companies.
