Renting, transport and storage of swap-bodies

How to stay flexible

We offer interchangeable platforms for horizontal and vertical elements in the two lengths 7.45 m and 10 m as well as tarpaulin platforms. For special solutions we have platform trestles, which can be freely positioned under the load.

Each of the flatbeds has comprehensive load securing options. With us you can book all the work around the flatbeds. We transport on schedule, load and move with crane vehicles and offer interim storage options. With our infrastructure and an extensive fleet of trucks and cranes, we can meet your requirements.

  • Generous storage areas available throughout Switzerland (covered or outdoor)
