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.

Advantages of the swap-body service from EMIL EGGER – everything from a single source:

  • No unnecessary reloading – only one-time loading
  • Reduced downtime of the trucks
  • Marked savings in time and costs
  • Optimum load securing thanks to numerous stanchion slots
  • Rent of any swap bodies
  • Temporary storage of loaded flatbeds at ETE
  • Generous storage areas available throughout Switzerland (covered or outdoor)
  • Scheduled transport of the swap-bodies
  • Unloading and moving of your elements by means of crane vehicles

The Hawker Hunter aeroplane is safely back at the Hunter association Obersimmental
Until a few years ago, the former Hunter fighter aircraft of the Swiss Air Force were among the highlights at airshows in Switzerland. So was the Papyrus Hunter. The jet has been looked after and maintained by the Hunter association Obersimmental for many years. Unfortunately, the increasingly strict regulations became its downfall. In autumn 2023, the Papyrus was flown over to Altenrhein for its annual inspection. It was no longer allowed to take off from there.
