The container (and not the trailer) is left with the customer

Without a Sidelifter, a trailer is often left with the customer – an unproductive use of equipment.  The Sidelifter can be productive all day, loading, transporting and unloading containers then moving onto the next job. There is just one piece of equipment to manage and maintain, reducing your operating costs.
