Moving cars the easy way

Feb 04, 2013
Anyone who has ever tried to load a car into a container knows that it can be fraught with difficulty. Push it in without a driver and it’s difficult to steer. Sit a driver behind the wheel and he won’t be able to get out other than through the tailgate or the sun roof and then only if he’s not eaten for four days.

But for moving companies that load a lot of cars, a new gadget from Finland looks likely to make the whole process much easier.  The Stringo 450 is a vehicle mover that can transport cars up to three tonnes in weight around the warehouse and store them cleanly in tight places.

But when it comes to loading the vehicle into the container the the Stringo really comes into its own.  The operator platform has the ability to swing around to face the car.  This means that the driver can steer the car and position it accurately in the container without needing to be behind the wheel.

 “The new operator platform puts the driver in full control of loading as well as transport,” said Anders Bergkvist, Marketing Director at Famek AB, the designers and manufacturers of the Stringo product line. "In addition, the working position is ergonomically correct and comfortable. The steering handles are angled and can be individually customised to the driver with a simple one-handed adjustment."
