Anyone can do it! Very easy to operate. I will use Red Rover again.

The ramp is very convenient, is hydraulic, and can access both the side and back of the container and can be extended (all movers were very impressed).

Ronja L.

Self-driving makes scheduling easier. Love the hydraulic ramp and modern technology in the cab.

Picked up the truck with the container and I was completely surprised how clean the truck and the container was. The truck was spotless.
