Some services available at additional charge:
TRANS-LOADING & YARD STORAGE
At Whimsy we offer short to long term storage of containers. We have multiple storage yards strategically placed throughout the Chicagoland and Kansas City area to store all your containers. Secured and video monitored.
Whimsy owns and operates 20’ tri-axles between our Chicago and Kansas City offices. With the use of a tri-axle, it allows the shipper to load a 20’ container with a maximum weight of around 45,000 pounds. Without a tri-axle, the legal weight would only be 37,500 pounds.
Whimsy will trans-load any shipment you have and re-load into a container for an international or domestic shipment. Our staff will follow all guidelines set forth by the rail carriers for acceptable blocking and bracing. We use “Ty-Gard” for hazardous shipments and will send you digital pictures once completed for all shipments.
Whimsy Trucking and the majority of our drivers are HAZ-MAT certified to haul all types of hazardous loads, including fireworks loads (1.4 and above).
We are capable of handling everything from vehicles to standard palletized freight to floor loaded drums.
