I understand that these units may be loaded onto truck chassis for easy transport. Other parts of the document refer to "relocatable" stations. Should I use this, or "mobile", or is there a more specific term?

Explanation:
Hi Marie

This is the translation that I have in a customer glossary for cranes. It may also be applicable in your case.

You can also find examples on the web, e.g.
"Gli scarrabili Longo risolvono al meglio il problema dello stoccaggio provvisorio dei rifiuti"
"LONGO roll-off vehicles are the best solution to the problem of temporary waste storage"
