loading bean boxes on tender?

 bought a seed tender last year to use this season for the first time, also bought a forklift with 48 inch forks.I  can move black boxes around no problem. my tender has fenders on it so I can not get real close to tender to load box on without putting box away from forklift  so I  can set box down on tender in proper spot. when I push box away from forklift my end of forks are not under support for black box enough to properly support it safely, so I made extensions for forks out of c  channel , 2x6 inch , now there is not enough clearance  to drop box down because they are to wide. what do others do  , I was told this would work , I will look at neighbors  and see how they do it with extensions. I  thought this would work with everyone using these tenders with totes  but never really looked that close. Thanks for any help.
