    moving a shed

    I keep seeing used sheds, and coops pop up on facebook market place for little to no money. Has anyone done this before, was it worth it? I think my biggest problem would be I don't have any heavy equipment to move so I might have to do it like the ancients did.

    Depends on how big the "shed" is.

    I bought a 8x14, and this is how they delivered and placed it.

    I specifically bought a 8' wide so that I could later place it on an 8' wide trailer if I ever wanted/needed to move it.
    2 handy man jacks on the front, back a trailer under it, then push it on/back under it the rest of the way.

    Depending on the size you could hire a roll back to move it for you

    That's going to a fun call to the towing company but does sound like a good idea.

    i have had several moved .......most are heavier than you first consider.......

    typical companies that move them are

    wrecker service companies
    roll off dumpster companies
    wood truss companies
    shed building companies
    private contractors with special equipment for such
    conex shipping container companies


    i used a private company from the local craigslist to do my last move (was a 20' conex actually) .....great guy worked like a charm .....have also used conex moving companies to do it with good results.......

    usually the key is access on both ends ....the hauling part is the easy part...some shed building companies dissassemble them to do the move on the larger units in difficult locations

    also seems like depending on the day and how busy they are reflects in the pricing ........over 8' does cause some to drop out of the pricing due to permiting and dealing with athorities
