Moving a 12x12 shed?

7 posts in this topic

I found a nice free 12 x 12 shed in Inver Grove Hts and I need to get it to Wyoming. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this. Would a flat bed trailer and a come along get this baby up. Is there a towing business that moves things like this?

I would think a towing company would be able to get it done. I've had my 10x16 fish house moved twice on a flat bed with no problems. if you do it yourself with a trailer/come along, that would be alot of work, well worth your time to call a local tow truck company with a flatbed.

Here is my take on it. Twelve feet is to wide for the road to transport normally. If you do it yourself you will need the proper trailer, the wide load permit, and all the correct signage to go with it. If you have a mover move it from Inver Grove Hts to Wyoming it is probably going to cost you more than the shed is worth, unless it is one really nice shed. That's my opinion anyway.

That long of a distance I would go with a moving company. Or like R_O_Osakis said what is the coast to build one by your self. I'm sure a moving company would give you a quote. Or what the heck go for it. I moved a 11x12 on my sled bed trailer double axle. But I only had to go six miles. Had some friends help pick up one end to the point of balancing it. Then back under it as far as could, lowered it down and then pushed it the rest of the way. But had five guys to push. Two 25 foot straps just made it over the top to strap it down. Slid off same way. Good Luck.

Dismantling into sections probably be the best option. Don'T know if the county would give a permit to private citizen for something like a shed that wide. Movers might cost more than the shead at that distance.

Agree to take the shed, then turn around and sell it on [YouNeedAuthorization] and make it someone elses problem. Then take the money from the sale and build your own in Wyoming.

Pretty hard to figure how moving it could pay off.

Cut it in half. Thats what I did with a 10x16 two trips though assuming you have a two place trailer. You can remove some siding and screw 2x4 into the studs horizontily one on each side extending beyond the ends to use as handles to help lift. You might have to reroof to get a water proof roof agian.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
