Moving a 12x12 shed?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
