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.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
