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.

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
