Need a storage shed transported

Recommended Posts

Can anybody recommend a company that can move a 12x10 fully built storage shed for me. It’s also 12 feet tall at the peak. It’s located near I17 and union hills and I need bright to north peoria. It’s most likely fairly heavy. David

I bought it as soon as I saw it. It’s really overbuilt. Constructed by a retired home builder and electrician.

I was random searching and found truckplease.com looks like they do independent moves.

Transport of that may be expensive.  I’m not sure of the laws, but I don’t think you can haul 10’ in width anywhere you want.  You may need a permit and have to do it only during certain times of the day.  Blocking and rigging to get to the transport phase may be another part of the price.  Look at it as a project instead of a haul.  There may be multiple items to this.  The transport company may not make any guarantee that they can set it plumb and level and they can only load and unload.  If you plan on your backyard, that may complicate things getting it back there.

It looks like he built it on top of existing hardscape.  Be careful with that when you set it up.  It might be that the walls were built to that slope and not flat and level like an independent slab.  It looks like it might be low in the corner where it’s a little wet.  You can take a lazer to check that out.

Man, I moved a big 16x8 shed myself with some red neck ingenuity...

Never doing that again. Good luck.

I did pretty much the same thing except my shed was 9x13.  Moved it from Queen Creek to Flagstaff back in 2013.

 

My diesel truck got 4 MPG because of the wind load on the shed on the drive up to Flagstaff.
 

Yep, red neck ingenuity. When I think back on how I did it, it still impresses me.

 

And like you, never doing that again.

I'd give Tuff shed or Graceland a call. They obviously have the equipment and knowledge. Might be a little side gig they run.....
