You didn't say what state you are in. Here in Eastern Pennsylvania there are Amish shedbuilders every mile or two from each other. Check the shed builders in your area, especially the Amish if they live there. That is not to say they are cheaper than other shed movers but fair and reasonable. Otherwise tear the shed apart as suggested and move it in pieces. It is a nice looking shed with a lot of possibilty so no one should fault you for buying it - but! Take things like this into account in the future. I recently built a small 4 x 8 lean-to shed and built it so that it could be easily picked up and moved at any time, even by tipping it onto the side end onto a trailer if needed. I built the 4x4 skids with angled edges (3) right onto the bottom of the flooring so that it could be pushed or towed onto a trailer and used as the foundation supports. I say that you dismantle the shed like others suggested here. Get a friends with a flatbed trailer to move it and pay them for their time and gasoline. Don't spend more than $300-400 moving or just sell it back to the owner and start over. Try an Amish shed-builder they are nearly everywhere. They move sheds.

Legal limit on height is 13' 6" anything over that needs permits.

Moving a Shed


I am curious to hear if you ever found a way to transport your shed? We have an 8x8 shed that we'd like to transport to another house about 90 miles away. Let me know what you ended up doing. Thanks!

Re: Moving an 8x10 wooden shed 100 miles; how? (Video of shed inside)


I think the towing companies you talked to probably just don't want to deal with the hassle of the item. It's not a question of whether they can do it (and doing it in one piece rather than many pieces is not the problem) it probably is just it isn't worth their time.

I would look for smaller tow truck operations - ones that are just starting up or working out of their own house/garage - and see if they would be interested in making some extra cash. I know when we first started up at our tow truck business in Butte MT, we would look for any work we could find, doing any odd and unique jobs to pay the bills and move our trucks.

Keep looking and asking around, I believe there is always someone looking for more work, no matter what the situation. Good luck!

one hint to help get the shed onto whatever trailer you find....
use large PVC pipes to roll the shed around your yard. You jack up the shed and slide one under the front. A couple of guys push from the back to get the shed rolling over the first PVC pipe.... then you slide another one... and another. Probably 4 pipes total and you would get the thing to your front yard..... to where a truck could be waiting.

Or, use that method for the entire 100 miles like the Egyptians building the pyramids
