    Garage move

    Has anyone ever moved one of these? I need to move it over and back about 10 feet. It's 21x18 with no floor.

    I can't keep the pic from rotating....so no "tipping it over" will not solve my problem

    I'm sure you thought of the obvious but I'm curious... what is stopping 6 guys from just picking it up and moving it?

    I moved some similar smaller ones when I was a kid. We built bracing inside them, picked them up with high-lift jacks, and backed a flat bed trailer under them.

    lift one side at a time put long boards under the side like runners, and then just slide it by either pulling with a vehicle or pushing.
    Whats next?

    I have moved many heavy items buy jacking them up and setting them down pm PVC pipe make sliding much easier

    1) too heavy for 6 guys
    2/3) I am leaning towards sliding it on wolmanized 4x4's or possibly trying pvc but it may be too heavy for PVC pipes

    The other thought is a bobcat (if it fits in the door) lifting on a board strapped to roof braces and see if we can slowly move it?

    gonna be a "hold my beer and watch this moment"

    I was hoping someone would say I have a skid loader with 20 foot rails.....i'll do it for $$$

    My first thought was the Bobcat inside idea. You would need to be quick because of fumes.

    I liked the one comment ... " I can't even get the 4 people in my family to take a picture together"
    It's just a damn shame that common sense just isn't common. - Got 4-Play?
