If you are moving to a new home and want to take your large shed with you, it is important to hire a professional hauling company to move the shed for you. There are a lot of intricate details that you need to consider when it comes to hauling something so large. The following guide helps you learn a few things that you may not realize goes into hauling a large, bulky item such as a shed.

Proper Equipment Needed

When you plan to haul a shed, you need to have a way to get the shed onto the tow vehicle. Most sheds are quite heavy and simply having a group of friends help you lift the shed may not be possible. A hauling company will have forklifts and possibly even cranes available if that is what is needed to lift the shed where it needs to go.

Permits Required

Depending upon the jurisdiction where you live, permits may be required when hauling oversized loads. If you get caught hauling a large item without a permit in a jurisdiction that requires one, it will create a lot of hassle for you. You will have to pull over to the side of the road and stop hauling the shed until you can get a permit to move it. This is to keep the roadways as safe as possible at all times. The hauling company will already know what permits are needed and know how to get them quickly.

Fleet of Vehicles

When moving large items, some areas require the trucks to have vehicles lead and follow them with signs alerting other drivers that the person in front of or behind them is hauling a large load. The hauling company will already have numerous people staffed and ready to work together to get a haul completed.

Transportation Vehicle

Finally, you will more than likely need a large, flatbed truck to haul the shed on. This allows you to attach the shed directly to the flatbed so that it will stay put during the move. The bed of a large truck will not be large enough for the shed to fit into and renting a flatbed truck requires you to have a CDL.

Hiring a professional hauling company like Seminole Towing & Recovery will make the move much easier. The company will already have all of the equipment and tools needed to handle the move properly. They have the experience to know how to get the shed where it needs to be in the shortest amount of time and safest way possible.
