Moving A Shed!

I have a 10 foot by 8 foot shed , made of wood that I need to transport from Point Pleasant to Long Branch. I have thought about getting a trailer and trying to winch it up onto it and haul the trailer with my f150. Any suggestions?

That's what I would do.

Another possibility is to place a piece of plywood next to it, leaning on the back of the trailer, jack/crane/lift the shed onto four moving dollys, then push with the help of friends.

I helped a friend do that to a huge dollhouse he sold to another mutual friend (the dollhouse was huge, i.e. kid sized... his daughters played in it until they were almost in their teens. I'd guess it was about 8'x10' base and maybe 6' high at the peak? We used six moving dollys.

Well, the moving dollies may be tough, it is on turf, with grass all around it. I thought if I could jack it up on 1 side, say about 12 inches, then roll some PVC pipe, about 8 inch, under it...then jack up the other side, and slide another pipe under...and try rolling it, with additional pipe ahead of it also...just to get it at the edge of the trailer then use a winch , and straps, and pull it up onto the trailer....and after thinking of all this, I kept saying to myself : "self, that sounds crazy!" it does have a wood floor which should make this possible.....

Harbor frieght tools sells "farm " jacks pretty cheap....they will jack up a tractor!
I am actually giving the shed to a freind who needs one, and cant afford to buy one...

Thanks Fred for your help! I gotta keep thinking for more ideas....

what I meant was back the truck or trailer up to the shed, lean plywood on the bed (remove the tailgate as not to bed it), and use the dollys to travel up the plywood.

I wasn't suggesting going around your yard/house on dollys

I had to move my shed, but it was only about 20 feet. We jacked up the rear and pushed a couple of 2x10's under the runners. I screwed a piece of plywood to the other side, then used the F250 to push it across the yard.

If you have 4x4's underneath, they will slide if you put a couple of 2x8's or 2x10's under them.
I'd try making a ramp from the shed to the trailer, supporting it a couple of places in the middle,
then either winching or pushing it up onto the trailer.

Well, when I emptyied it out, I saw how bad it was, rotten wood etc...so I paid some guy to remove it...money well spent I think, cuz I woulda hurt my ol' back doin it...(ciatica...)

so, now the wife wants a pool put up on the spot where the old shed was!!!!

wonders never cease....I love livin in jersey, just blocks from the ocean...and she wants a pool!!!

the only bad thing about livin in jersey is the idiots down in trenton who think it is better to shut down the sand box and dont let no one play, then to work out their problems...what a bunch of immature *** holes...:-\

Remember we elected these *** holes

Sales tax is going up, and property taxes are going down, so they say. I expect the latter to not happen.

I wish it would, I'd have a new car every year.

I know a joke, but only a joke. I have a lot of family and friends in that wonderfully governed state, even spend my vacation and recreational dollars there.
