How To Find A Shed Moving Service
Moving a shed is not something we have to do that often. There are many ways to do it yourself, but if the job seems just a bit too big, then you will likely need to find a company to move your shed for you.
Normally, this would involve some very tedious searching through results pages and phonebooks, collecting quotes individually and trying to work out which shed moving service is best for you. This is where Shiply can help.
You can cut out the searching and just start collecting quotes all in one place, saving you not only time, but also money, as quotes on Shiply can be up to 75% cheaper than usual, and it will only take up a few minutes to get going.
How Much Does Moving A Shed Cost?
It can be difficult to give you an estimate to move your shed that is accurate as there a numerous factors that can affect the cost. To give you an idea of what you can expect to pay, however, these are:
Shed Size - As a general rule, the bigger the shed, the more expensive the shed moving service will be. This is because not only may it require an extra set of hands to help disassemble or haul it, but it may also require a larger vehicle.
Distance - The longer the trip, the more it is likely to cost you to move your shed. However, it is often the case that the price per mile drops for longer journeys, meaning it will still be easily affordable.
Timings - If you need your shed moved by a specific time or date then you may have to pay a little extra for this. Most shed moving services on our platform are just trying to fill space in their vehicles on journeys they are already making, and so if you can fit into their schedule, your shed moving quotes will be cheaper.
Locations - Whilst rare, particularly remote pick-up or drop-off locations can sometimes incur extra charges just for how far away they are from any standard delivery route.

With so many options available to you when it comes to moving your shed, it can often feel a little overwhelming trying to simply pick the option that is best for you, and this is where Shiply helps.

An added bonus to this is that, by using Shiply, you are helping to save the environment by cutting down on unnecessary delivery vehicles on the roads.
Preparing For Your Shed To Be Moved
Once you have received a few quotes, selected one, and booked it, then you will need to prepare for your shed move. We suggest the following:
Disassembly - If possible then you should disassemble your shed before pick up. Not only will this make it much easier to transport, but it will also drastically reduce the risk of damage during transit.
Packing - Your shed moving service will have some advice for this, but generally, we would recommend not having parts rolling around loose - try and keep your shed secured in the vehicle to reduce the risk of damage.
Photographs - As a ‘just in case’, we suggest taking some time-stamped high-quality photographs of your shed’s condition before it is moved, as these will serve as proof in the unlikely event of damage during transit.
What To Do After Delivery
If your shed has successfully been moved, then we highly recommend checking it over and ensuring that everything is as expected. If anything is wrong, raise the issue with your chosen shed moving service as soon as possible.
One last thing we ask is that you leave a review for your chosen transport provider so that future Shiply users can know what level of service they can expect from them.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?
Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?
