Average Cost of Moving a Shed Revealed 

Average Cost of Moving a Shed Revealed 

If you have an attractive and watertight shed that you don’t want to leave behind when you move, there’s good news – it can move along with you! Our shed movers are skilled at securely transporting sheds – even across long distances. To give you a basic idea of prices, we’re highlighting the average cost of moving a shed and explaining some of the basics involved in the process.

At Glick Woodworks, we are known for both building high-quality Amish sheds as well as transporting sheds and portable buildings. For many people with fairly new, high-quality sheds, the cost of moving a shed is far less than building a new one when they move.

What Does it Cost to Move a Shed?

One of the main reasons that people choose to transplant their shed is to save money. After all, if the shed still looks new and will provide years of reliable storage, there’s no reason to leave it behind. That’s why one of the most common questions we hear is, “What does it cost to move a shed?” The answer depends on several factors, such as the distance the shed needs to travel, the size, and other considerations like permitting. These are the average prices at the time of writing in spring 2022.

Here are some average costs of moving a shed to a new location or to a new space on the same site:

  1. Local Shed Onsite Move: Approximately $250 to $375 – This price covers moving a shed to a new location on your property for local customers. Moving a shed to another part of your lawn still requires a piece of specialized shed moving machinery. Of course, certain conditions may change the price as well.
  2. Local Shed Move: Approximately $400 to $500 – Essentially, this average shed moving price covers moving a shed to another location within Lancaster. Generally, this is so affordable because you aren’t far from our headquarters and because we don’t need to transport your shed a great distance.
  3. Onsite Move for Faraway Customers: Approximately $600 to $700 – If you’re more than 2 hours from our headquarters, our crews will be more than happy to transport your shed. However, the price will be a little higher as you are paying for the travel time required for our crew and equipment.
  4. Long Distance Shed Move: Approximately $4,000 – Even if you’re moving across the country, your shed can still come with you. We often help people who are moving out of state bring their sheds along. For example, if you want to move your shed from Lancaster to Florida (or any other faraway state!), it will cost in the ballpark of $4,000. Please keep in mind, though, that the more variables like distances there are, the more the average shed moving price will change. Of course compared to the price of building a new very large shed or garage, it is still a bargain.
  5. Extra-Wide Long Distance Shed Move: Approximately $6,000 to $7,500 – If you want to move an extra-large shed or small garage across the country, it requires additional steps. For example, special permitting and an escort vehicle are needed to make the trip safe and legal. Since this causes the cost of moving a shed to go up in price, this causes many homeowners to consider whether they would rather build something new on their new property.

While these ballpark prices are as accurate as possible at the time of writing in 2022, they are still estimates. The only way to get an exact answer to the question, “What does it cost to move a shed?” is to reach out to our team for an exact quote!

Glicks are service driven and know how to build that is tough and built to last, sturdy and structurally sound in their trade. Communication with us is enjoyable.

Having had 12x20 garage/shed by Glick Woodworks for seven months now and can tell that this is very solid and well built product. Equally important, it was a very easy and professional process to discuss design, get drawings, and finalize order. All my questions were answered, all emails and calls promptly responded to. The installation was right on time, fast, and just a pleasure to watch. Overall, I don't think I'll need another shed anytime soon, but if I do - I know where to go!

I needed to move a shed to a different property. Dave was quick to respond, scheduling was easy, especially important because I had a narrow timeframe to work with, and the move was smooth, uneventful, and with perfect placement. The person who did the move itself was informative, skilled, and pleasant. I highly recommend and will most definitely use again.
