Shed Delivery Information
Our regular delivery trucks and trailers consist of F-550 pickup trucks and a 32′ trailer or a semi with a 40′-48′ trailer. We deliver for a charge depending on delivery location and size of your structure. Your site must be accessible to our truck and trailer or accessible for us to use the MULE. If we do not have access to your site and we must bring your shed back to our shop you will be charged an extra delivery fee. If we do not have access to your site we can build your shed on-site for an additional 30%. We will deliver your horse barn or shed directly to the site pad. We do not do any site preparations.
What is a MULE?
A mule is a shed forklift that allows us to deliver in bad weather and The Mule greatly reduces yard damage and allows us to be more efficient and accommodating with our delivery schedule.
How does it work?
- We unload your shed on the street or in your driveway.
- We unload the Mule.
- We place the Mule at one end of the shed and we put flotation tires under the other end of your shed.
- We then drive the Mule around your yard and right into your prepared spot and we never have to get the truck and trailer in your yard.
Permits for Township
Prior to purchasing any shed, we recommend that you check with your local government’s building code enforcement office. Building-code officials, in addition to supplying the permit (for a fee that varies with the municipality), will also advise on “setback” requirements, which will determine where the shed can be placed in relation to front, side and rear property lines. Additionally, there may be any number of restrictions or requirements a property owner must meet depending on location, how your property is classified (i.e. residential, farm, etc.) and whether a shed is designated as a “permanent” or “temporary” structure based on the size of the building or how it is constructed. Residents of subdivisions also should check any subdivision regulations concerning detached buildings.
Since all municipalities have differing regulations and requirements, we are unable to give advice on exactly what may be required of you. Taking care of these issues is the responsibility of the property owner. We are often asked to supply building specs, etc. as part of the permit process and we are happy to assist whenever possible.
