haulin a shed

Ok I am going to pick up a shed 8ft wide 12ft long. I have my trailer it is 84 inches wide and 16 ft long. I know it the shed will over hang a bit. I am not worried about that.

But here is what I am trying to figure out. How to get the shed onto the trailer.

My idea is jack up the shed and place on jack stands. That would make it high enough to back the trailer up under neath the shed. Then lower it back down once the trailer is under neath the shed.

I know it would be nice to have a tractor with forks. But I don't have one, and I can't get one by 3pm today.

So do you all think my idea of jacking up the trailer is good enough.

Dang you know what I am gonna have to swing by my dads now. Because I think he has one of these laying around. Then my buddy has another I think at his house. I can lift one end at a time. Place them on jackstands then lift the other end and place on jackstands.

Sounds like you already know my best idea, jackstands. Sounds like this project could make one heck of a redneck camper.

I would go with the jacks and some wood cribbing or something to block it up as you back the trailer under it.

Could you use a cable puller/cum-a-long to pull it on? Thats how I got a shed onto my trailer. I sat the shed on small pieces of pvc pipe and it sort of rolled on it.

You could also use boards to skid it along. And apparently dish soap on the boards will help a bunch as a lube.

But if the trailer 8 ft wide just block up the shed on the sides and back right under it.
