|All Sheds, Horse Barns, Gazebos and other quality
structures built by Wood-Tex Products are delivered fully assembled
ready for turn-key use the moment we leave. By delivering our
quality products to you fully assembled we are saving you days,
weeks, even months of putting up with construction and carpentry
crews working in your backyard. These crews can't help but work
around inclement weather and their other job deadlines so your
important project may get delayed, inhibiting you from using your own
backyard or property for what it does best, providing you with a
relaxing, fun and beautiful environment to do your own work and enjoy
your peaceful, sacred privacy at the end of a busy day.
So now that you have compared the value, benefits, warranty,
price, options and numerous other benefits that come with purchasing
a quality, ready-to-use Wood-Tex Product you are ready to make plans
to have your site prepared and ensure we have enough room for
delivery. You are ready to turn the key.
HERE'S WHAT TO
Most deliveries are done with Mid Size Trucks and 40' trailer. No
two deliveries are the same and the drivers will always take a look
at your site and decide on the best way to access it.
|We normally will back onto your
prepared site, push the shed or barn off the back of the
trailer with our winch until it is overhanging a couple feet then
tilt the trailer up, setting the back of the barn onto your pad.
|With our trailer still tilted up we will
then pull out from underneath the barn, setting it on the exact
location you have planned. We have a sideshift on the back of our
trailer so the front of the barn can be moved left or right
several feet as we're pulling out from underneath, allowing us to
place your barn 'on the dime.'
|We will need 50-60 feet of opening to
pull our delivery truck and trailer out from underneath your new
|The driver will then be sure the barn is
situated properly on your pad, making sure all doors and windows
work properly and are not binding due to an unlevel site. If you
are unsure of the levelness of your pad you may want to have
shims available to place under the corners of the shed, our
driver's carry jacks and they will assist you with this. |
Buildings that are 14' long or shorter can be delivered directly off
the 10' roll-back bed of the truck, allowing more manueverablity and
less pull away space without the trailer. This can work great in
small backyards or tight areas where space is limited.
Horse Barns 40' to 48' long require delivery with our semi and 48'
trailer so quite a bit more room is required for these size barns.
The amount of width we need to back into a site really depends on the
layout of the property and site. If we have a straight area to back
into, for example, directly off the back of your driveway, we can
back a shed in with less than a foot of clearance on each side. If
access to your site requires backing around fences, trees, flowers
etc. we will need more room to make the turns.
In general we need 14' of height to be able to get your quality barn
into your site with it on the truck or trailer.
All sheds and barns are unloaded from the REAR of the trailer so we
will want to know the best way to load the shed on our trailer here
at Wood-Tex. Sheds are always loaded length-wise on the trailer, for
example a 10x14 shed would be loaded 10' wide and 14' long the
trailer. If your shed has doors on the 10' end we can either load the
doors facing towards the front of the trailer or straight out the
back, if your shed has doors on the 14' side of the building we can
load the doors facing out the driver's side of the trailer or the
passenger's side. Having the shed loaded properly is crucial for easy
We would like to introduce you to the newest addition to our
professional delivery team-the MULE! New for 2007 the Mule is more
friendly and helpful than it may sound and we promise that it won't
kick! The Mule is a shed forklift that helps us get your barn in even
tighter spots with less damage done to your yard, especially during
periods of rain or bad weather. Here's how it works:
The Mule is a very handy tool that weighs in at about 1,000 lbs. This
is half the weight of most sheds so it is a very useful and effective
tool in limiting yard damage caused from weight when your yard is
|We unload your shed on the street or in
your driveway. |
|We drive the Mule out of your shed and
pick up one end of your shed or barn. |
|We place the two dolly flotation tires
under that end of the shed and lower the barn onto the tires.
|We then drive the Mule around to the
other end of your shed and pick it up. We are now ready to place
your shed in your backyard at the exact location you have
prepared without even driving our truck/trailer onto your yard!
The mule can only move buildings up to 30' long.
