In this blog however, we want to take the hassle out of panelled buildings such as Sheds and Storage. Whether you’re moving house or reworking your garden space, here’s how to move a shed.

Why Move A Shed?

There are many reasons to shift your shed at any time. The main reason being Moving House. Whilst many garden buildings help increase the value of your property when it comes to selling, you might keep your shed as it guarantee some spare storage space for your new home.

Alternatively, if you’re staying put, you may move your shed for Renovation purposes. It can sometimes be easier to dismantle and rebuild instead of working around the pre-existing building. That way you can optimise your garden goals!

Of course, these are just a few reasons to move a shed. With that said, let’s now look at how…

Dismantling A Shed

Dismantling a Shed

Obviously, you cannot just pick up a completed shed, pop it in a moving van and take it to your new home. It must first be dismantled. Here are the main things you need to focus on when dismantling you panelled shed:


Make sure you’re using the appropriate tools, such as wooden mallet, hammer, screwdriver, pry bar, as well as safety gear. Don’t forget to get the original instructions for your shed for reference.


You will need full access to the shed, so clear any and all belongings in the shed prior to dismantling.


Remember how you built your shed and work in reverse when taking it apart. For sheds, start with the roofing, then dismantle the walls and siding. finish with taking apart the framework and flooring.


Keep all the parts for your shed organised and label them appropriately. You’ll need to keep everything accounted for when you rebuild it.
