    My husband and I are moving in about 3 months and need our 4x8 coop moved about 8 miles. I am having a heck of a time getting someone that can do this. Its going to need a forklift to get it to the front yard. Can't fit a flat bed in the back due to neighbor's fence.

    Any suggestions?

    buy two cases of beer, put up a sign at work:

    4 helpers and a truck needed, will pay with beer!

    add the date and I think you will have it handled. this would happen same day I put the sign up where I work.

    a 4 by 8 coop should not weigh enough to be a problem for 6 or so guys.

    maybe the local high school football team needs a fund raiser? a dozen 17 year old linebackers and one coach with a truck should not cost you more than $50-75.

    good luck,
