Man, I'm jealous! I built a big garage with a 10 foot high ceiling so I
could put in a lift, but I spent all my money on the garage! It'll just
have to wait.
With a one ton box 15' long you've got some unloading challenges. I was
just going to go for the small Bendpak unit and add casters.
(http://www.bendpak.com/product_info.isg?products_id=875) I think I can
move the pieces around with two people to assemble this one.
Your trucker will have to have a tilt-bed slide-off truck like the lumber
yards use to unload this thing. Then bring up each piece separately if it
can't be slid off near your garage. Unless you've got a wide enough drive
to bring a 15' long 400 lb piece up sideways on a forklift, you are going to
have to enlist a crew to carry it up. Four to six guys should be able to
handle this as long as you can provide a good way to grip the unit. Rope
slings, handles, etc. Have them sign a liability waver!
Good luck, and keep us posted. I really want to do this since I'm the family
