Around here (San Diego) there are a number of companies who sell/lease used
Sea-train containers as storage buildings. These folks have specially built
trucks which look similar to a large flat bed vehicle tow truck, but are rigged
just to move these 10x40 foot containers. Might be worth checking with them
out if the tow truck option doesn't pan out.

Subject: moving "portable" building
Here's the deal: I have a 1-year-old wooden storage building, well-built,
12x16. Probably weighs 2500 lbs (guessing). We are moving into the house
that goes with it, and I really need to move it before I fill it up. The
basic reason is I intend to build a 4-car garage/shop where it sits.
It needs to go around some trees and rocks, slightly uphill, about 45

Orientation would be the same.
It does not have those big 4x12 cedar "skis" you see on some, it has 3
longitudinal 4x4s under it.
Several have suggested log rollers, but the terrain and the orientation
of the 4x4s makes that a bad idea. I called the local "experts" and they
said they didn't know how to get it moved. They scratched their heads and
