Delivery Service Area
At Raber Portable Storage Barns, we deliver up to 250 miles from our main location. Our primary service area covers Indiana, but if you are in Ohio, Kentucky, or Illinois we can try to make arrangements for you.
We need to have width clearance of approx. 2’ more than the width of the shed. For example, if you order a 10×16 shed you would need approximately 12’ wide opening to get the shed through.
Check for overhead limbs, wires and trim trees if necessary. Try to make sure that we can get through and that the space is clear.
Prepare the Plot
Check to see if your pad is fairly level. You can use a string, then hold level on it will get you close. However, if it's more than 8″, you may want to consider leveling it up. You can use rocks or a bobcat or tractor with a scoop. We have concrete blocks on hand if needed, and can level it for you for a minor fee, but cosmetically it may not be as appealing.
Our delivery professionals will give you a call about a week before to schedule a time to drop off your structure, and then an hour prior to arrival they'll let you know they're on their way.
How Does It Work?
After making arrangements for delivery, we will send out our delivery personnel to bring your structure to you. He will unload your structure on the street or in your driveway for you. He can even place the Mule at one end of the shed and put flotation tires under the other end of your shed.
Then, he will drive the Mule around your yard and right into your prepared spot. We never need to get the truck and trailer in your yard, that's the beauty of the Mule.
What is a Mule?
A mule is a forklift that allows us to deliver structures safely and quickly. The Mule greatly reduces yard damage and allows us to be more efficient and accommodating, with our delivery schedule.
I just wanted to follow up and let you know that I am very pleased with the new building. It looks really sharp and solid. You guys did a great job of matching the photo I sent and it’s going to be perfect for my needs.
Also, wanted to put in a good word for Mark. He delivered my shed. You’ve got a good employee there. I was impressed with his ability to maneuver that building by himself. You have some impressive equipment and he’s an expert at operating it. He had to work around some pretty big obstacles with the narrow drive and that hill and he took it all in stride, figured out how to make it work and was very professional doing it.
Thanks again! I am really glad I called you guys and will refer you to others any day. Good luck with the location in Newburgh.
