I have an 8' x 12' shed that needs to be removed from my property in Meredith. Can anyone recommend someone who can do that?

First off, did you manage to get the shed removed? If so, I'm curious about how you went about it. If you opted to dismantle it, did you find it necessary to rent a dumpster to dispose of the materials?
It's something I'm considering for a similar situation at my parents' house in Lafayette. We've got an old shed that needs to go, and I've been looking into its logistics. Renting a dumpster seems like it could simplify things. Dumpster Rentals Lafayette, a local company, offered us a quote of $70 per day. But I'm not entirely sure if it's necessary or just an added expense.

Nice thing about a dumpster is the dismantling is minimized. Pieces only have to be small enough to fit in the dumpster. Is there an additional delivery charge? What about disposal charges? Did they quote a per ton/per cubic yard charge or a flat rate? If a flat rate you might be looking at an additional +/- $600 charge.

Just saw that Dumpsters of Lafayette is in Louisiana. Disposal pricing will probably be way cheaper down there. Cost I mentioned is NE pricing

Most local trash haulers offer dumpster service. We removed an 8 x 10 shed by cutting it up with a chain saw and putting the pieces in dump bags we bought from Amazon. I recall each bag was good for 3000 lbs. On an island, the bags were easier to handle with an excavator to a barge than a dumpster.
Beware of possible hazmat fees if your shed has lead paint or asbestos issues.

Why not burn the debris if there are no hazardous materials
EPA permission is required but legal in Meredith

I thought of what would happen if trying to do this in California...Can't.

In New Hampshire, can you still install a wood burning fireplace indoors?

Default Indoor fireplace?

Can't imagine not. Woodstoves, fireplaces, pellet stoves are all popular. Ironically, builders and architects, who should know better, put a two story chimney outside the house where it gets cold. It can take hours to heat the chimney before there is any heat value to the fireplace. In the meantime, your furnace runs to offset the heat lost up the chimney. I'd also guess that most masons have never heard of Count Rumford who laid out designs for efficient fireplaces in the 18th century, so they build a fireplace and the homeowner goes to the store and buys a fireplace insert.

Default Another option

You'd be surprised what you could do with a post on craigslist. My brother in-law in CT was about to take a whole weekend to bust up a shed he was replacing and planned to make multiple trips with a small trailer to the dump. I suggested he try a craigslist post(free section) and that weekend someone pulled up in a flatbed and hauled it way. He didn't lift a finger. If your shed is somewhat salvageable someone might us it for a bob house, chicken coop, etc. You never know. If not, you might find someone for short money to cut it up and dispose it. Good luck.

I hope so, I have a whole retail area that supplies just that.

A dumpster is probably the way to go. Even if you cut it up and haul it to the dump you will have to go on the scale and pay by the pound.

Default water weight

Keep a tarp on the dumpster. If it rains, you will pay for the weight of accumulated water.

I'm glad OP got this handled. Doing demo can be fun, but challenging.

When I moved in 20 years ago, I 'inherited' a tottering 8X8 tool shed. I added a bit of reinforcement and used it until last year when I tore it down and had Reed's Ferry build me a small barn.

I guess I did a better job than I thought because I borrowed a bucket loader to knock down the old shed. All I accomplished was to push it around. I had to take a sawzall and cut in from the corners to weaken it enough to give in to some more hits.

Default Sears Shed

My Dad bought a "Sears & Roebuck" 8X12 metal storage shed back in the mid 1980s to store tools and provide cover for other items. It served us faithfully for just over 30 years. Its demise was not caused by the roof giving out, it was the very bottom of the structure that eventually rusted out. It ended up being my woodshed that would hold 5 cords of wood. Even with that, when it came time to remove the shed, I had to go out and buy a "saws-all" to cut it down and haul it off to the dump (or landfill or transfer station or whatever they call it these days).

I think we got our money's worth out of it.

Dave

I'm in the process of building a new 10X14 shed. I have an older poorly home built 10X12 shed which I was going to tear down, but I decided instead to spruce it up and make it into a woodshed.
