Leaving your home or office? Call the movers. But if you’re the type who can’t leave anything behind, you’ll have to call in the MEGA MOVERS.
Whether it’s a 19th century church or a massive brick office building, there are few things our experts can’t relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.
In America's heartland, few structures are as iconic as the country barn or the local church. In Nebraska, our team attempts to transport an historic gothic horse barn to a new farm. Working in sub-zero temperatures, they'll have to maneuver the massive structure through 26 miles of extremely narrow, unpaved country roads to reach their destination. And in Texas, a 115-year-old church has to be cut into five pieces before being relocated to a new spot two miles away.
Will our MEGA MOVERS be able to reassemble this cherished chapel and preserve it for future congregations?
