Question Moving a small shed

Need some advice on moving a small shed.

the shed is one year old - solidly built, 8' X 12' barn styled wood - built by professional shed builders. Vinyl siding.

We need to move it perpendicular to its current position - on a 90 degree angle - in order to get it out of the electrical easement. I have read lots of advice on moving sheds on rollers - seems ideal for straight ahead moves. How does this concept work for angle moves like ours? Would like to be able to jack up and move on rollers by hand.

I would think that once it is on the rollers that if you just pushed oh one corner that it would push at an angle. It would not turn a true hard 90 degree unless you had something at the opposite corner to hold it there. But pushing on just one corner will turn it.

Thumbs up Moving a shed

Thanks for the advice! that is what I was thinking - physics right? Now to convince my Hubby. We have the cylinders we just need the man power. I think a shed moving party might be the answer...

Depending on how the base is constructed it may be possible to get the rollers underneath in a radial pattern, like spokes on a wheel; then the shed might be rotated like a big turntable.
