    The machine in Patrick's picture is not a fork lift its called a Lull. They are used extensively in major construction jobs and can lift major loads up several stories with ease. The boom will extend way out and up from the machine. A Lull will destroy your yard and crack thin concrete in a real hurry, they are serious workhorses. Some people refer to a Lull as a fork lift but that's like calling a tractor trailer a pickup truck.

    Actually, Lull is a brand of Telehandler. Many manufacturers make "Telehandlers".

    Having a telehandler at your disposal is the stuff dreams are made of. I managed a fairly involved commercial construction project for about a year and there was an 80’ man lift, 20’ scissor lift, and a mid sized telehandler on site for much of the construction.

    I have already determined that when I move my shop out of my basement I will be renting a small telehandler to help pull the machines out of the walkout door and load onto a trailer, etc. Solves so many problems by having tons of ballast, hydraulics and 4 wheel steering.
    Still waters run deep.

    They make mini ones now, that can handle 2,500 lbs., but I doubt anyone is renting those yet. I'm getting ready to buy one for a large stonework job. It's like a little articulated loader, with telescopic boom arms. Any of those will tear up the ground less than either a wheeled, or tracked skid steer loader.

    Matt Cremona bought one not that long ago, used from a rental place. Oh, my, he's having fun with that thing, including being able to reach over his trailer from the rear to take something out of the truck bed. The lifting capacity of those things can be pretty impressive, too, because they are darn heavy machines.

    If a telehandler would do 65mph I would strongly consider one as my daily driver.

    The ability to clear your own parking spot would be pretty handy.

    Let's talk. I have such a deal for you! Cold A/C and low mileage.

    Hah! I actually have some questions for you but none relate to moving cars out of parking spots.

    Put in a trap door and you could use that thang to access your lower shop from the upper.

    Seems like a flat bed tow truck could make the transfer at a reasonable cost.

    A friend of mine had a Bridgeport Mill delivered by a u-ship type of service & he arranged to have a local towing company come out with a "Wrecker" that was able to lift it off the trailer & move it just inside the front door of his garage door. Once inside the garage we used a come-along & a bunch of 3' long 1" pipes as rollers to move it into the far corner.

    That was back around 2016 & I believe he paid around $150 back then.

    If anyone is checking around for something like this, Be sure to mention that you're lookin for a wrecker style tow truck that has a extendable boom/winch.

    Seems that the flat bed tow would work out better. It can tilt and winch and back right into the garage and would have more capability for a tall load.
