Massive Moves

About the show

A team of movers takes on the monumental task of moving entire structures from one location to another. These movers race against the clock to lift whole buildings right off their foundations and transport them, still in one piece and complete with furniture, over all kinds of terrain and settle them into their new locations. Nothing is too big or off-limits, including homes, cathedrals and even an entire town. This stressful, and often emotional, process is overseen by the nervous people who love the buildings or call them home.
