Looking for an Erector for a Trachte Building (Tennessee Project)
Interesting.... Trachte hasn't offered (or even indicated that they are willing to consider) erection. Their regional sales guy is well aware that the first two erectors that he recommended can't do the job. One committed, then decided that he would rather hang gutters or something.
In many states we do offer labor directly as part of the building contract, however Tennessee is a state where we are not licensed to do so. In these areas our staff shares contact info for experienced erectors that serve your area. However, we are currently in the midst of what is essentially the largest self-storage construction boom that our country has ever seen, so erectors are in short supply. This can at times mean that the cost per square foot or timelines may not be exactly what you want.
Keep in mind that labor for jobs with insulation will be more costly, as installing it correctly to meet modern codes can be somewhat labor intensive.
While we believe that erectors that have experience with our buildings are most likely to provide a trouble free experience, you may be able to locate a local erector who is qualified to read the detailed plans that we provide with the building. However I would beware of anyone who is NOT busy in the business climate. To me, that is a red flag.
Feel free to contact me or Tom privately to discuss further.

I am a Trachte customer and just ordered my engineering prints for state approval, so I am ready to order a few buildings, can you explain your above comment a little more in detail either on here or send me an email?
My dumpster has 2 handles on either side. I have a chain that runs along the top and I padlock the ends of the chain to each handle. With the chain in place, the lids will only lift about 4 inches or so. The night before trash day I just remove the chain. This set up also keeps dumpster divers out....
Make sure there is enough room for large moving trucks to be able to pull in, back up and turn around in w/o hurting your buildings. Make sure there is adequate parking for the storage tenants. Require insurance. (CYA) Where is the storage office going to be? In the warehouse section? Make sure you...
