I finally bit the bullet and ordered the 3 tons of steel for my new barn, I went with Parkers in the end as they could process it for me, blasting, painting and cutting to length. Main reason for getting it processed by Parkers and not doing it myself is that the steel has to be unloaded in a car park and transferred onto my tractor trailer for the journey up the 1/2 mile stone track to the field and the most economical lengths for my requirements with minimal wastage is 9.5m and my trailer is just over 3.5m long! The logistics of this meant that is was easier for the supplier to process, with the longest pieces now being just under 6m so a lot easier to transport. I have made some brackets to go on the tractor power loader so I can mount a pair of hooks and slings to unload the lorry which is coming next Friday. I will document the process and will be taking lots of pictures.
