Of your bee haulers. I'm needing a trailer or some means of hauling boxes to outyards and looking for ideas. At this time I'm thinking a flatbed trailer with ramp and even though my count at this time isn't huge I am building my hive count so future expansion is considered. I also would like to know/see how you move the boxes. Anyone have handtrucks or lifts that they would like to brag on.

How many do you expect to be moving.  I have very few hives, I moved them once with a hand truck and a 5x10 ft trailer.  One load for the hives and 1 for supers to be added.  Now a guy in our bee club may be more like what you want.  He has a flatbed truck and a trailer for the forklift.  He has his hives on pallets, I could be wrong but I think he told me he can carry 60 hives on a load.  Maybe this will help.
