I'm with Bruce...if you were going very far moving a lot of trailers would be too time consuming. I'm fortunate in that my hives don't go farther than 20 miles south of me for low elevation early flow to 15 miles north of me for higher elevation sourwood flow.

I have an acquaintance that has 550 hives that he moves 8-10 times a year from South Georgia to North Carolina, and he uses a flatbed truck with a lift gate. His hives are palletized, 2 to a pallet, and he moves them off the truck with a heavy duty hand truck.
