External hive removal

So, not all swam calls are. This is a 'several weeks old' swarm, 8 feet above the porch of a 2 story log cabin home. I am guessing it is 2.5-3 feet wide. It will be necessary to climb up, cut off the comb and wire it into frames. At least a couple hours work I am guessing. http://www.chimports.com/L...

Avoid the excluder, give the queen room to work. As they fill the frames and the queen reduces egg laying in the fall/winter, they will fill in what they can with honey stores.

Picking up a hive

I have a hive (3 med boxes) that I had on a friends farm for pollination. Now I need to move it as he wants to do some spraying for wasps.
Can I reduce it to 1 box before the move?
Or would someone be willing to give me a hand lifting it on and off my pickup this weekend?

Thanks all
