Services That We Offer
How to Prepare to Move a Mobile Home
Purchase or Rental Agreements
There are many things that need to be prepared in order for the transport process to take place. The first part that needs to be completed is the property transaction. The mobile home purchasing deal will need to be 100% complete. Also, the lot or land where it is going will need to be secured whether that is in the form of a rent agreement or land purchase.
Mobile Home Park Contracts
Another important part is the arrangement with mobile home parks if they are involved. To avoid a dispute when removing it from the park, it is recommended that management has been made aware of the plans and that the lot rental agreement has been terminated. If this isn’t properly dealt with, it is not uncommon for authorities to be involved.

Tongues and Axles
Do you know if your house trailer still has its tongue, axles and tires? When purchased everyone home is equipped with them, but after being setup and removed they sometimes get lost. The contractor will ask if you know the location of them and if they are missing they will provide them.
Trailer transport is typically only utilized when the frame of the building is questionable and it appears to be risky to trust. At this point the home is loaded onto a trailer and relocated. Not every contractor offers this as a service.

Here are a few questions that are commonly asked with regards the cost of moving a mobile home, and how to do it. If you have any further questions, feel free to give us a call!
Moving a mobile home will cost anywhere from $2000 to $12000. There are many factors that go into determining the cost. The biggest factor that affects the cost is the size or type of home. On average, a double-wide home costs twice as much as a single-wide. This is because it requires twice as many loads and detaching and re-attaching. How far is it being moved? If it is across your yard or across multiple states, it makes a significant difference in the cost. The difference of a few miles doesn’t matter much, but when it involves crossing state lines, the price will increase. This is due to additional permitting.
There is no possible way that moving a mobile home is ever free. Whether you own the needed equipment and are doing it yourself, it still has costs. Even if you consider your personal time value-less, a permit and fuel will still be required and are definitely not free.
The first thing to figure out is whether the home is actually level and how much it needs adjusted. There are a few different methods to determine if the home is level. Common tools used are a stick level, laser level or a pail with hose and a coloured fluid. Once the level of adjustment is determined, a plan can be derived to fix it. Carefully lift the home with a crane, jacks or a translift, and then add shims or blocks as required. Lastly, tie the home back down.
