How much Does It Cost to Move a Mobile Home?

Mobile homes can be great options for living, especially for first time home buyers or those that want the flexibility of relocating at some point in time. When compared to older mobile homes from decades ago that were often small and offered only the basics for home life, a new mobile home often offers many options for affordable luxury lifestyles including spacious floor plans, fireplaces, Jacuzzis and more. 

Best of all, even if it takes a little strategic planning, a mobile home, old or new, can be relocated to a new plot of land if you ever want, or need, a change of scenery. The biggest question that people have about relocating a mobile home is, how much will it cost? Here is an overview of what to expect, including cost, when you need to move a mobile home. 


Why You Should Hire a Professional

Here at A-1 Auto Transport, Inc., we cannot stress enough the importance of hiring a professional to handle the mobile home move for you. A professional moving team will have the experience necessary to safely relocate the mobile home. Sure, you can ask a friend to help tow a mobile home, but if you do it on your own without the training that a professional moving team will offer, you run the risk of major damage including damage to the mobile home, property damage and even the loss of life if someone is injured during the move.

Here are a few reasons to hire a professional mobile home moving company:

  • Permits

Many local ordinances require permits to move a mobile home and a professional will handle all the permit requirements before the move. 

  • Insurance

Professional mobile home movers will have your mobile home protected with insurance during the relocation. Most will cover accidents but be aware that natural disasters including damage from tornado or hurricane winds, hail or other natural disaster is not always covered by standard insurance. Liability insurance will need to be purchased from the transporter, but it is also advisable to check into external insurance coverage as well. 

  • Peace of Mind

When a professional handles a mobile home move, it allows for a stress free, easy move that offers peace of mind to the owner of the mobile home. Not only does it free up time because you won’t have to worry about spending hours, or days, cramped up in a truck during relocation, but it also saves money because there is no need to spend extra cash on lodging if you must park for the night, food from dining out along the way and fuel used to transport the mobile home. 

A-1 Auto Transport, Inc. has a great team that can offer peace of mind with quality, professional mobile home transport nationwide. 


What About the Cost?

The cost to move a mobile home will vary from one mobile home to another. Many things factor into the overall cost. These can include:

  • Mobile Home Size

The bigger they are, the more it will cost to transport. A double or triple wide mobile home will cost more than a smaller, single wide mobile home. Larger mobile homes will often incur the expense of an escort service or road closures. These will add cost onto the move.

  • Distance

The father the distance between pickup and delivery, the higher the cost will be. Fuel cost, especially on a long trip with a heavy mobile home will cost more than if you were driving a regular vehicle without the heavy load. 

  • Weight

A mobile home can weigh upwards of 35,000 or more pounds. Weight will factor into determining what type of equipment will be necessary for the move. 

  • Age

The age of a mobile home can weigh in on the cost to move. Older mobile homes may need repair, and if those repairs are issues that could make hauling them risky, the repairs will need to be handled prior to transport. 

  • Set Up

Unless you work with mobile homes on a professional level, it is best to hire a moving company that can also handle setting the mobile home up when it is delivered to your site. Set up services may include disconnecting/reconnecting utilities, removing/reinstalling foundation or porch/decking/underpinning and reconnecting a double wide mobile home. Set up services can add up to $4000 or more to a mobile home shipping bill. 

On average, transport for a mobile home will range between $800 and more than $3000 depending on circumstances including those listed above.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
