Mobile Home Movers

It is estimated that more than 20 million Americans live in mobile homes. Each year, the public demand to live in a mobile home has been on the rise. This may be in part due to cost, as mobile homes can save 40% or more on the cost to purchase a home. It may also be because mobile homes are able to be relocated from one area to another which helps make them a cost-effective way to live.

Seeking a mobile home moving company?

Not just anyone can move a mobile home. It is particularly important to find a professional mobile home transporter that can move the home safely. This is not a job for an inexperienced individual with a pickup truck. Before you hire someone to move a mobile home for you, you should ask the following questions:

  • Is the mobile home moving company licensed and insured to move mobile homes? Mobile home insurance is required to move a mobile home. Many mobile home movers out there do not have this.
  • Can the company move the type of mobile home that you own?
  • Will a permit be required for the location?
  • Does the company disconnect or connect utilities?
  • What is included in the overall cost?

How is cost figured to move a mobile home?

There are several things that will help determine the cost to move a mobile home. These include:
  • Distance. The farther the move, the more it will cost. Fuel cost will be greater when the truck must travel a greater distance. Those fuel costs are passed on to the mobile homeowner. Keep in mind that when you get a quote, it can change based on the cost of fuel at the time the mobile home is shipped.
  • Weight. The heavier a mobile home is, the more equipment necessary to move it. It is also possible that more movers will need to be on hand during shipment due to the weight of the mobile home.
  • Single or Double. Size factors into the move and will affect the cost. Moving a single wide mobile home will be cheaper than moving a double wide home. Depending on the size, it may take street closures and/or police or other escorts to make the move safely.
  • Materials. Moving materials, towing materials and other materials will have an impact on the cost.
  • Permits. If you plan to relocate a mobile home to a new city or state, chances are that a permit will be required to move to the new area. A professional mobile home mover should manage this prior to making the move.

Mobile Home Moving Mistakes to Avoid

Here are some mistakes to avoid when moving a mobile home to ensure your mobile home arrives at the new location in the same condition as when it is picked up.
  • Do not fail to get permits or inspections when required by law.
  • Do not check the mover to make sure they can oversee the move. As for referrals, check their reputation online through reviews that may be posted and be sure to check their license and insurance documentation.
  • Make sure utilities are disconnected or reconnected by a professional. Never let someone without proper experience connect utilities as you could risk damage caused by fire or flooding.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
