What to Expect When It Comes ToMobile Home Moving
Moving a mobile home in Texas is a multi-step process. For example, all utilities must be disconnected, proper permitting is needed, the appropriate transportation must be reserved, and it must be installed at the new location. There could be additional steps, as well, such as demolition, if your new residence is going in the place of an older unit at the site.
The good news is, we can handle all these. Keep reading to learn more about the steps taken to move homes so you know what you can expect during the mobile home transport process.
Acquiring Permits and Disconnecting Home Utilities
Unless your home is new and it has never been installed before, it will have to be disconnected before moving it. Once it has been purchased, professional movers can provide a thorough inspection to ensure it can be moved safely. At this point, the proper permits must be acquired for the move, which is something we can acquire for you.
Once the permits are in place, the process of disconnecting the utilities will begin. Usually, this includes removing the front and back stairs, taking down the decks and the porch roofs, and removing all the skirting around your home. Once all this is done, we will disconnect the utilities that are currently being used. If a double- or triple-wide manufactured home is being moved, the team will separate the parts to move them individually.
Moving the Home to the New Location
Our team has flatbeds ready to go that are uniquely designed to transport a manufactured home to a new location in Austin TX. After everything has been disconnected, the team will access and use heavy equipment, such as cranes, to lift up the mobile home or to put every piece on a flatbed truck.
Once in place, our team will secure it to the flatbed, so it does not move or shift while it is being transported. The cost of moving the manufactured home in Texas is going to be dependent on how far it must be taken. Our team will also use pilot cars and other transport methods to ensure it arrives at the new location safely.
Setting Up Your Home At The New Location
Planning Your Homes Foundation
The preparation process includes making sure the surface where it is being installed is flat and making sure larger flatbeds can access the land. If there is an elevated site, that will be best, since it can help to prevent issues related to drainage around the home now and in the future. If you can install a concrete foundation, this is even better. as this is considered the best option for mobile homes.
