Thank you for visiting Movers.com!

To find reputable mobile home movers in your area, you can start right here at Movers.com! While we don't have movers that handle mobile homes specifically in our network, many boat movers or other special movers will handle the transport of mobile homes as well.

The process of relocating a mobile home can become costly. Make sure to do thorough research on the required steps and applicable permits, and compare quotes from mobile home movers to ensure you hire a reliable and experienced company with a background in moving mobile homes.
  • Preparing for the move. Before the move, your mobile home movers must lift the home off the ground to install the axles to tow it. Additionally, all of your windows and doors must be secured, and your utilities must be disconnected. This can all cost up to $1,000.
  • Transporting the mobile home. Your mobile home movers will then load your mobile home onto a flat bed truck and drive it to your destination. While the price will depend on the company you choose, most mobile home movers charge between $5 and $15 a mile depending on the size of your home. You will also need a permit to relocate your mobile home, which your movers may handle for you for a fee.
  • After the move. After your move, you may have to prepare the surface at the new site for your home. You may have to level the ground, cut down trees, or put down blocks to attach the home. This process can cost between $1,500 to $4,500.
