Hello, and thank you for visiting! 

The cost of relocating a mobile home will depend on a variety of factors, including the distance of your move and the size and type of your mobile home.

Preparing the mobile home

Before you can relocate the mobile home, you have to prepare it for transport. It has to be lifted off the ground to install the axles to tow it, all windows and doors must be secured, and your utilities must be disconnected. This can all cost up to $1,000.

Transporting the mobile home

To move your mobile home, you will have to hire movers to load it 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 you arrive

Once your mobile home is delivered, you will have to prepare the surface where you wish to place the 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.
