Hello and thank you for visiting Movers.com!
To transport your modular home to its new location, you may require the services of house movers.
What are house movers?
A house mover is a professional moving company trained to transport homes to new locations. You should find a company that has experience specifically relocating modular homes, and is licensed and trained to move them in your area. Ask any company you are considering for hire if they offer
preparation and setup processes as well.
Preparing your home for the move
A modular home must be properly prepared before it is moved to a new lcoation. Your home movers should be able to professionally advise you on the required steps, but these are few things to keep in mind:
- Remove all heavy items and furniture from the home, as well as anything fragile.
- Exterior and decorative objects such as awnings should also be removed so they don't fly off while the home is being transported.
- Disconnect all utilities, such as water, gas, and electric. You will require professional assistance for this task.
- Prepare the ne site. Make sure your home's new location has a proper foundation and meets local regulations for structural installation.
