Have you found your dream home from the prefabricated home for sale ads? If you have found the home and negotiated the price, the next thing you need to consider is moving the home. Moving a pre-manufactured home to a different location will obviously cost you. It will cost you money, energy, time, and could have some negative consequences too, if you do not properly plan the move.
The moving costs can include much more than money. The headache of the moving is in itself a big price that you will have to pay if you do not have a proper plan of action. Besides, moving a manufactured home involve much more than hiring a local tow truck agency. There are many important things, which go into moving manufactured homes. Below are some of the important things that you need to consider while looking for home moving agencies.
Hiring a Moving Company
You will have to hire a professional who is specialized in moving manufactured homes. It will not be easy to find a suitable mover for you, especially when thinking of the various costs that are involved in the process. You will feel tempted to base your decision on the price quoted by the mover, but this isn’t the best approach. Yet again, this does not mean that you do not need to be price conscious, but understand that there are shady people in all industries, and home moving business is not an exception.
Make sure to do your homework and research before deciding on the company that you are going to hire. It will be better if you could find some references to check. Another option is to check with the Better Business Bureau. This will help you know about the complaints that were filed against the firm, if any.
Do not forget to thoroughly read the quote of the company. Check if the company guarantees that the lot will be cleaned after moving the home, as mobile home parks will hold you responsible for cleaning the messy lots left after moving the home. Ensure that the moving company of your choice has included cleaning of the lot after moving the home in the quote; else, you will have to deal with the angry park owners.
Another important thing is to check what the moving company is planning to do with the decks and sheds. This should also be decided before fixing the moving company and starting the moving process to avoid miscommunications and delays in the moving process.
