Mobile Home Movers Texas

Mobile homes provide an opportunity for people to enjoy comfortable living on a budget. When purchasing a mobile home, buyers are encouraged to understand the process involved when moving that new mobile home. While the process is somewhat complicated, a professional mover will help mobile homeowners understand each step of the process and why working with an expert mover is always recommended.

Professional mobile home movers make a move painless for the homeowners regardless of where the home’s destination is somewhat challenging to access. No one wants to spend more than they must when moving a mobile home, nor do they want to waste time in the process. That’s where moving experts excel.

Understanding The Moving Process

Regardless of the model or age of a mobile home, three steps are required for a successful move. The first step is preparing the mobile home for the move. That could include disconnecting services at the old location or ensuring a new unit is properly prepared for moving. The second step is transporting the unit to the new location. The final phase is installing the home in the new location. Here are a few of the details involved during each step of the moving process.

Obtaining the Necessary Permits

When a mobile home is moved, permits and inspections are required. The inspections and permitting are essential, as they go a long way towards ensuring the move proceeds safely. The paperwork involved is handled behind the scenes, and most homeowners are unaware of what’s involved before a move. Ask prospective movers how they handle the documentation required to legally and safely move a mobile home.


Disconnecting the Home at the Old Location

Mobile homes that are currently in use must be disconnected correctly before moving them. All utilities must be disconnected, skirting taken off, and any decks or steps must be removed. Since every move is different, the mover will outline the requirements and timeline involved so owners understand what will happen prior to the actual move. In some instances, the owner may wish to reinstall the same components at the new location, which means they must be handled carefully to prevent damage.

Moving the Mobile Home

This stage of the move is complicated, which means professional assistance is a must. While many projects are safe for DIYers to take on, moving a mobile home should always be left to the experts. There is simply too much at risk. Legal and safety issues are considerations, but DIYers are also much more likely to cause serious damage during a move.

Some of the complexities involved in the move will depend on the size of the mobile home. Pilot cars are required in most areas, and the movers must choose the most appropriate route for the move, as clearance problems are common, and safely navigating turns is always an issue. Work with an expert mover to mitigate risks and ensure your home is delivered safely and on time.

Installing the Home at its New Location

Once the mobile home arrives at its destination, it must be correctly installed. That starts with ensuring the foundation is appropriately prepared. Most areas have codes that require specific types of foundations. Safety is always an issue here, so selecting the most effective foundation is crucial. There are some basic strategies used to secure a mobile home.

    • Concrete. Concrete foundations offer a secure, safe option for owners. While a concrete foundation may cost more to install, most experts suggest a concrete foundation is the best option for securing a mobile home.

    • Piers. Piers are another common foundation option, and they are less expensive than a full concrete foundation. Piers are used extensively, and most local codes (and lenders) accept them.

    • Dirt Foundations. This option is common but is not considered acceptable in some locations. When considering using a dirt foundation, consider the costs of obtaining the required type of soil, as not all areas have access to the appropriate type of soil required to construct a solid foundation.

The type and size of the home dictate which foundation options will work and provide the level of safety owners expect. While installing a single-wide mobile home is relatively simple, double- and triple-wide homes require much more sophisticated foundations. Working with mobile home moving experts ensures the installation provides a secure and level installation that meets all local codes.


Of course, take the time to discuss the foundation early in the buying process, as the foundation must be ready when the home arrives. The moving professionals are often able to provide advice and recommendations that make selecting and installing a foundation easier.

Getting Ready to Move In

The final steps of the move are obtaining any required inspections and hooking up the utilities. Remember that many mobile home movers don’t handle the hookups involved, so always ask about this service before hiring a mover. If the mover doesn’t take care of the hookups, owners must hire a second contractor for that service.

In addition, owners must inquire about installing steps, decks, skirting, and other elements so the home is move-in ready. Again, always discuss what services the mobile home mover takes care of before they’re hired, as dealing with additional contractors is generally time-consuming and expensive.
