Preparation- Remove Skirt
The first step is preparing your mobile home for mobile home movers to transport it. On the bottom of the mobile home there is a skirt that hides all of the external hookups. The skirt is the first part of the mobile home that needs to be removed.
Preparation- Remove Attachments
Once the skirt has been removed the next step is to remove all of the external attachments. This will include turning off and removing the utilities such as water, gas, plumbing, and cable connections. Anything that may be blown off by high winds; such as a cable satellite, should also be removed.
Preparation- Secure Valuables
Within the interior of a mobile home, anything valuable or unstable should be carefully removed or sturdily secured down in anticipation of the move.
The mobile home can now be carefully lifted using a hydraulic jack system and hooked up to a heavy duty truck that will be transporting it.
Mapping the Route
Before the actual transport the driver must carefully plan out the safest route possible. Although the driver will be part of a moving envoy they will still have to drive very slowly, highways and roads can at times be difficult to navigate while maintaining control of a home that weighs a few tons.
Once the new destination has been reached the mobile home can then be reset on the new property. Any utilities or cables can be reattached.
The last step is to kick back and enjoy your new location, hopefully it will serve you and your family well for many years to come.
