Mobile Home Removal and Demolition Options
Whether you purchased a new property with an unwanted add-on (i.e., an old mobile home), inherited a mobile home you have no plans of using, or simply want to get rid of the one on your property to free up space for a garage or workshop – it doesn’t matter.
We know how to remove a mobile home, and we’re experts at getting them out of people’s hair – for free!
But before deciding that going with our offer is the best way to remove a mobile home from your property, it’ll be good to know the alternatives first. This way, you can make an informed decision based on market information.
Here are some of the common mobile home removal methods available:
Mobile Home Demolition
If you decide to get the mobile home torn down and you’re looking for a quick and painless way to get the job done, demolition may be your best choice. We have coordinated demolition jobs all over the state of Arizona – from Tucson to Flagstaff.
Getting the demolition work done usually involves a couple of steps:
- Research mobile home demolition and removal services near you.
- Get quotes from your prospective contractors and select the one with the best offer.
- Secure required demolition permits.
- The mobile home is torn down safely by the contractor.
- Salvageable materials are segregated, and the debris is hauled away.
Finally, you’ve freed up the space you need to use for something else.
If you’re wondering about the average cost to remove a mobile home through demolition, it’s usually priced anywhere between $3.50 and $5 per square foot. This means that a 15-foot by 50-foot mobile home could set you back by around $2,600 to $4,000 in demolition costs.
But remember, there are other factors that can affect the total cost of the demolition service besides the size of the mobile home. These include your location, whether the mobile home has a shingle roof (this usually costs extra to remove and dispose of), or whether the mobile home is empty or has stuff that needs to be removed as well.
Aside from the demolition fee, you also need to factor in the permits needed to get the job done. Applying for and getting demolition permits are subject to fees amounting from around $100 to $350 or higher.
One thing you can do during your negotiations with your chosen contractor is to check whether they can take care of getting the permits themselves and if these are already included with their quote.
Mobile Home Deconstruction
Considered to be an eco-friendly mobile home removal method, deconstruction involves the systematic tearing down of an old mobile home (or any home or building, for that matter) to salvage materials that are still reusable.
Here’s an overview of the deconstruction process:
- Get quotes from your prospective contractors and choose the best company for the job.
- Obtain a deconstruction permit.
- Your contractor disassembles the mobile home and separates all salvageable materials.
- All the remaining debris is hauled away, so you have a clean space ready for use.
A deconstruction can cost almost double that of a typical demolition job, costing as high as $8,000. Add to this the fees that come with getting a permit, and you’ll have quite a sizable expense to budget for.
Again, before closing negotiations, check with your contractor if they’ll be responsible for getting the required permits.
An important note to remember regarding deconstruction is that it is more time-consuming than demolition. It can take anywhere from an entire workday or a few days to finish – which is why it tends to cost more.
Also, deconstruction may not be suitable for certain types of mobile homes, such as really old ones with asbestos. The cost of checking an old mobile home for asbestos can cost between $400 and $800. If you get a contractor to remove the asbestos, you’ll have to allocate around $1,500 to $3,000.
Mobile Home Transport in Arizona
If you have space to relocate your old mobile home, there’s sure to be a company specializing in mobile home removal and relocation near you. Just like demolition and deconstruction, there are certain steps in the mobile home relocation process.
- Get quotes from relocation contractors and select the best one for the job.
- Obtain the required permits for the removal, transport, and setup of the mobile home in its new location.
- The decks, porch roofing, and stairs are removed.
- All utilities are disconnected, the skirting is then removed and ties underground released. There may be instances when the mobile home is sectioned into two parts to be transported separately.
- The mobile home is lifted using a crane and then transferred onto a flatbed trailer.
- The mobile home is then transported, set up, and reconnected (if need be) in its new location.
Not all mobile homes are fit for relocation and transport. Therefore, applying for the necessary permits will help you ascertain if your old mobile home is in good condition or, at the very least, fit to be transported along the highway.
Again, clarify who will be in charge of getting and paying for the permits.
The cost of mobile home transport and relocating it is significantly more expensive than either deconstruction or demolition. Be prepared to spend anywhere between $3,000 and $12,000 (or more) for a mobile home relocation project. The cost includes the preparation, removal, and setup of the mobile home.
Relocation is more time-consuming than demolition and may take a few days to get done. For some mobile home owners, relocation may no longer be considered an option as it might be cheaper to just purchase a new mobile for setup in the intended destination.
Selling Your Mobile Home
Deciding to sell your mobile home is a pretty straightforward process. All you have to do is advertise it on platforms like Craigslist, local realty listings, or post about it on social media. You could also get in touch with a mobile home buyer or investor… like Phoenix Mobile Home! Did we mention that we buy mobile homes in Arizona?
Once you have a buyer, the mobile home removal process depends on what agreement you come up with together. Most of the time, however, the buyer shoulders the entire mobile home removal process.
The good thing about this option is that no matter how dated your mobile home is, you still get to make a little money. Your earnings can be more substantial too if your mobile home is relatively new and in excellent condition.
However, depending on market trends, selling your mobile home can take time, similar to selling real estate property. So, the waiting period will depend on local market demand.
