How to Move a Mobile Home for Free in Arizona
Are you thinking of getting a new mobile home or having a house constructed to replace your old trailer house? Did you inherit a property that comes with an old mobile home you don’t really want or have any use for?
In such cases, your best option would be to get the mobile home in question removed from your property, especially if it’s occupying space you’d rather allocate for something else.
However, you need to remember that getting rid of an unwanted mobile home on your property requires planning for certain tasks and expenses. Of course, you’ll be mostly concerned with how much it would cost to move a mobile home, including the preparation, removal, and cleanup services.
Well, have you ever heard of free mobile home moving in Arizona? Does such a service exist?
Phoenix Mobile Home provides this free service if you want to get rid of that mobile home in your yard.
In case you’re wondering if there’s a catch, there’s none at all. In fact, we’re going to let you in on some information about how to move a mobile home, including paid and free options.
How much does it cost to move a mobile home?
If the foremost question in your mind is, “How much does it cost to move a mobile home?” you’re right to be concerned because it can cost you thousands of dollars. Of course, the total cost will depend on the option you go for.
Below are paid mobile home moving services and the corresponding estimated cost to move a manufactured home.
Note that these services only apply if you’re just after getting rid of the mobile home and have no intention of using it elsewhere.
- Demolition: Getting an unwanted mobile home demolished by a professional demolition contractor is one of the safest and easiest ways to get the job done. However, you also need to factor in the permits required and the cost of the service. On average, you’ll have to shell out $3.50 to $5 per square foot, so a 15-foot by 50-foot mobile home may cost you around $2,600 to $4,000. To get some added value, negotiate with your chosen contractor and talk them into including the securing of permits and the fees in the total cost.
- Deconstruction: If you’re after an eco-friendly mobile home removal method, deconstruction is the way to go. It entails the systematic tearing down of old or existing structures to salvage reusable materials. Like demolition, deconstruction also requires permits. However, it tends to cost more or nearly double a demolition job because it takes longer to finish.
Aside from the above, there are two other paid options you can consider if your intent is to preserve the mobile home.
- Relocation: This can be an option if you just want to move your mobile home elsewhere — to be used by you, a relative or rented out. But before any work can be done, you need to know first if your mobile home is still fit for relocation and transport. And since the cost of relocation could exceed what you’ll spend on either demolition or deconstruction — about $3,000 to $12,000 or more — you might be better off buying a new mobile home instead.
- Selling: If you are able to successfully close the sale of a mobile home, its removal may no longer be your concern, as the buyer typically takes on the cost of moving it to a new location. The problem with opting to sell your mobile home is that you’ll also need to pay for listings and advertisements. You must be prepared to wait for interested buyers to get in touch, too. If you hire a real estate agent to list your property, you’ll have to pay them a fee or commission. You’ll also need to allocate a budget for the listings and ads.
Free mobile home removal options
Yes, there are free mobile home removal opportunities you can look into. These options, however, only apply if you intend to continue living in your mobile home.
- Trailer or mobile home parks that offer free move-in services: Some park owners, operators, or mobile housing groups offer mobile homeowners incentives to move into their park or facility for free, especially when there are several empty slots.
- Locations or lots that offer free move-in specials: Community owners may waive move-in costs to make their location more attractive to mobile homeowners looking to move to their area.
In these cases, you need to clarify what’s included in the free move-in offer, as you may still need to budget for permits and utility hookup services.
You may also choose to DIY your move if the location is nearby. Moving a mobile home with a pickup is one such alternative. But you need to be prepared to make several trips. You should also consider whether you’ll require paid help for the preparation of your mobile home for removal and putting it back up together.
