A manufactured home, or mobile home, is a house built in a factory and transported to the site where it will be permanently located. They're called "mobile" because they can be moved from one location to another without being taken apart or reconstructed. But what does it take to transport these structures?


The first thing to consider is the size of your manufactured home. Is it going to fit in the truck? You may be able to find a larger truck with more room, but you'll have to pay extra. The next thing to do is ensure that your manufactured home is in good condition and ready for transport. This includes ensuring tight windows, doors, and other openings so no water can leak out during transportation.


Before moving a manufactured home, it's important to determine where it's located and what kind of terrain you'll be dealing with. For example:

  • Does the home have access to a road? If not, then getting materials in and out will be more difficult than usual.
  • Is there enough room between trees or other obstacles for delivery trucks to turn around? This can also affect how often they need to return for more deliveries.
  • How steep is the ground surrounding your mobile home? Steep slopes make it harder on both people and vehicles during transport, so, if possible, try to move somewhere level before loading up your new house!


Distance is important. The distance of travel will affect both the cost and size of your transport vehicle. If you're moving a tiny home (under 1,500 pounds), a pickup truck might be appropriate for transporting it. If you have one closer to 5,000 pounds or more, you'll likely need to contract with a professional company that can bring in something more significant than an 18-wheeler.

The total distance of the trip will also influence how much it costs for the company to move your manufactured home. This is because fuel costs are based upon mileage and time spent on the road (not just by driving).


Not all cities allow mobile homes inside city limits. This may not be a problem if you plan to move outside of town, but in some cases, it could mean changing your plans entirely (and losing money in the process).

Next, check with local building codes and regulations. Some areas require permits for mobile homes even if they are being moved from one location within that city or county and placed on property owned by the same owner. In addition to any permits required for moving a manufactured home within an area that does not allow them within city limits or county lines, there may also be additional requirements depending upon what type of soil or land you will be placing the structure upon once it arrives at its final destination—this includes whether or not water will be flowing through pipes directly beneath where your new home will sit!

Before buying anything else—like furniture! —it's advisable that potential buyers also check with their local fire department regarding whether or not fire safety standards apply differently when considering placing a manufactured dwelling on wheels versus one built right onto permanent foundations such as those found underneath traditional houses built using cement blocks instead.

Hire The Right Company

You should also research the company's reputation and decide if they're a good fit for you. It's always wise to work with a company that is licensed, insured, and has a good reputation. Check their reviews online, and ask your friends and family members if they know of any companies that are reliable and trustworthy. Be sure to ask about their policies on damage and delays as well.
