3. The Weight of the Home
The weight of your home impacts the cost of moving it. Heavier trailers require stronger equipment, which usually ups the transportation charge. Newer trailers tend to weigh more than those built before 1980 because many have higher ceilings and are made with drywall.
4. How Far You’re Moving
Distance to the new location affects moving costs. While it may cost the same to move your trailer across the park or across town, it will definitely cost more to move it 50, 200, or 1,000 miles away. Gas will be the highest cost but mitigating the increased risk of mishap may drive the price up as well.
5. Permits, Fees, and Set-Up
You may have to pay for permits, inspections, and set-up costs. Moving to a new state? Be prepared. Different states have different regulations regarding incoming used manufactured homes. Some states require inspections before trailers cross their borders to make sure they are safe and up to code. Inspections may or may not be accompanied by a charge, but permits and set-up costs will certainly go onto your tab.
