Mobile Home Installation and Setup
The site where the home will be placed needs to be prepared for the mobile home before it arrives. It is possible for you to do this on your own, but any issues can significantly increase the installation cost of the mobile home. Preparation includes creating a level surface for the unit and ensuring the land is easily accessible for the large flatbeds. Elevated sites are best if possible to prevent issues with drainage around the home in the future. A concrete foundation is often the best foundation for mobile homes, but other foundations may be acceptable as well.
Once the site is ready, the mobile home can be removed from the truck and placed at the site. If the home needed to be split into two or more parts, these will need to be reconnected. The installation process can also vary based on the site conditions, but the home will basically be placed on the foundation on top of concrete blocks using a crane. After it has been put back together if needed and is properly situated on the foundation, the utilities can be connected. It is necessary to have the home inspected and certified as safe before the utilities can be turned on. Choosing a professional mobile home installer is always the right choice.
There are a few different types of mobile homes. Newer park models are often the easiest to move, as they can hook up to a truck like an RV. However, older models often need to be moved on flatbeds to ensure the home is not damaged during the move. Single-wide beds can also be transported on a flatbed, and they’re transported in one piece. Specialized equipment is still needed for the safety of the home and the homes will need to be disconnected and installed in the new location.
Double-wide mobile homes are twice the size of single-wides, so they must be cut into two pieces to be moved. We can do this, as well as reconnect them at the new location. However, because they do need to be moved in two pieces, they are often more expensive compared to single-wide mobile homes. Triple-wide mobile homes can also be moved but, like double-wides, they do need to be taken apart so they can fit on the truck and be moved. These are the most expensive type of mobile home to move and they do require expert assistance to ensure everything is done correctly.
