Thanks guys after doing more serious and intense research, I am finding more reliable mover with prices within these ranges. Instead of the crazy prices I been finding earlier. I have already attended to the skeptic tank issue for I knew there would be something someone somewhere would try to find a...

RE: Cost of moving a mobile home

I am in southern Indiana. Nope, around here they don't believe in selling them unless they absolutely have to. Once these people pay for one they stay in it until it fall down or a tornado tear it down. Whichever one comes first! :lol: But seriously thus, I hear you about the economy, if things keep...

RE: Hurricane Season 2009

My town got hit by a tornado two days ago, no one was hurt or property damaged. But we seems to get hit all season long in Southern Indiana and have had a few even in the winter if it warms up a little.

Harry, thanks for your letter, here people moves all the time because by the time most finish paying for one home they find it senseless to get into debt again to buy another one. A few people around here does that. I guess some people just love paying mortgages. LOL!! I have just started the projec...

RE: Cost of moving a mobile home

I have hired people several times to do the reconnection, ( here these contractors must be different from the movers. ) when the home arrive in the new place. That's another problem this constant not honoring what they say they will do is creating. Several contractor have had to give me the down pay...

Re: RE: Cost of moving a mobile home

Hi, I do believe those quotes are way out of line, or at least they are for my area. Harry mentioned the stuff involved in moving a mobile home. In my area, the set up crew has nothing to do with the plumbing and electric, this is done by those professionals. Call some of your local MH dealers and ...

Re: RE: Cost of moving a mobile home

Hi Moving a MH and setting it up can cost a lot of money. There are a lot of factors involved: mileage, labor market, skirting, steps, air conditioning, power, plumbing, grading, soil testing for pier supports, tie downs. How much of the work can you do? Harry Thanks Harry, I can do some of this wo...

Question this time about high utilities

I noticed someone named Middymom asked a question about extremely high utilities bills. I too had a house before getting a mobile home and the cost was about half what I pay now. I have an 15 x 76 and my bills are around 300-400 per month when I had my house my bill was about 140-180 per month. My h...

Re: RE: Is water under a mobile home bad?

Hi Yes ... water under a MH can be bad. To inspect for possible damage you would need to go down under with a bright light. Harry Thanks, I went under there when the main pipes were fixed and I saw what look like the under padding stuffing coming out from around the main sewer line. So I crawled un...

Is water under a mobile home bad?

I read someplace where there could be no standing water or dampness under your mobile home. I am asking because where mine's sit there stood water for quite some time. Water often settle in the yard and run under the house the past few years after the land owner fixed the pipes running through the p...

Cost of moving a mobile home

I brought a lot 120" x 96" almost 5 years ago, it is already equipped for a mobile home but my problem has been getting it there. I have met all the requirements asked of me such as zoning and etc. But I keep getting the run-around by movers as to how much it cost to move a 15 x 76. What is the nat...
