House Relocation


This process involves moving the entirety of a home. When you relocate a house, you are lifting it from its foundation and moving it to another prepared location. This allows you to pick and choose, matching your perfect house with the perfect location. Some people use house relocation for the home they already own, while others choose to buy a house for sale and then relocate it to prepared block of land. The choice is up to the owner, but it should be discussed with a professional to make sure the process is safe and legal.


Relocating requires specialised preparations. Most local councils have rules and restrictions about relocating a home, which is why all your plans must be checked in advance and approved by all proper authorities. This includes the councils where the home currently resides and the councils where you wish to move the home. The home must be checked for problems like asbestos, and the land must be appropriately cleared and prepared with plumbing, electricity and more. The home must be measured in order to make sure it is a good fit for the new location prior to any service. Other tests and applications must be completed in advance.


The actual relocation itself can be exciting and terrifying for the home owner. The process requires the right equipment and preparation. The home must be readied for separation from the foundation, and the new site must be cleared of all impediments and new foundations must be in place. Then, the home will be lifted off its foundation and loaded onto a truck. Once secured, the truck will transport the home to the new location. Here, the house will be placed on the foundations and must be properly supported to ensure that no significant damage occurs.
