When it’s time to move your house to your land, as owner's you are welcome on the shift. Dave and the crew leave at midnight under police and pilot escort. We relocate your home and if the house is cut into two sections, this is done carefully and with all consideration to the aesthetics of the building and all sections of the house are securely tied to the trailer when loading. Where a part of the roof has been removed to reduce height, tarps are used to prevent water damage. The owner will be required on site at daybreak to ensure the house is in the right position before unloading. The unloading, rejoining sections of the building and roof placement are usually finished on the day of arrival at your land.
Prices quoted are G.S.T. inclusive and cover the purchase and the removal of the building to the new site within our surrounding shires, including up to Gympie shire in the price and any further distance, an additional charge may apply. Houses are included from the depot’s location to within 100km then there is a charge thereafter.
All our prices include stumping your house on new steel stumps to a height of 600mm above ground but G.S.T. is applicable on all extra work.
- All our work is insured by QBCC
- Public Liability on all of our jobs
- Building's insured by us against structural damage from commencement of our work until lowered onto foundations
Used houses are structurally completed but no services connected in the price. We can help you arrange tradesman to complete your house, but in most instances it will be cheaper for you to arrange this with your local tradesman.
