HOW DO WE RELOCATE A HOUSE?
Using hydraulic custom-made trailers to manoeuvre and lifting to 3 meters where necessary David and his team can travel through the hardest routes with the tightest roads and onto any site effortlessly.
All consideration is taken to the aesthetics of the building and all sections of the house when loading, the house is tied down to the trailer to secure for transport.
Where a part of the roof has been removed to reduce height, tarps are used to prevent water damage. The unloading, re-joining, and roof placement are completed with precision.
The crew normally leave the holding yard at midnight under police and pilot escort and arrive to the owner’s site in the early hours of the morning. The owners are required to be on site at daybreak to confirm the position of the house.
