Your first step is to assess what your needs are. Do you need a building raised, moved or are you wanting to buy a building? Next is to find out from your local municipality what their regulations are regarding the work you need done. You can then contact us and we can give you some preliminary information and pricing. With all this information, you can then assess whether this is a project you want to continue with. At this point we will do some site visits and discuss with you exactly what your needs are and quote a firm price.
The moving permit is obtained by us, but you will require a building permit, a development permit or both. Again contact you local municipalities building dept. for their regulations.
There are few physical limitations to what can be moved, only financial. Almost any building can be moved, but not all are feasible to move. Unfortunately we are not able to move Single Wide Trailers, anything below 20′ wide, as we do not have the trailer dollies to move them. But the best answer is to contact us and we will give you our professional opinion.
Yes. The most common is line raising expenses. If the building is over approximately 17’8″ loaded; power, telephone and cable companies may need to become involved. Each move is assessed and you would be told if there would be any costs over and above the move price.
Generally speaking, you must have all services disconnected, clean and strip out the basement/crawlspace of the house, including the chimney.

There could be some other requirements, but after assessing your job we would provide you with a written quotation and list of all your responsibilities.
Not always. The majority of the work is in the loading and unloading of the building.
An average building of 1200 square feet, will usually take 2 – 3 days from start to finish.
There will be minor cracks in the drywall. If there is lathe and plaster in the building it will probably crack more than drywall.
