House Moving Basics
If you are unfamiliar with the structural moving industry, I would like to add that we do not move furniture, most types of mobile homes, or trailers. Instead, we move built in place structures of all types. This includes, but is not limited to, brick, cement, or stone structures, steel or wood structures, trains, planes, tanks, boats, bridges and various other thought of unmovable structures.
Why would someone move a structure?
Clients move homes and structures for a variety of reasons. A commercial property owner may choose to sell the structure on their land in order to avoid costly demolition. At the same time, a client may purchase a home which must be relocated to a new property. Many of clients are moving historical structures of all types in order to preserve decades of history.
How much does it cost to move a house?
The cost of moving a homes varies widely. Although structures may look similar, their construction, foundation type, environment, and overall general condition will greatly influence the ease or difficulty of the job and consequently the price. Contact Deitz for a project consultation.
How long does it take to move a house or building?
The time frame of each project varies. While the actual move may take one to three days, preparations and finishing construction may take one week or several weeks depending on a variety of factors.
Will my home become damaged during the move?

How will the resale value of my house be affected?
In many cases, the resale value of a home will increase once it has been relocated. Clients are encouraged to seek a professional appraisal of their home once the project has been completed.
