It doesn't look like anyone out of the last 590 posts has given you any direct dollar figure answers to your question so I will tell you what the fees are we often see in connection with mobile home loans throughout different states (see our site - http://MH-Loans.com ).
The prices will vary greatly depending on where you are in the country. It is more expensive generally to move a MH in California than it is in say Arkansas, but that is to be expected.
You also need to know that Singlewides are considerably cheaper to move that multi-section homes like doublewides.
The type of foundation and the lot location are important. If there is only vinyl skirting that needs to be removed and no brick or block to knock out that is cheaper.
The more difficult it is to get in and out of the lot there can be additional expense.
To get to the prices we have seen:
Singlewides:
We will commonly see costs of between $3K to $8K (average of about $5K) to move a SW.
Doublewides:
The average price we see to move a DW is around $15K. We have seen complex moves in expensive areas like CA that ran $75K and more.
These wide variations in conditions and the specific needs of moving your home is why you find it difficult to get a simple answer to "how much will this cost?" without getting a quote.
We would suggest that you employ a licensed, insured, and bonded mobile home mover. The money you think you are saving by using anything less can cost you dearly. If you are getting a loan to move this mobilehome, we will insist that you use a properly licensed contractor anyway.
You may just want to get two or three estimates and make sure that you ask specific questions about exactly what is and is not included with your transport and what (if anything) will trigger an additional expense.
Hope this helps.

Does anyone know if a 2007 Fleetwood doublewide can be moved from Tampa, FL to NC (Raleigh area)? I thought a home could not be moved from zone 1 to zone 2 according to the thermal zone map provided by HUD. Has anyone successfully moved a home from FL to NC? If so, what was final cost?(We purchased the home in 2007 for $96,000. The house is currently listed for $59,000 and I'm still unable to find a buyer. I believe part of the problem is that the area surrounding this gated community is not a very good one.) We are running out of options and are considering moving the house to NC. Any advice or input would be most welcome.

Please anyone that can help, I would appreciate it.
Thank you
Nita,
Were you successful in having your home moved from Ocala to NC? I have a 2007 double-wide in Tampa and have no luck in selling it. I'm presently in NC and am considering moving the house here but have no idea where to start. I've emailed Fleetwood to see if the house is okay for thermal zone 2 but have not received a reply to date. Any advice you could offer would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

I just had my 1971 12 x 60 mobile home moved 1.25 miles from one mobile home park to another one with lower lot rent in the same town in NY state. My original park charged me a $1250 fee to break my one year lease (even though it was up next month) and I paid the moving company $38,000 to move the home plus another $14,000 in state permits to complete the move. It certainly isn't cheap to move a mobile home.

That is ridiculous, I just did a similar move of 7 miles in Monticello to Loch Sheldrake, 14x70 with a 10 x 26 addition, complete tear dow, transport and set up, came to 6800 with permits. State and county permits only cost eighty five dollars.

I need to get a quote on moving an empty 24x32 school portable from Moncks Corner, SC to E. Dublin, GA. It is about 245 miles, and 95% interstate driving. It has wood and metal beam construction, metal siding, and is wired for electrical. No plumbing, no skirting, no axle or wheels - sitting on blocks. Not sure what all is involved. I guess it needs to be split into 2 parts to move, and once it reaches its destination - the area would be all ready for it. It would just need to be set in place and put back together. If you are a mover, or know of a good mover, please contact me at [email protected]

Whew! we just had our 97 singlewide moved over 30 miles in New York State. The reason it was so hard to find someone is because there are so many added safety regulations that the transporters have to deal with. They have to be licensed by the state, insured (your mobile home insurance doesn't cover damage while moving), and get the proper permits
from the Dept. of transportation in order to move on their roads. The guy we finally found was a gem!
