Moving a structure is a complex endeavor and many variables such as the building’s size, age, accessibility, location, and route distance affect the cost to move a house. We would be happy to provide you with a quote free of charge.

The structural integrity of your home will not be affected during the moving process. CHM knows how to measure the weight, install the equipment, and safely transport your house from one location to the next.

Moving a house can take anywhere from hours to days to weeks; the move time depends on the distance of the route, any location restrictions, or structural limitations. Total project time varies, and we recommend you contact us to discuss availability.

Definitely. If your home is located in a flood zone, then raising the structure of your house can help. When hurricanes and other natural disasters require homes to be elevated or relocated, Carolina House Movers is the expert team you need.

Do you have another question? With over 30 years of experience, we know the answer. We would love to speak with you.

This is a first class professional operation! Our home had to be cut in half before being moved. We followed both parts during the 7-hour trip to go 20 miles. We were amazed at all the hard work involved in getting it ready for the move and the actual move itself. They put the halves of the house back together perfectly! We had forgotten there were three large hanging mirrors in one bathroom and they were all still hanging on picture hooks when house arrived safely to our property. We highly recommend Rusty and his crew!
