Move a Mobile Home Yourself vs. Hire Movers

It is actually illegal to move a mobile home by yourself. You’ll have to work with a licensed mobile home moving company, acquire a moving permit and check building codes and other laws for where you’re moving.

While you might want to move the rest of your stuff on your own, it’s highly convenient to hire movers for the entire job. The average cost to hire movers is $1,170.
