Q:    What sort of houses can be moved?

A:    We can move just about anything, including stucco. When moving a brick house all the bricks will have to be removed first and the house reclad after it has been moved.

 

Q:    How do you charge for a move?

A:    Moves are charged by the time taken. The route travelled, size of the house, degree of difficulty and the materials required at the time will determine the cost of the job.

 

Q:    What other costs are involved when moving a house?

A:    Building permits, connection of services and any renovations that may be required.

 

Q:    Who is responsible for getting the permits?

A:    Moving permits are the responsibility of the mover. Building and demolition permits are the responsibility of the homeowner when Brittons are moving an existing house for a client. Building permit is the responsibility of the client when a house is being purchased from Brittons.  We can help you in that process by providing you with as much detail as possible about the house we have sold you.
