There are multiple ways to remove a trailer and each way costs a different amount. In this blog we will go over a couple of ways and how to get the best deal.
How large The Mobile Home Is
The size of a mobile home will obviously be the main expense factor when looking into demolition. So of course, a double wide demolition costs more than a single wide demolition. More square footage means more work and debris.
Whether you're demolishing it, deconstructing it, or relocating it the size will matter.
Contents of the Mobile Home
When removing the debris the more stuff that is left inside the mobile home will make the cost of demolition and removal go up.
Weight plays a large role in pricing, not just the left-over junk inside but the weight of the trailer itself. Newer mobile homes can weigh more than 10 lbs. per square foot which is more than an older mobile home so newer mobile homes cost more for demolition.
Permit and Inspection Fees
In practically every zoned township in the country, mobile home demolition requires a permit.These permits generally require a fee, these fees can vary depending on what part of the county you may live in.
When you are having your mobile home demolished, make sure you discuss who will be responsible for getting the necessary permits with your contractor and if it is included in the quoted price.
Equipment and Services
Disposal fees can drastically increase the cost of a mobile home demolition and is another process you should make sure to discuss with your contractor.
When having your mobile home demolished you will need to make sure that the contractor you choose disposes of the home properly to avoid any additional fees added to the project.
