What we do
Moving an object is a difficult process that requires precision and expertise. The size and weight of the structure are important factors. We use sturdy I beams, placed underneath the object, to support the house during the move. It's crucial that these I beams don't deflect or bow as they are lifted, so if the structure is so wide that it sags off the side of the beams, crossbeams will be needed for additional support.
To lift the object, we use air bags, hydraulic toe jacks and, in some cases, large winch trucks. Once the structure is raised, dollies are placed under the beams to carry the load. After everything is secured, we tow the building to its new location.
