Kiwi Hydraulic Trailers


Kiwi Trailer

Hydraulic kiwi trailers use a system with hydraulic controls to transfer the house’s load directly to the transport vehicle. This allows for smooth transport and relocation. The trailer can carry a maximum weight of 15,000 lbs. and has a maximum speed limit of 20 mph.

When it comes to moving houses, we believe there should be a system that provides a smooth ride and makes the task as efficient as possible.

This depends on the type of building and where the building is located in the state. In almost all cases, after a permit is obtained the building can be moved with proper supervision and stand-by equipment. When moving a building over one-and-a-half stories high, utility wires may have to be raised which, depending on the number of wires involved, increases the price of the move. In some states, it is possible to move a house for miles. In certain highly populated areas, due to narrow roads, bridges, utility lines, trees and traffic control issues, most buildings are normally only moved a few blocks away, across the road, on the same lot or across a field.

Generally the entire process of moving or raising the home and building the new foundation is completed in one or two weeks. Weather conditions, our schedule and the masonry contractor’s schedule must be taken into consideration however.

  • Pre-cast concrete block and pads:  16″x16″x4″ concrete pads are placed on top of the ground with 8″x8″x16″ concrete tile dry stacked and shimmed to level.
  • Cedar post:  An 18″ diameter hole is drilled approximately 30″ then an 8″ pad of concrete is poured and leveled.  A cedar post is then cut to grade and set on the concrete and backfilled with dirt.
  • Concrete piers:  An 18″ diameter hole is drilled approximately 30″ then an 8″ pad of concrete is poured and leveled with 2 1/2″ rebar extending to attach the pier.  An 8″ diameter cardboard tube is cut to grade, installed in the hole and poured with concrete to grade. The pre-cast foundation is good for a rocky non-expansive soil or a sandy soil.  The object of the cedar post and concrete piers is to set the base of the pier in an area where the moisture level is constant.  This stops the soil from expanding and contracting.
