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.

Frequently asked questions
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.
