Full Answer

Discuss what the move entails with the mobile home mover, and make any requests regarding the move. To start preparing the home for the move, remove all its exterior attachments. Attachments such as a porch can hinder the transport on moving day. Flower baskets, awnings and anything that could potentially fly off the house during the move should be removed as well.

Make sure all utilities are turned off and that all cable, television and telephone lines are properly disconnected. Remove from the inside of the home everything that is valuable or that can be damaged by the move. Because the house is lifted onto a flatbed truck for the move, interior contents can be thrown around quite a bit. All large appliances and big pieces of furniture should also be removed, as well as any chemicals in the home.

As a precaution, check the weather for the move date and make sure it won't have a major effect on the move. Finally, secure any roofing or siding that may be loose, and bolt or board all windows and doors.
