Moving a House
What you need to know about Moving a House
Upon acceptance of the quote, contracts are drawn up signed, and a deposit is paid.
We have a draftsman who works alongside Queensland House Removers.
Plans of the house are drawn up along with engineer reports, and council approvals are prepared, this process takes between six and Eight weeks.
Once we have the approval for Moving a House.
A date for the removal is put in place, we then lodge permits for main roads, police and pilots, this can take up to ten to twenty-eight days.
The crew arrive on the site; they prepare the house for removal, some larger homes may need to be cut into two pieces.
The roof is removed and tarps are put in place to protect the house in case of rain.

Room is made underneath the house to make way for house trailers, steels are put in place underneath the house for support, and then the house is lowered onto the trailer.
The trailer is moved out onto the road/footpath ready to be shifted at midnight.
It will usually take our crew about three to five days to prepare a house for removal.
The Crew head home for sleep, return at around eleven PM ready for the shift.
At Midnight the crew is ready to go.
All house shifts need at least 2-3 police and two pilot vehicles.
If the house is cut into two or more pieces, this will travel as a convoy.
We have many owners go with us when the house is being shifted.
Moving a House can be a very exciting time, the arrival of the house onto what was previously a vacant block, can be quite exhilarating.
Going up over the gateway bridge in Brisbane with a house on the trailer behind can be an awesome experience. Raising the house as high as nine feet in the air to travel over the bridge guide rails, or lifting over parked cars, and angling through narrow course ways is something a lot of people don’t see every day, wow is normally what we hear when someone has been on a shift for the first time.
You’ll be surprised to see what goes on in the dark of night.
Once we arrive on site.
The House is unloaded onto timber styles, or steel house stands, if the house is cut it will be joined back together, roof put back on, then the house is stumped. This process can take anywhere from 3-5 days for a basic single shift, around 6-14 days for a cut.
Once we have finished, it is then it’s up to the client to organise connection of utilities.
We go anywhere throughout Queensland.
