To add a little bit to everyone elses comments.
An obvious suggestion, but have you tried to buy that home to keep it from moving, and find that owner another home? That owner has to move a home either way, but if you keep the home from leaving, it will save you $3k to move another one in, not to mention the hassle of a move.
Its reasonable for the park to expect the mover/owner to clean up the lot after the home is pulled. But once the home is on the road and out of your park, everyone completely loses their incentive to clean up. I know, I’ve lost that incentive myself many, many times. You might want to ask for a deposit from the owner prior to the move, and return it if they leave you with a clean lot. If the lots a mess, at least you have some money to pay your guys to clean it up.
I’ve never seen any movers ever pull anchors as part of the move. I wouldn’t consider that a measure of a good mover. And I’ve never seen any park ever ask a mover to do it. When I pull homes, I always pick up all debris, blocks, sewer lines, tires, etc. I leave the anchors, but I take the tie-down straps. Then I take a picture of the lot, so I can’t be accused later of leaving a mess.
A couple years ago I pulled a home out of a park in Kentucky. The park owner was there when we left, and told us not to worry about a handful of blocks left around the lot, he would clean it up. Later that afternoon, the woman living next door walked across the empty lot, tripped on one of the blocks, hit her head on another block and was killed. I never heard another word about it, but I sweated that one for awhile. I’ll bet that woman’s family owns that park right now!
