My Husband and I have been the proud (well not so proud) owners of a Mobile Home that split in half while being transported.
We had hired a Licensed Mobile Home Mover to transport the Mobile Home to the dump.
It actually was a ‘condemned’ Mobile Home that needed to leave the MHP.
The Mobile Home split in half on the neighborhood, paved, city street in front of the MHP.
Initially, the Mobile Home Mover took both ‘halves’ back to the MHP.
The Mobile Home Mover ended up moving ‘half’ of the Mobile Home to the dump.
The other ‘half’ of the Mobile Home was demolished onsite at the MHP.
We paid the Mobile Home Mover the entire ‘Moving Fee’.
In addition we paid someone else an additional fee to demolish the other half of the Mobile Home.
KurtKelley’s comments are great in reference to what he would tell the Mobile Home Mover:
“1) never move a home you think might collapse during a move.
2) you’ll be responsible for moving something off the highway and to storage that you started moving.
3) simple home collapse isn’t going to be covered under your Cargo Insurance policy - they’ll exclude that
4) Getting paid for that move is the least of your worries now”
Jefferson, you indicated that you hired the Mover.
Since you hired the Mover, you are probably liable for ‘some’ amount of the move as the Mover did do some work.
However, as KurtKelley indicated that the moving expense is probably the least of anyone’s worries.
We wish you the very best!
