There will be a charge of $250.00 per opening which is left out, but permission to leave openings out must be from MHM, Inc. There are some openings which must be in the basement in order to successfully set the house down.

Milbank House Movers, Inc. carries $250,000.00 insurance on the house from the commencement of the moving job until the house is set down on the basement or foundation. The insured value is the price the customer pays for the house at the time of purchase. As stated above, the insurance does not cover shingle, eve, siding, or cracks in walls or ceilings. (Coverage begins with our first act required to prepare for the move, and ends on the completion of the last act required to finish the move, or 120 days, whichever comes first. Additional cargo insurance may be purchased, and will be billed to the customer.)
Customer is responsible for checking with the city and/or county as to the permits required and the ordinances regulating the building codes and the tree trimming. MHM will coordinate any of the moving permits associated with the move.
Some moves will require a police escort for any state roads, county roads, and some cities. This is at the customer’s expense. MHM will coordinate escorts needed for move at a rate of $750.00 per day minimum. (Customer will be billed escort fees on most houses 36’ wide or more.)
Basement or foundation walls MUST be at least 24 inches out of the ground level---the beams CANNOT be pulled out from under the house if the openings are below ground once it is set down. No window wells may be installed prior to setting the house on the basement as they interfere with the setting of the house and removal of the beams and equipment. The landscaping fill dirt can be placed around the house after the moving of the house.
Sill sealer & basement posts MUST be available at the time of moving. Customers are encouraged to build a center wall under the house, thus eliminating the need for a header.
MHM, Inc. must be able to drive along side of the basement or foundation the length ways, or there is a charge for rolling the house on endways. There are to be NO BOLTS sticking out of the top of the basement or foundation walls, customers are advised to use “mud sill anchors”, which is available at most lumber yards. The customer is responsible for fastening the house to the foundation. Basement floors are to be poured at least one week prior to moving and setting the house down.
