Whats involved and our most frequently asked questions
Moving a house’s position on a block can be done for many different reasons. Regardless if it’s house spinning, sliding, raising or a combination of these services, Meier House Removals has the expertise to make a massive job feel seamless.
Sliding a Home
Sliding a home on a larger block can allow for extensions and/or sub-dividing, this is one of the many reasons that our customers opt to reposition or slide a home; particularly in a heritage precinct where there are restrictions on demolition.
Rotating a Home
Rotating a home can be organised to optimise the property’s views and improve sun exposure for solar purposes and outdoor areas.
Raising a Home
Raising a home can open the opportunity for splitting a home and adding multi-story options while staying within your council’s by-laws.
WORKING CLOSELY WITH YOUR BUILDER
Meier will work with your builder to ensure we have all of the important information prior to any action; particularly, the accurate positioning of any new stumps and completed soil tests to evaluate all requirements before beginning the re-positioning.
WORKING WITH YOUR SURVEYOR
In our 30+ years of experience, we’ve found that working with a surveyor in the final stages is vital to ensuring your desired height and position on a block are clearly indicated to our team. We pride ourselves on making sure your house is perfectly positioned the first time.
OPTIONS FOR RESTUMPING
As part of the repositioning process, Meier House Removals fixes new horizontal crossbeams to reinforce the base of your home. Once your house is in its desired position, you have the choice of using our experienced team or your own builder to re-stump the structure.
Frequently asked questions
For safety reasons, the tenant cannot stay in the home throughout the process as power and plumbing will be affected.
The average house slide, spin and raise can take between 2-4 weeks from start to finish. It is extremely helpful to have clear engineering plans and soil tests to ensure your project is on time.
Cleaning up after a site is not factored into our costs but we are happy to arrange it for you if you desire.
For a seamless process, ensure you have:
- Engineering plans
- Soil tests – very important if we are re-stumping for you
- Building plans
- Form 16 – issued after a surveyor has inspected the new site
