Meier will work with your builder to ensure we have all of the important information prior to any action; particularly, the accurate height of the house (as marked by a Surveyor) and positioning of new stumps and completed soil tests to evaluate all requirements before beginning the raising of the house.



In our 40+ 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. A Form 12 from the Surveyor is required by the Private Certifier on completion of renovation.



As part of the restumping process, Meier House Removals can hold the house and support the house with our temporary steel beams and sty blocks depending if it is a full replacement of stumps or a partial replacement of stumps. Once your house is in its desired position, you have the choice of using our experienced team or your own builder to restump the house.
