House Relocation with Meier

At Meier House Removals, our expert team can relocate your house in a variety of ways. No matter your requirements, we will safely raise and transport your home to your new location without the risk of damage.
Our house relocation services include lifting and transporting your house to a new site. We may be required to split your home in two to safely transport your whole property. However, you can be rest assured that your structure will be re-joined on site without ruining its integrity.
We want to ensure the process of transporting your house is completely risk free. That’s why we organise police escorts, pilot vehicles, shire council road bonds and transit insurance – all necessary components of a house relocation.
All aspects of house relocation involve top-quality, professional service and precision placement. House relocation involves strict building and construction standards in all aspects of planning, relocation and positioning. With over 30 years of experience, our house relocation professionals will take every precaution to ensure that your move is conducted perfectly, eliminating any risk that may arise.

There are many reasons to relocate your house. When done by trained professionals, relocating an existing house can be a faster, cheaper and better way of securing your dream home. Hiring a house removalist can be a great alternative to building or buying a new house. You can purchase a vacant lot and save 40% of the costs needed to build a new home.
Relocating your house also opens more opportunities to increase the value of your existing home. You can undergo an extension, correct design flaws inherent in the layout, move to a more suitable neighbourhood, avoid hazards, lower your insurance premiums, or prepare your lot for a subdivision.
WILL YOU NEED TO SPLIT TO MOVE
Large homes and buildings can be split into two or more parts to be transported safely. Rest assured we’re able to split homes and rejoin them on location while keeping the integrity of the home itself.
REMOVAL COSTS WITH MEIER
Our quotes include house delivery, police escorts, pilot vehicles, shire council road bonds and transit insurance. You will have the option of restumping with Meier or with your current builder so we either include or omit that cost accordingly.
PLANING AHEAD FOR RELATED SERVICES
You need to consider the additional costs of soil tests, engineering plans, electricity and plumbing reconnections, septic design, reroofing, local council completion bonds and council lodgement fees. If you are restumping with your own builder, that will be an extra cost to consider also.
Frequently asked questions
In most council areas, houses that are over 8.5m wide can be transported in a single shift but will require an engineer’s certification and thorough inspection of the route. In some cases, houses need to be split. If you are moving your home via the Redland Shire Council areas, including islands like Macleay, Moreton, Stradbroke, and Russell, homes larger than 7.4m will need to be split into two parts.
If you choose to complete the works with your builder, we can shift your house to its destination and place it on holding blocks. Alternatively, we offer complete services such as raising, steelworks and re-stumping.
When moving your home, you’re looking at a two week period to obtain all necessary approvals before shifting it onto the road. It is then a further two weeks to re-stump, approximately. We are reliant on you gaining approval at both the exit and arrival locations and the size/height of your house will determine which services are required. On average, the process is four weeks from start to finish.
The position and height are essential to be marked out by your surveyor – a form 16 will be issued upon completion. Additionally, ensure you obtain the following plans and documents:
- Engineering/structural plans
- Soil tests – this is important if we are re-stumping for you
- Approved building plans which should always remain on-site
Absolutely. We offer our own re-stumping services but we’re always happy to work with your builder throughout the process.
We encourage you and your family to come and watch when your house is removed. It’s a sight to behold when your home drives down the road on the back of a truck and involves some “hold your breath” moments when the building is lifted over parked cars and bridge structures. The flashing lights of the police cars and pilot vehicles are always entertaining for the kids. It’s exciting stuff!
