We make sure we take into account all aspects of your property, including its dimensions, materials and any council approvals needed to ensure a fast service without causing any damage.

The Benefits

Many houses are positioned poorly on a lot, and by raising a house and spinning it around, you open the space up for new development and subdivision opportunities. You will be able to fully maximise the space of your lot to give you more space in your front and back yard. By doing so, you can install a garage, tennis court or swimming pool or add another structure to your lot such as a granny flat. You will also be able to improve the amount of natural sunlight, and if you live in coastal areas, reduce the likeliness of erosion caused by ocean conditions.

House relocation and removal
Two or more sections


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.

Our transparent quotes


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.

Outside costs to consider


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!
