While demolition is the most popular method of mobile home removal, deconstruction is another option worth considering.
If your mobile home is in good structural condition, it could be worth deconstructing and salvaging materials.
Costing as high as $8,000+ in some cases, deconstruction is more expensive upfront, but you can often recoup your losses with the materials you salvage.

Factors Affecting Mobile Home Demolition Pricing
Costing $3.50-$5 per square foot on average, there are a number of things that affect the cost of mobile home demolition.
Common factors that influence the total cost of mobile home demolition include:
- Size of the mobile home.
- Location and accessibility of the mobile home.
- Contents within the mobile home.
- Removal method used.
- Whether or not foundation needs to be removed as well.
- Who you hire to do the work.
For example, if your mobile home is located in a city with a high cost of living and high waste disposal fees, you can expect to pay more to have it demolished and removed than someone who lives in a town with low disposal fees and a low cost of living.
Similarly, if your mobile home is a double-wide and full of various contents, your demolition will cost more than it would to demolish an empty single-wide.
Your exact mobile home removal project cost will depend on these factors, and the best way to get an accurate estimate for your project is to reach out to multiple contractors in your area for a quote.
This not only ensures you pay a fair price but also allows you to choose the best contractor for the job, not just the cheapest.
