Bellevue WA House Moving

Bellevue WA House Moving

Moving an entire house is a trend that’s fast catching up in Bellevue, WA. Buying an old home for a bargain and relocating it is a great option for people who want to own a home but can’t afford one.

However, the house moving process requires several permits. You need to be aware of the regulations and the permits that these would necessitate in your state. And when you want to relocate the house interstate, you will have to deal with multiple local authorities.

Here are some regulations to consider before you consider the option of Bellevue WA house moving.

Permits for the Move

At the bare minimum, you will need a permit for the move from the local building department. Your Bellevue WA house moving service should arrange for permits from the DOT, and also arrange for police escorts if necessary. If any demolition of the existing foundation is necessary, you will need to acquire necessary permits.

Mover’s License

The trade licensing requirements and permits vary by municipality and state. Verify the licensing credentials of your Bellevue WA house moving services with the DOT. Some states mandate that the structural mover also carry a general contractor’s license. Be sure you and the mover understand the licensing requirements to avoid any last minute holdup.


The mover must carry insurance covering your property, the public and his employees working on the move. Once the house is removed from its foundation, the homeowner’s insurance will become invalid. Check with the Bellevue WA house moving company to ensure they have cargo insurance to cover your property on the move including the contents inside.

At the New Site

You will need a permit for building a foundation at the new site. A permit for unloading and connecting the building to the new foundation will also call for a permit. You will also require necessary permits if you plan to undertake any renovation work.
