Default Mobile home removal cost

Anyone experienced in having a dilapidated mobile home removed from property? Looking at a property that has three mobile homes that are totaled and immobile. Any ideas on cost to have removed? San Antonio area.

Thanks

Jay

We had a guy haul one off in trade for moving and setting we brought in. His original quote was $1500.

Since you have three of them I would hire someone to bury them as already stated. Done.

Depending on condition some movers will remove them for free to resell

Depending on condition & location. You can donate them to the fire department for them to come do training on and ( if approved by TCEQ) be burned down.

Somebody around here the other day was telling me it was not worth the work and money spent getting all of the "hazardous materials " off/out of one to get to point TCEQ would approve burning but that is hearsay

See if you can find some guys that want to build a trailer. They use the I beams and sometimes the axles.

We had one on a place we bought last year. cheapest I found was 4k to have it moved, because they would have to take it to dump. I tried to get vol. fire department to light it and use it for training but they could not. I ended up renting a track hoe and getting three 40 yard dumpsters. it took 2 days but had it knocked out for less than a grand. This actually might be your best bet. And to makes a huge mess, We had to use cutting torch for the frame

Thank you for all the help. Gives me a better idea of cost involved if I get the land.

When I bought my place there was a old mobile home on it all run down. Thought I was going to have to pay to have it removed. I put it on Craigslist with some encouragement for 2K and got 7 hits in less that 2 hours. The first one who showed up and put money in my hand completed the purchase. Not only did I get $1500 for the trailer, he repaired my fencing and cleaned up.
Put it on Craigslist and you will sell it. The guy who bought mine bought it to refurbish for a trailer park. Better than costing you money to get rid of it.

EDIT
I see you wrecked it...OH well.
