Well I'm Louise and help is great I found this answer/ Perhaps it will help someone else. Your new home should come with a homeowner’s manual and manufacturer, retailer and appliance warranties. The homeowner’s manual usually contains important general maintenance and safety guidelines. The manufacturer’s warranty usually covers defects in the workmanship of the structure and plumbing, heating and electrical systems installed at the factory. Appliances installed at the factory are also covered. The retailer’s warranty typically explains the terms of the warranty and the services the retailer will provide. Appliances may be covered by separate warranties that include use and care manuals if they are not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. It is important that you read and understand all warranties so you know what is and isn’t covered. You should also find out how to obtain warranty service, and learn how to properly maintain your new manufactured home and its appliances to ensure that your warranties will be honored.
Site Preparation and Placement
If you place your new manufactured home on land that you intend to rent or buy, it is important to consider zoning requirements, restrictive covenants, and electrical, water, and sewer connections. Make sure that all permits have been obtained, especially in low lying areas. Not only will you be responsible for your utility connections, but you are also responsible for the preparation of your site, except in rental communities. Proper site preparation includes the removal of all debris, sod, tree stumps and other organic material from the area where footings will be located. You should take special care to trim organic material to a maximum height of eight inches in the area where the manufactured home will be placed, and remove all debris. It is important to ensure that the exterior grade slopes away from the home to prevent surface runoff from settling under the home. Another issue to consider is whether there is adequate access to the site to prevent damage to the home during transportation.

I looked in the yellow pages for mobile home movers.

You could also go to a trailer lot and ask them if they would move your trailer. They have the equipment or contacts.
