Since you want cleaning, doors (maybe with porch too ?) and a cinderblock foundation, plus should have wind/seismic tiedown modified or installed along with the new foundation, that calls for a General Contractor who does that sort of work.


AL does not have a category for mobile/manufactured home work like this - you could google for trailer home setup or mobile home moving companies and then cross-check their company names on Angies List for any reviews or ratings related to another category.


Or locate some well-rated Remodeling - General Contractor (your Search the List category) firms and start calling around for ones who do mobile home work and foundations.


One other thing to consider - especially if in an area with winters so the foundation will have to be deep enough to get below frost penetration depth - if your current frame height above ground is 4 feet, is the foundation has to get a foot or three into the ground you are well on the way to a daylight basement. If not in an area prone to flooding or high groundwater, you might have them price that as an option to see if you want to invest that extra $ - I have never seen a trailer owner who could not use more storage space, though granted to be functional and dry it would have to be heated, which does add some to your heating bill and would likely require an additional heating unit in there.
