Tough, especially if you are an individual, not a professional in the business.


House trailer moving/setup companies (no Angies List category for that) have them routinely - but most only use them in the course of moves they are getting paid for, not rent them out.


A House Moving company could also do the move - again, no Angies List category for that.


You could try used house trailer sales lots - they might store some to move their trailers around and rent them out.


Otherwise, I would contact a Crane and Rigging company or a Heavy Move company (the people with trucks which handle oversize loads - could easily pick the home and put on a two axle dolly (goes under the front of a standard truck trailer to allow it to be hauled as the second trailer in a duplex haul. Or could jack up or crane lift onto an overlength trailer for the move, or might even just (for 200 foot move) just do a few 50' or so picks with a crane - pick, move 50 feet or so, set on blocks, move crane, pick and move again - leapfrogging the 200 feet.


Personally, if I were doing it, I would just contact a trailer moving or heavy move and rigging company and let them figure out the best way. Trailer moving company could also do the levelling, tiedown, and utility connection if this is going into a new permanent location.

And don't forget you need wheels/tires not just axle, mounting U-bolts for the axle to fit your frame, towing light set, vehicle to tow it with correct hitch type (presumably a large pintle hitch), and a means of jacking it up/down during the axle placement/removal process - definitely more than one man and a bumper jack job - I sincerely suggest you get a pro trailer moving company to do it - commonly about $600-1000 range if not going on public roads with it so no lights, pilot car, route clearance, etc needed. (I inferred that from the 200 foot move), as opposed to the commonly $1000-2000 or more for an on-road move.


(That cost does not include utility disconnect or new setup, blocking, tiedowns, etc.)
