I have seen house/trailer moving companies with these as part of their equipment, but have never seen them for rent.


I would try trailer moving/setup companies, new/used trailer sales places that move them for initial intallation after sale, and tool rental places - if they don't have them, be sure to ask if they know who might. You could also try people like ATCO trailers who rent portable office and construction camp trailers, because they commonly do not leave the wheels and/or axles on when putting them in place for a long period of time.


Local crane and rigging companies might have them, or might be able to come up with themalso.


I am guessing you will not readily find any for rent - those that have them will want the contract for the moving too, which I would say is probably a good idea as an individual moving mobile homes can get into a lot of trouble, starting with road permits and allowable times for movement on certain roads and flagging and escort requirements, etc.


Another thing I have done is just pick them up and put them on an extended lowboy trailer and strap them down and transport them that way, lifting with a large front end loader or truck crane, depending on weight.
