Completed projects vary in size and weight, and shipping costs can vary quite a bit because of this.
Zyl Vardos contracts with reliable, experienced, insured tiny house shippers to deliver your house. Because the size and width of our houses varies, shipping cost is different for each house we send out. Usually, a rough calculation can be made by: Multiplying the one-way trip by $2.35, then adding $200 to that number.
It is usually very easy to site a Zyl Vardos house. However, sites vary widely, and sometimes a bit of work or extra equipment is needed. Advice on how to safely site your house is free.
Shipping of any structure heavier, longer, wider... and/or farther than what is listed above is possible, but the per/mile cost is somewhat higher and total cost will depend on the specifics of the house and route.
Structures with no wheels can be shipped on a lowboy trailer by a shipping company, price will be determined by quote. Cost of siting stand-alone structures is your responsibility. It may be necessary to have a crane or lift available when the shipper arrives. Zyl Vardos can coordinate your shipping/siting project for $55/hr, not including the actual equipment/labor to site.
Siting and setup of your project may be extra, depending on the type of foundation, shipping method, and structure of your house.
Winter shipping, especially if any mountain passes must be crossed, may result in a slower delivery time.
NOTE: Do not remove your house from the tow vehicle until it is properly secured using chocks on all wheels. If you are on or near a slope, you may need to use additional specialized restraining devices.
