There comes a time when an element of property seems better placed somewhere else. For reasons of profit, convenience, or function, the location of a structure is an enormous component for its valued success and we understand the importance of that. We have moved a plethora of shapes and sizes, from the awkward figures of a structure with irregular openings and asymmetry, to the straight-forward simply-constructed masses; there isn't a piece out there that we can't conquer. Can you tell we're excited?

The fusion of man and machinery can yield extraordinary results, defying logic with remarkable moves of structural elements you'd never image could be displaced. Some interesting and challenging moves that we have collected under our belt include:

  • Boston's elevated historic Orange-Line train stop (part of this relocation was over water!)
  • Springfield's massive National Historic Register's Alexander House touting in at an impressive 460 tons
  • And others, from local diners, ferries, over-sized sculptural pieces, and countless more


At Encore House Lifters we have the tools to move structures weighing over 800 tons. All required equipment is our own, and there is never the need to rent – saving both time and money. We can move a vast selection of structures – from homes to barns, commercial structures, modular homes, boats, barges and more – made from a wide variety of materials including stone, block, brick, concrete, steel or log. Our collaboration of two family owned and operated businesses  provide our clients the benefit of decades of experience and a continued commitment to quality and performance.
We take care of all aspects of the process, starting with the support and lifting of the original structure. From there, we will trim/remove trees that pose a challenge, remove overhead utility lines, take care of traffic control and excavate should your project require this step.

Moving your existing structure may seem like a huge undertaking – and it is. But it can also provide many benefits. And at Encore House Lifters we have the experience and superior skills to make the process as painless as possible.
