House moving requires picking the house up from its foundation and setting it down in another spot, sometimes miles away. These moves can be complicated and require the removal of protruding parts of the building, such as the chimney, as well as obstacles along the journey, such as overhead cables and trees. Reasons for building relocation range from commercial reasons such as scenery, to preserving an important or historic building. Moves may also be made simply at the whim of the owner, or to separate a building from the plot of land that it stands on.There are several reasons why You would need a top notch structural moving company. For example, a redevelopment, such as urban regeneration, could cause a relocation. Additionally, it has been purchased and the buyer wishes to move it, for reasons such as the scenery from the building. The owner might also sell the land that the building is on, but keep the building. Another reason for the relocation of a building is to preserve it for historic interest.  Such a move could be made because a building is in danger at its present location.
