JoeS, where in Florida are you located? Can you let me know the movers that give you these great rates?
The movers I have contacted are charging astronomical rates compared to what you have posted.
I am in Brevard county.

It all depends on the width of the mobile.
I can have a 14’ wide moved for $190.00 within a 50 mile radius(including escort). A 16’ wide will be $300.00 within a 50 mile radius(including escorts). For anything over 50 miles, they charge 1.90 per mile for the truck and .70 for the escorts.
These prices are a little high but this particular mover is a no nonsense type of guy (ie he’ll be there when he tells you he will). Remember anything over 14’ wide will require 2 escorts in the state of Florida.
You can save some money by asking the mover for a day rate. Same thing goes for escorts. Movers typically charge $200.00-300.00 for the day and escorts are around $135.00.
BTW, dont forget to include your tear-down cost and the possibility of having to use a dozer to move the home around so that the mover can get to it. Some of these parks are a real tight squeeze.
Hope this helps.
Best Regards,
