Delivery disaster, or no big deal?

Post by Skold » Wed May 18, 2016 7:29 am

We are having our double-wide delivered to our land. It has to go down a hill off of the county road. The first section high centered and the rear of the frame drug for the last 50 feet or so and the roof line was noticeably curving.

Is this really bad, or how would I know? The delivery guys said it's ok but of course they would say that. How do I determine if there has been damage done?

It is a 76' long home so it's quite a behemoth.

Thanks!

I would check to see if the frame rails are bowed. You can check by stretching a string tightly along the frame rails and comparing the straight line of the string to the bottom of the frame.

Also, look underneath to see if the two sections match up OK.
