Steps to Buying a Home

The Home Buying Process

Manufactured Home Delivery

In most instances, your home will be transported from the factory to the retail sales center. There, it will be inspected by your retailer. Any damage done to the home in transit will be repaired before it is delivered to your homesite.

Before you finalize arrangements to buy and transport a home, make sure you have a written warranty from the transporter and/or the retailer that clearly outlines responsibility. Otherwise, if damage occurs during delivery, you could have a difficult time getting no-cost repairs.

All drivers must meet North Carolina Commercial Drivers License Requirements. In addition all homes are transported with an escort meeting the following requirements:

  1. Certified by another state's approved escort program, or
  2. A North Carolina law enforcement officer, or
  3. A person who is at least 21 years of age, or 18 years of age with a Class A commercial driver's license.
  4. Possesses a valid driver's license without restrictions other than for use of corrective lens and has a driving history without conviction of driving while impaired or reckless driving in the previous 12 months
  5. Has successfully completed an NCDOT oversize-overweight escort vehicle operator course with certification exam score of at least 75 percent (75%) correct and has received consequent certification by the Department.
