The property I bought has an older single wide that I want gone. I'm wondering if anyone knows a contractor in West TN who does this? Can't find anything on Google.

Try listing it on LSN first. You might get some cash or at least a free haul away. Or is it in that bad of shape?

If the wiring and plumbing is intact it has value to scrappers. There may be other things of value to contractors or junk yards. Call your local junk yard and ask if they know of anyone who will haul it off your property in exchange for scrap value.

Or advertise on Craig's list or any local sales magazine. If you don't already live on the property, don't advertise the address/location or else you'll be telling every scrapper in the county the location of something they can steal.

Also if you have a metal salvage yard in your county, give them a call.

They may want the frame but make sure they take the whole thing with them

No, it's just old. Worried whoever attempts to tow it out will have a problem with my hilly driveway

They got it in there somehow, so it should be able to come out. Unless trees blocking the original path have grown in since they hauled it in you should be good.

If it's still livable then you should be able to just sell it, even if the money you get only carries the moving cost. There is a surprisingly robust market for used mobile homes.

OMG, offer it to free to a family that needs a place to live! If it's livable, help someone out, don't just trash it!

Love this idea if it can be moved. Just because it was moveable in 1976 does not mean it is moveable now.

Have no problem giving it to a needy family, but they need to buy tires and pay for the move. That's been a problem.

Seriously?! What is with some of the people in this state? I understand what you are talking about. We always have extra veggies and eggs and such from the farm and I offer them for free to people around here. They tend to get ticked when I won't deliver all this free food............for free. Entitlement attitude abounds unfortunately. Have you tried a local site like LSN or something? Or a free page on Facebook? I hate seeing anything trashed if others can use it, but if they're not willing to invest some time and a bit of money for a FREE HOME, then you have no choice.
