House Removing is a very old form of recycling. There have been many forms of house removing procedures practised thoughout the centuries (see attached photos for interest sake).
Kilmore House Removers is a member of the International Association of Structural Movers (IASM), USA. Visit its web site for more information on the history of house removing.
