About Us, GRDennyandson.com


Founded in 1989 by co-owner Gary R. Denny a fifth generation Arizona native, G R Denny and Son Structure Relocators has been serving Northern Arizona with a broad array of house moving, rigging, and shoring abilities for twenty years. Prior to purchasing the house moving business where he served a three year apprenticeship, Gary was involved in all phases of building construction. From hands-on trades like masonry and building framing, to superintendent positions for commercial contractors, Gary’s knowledge of building construction and design helped to make building relocation a natural fit. Eager for challenge, Gary enjoys to this day, a trade that exists without a manual and offers something unique with every new job.

“What I like best about house moving is that no one can tell you how to do it.” If a person is self taught and hands-on, there can be no delegation of responsibility. In an industry with an extremely high danger level and only one opportunity to get things right, this is the only attitude that can prevail. Gary has taken special care to teach his son Garrett when needed, but more importantly, he has provided an atmosphere in which Garrett can learn on his own. This progression of leadership will insure that G R Denny and Son will continue to provide quality relocation, rigging, and shoring services well into the future.


When a building slated for demolition is relocated, the finite resources required to build the structure are completely reclaimed. Furthermore, and what is seldom contemplated, is that the energy required to construct the relocated structure also conserved. From architectural thought, to finite fuels required in powering saws and providing transportation of personnel and building materials to and from the job site, to the water required to mix mortar and clean paint brushes; everything is conserved. With this in mind, structure relocation must be considered to one of the greenest industries in operation. Monies saved by purchasing and setting a relocated home can be reinvested in energy saving retrofits like dual-pane windows and up-graded insulation to insure that a relocated home is as energy efficient as newly a constructed home.

As an avenue for affordable housing, building relocation is pretty hard to beat. In most cases where the owner is capable of providing some “sweat equity”, buildings can be completed for as little as one-half the price of new construction. As an investment tool, building relocation provides a short turn-around time saving dollars on costly construction loans and putting your money to work as income property in a fraction of the time of new construction.
