I hate to say this but your asking for a lot of work. You have to remove the molding, panel covers and roofing along the center line where the two halves come together. Then you have remove all the connection bolts that where screwed in to hold them together. Those are located all along the roof, underside and both ends of the home. Typically they are 8 to 10 in wood bolts. Disconnect the water lines between the two halves as well as the Electrics which you should now have access to. Now the hard part, you have to find a way to get at least 6 to 12 inches between the two halves by sliding the front half away from the back half. This is normally done using a special set of jacks that roll on rails and elevate the whole side at once so it can be maneuvered into place when it was assembled. This is the dangerous part. If the tongues where removed they are easy to put up since all you have to do is pull them out from under the home, where they normally hide them when removed, line them up with the plates they mount to and install the bolts to hold them. Make sure you use the original bolts which should be on or near them. If the bolts are missing you will need to locate suitable replacements. This is definitely a job that will take at least 3 people and preferably 4. You might be able to rent the slide jacks to to this from a heavy equipment rental company and I recommend you do so. You can do it all with 2 hydraulic jacks rated for at least 20 tons each but it is very difficult as you will need the same equipment to put it all back together. Don't lose any of the bolts or cover material that you remove since you will need ti to re-assemble the unit after it is moved. The Axles are usually removed when a home is delivered, at the very least they remove the tires and you will have to find those in order to move the home and it is safest to have axles under the home with tires while doing this work. Again, they bolt in place. Most likely, if your axles where removed, you will have to get them from a mobile home dealer who can also get the tires and rims for them, they almost always have a supply laying around. I understand the issue with money, I set and level my own mobile homes when I move but I have a single wide. When you set the home make sure you set and level the back half first then move the front half into place and reverse the process I gave you. Remember to block the home to the requirements of your state. Typically this is every 6 to 8 feet and make sure you block under doors and windows and the center line.

Where to get idea for kitchen renovation!! Is it right too hire contractors?

I think that one of the biggest benefits of hiring a contractor is the stress it saves. I work a lot and don't have a lot of free time so I almost always hire someone for my home repairs and remodels. It just depends on how much of your own time and effort you're willing to invest.
