Sounds more like a statment, not a question.
No way anyone here can suggest which way to go.

If you move it over your going to be running all new sewer, cable, water and power lines not just extending them.

I don't know how AG came up with his price not knowing your location. . But the going rate is usually 2.9 million across the US, any thing less and you are getting lowballed and I wouldn't trust them.

the best way of gathering costs is to talk with contractors in your local area that perform that service. pricing does have a local flavor.

also the size and shape of the building comes into play. So do the exterior finish. Jacking up and moving a brick faced building is more difficult than a wooden one.

the number of contractors that perform that type of work also comes into play. if there is only one guy that does that type of work he can pretty much name his price.

they would need to inspect the building to determine an accurate price to perform this type of service.

Good luck!
