Prior to commencing your search for relocatable homes, it is essential to have a suitable piece of land. This requires ensuring that the land has adequate access to enable the delivery of a large house to the site and that there are no obstacles such as trees limiting access.

Additionally, it is important to secure financing that encompasses all costs associated with purchasing the house, including obtaining permits and Council consents, hiring plumbers, drain layers, and builders, and obtaining necessary plans.

When selecting a house to place on your site, it is important to take into account the size of both the house and the site. Additionally, it is worth considering how the house will be situated on the site, including which rooms will benefit from sunrise and sunset.

Once the relocatable house is delivered, it will require some work to complete its installation and make any necessary renovations. For instance, a builder will need to tie the house to its foundations and install steps and decks. They will also be responsible for performing minor remedial work, such as covering the chimney hole and tying the house to the piles.

If the house was dismantled during transport, a plasterer would be required to smooth out any cut lines on the gib board, ceiling, and walls. All of these steps are crucial for ensuring that the house is installed securely and looks great once it is in place.

Apart from the expenses associated with purchasing and installing the relocatable house, there are additional costs that you must consider. These may include plumbing, electrical, renovation expenses, and landscaping fees.

Your local council is likely to mandate several reports that you must obtain. A geotechnical report, for example, will help determine the stability of your land. Additionally, a stormwater report may be required to assess how wastewater will be managed on your property. If your property has a septic tank, you may also need to provide a sewerage report from a licensed plumber or drain layer.

We can connect you with companies that specialize in facilitating this process. Our network of professionals can simplify the consent process for you. Our team includes skilled experts who are eager to assist you with your council consent process.

To help you obtain insurance coverage for your house relocation project, we can connect you with our insurance broker. Depending on the specifics of your relocation, Contract Works Insurance may be necessary to protect your house during its transport.

Given the substantial investment involved in this process, it is critical to secure appropriate insurance coverage. That’s why we collaborate with a team of specialist insurance brokers who are intimately familiar with the relocation process and can tailor coverage to meet your specific needs. This provides you with the assurance and confidence you need to complete your project with peace of mind.

To explore financing options for your house relocation project, you will need to discuss your situation with your bank and KiwiSaver provider. It’s worth noting that some people assume that using their KiwiSaver or obtaining a KiwiSaver Homestart grant is not possible when relocating a house. However, in many cases, it is possible to apply for and receive both.

Kainga Ora, formerly known as Housing New Zealand, provides useful guidance on their website regarding which components of the Homestart Grant you may be eligible for when relocating a house. By following these guidelines and exploring all of your financing options, you can ensure that your relocation project is financially feasible and successful.

Sell and have a house removed off my property

Yes, we are buying houses all the time.

Houses that are on wooden foundations. We prefer to buy houses built on wooden foundations because they are typically easier to lift and transport than houses built on concrete foundations. Wooden foundations are also more flexible and can handle the stresses of lifting and shifting better than concrete foundations. In addition, wooden foundations are generally less expensive to repair or replace if damaged during the relocation process. Finally, wooden foundation houses are often older homes with unique character and charm that relocators and their clients may find attractive.

We need the power and other services disconnected from the house, then we come in and cut the house from its foundations and lift it and put it onto our trailers to take it away.

Move my house to another site or a different position on the same site

Yes, we move houses from one site to another.

The cost of relocating a house can vary based on several factors, including the size of the house and the distance it needs to be transported. Additionally, you may need to consider whether the house can be moved in one piece or if it needs to be cut into multiple pieces for transportation on New Zealand roads.

When budgeting for house relocation, you should take into account:

  • The cost of the house itself, including GST
  • Transportation costs to your new site
  • Costs associated with preparing and obtaining consent for your new site
  • Any additional expenses related to renovating the house once it is on its new site.

Proper planning and budgeting can help you save between 20% and 50% compared to building a new house from scratch. However, there are other factors to consider that could increase the overall cost, such as high roofs that need to be lowered and reinstated, the size of the house requiring extra concrete and timber for foundations, or wide loads that require cutting the house into smaller pieces.

Other considerations that can affect the cost of a house relocation include site access, such as obstacles that need to be removed for egress, and the time spent positioning the house on the new site. Finally, the distance to your new site may impact the cost, as transportation can only take place on certain roads during specific hours and the journey may take multiple nights.

What do you do when you move from one house to another?

An average-size three-bedroom home will take us approximately one week to move to your site and put onto new foundations.

We do offer the service, but it may not be cost-effective due to additional steps that need to be taken. In order to shift the house, it needs to be removed from the floor, which means that any fittings such as the kitchen and bathroom will need to be taken out and then reinstalled once the house is in its new location. These factors should be taken into account when creating your project budget.

We can but all the bricks need to be removed and the house would need to be re-clad at its new location
