Transportable Homes are Cheaper

Why Transportable Homes are Cheaper than Traditionally Built Homes?

 

Pre-manufactured homes are an attractive housing solution because of their affordable cost savings.

 

Fast and Efficient Assemble-line Production

A transportable home is like any other product that is mass-produced by the factories.

 


Automation

Many parts can be built by machines on an assembly line; cut and constructed fast.This eliminates human labor which can be costly, susceptible to errors and slow in comparison. Relocatable homes are produced like a car with less human intervention.

 

Less Wasted Building Materials

Most items of the transportable homes are pre-designed and fabricated using standardised designs; saving on waste material during production.

 

Less Time

Therefore, portable homes are built within hours and minutes rather than in days and months.

 


Bulk Purchasing and Volume Discounts

The building materials used in the transportable homes is purchased at wholesale prices, directly from the manufacturers and suppliers; much cheaper than a local builder buying building materials for one house at a time.

 

High Quality, Less Problems

Portable Homes are built in a controlled environment where everything is checked by the experts and engineers. With so many of an individual design being produced, building systems are constantly improved. This kind of expertise is not available to the traditional home buyers as each and every home is a one off and this is where ‘issues’ and delays occur.

 

Transportable Homes are Permanent Houses

Transportable Homes are Permanent Housing Solutions, … until moved again.

 

Transportable pre-manufactured homes are built to completion and delivered via truck, however they are a form of permanent housing. It is only where the home is constructed and how the modular home is delivered to its destination that makes it any different from a other permanent houses built on your land by a builder.

 

Relocatable homes are approved by engineers and
have to come up to the Australia Building Code Standards. Portable homes have to meet the same certification and gain the same approvals as regular houses built using traditional methods, even more because they may have to be moved several times during their lifetime.
