Frequently Asked Questions

If you have other questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

What’s included in the house price?

All finishing lines such as the door hardware, mirrors, towel rails, toilet roll holders, shelving, plumbing, and electrical f ittings are included. Laundry unit, bathroom vanity, shower, and kitchen with cooking appliances are supplied and fitted. The interior is fully painted and carpets and vinyl fully installed. Ex-yard permit and code compliance are included.

Can I make any customisations?
Due to the demand for quick, efficient and affordable builds, we do not offer the flexibility to make any customisations or design changes to our standard floor plans.
Are transport and foundations included in the house price?

The costs for transport and foundations are site specific, therefore not included in the house price. These costs are determined during estimate stage and upon investigation of the Geotech report. For initial enquiries, we can provide indicative costs for transport and foundations.

How long does it take to build a house?
Once the consent has been issued, our construction time is generally 6-10 weeks.
Do you organise the building consents?
Our homes come with a building consent for the house itself, however an on-site consent is required from the local council in the region the house is being moved to. This is necessary to demonstrate compliance with local town planning, building regulations, and other applicable rules. We can organise the on-site consent where required and have a dedicated person who specialises in on-site consent applications.
Do I need to make an appointment?

If you have a site already and you’re ready to explore the possibility of a transportable home, your next step is to make an appointment with a knowledgeable representative to help guide you through the process. As our factory is a construction site, all visitors must follow our Health & Safety policies and procedures. i.e. wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Children under the age of 16 years are not permitted in our factory. 

Do I need my own contractors for any stage of the project?

You will need a builder for decks, steps, and on-site building work, a plumber to connect the house to water, storm water, and waste water systems, and an electrician to connect your new home to mains power. 

What sort of guarantees do you offer?

BUILTsmart provides product guarantees for all materials and items used in the construction of the home. In accordance with the Building Act, we provide a 10 year workmanship guarantee.

What deposit is required and how are payments structured?
A 10% deposit is required on signing of the building contract with progress payments based on stages of works competed.
Can I purchase a completed stock home?

Yes, when purchasing a completed BUILTsmart transportable home from any one of our factories we will require a one-off payment in full before it leaves the yard.
