When it comes to the installation of your demountable through our crane service, a specially designed lifting cradle and straps are used so that there is no risk of damage to your structures and vehicles. We also only use the most experienced truck drivers and crane operators to handle our demountable buildings.

Durable construction

As a manufacturer of modern demountable buildings, we ensure that they are constructed with the best durability and reliability materials, including solid steel frames, structural framing that is resistant to termites, insulation, and durable cladding. Because of the quality workshop building process, demountable homes are fabricated together leading to better protection from the elements (including from cyclones), have quicker building schedules and lower costs. That is our main goal for every project or home that we are building. See our previous demountable projects that we build with passion and expertise.

How We Build Demountable Homes

All of our demountable homes are created in a factory, specifically our Darwin workshop, by experienced technicians and builders. Our portable homes are built in pre-fabricated ‘sections’ that slot together and can just as easily detach for the purpose of simple transportation. When it comes to the frame, steel is our chosen metal; it offers a high level of durability while also resisting temperatures, termites, and the harsh weather you might find in the Northern Territory.

With section-based construction, we can check that each of the home’s individual components match our high standards, letting us work more efficiently while ensuring you get the demountable home of your dreams. Because we build it in a factory and then transport it to your location, we know the home is fit for purpose and can handle any subsequent relocation. We still build these homes to our clients' specifications, and we always work closely with you to make sure we realise your vision – a transportable home is your creation just as much as it is ours.

The Purpose of a Demountable Home

The central selling point of a demountable home is the way you can transport it from place to place. You could get sent across the country for work, or you might just want a change of scenery; regardless, leaving your home behind can sometimes be more difficult than leaving the place. Whether you have lived in a particular building for months or even years, it’s easy to get attached to it – with a demountable home, you can bring it with you wherever you choose to go.

An unfortunate side effect of moving is needing to get to grips with a whole new layout, and you may struggle to fit your life into a new space that is nothing like the last. However, demountable homes provide you with an opportunity to keep the same space but change the surrounding scenery – every penny you spend on your home during or after the construction will still be with you at your new location.

Extra Benefits of a Demountable Home

Our bespoke demountable homes offer an unparalleled level of customisation; we build them in a factory, but we still make sure every house is special and exactly as you desire. On top of this, the homes are cost-effective, and you can easily sell yours in the future like any other property if you so desire, and the fact that it can move will do wonders for its market value.

Portable homes also require less maintenance than most other homes due to their focus on durability, and the factory construction is helpful for the environment – there is minimal site disruption and next to no waste for you to worry about. On top of this, when you move, there is almost no evidence there was even a house there – this keeps the area looking tidy and leaves the land free for others to use with little hassle.

Frequently asked questions

What is a demountable home?

The definition of a demountable home or transportable homes darwin covers any dwelling unit designed and built to be transported in prefabricated sections from one position to another. It is not permanently attached to a site except for the supply of essential services.

What do I need to be aware of before building a demountable home?

Development approval from state and local (council) government. You can find all the information you need on the development application process at the Northern Territory Government's Land Planning and Development website.

Are transportable homes cheaper?

Demountable homes are much cheaper than traditional varieties for a range of reasons. Because they are prefabricated, less labour is required, and all components can be ordered wholesale to drive down expenses. There is also a reduction in costs because of the reduced use of connections and joiners. These savings continue after the installation because you can power your demountable building using solar solutions or 12V power.

What is the difference between a prefabricated or modular home to a demountable one?

The key difference is that a demountable home can be transported to a different location. They are not attached to the land, so should a homeowner want to stay in the same place, but change their home, it’s easy for them to sell the demountable one and install an upgraded version. Likewise, if the homeowner wants to move place but not property, a demountable home means this is possible.

A prefabricated or modular home is built in a similar way in that it’s made and constructed in a factory, but this type of building is not designed to be transportable.

How long do demountable homes last?

With good care and a sound maintenance programme, demountable homes should last at least 50 years. Regular painting and keeping on top of any minor works means you’ll be able to enjoy maximum benefit from your demountable home. The materials used in building this type of home means they’re especially durable.

What type of material is used for demountable homes?

Modern demountable homes use modern materials. At Demountable Sales and Hire, we choose termite resistant frames, light weight, durable panel materials and sound steel structures. Each of our buildings is designed to withstand the rigours of the NT climate, including being resistant to cyclones as well as high temperatures.
