A Portable Offices

Transportable homes in Darwin are a great alternative to building a new home if you're looking for something temporary. They can be built on your land, or they can be moved onto your lot if you already have one.

Transportable homes are also much cheaper than traditional homes, so they're a great option if you're on a budget.

They’re also an ideal choice for those who want a temporary residence while they’re exploring different parts of the country or the world as our range of temporary homes is every inch as luxurious and homely as modern houses – and they’re waiting here for you.

Common features of transportable homes

They’re built on steel frames to last

Transportable homes are often built on a steel frame, which allows them to withstand the rigours of being moved from one place to another. This is ideal for those who like to move around, as our range means that not only can they do this with ease, but they can also do this without worrying about potential damage to their homes.

They’re built with natural light in mind

In addition to being built on a sturdy frame, our range of transportable homes have large windows that allow in lots of natural light. These large windows also allow for more ventilation during hot days and provide an excellent view of the surrounding landscape for those who enjoy spending time outdoors. This means that you can easily enjoy Australia’s natural beauty right from your front room by propping up the window and relaxing.

They’re built to be customisable

Transportable homes are, first and foremost, homes. This means that we all want to kick up our feet at the end of the day in our own space, surrounded by our own belongings. To make this possible, our range of transportable homes is built to be customisable.

So that you can do this with ease, we’ve made our transportable homes so that they can be customised with a range of additional features such as porches or decks that you can put off the back side of the house. This is an especially popular feature as it means that you can relax watching sunsets, or even catch some air whilst staying dry during rainfall.

For more information, feel free to contact a member of our team to discuss the specificities of our transportable homes today. We can provide you with floor plans for each type of home we carry.

They’re built to be secure

Transportable homes come equipped with a high level of security. Most have steel doors and frames, which are more difficult to break through than wooden ones. The security systems that come with transportable homes are also extremely secure, and many include cameras and alarms, though in most cases this is for you to purchase and fit separately.

All in all, this means that you can sleep a little better at night knowing that your transportable home is keeping both you and your belongings safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are demountable homes good for the environment?

Demountable homes are much better for the environment than a traditional properties for a number of reasons. They have a much lower carbon footprint due to the type of construction used to fabricate the buildings. They are also designed with efficiency in mind, so energy usage is lower (which also saves on energy bills!) and temperature is more easily controlled. Moreover, the materials used in the construction of demountable homes are more sustainable than traditional housing.

How big can my demountable home be?

The beauty of a demountable home is that you have the option to extend it as much as you’d like to. There’s no upper limit to the size of a demountable home - if you’d like to add another bedroom in a few years then you can do that with no issues. There aren’t any regulations regarding maximum sizes for demountable homes. 

How easy is it to move a demountable home?

One of the biggest selling points of a demountable home is that you can move it to another location. Whether you’re moving for work or just fancy a chance of scenery, a demountable home gives you the power to move with your property. The process of moving a demountable home is quite straightforward, although it does require a professional property mover. The process itself isn’t too involved and you don’t have to pack up your belongings for the move. All that’s required is the disconnection of service lines before loading the home up and moving to the next destination.
