Frequently Asked Questions

What are the payment terms?

To kick off the exciting process of designing, obtaining consent, and scheduling your build, you'll only need a 10% deposit. Progress payments are then spread throughout the construction process at key milestones outlined in yourcontract, and these payments are as follows:

  • 30% of the total contract price once materials are ordered
  • 30% of the total contract price once the roof is installed
  • 30% of the total contract price once your build is complete Full payment is due before the building is removed from our site

Are there any restrictions to the size of the build?

We can build up to 15.4 metres with the option of 4.0m to 4.5m wide with our largest single build being 70m2. If you're wanting to go any larger we have our Modular range where we can combine any of our single builds giving you the ability to build 3-4 bedroom homes.

Check out "Our Range" for more information or head to our Facebook and Instagram pages for more examples.

How are your buildings delivered on site?

We transport our buildings on flat deck trucks and then crane them onto your site. Our partners at McLeod Cranes and Hiab’s will initially complete a desktop review of your site before you accept your proposal. We will also arrange a site inspection confirming transport is possible. During the site inspection, they will let us know if any site preparation is needed, such as removing fences or trees.

Can we make changes to the design?

Absolutely! We understand that every customer has unique needs and preferences. That's why all of our floor plans are adjustable, giving you the flexibility to design a building that perfectly suits your lifestyle.

Can I change the kitchen plan?

We have incorporated the most popular kitchen layouts into our standard floor plans. However, our project managers and partners at Hostess Kitchens will work with you to personalise this space to match your individual needs and preferences.

What does MBS take care of?

We help you with everything you need for your new build, from getting the necessary council consent to constructing and delivering the build to your site. We also offer a 10-year guarantee and a fixed build price with no hidden costs.

Where do you build your homes?

Your build is completed in our purpose-built factory located at 36 Herschel Street Ngaruawahia, which is a 10 minute drive north of Hamilton.

Do you offer finance?

We can help arrange finance by putting you in contact with banking partners who understand transportable homes.

How long will the build take?

A standard build will take 6 weeks to complete once construction begins. However, starting dates may vary based on our existing project schedule. Please contact us to confirm the current lead time for your new build.

How do the power, water and septic systems work?

Our homes come pre-piped and wired with Code Of Compliance, so all you need is an on-site contractor to complete the connection. We have a list of contacts across the country that we can provide you with, or you are welcome to use a local contractor.

Depending on your property, you will either need to connect to town services or install a septic and water system. A septic and water system is only required if your property doesn't have connections to town supply.

Do you have show homes available to view?

We have a fully furnished show home that you're welcome to view. We love showing customers through our factory and the homes we're currently building. Our production line process means that we always have homes at different stages of construction on site, so you can see the entire build process from start to finish.

Do I need building consent?

Short answer Yes. You will need a building consent for any building with a kitchen or bathroom. We will coordinate and manage the consent process, from start to gaining approval. You will have a dedicated project manager to oversee the process and work with you every step of the way. All our homes come with Code Of Compliance and approval for both the building and your site.
