How To Choose The Right Cabin Rental Company

The popularity of intergenerational living is on the rise! No matter how much you love your family

Choosing the right cabin company to rent a portable cabin from can be a big decision.
How do you know which is the right cabin company for your needs?
Luckily, we are here to make the decision easy with our top tips for helping you choose the best option for your family.
All you need to do is follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Research

The first thing to do is to look at what’s on offer in the market. Research your options to see what each cabin company can offer you. Google is a good place to start for this task. You can also ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have undertaken this process before. Put together a list of companies you like the look of to investigate further.

Step 2: Check Their Reputation

Now it’s time to see what other customers think about the cabin companies you have shortlisted. Look for reviews and testimonials from previous customers to see how each cabin company operates. Pay attention to comments about the quality of the cabins, customer service, delivery process, and overall satisfaction.

Step 3: Understand Their Offerings

Explore what each cabin company is offering in terms of cabin sizes, availability and location. Most companies will offer a range of different sized cabins to suit varying needs.
At Just Cabins, we have three different sized cabins that can be configured in a huge number of ways and we can deliver to almost any level of access. Check out our cabins here.

Step 4: Look At The Quality

Regardless of what you are using the portable cabin for, you want to ensure it is good quality so that you, your family members, or clients stay warm and dry while inside. Look at the construction materials and quality, whether it is insulated, if it is powered, if it has opening doors and windows, and the cabin’s durability. You want an option that is going to last!

Here at Just Cabins, we only provide the highest quality, well-insulated cabins for your comfort.

Step 5: Assess The Cost

Now it’s time to establish whether your preferred options fit within your budget. Obtain quotes from the businesses that interest you the most. Make sure you check their pricing structure and rental terms to see if they fit with your needs. Pay close attention to additional fees charged for delivery, setup and security deposits so that you aren’t surprised by hidden costs.
At Just Cabins, we accept weekly payments and only charge a one-off delivery fee and bond to keep things simple and manageable for our customers. You can check out our standard rates here.

Also if you are after WINZ support, check with the local company if they make it easy for you to get a WINZ quote and if needed help you with the application. All Just Cabins operators are WINZ registered and can help you with any WINZ quotes.

Step 6: View The Cabin

To get a true feel for what your portable cabin is like, it's a great idea to view an example in person if possible. That way, you can get a true feel for the quality of the cabin and get the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
At Just Cabins, we have display cabins for you to view all over the country. Simply enter your location here on our website and you’ll be able to find the closest display cabin to you.

Step 7: Ease Of Delivery

It is important to know, particularly if you have a difficult site to place a cabin onto, that the company can deliver and maneuver the cabin into the correct position. Sometimes it may require a site visit or assessment to determine the most cost-effective way to position the cabin correctly.
At Just Cabins, all our cabins are on wheels to make it easy to deliver and position a cabin, even on slightly uneven ground. To find out more about delivery options simply  enter your contact details and address here to discuss with your local branch operator .

Step 7: View The Terms

Take a look at the proposed rental agreement to ensure you are happy with the terms. Pay attention to details such as rental duration, payment schedules, cancellation policies, and maintenance responsibilities. Also, don’t forget to find out about the delivery and set-up processes, ensuring the cabin company services your location and can handle the access levels at your property.

Step 8: Choose Your Company

After following the above steps, you should now have all the information to make an informed decision about which cabin company is the right one for you.
