Why Are Portable Cabins So Popular?

There are plenty of reasons why portable cabins are gaining popularity. These are just some of the reasons why customers get in touch with us to rent a cabin:


Renovating a home or building a permanent structure can be expensive and time-consuming. Portable cabins offer an affordable alternative to gain space without having to engage a builder or pay for building materials. You simply pay a weekly rental cost for the duration of the rental period and that’s it!


Portable cabins can serve a wide range of purposes. They are just as suited for a bedroom space as they are for a home office area. That means they can easily transition for your needs. It might start out as a second living space and transition to a teenage retreat. Or a home office that could transition to a guest bedroom when needed.

Quick Access

Building a permanent structure at your place could take months, but a portable cabin can be delivered in a matter of days if your local branch has availability. Then, once our expert team are onsite to deliver, installation is quick and easy. As the cabin sits on its own trailer, it is simply a case of securing and levelling the cabin, then connecting it to power.

Temporary Solution

Portable cabins are perfect for short-term solutions, or open-ended house guests. In some cases, you may only need that additional space temporarily. For times like that, a short-term lease on a rental cabin is the perfect solution. We do have a minimum rental period, but once that is completed, you can return your cabin at any time by simply contacting your local office.

Cost Of Living Solution

It is no secret that the cost of living keeps climbing here in NZ. Sometimes it is too costly for family members or friends to go out and rent their own place. But a portable cabin on your property is an affordable way to have a safe and comfortable space to call home. A great way to combat the cost of living while still offering independence in their own private space.

Connecting Families

It is super easy to lose touch with family members or miss connecting as much as you normally would. But portable cabins are a fantastic way to bring families back together. They provide private space for family members to stay, right there on your own property. Keep your loved ones close all the time with some additional space.
