What areas do Just Cabins service?

We pretty much cover all of New Zealand and we’ll do our best to get a cabin to you no matter where you are.

 

What sizes are Just Cabins?

We have three different sizes of cabin, with the following dimensions:

  • Standard cabin is 3.6m long x 2.4m wide
  • Large size cabin is 4.2m long x 2.4m wide
  • Extra-large cabin is 4.8m long x 2.4m wide

How high are Just Cabins?

You will need a 3.3m height clearance (from trees or house eves).

How wide do I need the access to be?

Entry access should be 2.7m wide so the cabin can be towed onto your site.

What if access is too narrow?

A hi-ab can lift our cabin over most obstacles (carports, fences, retaining walls etc.)

How much room will I need?

You will need approximately 5m x 3m of reasonably level ground.

How do I connect the electrical?

We supply a 15 metre long heavy duty lead with your cabin. This can be plugged into any normal three pin power point in your home (or if you are building, you can use the builders pole/box). If you need a power lead longer than this, please let us know.

What electrical does it have?  

Each cabin has two double power points, one internal light and an exterior light.
All our cabins also come with an Electrical Warrant of Fitness, a switchboard and smoke alarm for your safety and protection). You can safely use any electrical appliances in your Just Cabin.

Are they painted?

Yes, cabins come as new, fully painted inside and out.

What colours are they?

All cabins come in neutral shades (like Sisal, which is a light cream color) which looks great.  

Will we need a building consent?

As our cabins are on wheels, they do not come under the Building Act.  Therefore you shouldn't need a building consent. Furthermore, the Department of Building and Housing regulations do not require a building consent if your building does not exceed one story and does not exceed 10 square metres in floor area, and does not contain cooking or sanitary facilities or a portable water supply. However, if you are unsure, please contact your local council for clarification.

Is a bond required?

Yes. The bond varies depending on the size cabin you choose however it is usually no more than $300. At the end of the hire when the cabin is returned in excellent condition your bond will be refunded.

Do you deliver the cabins?

Yes, we tow the cabins to you. We will set your cabin up level on your site. If you want your cabin shifted (e.g. if you’re moving house) we will do this for a small fee.

Can I tow or move the cabins?

We need to do that for you. If you need to move your cabin, please get in touch with us.

Is there a delivery fee?

Yes. Delivery includes placement and levelling of your cabin, as well as collection at the end of your lease. Delivery costs range from $150 to $350.

Do the wheels stay on?

Yes. We just remove the drawbar, so it does not get in your way and to optimise your available space.

Do they have curtains?

Yes. Almost all our cabins come with curtains, or they are available with curtains for a small additional price.

Do they have carpet?

Yes. You can also have your cabin without carpet if you prefer.

You could fit one or more office desks, filing cabinets or a single, double or queen-sized bed, chest of drawers, and other furniture. Choose from three cabin sizes.

Is there a minimum rental period?

Mostly there is, however each franchise can decide their minimum rental so please ask.

As long as you’ve completed your minimum rental period you only need to give one calendar months written notice to remove your cabin.
