Portable Cabin Hire - Timaru and Oamaru

Are you worried about where to accommodate family members that are returning home, or perhaps you are expecting long term guests? If there is no room in the house, consider hiring a portable cabin from Just Cabins in Timaru. As single, portable rooms, made portable by being built on a trailer, our cabins can be quickly delivered to your home and immediately used as a sleepout or extra room.

Alternatively you may want to work from home, but do not have a spare room inside your home. A portable cabin can also be used as a portable office and as it is detached from the house, you can keep work entirely separate.

Our portable cabin range come in three sizes and because of their size and the fact that they are on wheels, no consents are required. We've made them comfortable to live in so have included features such as power, security lights, smoke alarm, security stays on the window, insulation, painted interior, with carpets, curtains and double glazing.

About Portable Cabins from Just Cabins

Single room, portable cabins are fast becoming a popular and economical option when extra rooms are required in both the residential and commercial sector. The cabins are factory built to meet all council building requirements, so there are no approvals or consents needed before they can be delivered.

The smallest cabin is 2.4 x 3.6m in size and the largest is 2.4 x 4.8m. Even the smallest size cabin can accommodate a queen size bed, or 2 single beds and a dresser. Or if you require office space, there's plenty of room for 2 desks and office furniture.

The cabins are on a permanent trailer base making delivery easy with a 4WD vehicle, and thus avoiding all the problems associated with truck transportation. All that's needed is a convenient site to locate them in, with access to a power source, and the cabins are ready to use.

About Timaru

Timaru is the second largest town in Canterbury and services the local agricultural community. Sited on the coast, it has a large port that is also important to the local economy. The town features a number of historic Victorian and Edwardian buildings, built from local bluestone.

Timaru is built around Caroline Bay and beach, which are popular recreational features of the area, with safe swimming, gardens, landscaped piazza and walks. During January there is a annual carnival in Caroline Bay that features live performances and shows.

The city's excellent museum has moa-hunter artefacts and all kinds of whaling relics; the art gallery holds a large public art collection.

About Oamaru

European settlement began in 1853 in Oamaru. The Harbour, during the late 19th Century, was vital for Oamaru and its farming hinterland. Grain and wool were housed in often-ornate warehouses built and carved from locally quarried Oamaru limestone. As the rural economy boomed, the Harbour area became a hub for prosperous businesses, banks, hotels and new industries. Today, many of the majestic Oamaru Whitestone buildings comprising the Harbour/Tyne Historic Precinct still stand. They are now home to a collection of curio shops, restaurants, gift stores, a Motoring Museum, a hotel, a fascinating book store, traditional craftsmen, the Oamaru Steam Train and Sunday markets.
