Freight and Logistics
What you will need to do
Manufactured by our partner company in China, Freight to New Zealand and internal delivery from our MPI certified warehouse is managed by 4D Freight (see link below) in association with CEDRA International.
Once you order your home and pay your deposit we lodge the order with the manufacturer. During manufacture in our ISO9000 factory, each stage is inspected independently by SGS International to ensure compliance with construction quality.
Once your unit arrives in New Zealand it is de-vanned at our base in Canterbury, fully assembled and then taken to your site anywhere in New Zealand.
We will arrange delivery to your site using the competitive rates of 4D Freight, our logistics partners. You will be responsible for site preparation and foundations.
For foundations we recommend wooden or concrete piles as these are easy to install and most foundation configurations can be installed in a few days. Nevertheless our homes are just as easily installed on a concrete raft - it gets down to your personal preference and maybe geotech demands.
We will supply detailed drawings and information for Local Authority consents and we have a specialist team who can help you should you have problems.
While the properties are ready for assembly you will need to engage an electrician and a plumber/drainlayer to ensure appropriate connection to mains power and waste disposal. The electrical fittings can be installed behind a clip-on skirting board this ensuring no damage is done to wall linings or insulation when running cables.
