Frequently Asked Questions

What can I fit in the cabin?

RoomMate Cabins can fit up to a Queen size bed with a couple of pieces of furniture.

Have a look at our Interactive Floor Plan to get a better idea of what your cabin can hold.

What if there is no access to the site?

If we cannot get our trailer to the the site you want your cabin, we can arrange for a Hiab truck crane to lift the cabin into place. Naturally this does add to the cost of delivery, however if you are planning to use the property for a reasonable period of time, the extra transport cost gets spread out over time.

How do you deliver my cabin?

RoomMate cabins are delivered on a custom built tipping trailer. As long as we can get our trailer to your site, we can deliver your cabin.

An advantage of RoomMate Cabins is that they are built on skids attached to a steel base, not on wheels. While this eliminates the need for a big step to get into the cabin and provides a more stable platform, it also means the cabins are more maneuverable. [more]

Do we need a permit?

No. RoomMate Cabins are under 10sqm, are transportable and have no water connections, so they do not need a permit. They are subject to the usual height-to-boundary rules, but this shouldn’t restrict you from being able to get a cabin and your local operator will be able to advise you.

Is there a delivery fee?

Yes there is. The delivery fee includes bringing the cabin to your property, placing it on site, leveling it and removing it when no longer required. This is an all inclusive charge that differs for different parts of the country. Some operators occasionally have specials on their delivery fee as well, so go to the features and pricing section of the RoomMate Operator in the area you need extra room.

How do we connect to power?

RoomMate Cabins are built with an outdoor power socket connected to the cabin. We supply you with a lead that has a matching outdoor connection at one end and an RCD safety switch at the other. This RCD plugs into any ordinary 3 pin power socket in your house or garage.

Are the cabins insulated?

Absolutely! Cabins are insulated to a residential standard, with Batts in the walls and ceilings plus foil insulation underneath. They are much warmer than a caravan.
