ROOMMATE CABINS Wellington

About RoomMate Cabins Wellington

Our district encompasses the Wellington Region including all suburbs within the Hutt Valley, Wellington, Porirua, and the Kapiti Coast including Levin (up to the Manawatu River north of Levin).

We respond to requests promptly with information about costs and estimated delivery times and, if needed, we do a site visit to check access and placement.

Cabins are delivered on a purpose-built trailer that tips allowing the cabin to roll onto the ground. Once off the trailor the cabin can be rolled into position on pipes.  Sometimes we use a hiab to lift a cabin into place.

Our cabins are:

  • Made of sustainable natural materials – with a shadow-clad timber exterior, timber framing and plywood interior (no crying walls!).
  • Stable and easy to access – cabins sit on a steel frame (not wheels or caravan jacks) and are very close to the ground. No big step-up is needed to get in and out. Movement caused by wind and footfall is almost non-existent.
  • Fully insulated – with Batts in the walls and ceiling cavity as well as under floor insulation.  It takes very little to warm our cabins on winter days.
  • WINZ approved – RoomMate Cabins is a WINZ approved accommodation provider.
  • Electrically certified – electrical certifications are renewed every 4 years by a qualified electrician.  Cabins come with a 15 metre cord which connect to a standard house plug. The cabin comes with power points and lights.
  • Built to the Building Code
  • Insurance compliant – our cabins are insurance compliant.

*We do NOT use refrigeration paneling (Insulated Sandwich Paneling or ISP) because they ‘cry’ in cold and damp winter conditions leading to mildew.

*We also do not use monolithic cladding because it makes cabins prone to leaking.

*Most insurance companies won’t insure ISP or monolithic cabins for these reasons.

Get in touch as soon as you think you might need a cabin and we will do our utmost to deliver within your time frame. We offer an Easy Pay option for people who may be unable to pay the full cost payable on delivery. Call us and we will be happy to discuss.

Areas we cover:

Wellington City, Johnsonville, Tawa, Porirua, Titahi Bay, Whitby, Paekakariki, Paraparaumu, Waikanae,  Lower Hutt, Wainuiomata, Upper Hutt
