The onsite shift strategy is possibly the greatest strategy to ever exist in the property development world and we want you to know about it. It can massively increase your chances of creating success through property.

At the Relocatable House Co we want to help you achieve your dreams and aspirations through property and we believe that completing an onsite shift project can massively increase your net wealth.

We know many people are considering relocating their existing house on their site to create an extra section or two, but they don’t know where to start, or what to consider.

At The Relocatable House Co. we believe there shouldn’t be a housing crisis. We just need to educate more people on how to take control of their own destiny. There are plenty of preloved homes that we can source for you to put on your site, so you can be part of the housing solution rather than the problem.

Completing an onsite shift, when done correctly, can be a cheap and effective way to create extra value in your land.

Here are some simple questions you must consider when contemplating an on-site shift strategy:

  • Can I move my house?
  • How am I best to move it? (Is a crane or a truck required?)
‘We want to help you achieve your dreams and aspirations through property and we believe that completing an onsite shift project can massively increase your net wealth’
  • Does my house need to be cut to be removed?
  • Do I need a building consent?
  • Do I need a resource consent?
  • Do I need to disconnect the services?
  • Is there asbestos on my site?
  • How many sections can I create?
  • What will it cost to clean up the building rubble/debris once the house is removed?
  • Do you have concrete chimneys, decks etc. Can these be reinstated?
  • Can one company manage the whole process, or does it require many different companies/contactors?
  • What is the process that must be followed?
  • Will the house require renovation after it has been moved?
  • What are the difficulties/challenges with my site?
  • How long will the process take?
  • What are the health and safety implications to consider?
  • How much will it cost me?
  • To prepare the building consent and pay the council building impact fees?
  • Development or Building impact fees?
  • To move my house back or forward?
  • To reconnect the services?
  • To get final side off? • What are the risks?
  • Is my site contaminated?
  • What is the soil structure?
  • What are the boundary setbacks?
  • Can my house be shifted? Will it get damaged in the process?
  • What must I know before I start?
  • Can it be done?
  • What will it cost?
  • Will I get a building consent approved?
  • Can I get finance?
  • What is the process?

This list of questions may seem long, but we are here to help guide you through the process!
