Why are house relocations rising in popularity in New Zealand?

Recently, house relocations have risen in popularity among Kiwis. This may be because house relocations offer a flexible and practical solution for homeowners. It is also an affordable option in comparison to buying a newly built property.

House moving companies such as Uplifting Homes, can offer all-inclusive house relocations. Here at Uplifting Homes we buy and remove houses throughout the upper north island of New Zealand, completing reliable house relocations across Auckland. Uplifting Homes will arrange all transport permits, so you can relax knowing that we will take care of everything for you.

Transporting a home in New Zealand comes with various benefits. Firstly, it is cost-effective, preserves existing traditional structures and saves on the construction costs of building a new property.

From a sustainability perspective, house relocations maintain New Zealand heritage by preserving traditional structures instead of building new properties.

On top of this, house relocations save on the time of building new properties from scratch.

A rising desire for houses to be removed has been recorded in research data, with listings jumping over 90% in February last year in comparison to the year before. This is mainly down to second-hand homes being more affordable for Kiwis with the cost of building new homes almost doubling during the pandemic back in 2020.

When it comes to house relocation, this is the exciting part. Depending on the size and shape of your relocatable house, it may need to be transported in more than one piece. Once at the new property, it can be re-joined and then lowered onto its new foundations. Once your relocatable house has been lowered onto its foundations, you’ll be able to begin making any alterations.
