FAQs About Our Portable Buildings
Q. What are some of the things that make a Ridge Portable Solutions structure different or better?
A. We’ve been involved in the design, manufacture and installation of portable or relocatable homes, offices and buildings for years and have learned some valuable lessons along the way by listening to our customers.
This is why we use steel welded framing and quality fittings, and provide a tailor made service where we can be involved as much or as little as you want.
Of course, other benefits are:
- Every Ridge Portable Solutions structure includes our exclusive “Delivered In Perfect Condition” guarantee, a “10-Year Guarantee on the Structure” and is also guaranteed for 25 years against rotting.
- Buying a granny flat is also a fraction of the cost of buying a traditional unit or home, which eliminates the need to overextend yourself on a larger home loan, and…
- Portable buildings are easier to maintain, with less outgoings, unlike traditional units that may have body corporate fees or the outgoing expenses of a home or investment property.
Q. How much can I make renting out a granny flat?
A. There’s no easy answer for this one, as how much rent you can ask for will depend on variable such as where your granny flat is located. Is it located on a big block at an inner Melbourne suburb or out in regional Australia? Is it close to shopping centres and public transport or not? So, as you can understand, we can’t give you an exact number of how much rent you can ask for, as we do not know your specific circumstances.
Q. How portable are they?
A. You’d be surprised! Our range is quite easy to move, which is another reason why we use steel framing. The steel frame prevents them from being twisted in transport and warping when constructed.
Q. Will I sleep easy and safe in wild weather?
A. Well, we can’t predict Mother Nature’s fury, but what we can say is this: Every portable building or granny flat we make is made to withstand some pretty tough weather conditions. This is why we build them to cyclone ratings, use tough steel framing, give you a 10-year guarantee on the structure, and weld the frames together instead of using pop rivets.
Q. Can you supply more than one?
A. YES. Over the years we’ve supplied developers, event companies, wineries and holiday parks, the resource sectors in mining and so on, and many other businesses with portable accommodation housing, onsite offices and more.
