Frequently Asked Questions

What is a demountable home?

The definition of a demountable home or transportable homes darwin covers any dwelling unit designed and built to be transported in prefabricated sections from one position to another. It is not permanently attached to a site except for the supply of essential services.

Are demountable homes good for the environment?

Demountable homes are much better for the environment than a traditional properties for a number of reasons. They have a much lower carbon footprint due to the type of construction used to fabricate the buildings. They are also designed with efficiency in mind, so energy usage is lower (which also saves on energy bills!) and temperature is more easily controlled. Moreover, the materials used in the construction of demountable homes are more sustainable than traditional housing.

How big can my demountable home be?

The beauty of a demountable home is that you have the option to extend it as much as you’d like to. There’s no upper limit to the size of a demountable home – if you’d like to add another bedroom in a few years then you can do that with no issues. There aren’t any regulations regarding maximum sizes for demountable homes.

How easy is it to move a demountable home?

One of the biggest selling points of a demountable home is that you can move it to another location. Whether you’re moving for work or just fancy a chance of scenery, a demountable home gives you the power to move with your property.

The process of moving a demountable home is quite straightforward, although it does require a professional property mover. The process itself isn’t too involved and you don’t have to pack up your belongings for the move. All that’s required is the disconnection of service lines before loading the home up and moving to the next destination.

What do i need to be aware of before building a demountable home?

Development approval from state and local (council) government. You can find all the information you need on the development application process at the Northern Territory Government’s Land Planning and Development website.

Are transportable homes cheaper?

Demountable homes are much cheaper than traditional varieties for a range of reasons. Because they are prefabricated, less labour is required, and all components can be ordered wholesale to drive down expenses. There is also a reduction in costs because of the reduced use of connections and joiners. These savings continue after the installation because you can power your demountable building using solar solutions or 12V power.

What is the difference between a prefabricated or modular home to a demountable one?

The key difference is that a demountable home can be transported to a different location. They are not attached to the land, so should a homeowner want to stay in the same place, but change their home, it’s easy for them to sell the demountable one and install an upgraded version. Likewise, if the homeowner wants to move place but not property, a demountable home means this is possible.


A prefabricated or modular home is built in a similar way in that it’s made and constructed in a factory, but this type of building is not designed to be transportable.

How long do demountable homes last?

With good care and a sound maintenance programme, demountable homes should last at least 50 years. Regular painting and keeping on top of any minor works means you’ll be able to enjoy maximum benefit from your demountable home. The materials used in building this type of home means they’re especially durable.

What type of material is used for demountable homes?

Modern demountable homes use modern materials. At Demountable Sales and Hire, we choose termite resistant frames, light weight, durable panel materials and sound steel structures. Each of our buildings is designed to withstand the rigours of the NT climate, including being resistant to cyclones as well as high temperatures.
