What is the 4S Rule?

Steady Supply:

Containers & Modular Containerised Units are a low cost effective and widely available building block for modern construction projects. They are standardised worldwide allowing for easy transportation, are inherently strong and, and are available to our build team within hours of a design being finalised for production.

Strength:

Shipping containers and our modular builds are designed to withstand the rough seas where they spend the majority of their life, intermittent forklift, crane, and truck handling. This inherent strength allows them to become the perfect structural tool at short notice for long-term and short-term application. If we don’t use containers we use a container frame and use steel walls to reinforce the sides. This gives more of a modular build.

Sustainability:

Both our modular, container solutions are built in a factory environment, minimising material waste and environmental impact on the final site and its surroundings. We build to order, so have no wastage of valuable materials, and we use environmentally sustainable wood and recycled wood composites wherever possible.

Speed:

Working in a controlled environment allows us to not be at the mercy of the weather and other conditions that hinder working deadlines and site conditions. We build 6 days a week, every week, throughout the year, rain, hail or shine.

What is the purchase and build process?

We aim for a maximum of 10 weeks from confirmation of design to delivery. During this process, you pay a series of structured payments and receive regular photo updates (bi-weekly) directly from the factory, so you can see your order throughout the production process.

The final payment is due following your inspection of the unit, and then your ModnPods solution is ready for immediate delivery.

We have plenty of clients overseas that don’t see the product until it arrives in this case we do a live video feed of the entire unit.

Do you offer finance?

We offer an in-house finance solution for certain projects. Please contact us directly to discuss the options available to you. Leasing, Hire purchase and delayed payment options are also available, just contact us to learn more.
