Frenquently Asked Questions
Do you offer rent to buy?
At present we can only direct you to a finance company and you can pay it off through them
Go to the finance page in the menu and click on the Gilrose logo, this will open up to an application form
What areas of the country do you transport the cabin?
We can transport them to anywhere in the upper North Island, however beyond 3 hours drive from South Auckland, the cost of transport can get quite expensive, because the transporter charges for the return to depot as well. What some of our customers have done is organised a local transport company and asked if they have a return load from Auckland they need so you are effectively only paying one way
What if I have a difficult to access site?
If youre not too far from south Auckland, I can view your site to assess the access to see if our transporter can deliver the cabin. In some circumstances we can build on site.
