Our clients have their say...

Elevate transportable houses have been delivered throughout the North Island of New Zealand, from Wellington to Northland, and have become the permanent and part-time homes of many satisfied, house proud clients. 

The following client testimonials provide a look into what people see as the benefits of off-site house construction over an on-site build and what makes an Elevate relocatable home the smart choice.

"From start to finish the building process was straight forward and stress free. Everyone who works at Elevate are passionate about their product and were genuinely lovely people to deal with. They say what they are going to do and do it! We live 4 hours away from Cambridge however we were kept regularly updated with photos and emails. We were able to just get on with life and leave our build in Elevates' capable hands. It was an incredibly enjoyable process."

"The building process and dealing with the Elevate Homes team was wonderful. We have loved the whole process. It was actually a shame when it came to an end. We would certainly recommend them - and we do - as often people (strangers) call in to talk about our new house and we show them around it. We have absolutely no complaints about anything."

"Excited to hear that my new house has left Cambridge on route for Lyall Bay (yep big trip)!! Fully finished, right down to TVs, sound system, wardrobes, kitchen etc. just need to plug it in, stock the fridge and beer fridge, hit the sound system button, stoke the fire and job done! Ready to live in within half a day of it arriving!!! The home is beyond awesome thanks to Lee Turner and the Elevate team. I can't explain how much fun and how easy this process has been with Lee, especially as I changed soo much, soo many times!! Class act and product. Thanks again Lee and team.”

"The reason we chose an Elevate Home was due to Lee's enthusiasm and passion to produce a high-end quality and cost effective architectural transportable. We wanted to have certainty on build cost and felt that the transportable would give us a lot more certainty around the price compared to building on site. Nothing was a problem. Quality control is on site with Lee and the team. Building consents, engineers, interior design - it was all done for us - the build was an absolute breeze."

"I found the building process rewarding and inspiring, easy, relaxed and not stress fueled as my other on-site building experiences have been. Each member of the team goes to great lengths to see the clients’ ideas through to bearing practical fruit. They are well researched and in touch with developing trends yet respectful of one’s budget and thus I never felt hijacked by big spending ‘architects’ syndrome’ i.e. their genius yet your pocket!"

"We have had so many people come and knock on our door asking about our house, they can’t believe it’s a transportable home, on average we have had one person a day walk in over the summer and talk to us about the house and have shown a few people through it as well. The house has been the talk of Whangamata and we have had such positive feedback, everyone just loves it."

We knew we wanted to build, but as fitness professionals, small business owners and parents of two kids under 5, the process and the cost was frightening. We had no idea where to start.

Kristin and Lee and their Elevate team are honestly like Fairy Godmothers, we told them what we wanted and they made it happen. Despite us being in another region with an inability to travel to Cambridge often and with very minimal knowledge of the building and design industry, their patience and exceptional communication made it all happen.....in 20 weeks!

Even when we didn't know what we wanted, their advice and ability to keep us within our budget took all of the stress, usually involved with a house build, away.

Since our beautiful home arrived in Mangawhai six months ago we have had nothing but positive comments about the style, quality and functionality of our home. It's chic and very easy to live and entertain in.

Elevate homes are unique, stylish, functional and whether all opened up for the indoor, outdoor entertaining or all lit up at night, they look so cool.

Thank you Elevate, for making our family home dreams a reality.
