Tiny House Delivery Options
The delivery options available to you will depend on the weight of your tiny house. Your tiny house will be weighed upon completion, and this will dictate the delivery options.
Option 1 Road legal Tiny Homes - DIY towing: If your tiny house is 3500kg or less (or can be stripped out to be 3,500kgs or less by transporting removable items in a separate vehicle), then you can tow your own tiny house. You will need a tow vehicle capable of towing 3,500kg, and you will need to be an experienced driver confident with towing large loads. You will require a class 2 licence if the combined GMV of the tiny house and your towing vehicle exceeds 6,000kg.
Option 2 Road legal Tiny Homes - Professional tow: If your tiny house is 3500kg or less (or can be stripped out to be 3500kgs or less by transporting removable items in a separate vehicle), and you don’t want to tow your own tiny house then you can contract almost any towing company to tow your tiny house for you.
We do have recommendations for companies that tow our tiny homes regularly, so reach out to us and we can organise a quote for you, or put you in touch directly.
Option 3 Overweight Tiny Homes - Truck haulage: If your tiny house exceeds 3,500kg, then you’ll need to transport your tiny house on the back of a truck. First your tiny house is jacked up off its trailer so that a ‘low-loader’ truck trailer can be backed in underneath. These ‘heavy trailers’ can easily take the additional weight. The tiny house is secured to the truck, and delivered to site. The tiny house trailer needs to be towed separately to the site ahead of the tiny house. Once the house arrives, the house is jacked back up, and lowered back down onto its own trailer again. Keep in mind, the a large area of level ground is required on, or very near the site for this unloading procedure.
This delivery method is preferable as it means that you don’t need to strip any removable items from your tiny house and reassemble them onsite – everything that can be secured can stay in the tiny house during transit. Keep in mind that this delivery method is more expensive, as a larger tow vehicle is required. Particularly with inter-island travel, as it's much more expensive to take larger trucks on the ferry.

Assisted Delivery Service: Your owners manual should give you all the information you need to set up your tiny house by yourself with the help of friends and family, but we also offer an assisted delivery service. So if any of this seems daunting, we’ll happily send a small team of experts to assist in the delivery and set up. We can also transport any removable items or the tiny house trailer depending on the delivery method selected above. Contact us with your delivery address and we can arrange a quote for you.
