Transportable Homes vs. Relocatable Homes: What's the Difference?

Over the years, home construction technology has evolved significantly. Today, there are different types of houses like the traditional brick and mortar homes, prefab or modular homes, transportable homes, relocatable homes and more. But, how are these homes different from each other? Let us understand the difference between transportable and relocatable homes.

 

What is a transportable home?

 

Transportable homes are generally newly-constructed houses that are built in a factory using modular technology. After the construction is complete, it is transported to the actual site where it is installed on a flat surface or pre-made ground by the expert fabricators.

 

Today, many people prefer building modular transportable homes as they offer many advantages over traditional RCC structures. These homes are highly durable, the construction is done about 2-3 times faster than the conventional building methods, and more importantly, they provide a safe living space that is fireproof and has the capacity to resist harsh weather conditions.

 

One of the leading companies in India that provide modular home construction services is Nest-In, from the house of Tata Steel. They provide a wide range of modular home solutions and one of the most popular solutions is MobiNest. It is a steel-based portable cabin that makes living highly mobile and easy to install.

 

These cabins are highly customisable, you can build a home of various sizes, layouts and colour options as per your need. Also, since MobiNest cabins are made of high-quality steel, they offer great durability and require zero maintenance.

 

What are relocatable homes?

 

The relocatable homes are similar to transportable homes, which are essentially made using modular construction technology. However, a significant difference between the two is that the relocatable homes are generally older homes that are being moved or relocated from its original site to a different location.

 

The biggest benefit of a relocatable home is its portability. This is an excellent choice of homes for people who don’t like to stay in one location for long or are in a profession that requires them to travel to different cities.

 

If you have a relocatable home, you can move your entire home to the place where you are going. The entire home can be lifted, moved in a truck, and once again installed at the location of your choice.

 

You can save yourself from the hassles of looking for a new house, moving your household items, packing and unpacking, getting accustomed to the new home, etc.

 

Thus, there is no major difference between transportable and relocatable homes but they have unique advantages that you can never get from a traditional home. These homes are an ideal solution for the modern day housing needs.
