How long does a SmartShelter roof cover last?2024-03-04T16:41:14+13:00

What is your timeframe from order to completion?2024-03-04T16:41:35+13:00

This varies greatly depending on the size of the shelter you ordered. A smaller structure can be dispatched in a couple of days, whereas larger structures may take 4-6 weeks to be fabricated.

What site preparation is required?2024-03-04T16:41:58+13:00

We like to keep things as easy as possible. For our container-mounted shelters, all you need to do is ensure that your site is level and compacted. To hold the containers in place, you can use either ballast in the containers or concrete footings, or a combination of the two methods – whichever works best for you.

For pole-mounted shelters, the site requirements are also very straightforward. A clear, level site is usually all that we need, along with information about ground conditions.

Our sales consultants are always happy to talk through your specific situation, so don’t hesitate to call us if you would like to discuss things in more detail.
