DEVELOPER, INVESTOR OR LANDLORD
Looking to provide quality accommodation and see a healthy ROI.
Whatever your needs and plans, we have most of the real-world options for a comfortable, economical lifestyle - permanent or temporary, full-time home, or stylish retreat - but first things first:
Despite our distinguished heritage, MAC Container Homes are NOT shipping containers.
They're not even converted shipping containers. Let's get that straight, right from the off. However, like every MAC secure storage unit, temporary site accommodation, education, health and modular business system, our container homes are built to the same engineering standards as the MAC shipping containers that cross the seven seas, carrying megatons of precious international cargo, decade after decade.
At a fraction of the cost of bricks & mortar, MAC Container Homes meet real-life needs, wants and expectations
- Purpose-Built to Order
- As individually unique as you like
- And uniquely affordable into the bargain
Think around £25,000 - £45,000 all-in, for a permanent home with Building Regulations approval... relaxed Planning process... a home to be proud of - with a proven resale value.
Now think £234,000 to £368,000
These figures were compiled by Checkatrade - one of the UK's most trusted sources.
Average cost of building a traditional 2 bedroom house
Average cost of building a traditional 3 bedroom house
Average cost of building a traditional 4 bedroom house
Frightening eh? That's AFTER you've paid handsomely for the site... BEFORE you've forked out on all those professional, legal or local government fees.
(Considering what building a bricks & mortar house actually entails... Survey... Site Preparation... Foundation... Substructure... Floor slab - and that's before a single brick has been laid above ground - these apparently absurd sums begin to add up, don't they?)
Suddenly, a MAC home seems even more desirable. Especially if you hope to move in any time soon... Traditional builds... bricks, blocks, timber frame... take about a year before they're all done and dusted. A MAC home takes a matter of weeks.
Singles Pad to Mature Luxury
What size will your MAC home be?
You tell us: anything from 20' x 8' studio flat (temporary accommodation for nearly grown-up children) to 48' x 12' three bedroom/two bathroom (same as a good-sized bungalow) luxury See the full range. Create a multi-story complex. Cut loose. Set your creativity free.
Ready to live in
Delivered, installed, ready for connection to services. Convector heating. Better insulation than most 'bricks & mortar' homes. Fully-fitted kitchen and bathroom... just add your personal touches.
We made our name producing impregnable containers. We know how to make a MAC home more thief-proof than almost any traditional home. 40+ Years. Zero break-ins.
A MAC Home is built to last a lifetime: - a long one. How long?... well put it this way: your MAC home will probably outlive all of us.
Two Levels of Luxury
(1) is what we call MAC Standard: Often the first choice of Local Authorities, Landlords and other Investors, Housing Associations and Affordable Housing Schemes, a MAC Standard home provides all the security, comfort, convenience and economy that anyone could wish for. Size for size, it offers unbeatable value for money.
(2) is MAC Superior: See those fittings? Check that finish? Pure luxury. Just ask yourself how much that would cost in a traditional bricks & mortar home.
As you can see, a MAC Home is pretty cool into the bargain
