Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE PAYMENT PROCESS?
A 10% deposit is required to secure an order and build slot. Following this, a further 50% deposit is payable 7 weeks before the production of the pod(s) begins. The final 40% is then to be paid and cleared prior to collection or delivery.
ARE YOUR PODS EASY TO INSTALL?
Our pods ideally require a concrete base; full instructions and drawings for preparation will be supplied. Arriving fully assembled, the pod is then wheeled into position on a rolling chassis - a suitable vehicle is required to do this. Said chassis can also be lowered if required. All that is then left to do is connect waste, water and electrical connections and it is ready for use.
HOW IS OUR POD DELIVERED?
Our pods are delivered on a standard caravan transporter and rolled off into position. Preferably we let the client arrange their own transport – however we can recommend some excellent haulage firms if required.
WHAT ABOUT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION?
All of our pods are fitted with an electrical consumer unit and are pre-tested, the standard connection is via a 16amp weather proof whiska box but this can be upped to 32amps on all electric units on our larger models.
DO YOUR PODS REQUIRE PLANNING PERMISSION?
Yes - Planning permission may be required for your glamping pod, we always recommend checking with your local authorities and discussing the project before proceeding. We have an excellent planning consultant and architect who can assist you in the process from start to finish.
CAN MIPOD ACT AS MAIN CONTRACTOR OR COULD WE USE OUR EXISTING CONTRACTORS FOR SITE WORK?
Yes – We can carry out all the necessary works in getting your site ready or we can provide detailed instructions for site preparation for existing contractors.
WHAT ABOUT FINANCING OPTIONS?
If you would like to explore financing or hire purchase options for your glamping pod, please let us know and we can put you in contact with our trusted consultants.
CAN YOUR PODS BE RELOCATED AFTER BEING SITED?

DO YOUR PODS HAVE WARRANTY?
