Your Questions Answered

Please find below a list of the questions we are frequently asked:

What power supply do I need?

All of our units, with the exception of the Junior Diner, come with a 240v 32amp Ceeform 2P+E Plug.

The Junior Diner has a 240V 63A Ceeform 2P+E Blue Plug.

Will they run off a generator?

Yes, all of our units can run off a generator.

Do we need planning permission?

Yes, cabins sited for more than 28 days may require planning permission. However, they are a portable structure and we advise that you speak to your local planning office before placing your order. It is the hirer’s responsibility to organise any planning permission required.

What is the drainage connection?

For more information see the ‘Technical Details’ on the main product page of each unit type - through 'Our Cabins'.

The following units all have a 110mm waste outlet at the rear of the unit

Junior Sleeper, Deluxe Sleeper, Bespoke Sleeper, Toilet Block, Deluxe Shower & Toilet

The remainder all have a 40mm waste outlet at the rear of the unit

Junior Diner, Twin Shower

The waste outlets can be connected to a push fit type connection and fed into either the sewage main drains or our ‘waste tanks’.

We can supply 900 gallon waste tanks with your order however, you will need to have this emptied by a local contractor. We will help you find a reputable local contractor. Click here to see our optional extras.

Can Bunkabin’s run off a water bowser?

Yes, the best solution is to have a water bowser fitted with an on-demand pump. The water pressure that you get to the unit ultimately determines how powerful your shower is.

How many waste tanks do we need?

Three sleeper units can be connected to a 900 gallon tank. On average usage and with twin occopancy this would need to be emptied weekly.

Do we need steps?

No, unless you are using 900 gallon waste tanks the units needs to be raised to ensure you get adequate fall into the tank. To achieve this, all the units need to be raised and steps will be required.

We can supply steps with all our units to make everything easier for you. Though if you choose, you are welcome to use / biuild your own.

Can they double stack?

Physically they can be double stacked, however building regulations require a 6m gap between double-stacked units and adjacent buildings. This means no space is saved by double stacking.

Many other issues restrict double stacking, but this is the main one.

Are the Sleeper units available as a 1, 2 or 3 person unit?

Our Junior Deluxe Sleeper is available as a 1, 2 or 3 person unit - Single, Twin, Triple.

The Deluxe Sleeper is available as a 1 or 2 person unit - Single, Twin.

The Bespoke is a single occupancy unit

Sorry but none of our Sleepers are available or adaptable to accommodate a double bed. However, our single beds are very comforatable.

What is the largest sleeper you make and hire?

The largest single unit we manufacture and hire is a one-man Bespoke Sleeper; the 2.870m x 4.325m just edges the one-man Deluxe Sleeper by millimeters. Both units include en-suite bathroom (shower, toilet, sink), full size single bed, microwave, fridge desk and a chest of drawers, and yet it still feels extremely spacious .

Just so you know, the largest twin unit is a Twin Deluxe Sleeper. This is the same size as the single Deluxe and we simply remove the desk and a chest of drawers and replace it with a bed.

Can the delivery vehicle run on grass?

Under no circumstances whatsoever should a wagon drive over grass, Murphy’s Law says that if the ground is hard during delivery it will be a muddy bog when the unit needs to be collected. Any wasted journeys will be charged at full rate.

Do you deliver anywhere in the UK?

Yes we deliver nationwide. Please call for a delivery cost. 0345 456 7899

Are they available for sale?

We are solely a hire company. We manufacture all of our units at our purpose-built factory. When the units come to the end of their life we recycle them.

How much notice for delivery?

This depends on the time of year. During the festival season we are very busy however we can always deliver with a week's notice. However, we will always try and do better than a week.

Please note this is subject to availability of stock; in the festival season we regularly run out of units.

How often do the tanks need emptying?

This is always a difficult question. It depends how often the unit is used, however if you have three units into one tank it will need to be emptied once a week.

We don’t empty the tanks however we can put you onto a number of nationwide, reputable companies.

Is insurance included in the hire rate?

No. As part of our standard terms and conditions it is the hirer’s responsibility to arrange insurance at 200 x the weekly hire rate.

What is the minimum hire period?

You can have the unit for one day if you wish, however we have a minimum charge which would cover a four week hire. This charge covers the cost of cleaning and testing the unit ready for hire.

Will I get charged for cleaning?

Our fundamental principle is to 'treat customers how we would want to be treated'. The hire industry is quickly gaining a reputation for dishing out petty end-of-hire cleaning\damage charges. Often these charges are routinely generated to make up for unsustainably low hire rates. We are different. We don't expect the unit to come back spotless and understand there will be some wear and tear. We will charge for damage but I'm sure you'll agree that is only fair.

Are mattresses included?

Mattresses are included. We also sell bedding kits, which includes a duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillow case, bed sheet and a bath towel.
