A Simplified Process
The SmartBox 'Modular Building' team is with you every step of the way. We simplify the building process. We're with you from consultation to move in day. Our process varies depending on the state you've chosen to install your modular building.

Hidden
Step 1 - Feasibility Consultation

A "feasibility assessment" is the first step in determining whether a USA Smart Box 'Modular Building' is right for you and your property.

Option 1: No Site Visit

We suggest a 'No Site Visit' feasibility assessment when there are no issues to having a flatbed truck (up to 72ft in length) and a crane accessing within 30ft of your desired building location.

This assessment includes:

  • Phone consultation with our inside sales team
  • Zoning verification
  • Upgrade option pricing
  • Budgetary estimate for the USA Smart Box modular building, shipping, crane work and on-site installation
  • Design proposal for moving forward with Step 2
  • Cost is determined on design

Option 2: Site Visit

If you are uncertain with the accessibility in regards to a flatbed truck (up to 72ft in length) and crane accessing within 30ft of the desired building location, we suggest going with a Site Visit - Feasibility Assessment.

This assessment includes:

  • Phone consultation
  • Site visit by USA Smart Box to determine overhead crane clearance and truck accessibility
  • Review building location, orientation, foundation options and site-specific requirements
  • Zoning verification
  • Upgrade option pricing
  • Budgetary estimate
  • Design proposal for moving forward with Step 2
  • Cost is unique per project and location
Step 2 - Design and Engineering

When the design proposal is signed (within Step 1), USA Smart Box will provide you with the following:

Schematic Design

  • 3D visual of your modular building where revisions can be made and design approved before moving forward to the drawings

DP Set of Drawings

  • Site plan, floor-plans, elevations, sections and initial foundation design.
  • First draft of architectural set of drawings. Some jurisdictions allow this set as the Development Permit approval (planning) 
  • Engineering (some or all of these scopes may be needed depending on the jurisdiction)
  • Structural foundation design
  • USA Smart Box over stamp
  • Energy calculations
  • Civil engineering
  • Septic design
  • Soil report
  • State approval of USA Smart Box plans
Step 3 - 5% Reservation Deposit *Optional*
  • A 5% deposit on the price of your USA Smart Box 'Modular Building' is be held as a production spot and pricing for 6 months from time of payment. This deposit is refundable in the event you decide to discontinue the process, however, a 10% fee will be deducted IF your permits are denied. Your remaining construction deposit will be due 75 days from the production start date.
Step 4: Permit Submittals

When all architectural, engineering and certification documentation is complete, all drawings and accompanying documents are compiled and submitted for Building Permits.

Step 5: 40% Construction Down Payment

The 40% Manufacturing Down Payment is due 75 days prior to manufacturing start date.

Step 6: Production and 35% Progress Payment – Site Work Begins
  • We will provide updates and pictures of your USA Smart Box 'Modular Building' at key stages of construction.
  • Your local contractor begins site preparation and foundation work.
  • The 35% manufacturing progress payment is due upon completion of the structural frame and prior to the start of:
    Module completion
    Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing  'rough-in'
    Insulation
    Drywall
    Paint and interior
Step 7: Completion of your USA Smart BoxModular Building and 25% payment
  • Upon completion of your USA Smart Box 'Modular Building' in the factory, the final 25% of the unit is due.
  • 10% of this payment is held in a separate bank account and will be released upon the walk through sign off by the customer after installation onsite, less any deficiencies identified.
Step 8: 100% Shipping, Crane and Installation Payment
  • 30 days prior to the scheduled shipping date, we re-quote and provide you with the updated pricing for shipping, crane and installation.
  • Payment is due 15 days prior to the scheduled shipping date
Step 9: Delivery and Onsite Installation
  • When we confirm the site is ready to receive your Container Home Living 'Modular Building', we'll book the crane, trucks and send the Container Home Living team to your site.
  • The USA Smart Boxinstallation team will coordinate with the crane operator to land the individual modules onto the foundation once on site. Completing the modular building may take approximately 7 days, depending on the USA Smart Box model and scope of work.
  • Site utilities are connected after the buildings are in place and welded to the foundation.
  • Final walk through and keys given presented to you!
