This does depend on where you are located and the difficulty of the install. If access is not a problem, and you have a prepared surface (see below), then installation should be in the $1,000 – $2,000 range. Sometimes it can be less, sometimes more. You can contact us to find out what it would cost you.
This can vary depending on your circumstances and fire model. A concrete pad is fine, we recommend the pad meets our manufacturer’s specs, some models can be installed onto good ground. You can request the manufacturer’s specs for the footing from us.

It depends where you are located. There are times when a building consent is needed, and/or sometimes a resource consent. It is best to check with your local council. Tell them you are building an ‘outdoor concrete barbie’.

Yes this is a very common occurrence. Because of the modular design the maximum weight of any one piece is 1,100kg, so an average crane or large Hiab can lift the modules 20-40 metres into your property. Your next question will be but isn’t that really expensive? Cranes vary in price from $150 – $300+ per hour but installation should take 3 hours (maximum) depending on the fireplace model. So at the end of the day it is often the most cost effective and simplest way to go.
