The project background:
The client, Datuk R., is the local land owner in Kota Kinabula, Sabah Malaysia, who wants to utilize his empty land for a long time. Before he came to us, he was thinking to develop a home stay program to have monthly income for his retirement scheme with his wife. He has limited budget. At the beginning he was thinking of the building system of flat pack container, shipping modular containers, and he made design drawings, plans and layouts and finally he had decided to come to China to inspect the factory and the container house products.
During his visit to China, he was very happy to see the quality of the RAD supplied container houses at the project site. But when our sales manager Mrs. Evana introduced him the new series of light touch building. He completely fell in love with the MoonBox and Loft Hotel, plus he is also happy with the interior design, architectural design and the FOB price as well. He realized he not only can develop this home stay program project into a higher level Airbnb style project, but also he realized that he can make a business as a reseller for this type of houses locally.
Since our light touch building, 98% of the components are pre-made in our factory and the house is like a standard product, which can be scalable sales easily as long as you have the clients who are interested to build a house.
After 1 month of discussion of land size, land situation, suitable models, operation themes, finally Datuk R. has confirmed to order the 1st model of his project. Moonbox - the ideal suite for honeymooners.
During the production time and preparation of shipment, Datuk R. had some worry about house packaging and the inconvenience of the cargo loading and uploading.
Our usual packaging is standard export wooden pallet packaging without fumigation requirement at port of loading nor at port of discharge.
During the preparation process, we keep sending manufacturing pictures and videos to him and discuss and exhort the best way of packing so that only 4 men can carry everything out from the container without any machinery assistance at site nor during off loading the container.
During the installation process, Datuk R. has been so supportive to make everything well facilitated at site. He arranged one of his staff who can speak local Malaysian language and Chinese to communicate and assist at site to make sure our sent technician can supervise properly and deliver the key messages to the inexperienced site workers.
Thanks to the cooperation of local installation team, the first Moonbox in Malaysia has been successfully accomplished and installed. This is the little daughter of Datuk R. and they spent wonderful time there.
And right after 1 month, second order from Datuk R. had come. A wood whisper is now building right next to MoonBox.
Now they are still in the process of Airbnb planning and marketing stages.
