Who might use portable buildings?
Portable units are the ideal solution for when more space is needed and land is available, but where more static buildings are not readily available. Examples where portable units are ideal are schools where more classroom space is needed, building sites where offices and welfare facilities are needed, and offices which are crowded but have grounds where portable offices can be placed. Also at festivals and events sites, portable units can be ideal for offices and showrooms. New housing estates usually use a portable building as a site office.
Why use portable units instead of static buildings?
Portable units can be installed almost instantly and cost significantly less than static structures. Portable units may be allowed when planning permission for static buildings is refused. But cost is often the main factor. Portable units can be put in quickly and at relatively low cost, and are ideal for extra office or classroom space where static buildings aren’t a viable option.

And it is best to buy from a reputable company which has portable buildings for sale, rather than buying in a private deal where there is no way of telling the building’s history or possible defects. Buying used or new from a company will give you some history and warranty and someone to contact if something goes wrong. Buying from a company also gives you a selection of portable buildings for sale to choose from and decide what is most suitable for your needs.
