Essential tips for buying portable cabins

Organisations up and down the country of all shapes and sizes are realising the many benefits that come from investing in a portable cabin – and the reasons for doing so can be extremely varied.

Indeed portable cabins can provide short, medium or longer term options for businesses from all sectors in order to aid business growth – from the education and healthcare sectors to the construction and events industries.

However because there are so many options, and because portable cabins can serve so many purposes, it is worth considering a few key points before proceeding to ensure you get maximum value.

That way, you can be sure that you’re getting a portable cabin that isn’t generic or standard… it’s exactly what you and your business needs, when you need it.

Here are five tips for buying portable cabins that can help stand your business in good stead:


1) What’s the primary purpose?

It sounds like an obvious one but with the myriad of portable cabin options available, identifying the exact purpose for installing a portable cabin ensures you get the exact option that is best suited to cater for your needs and requirements. Speaking with experienced building services personnel can help ensure there is synergy between the purpose and the product.


2) Who do you want to work with?

What you need from a portable cabin investment may well influence which professional provider you work with. While it may be possible to get a cabin relatively easily, if you’re looking for a more comprehensive service – from groundworks, installation, final connections to handing over of the keys – then a professional building services provider that can offer a turnkey solution may be the best option for you.


3) Your unique requirements

What are your visions and values? How do you want to be perceived as an organisation? Are there any unique aspects of your business that need to be taken into consideration? Helping a portable cabin provider know key information can help you get the portable cabin perfect for you. For example, is Corporate Social Responsibility and environmental welfare at the heart of what you do? If so, an energy-efficient and aesthetically sympathetic option may be best for you.


4) New or refurbished?

There are a range of portable cabin options available and the decision on whether you invest in a brand new building or a refurbished one is definitely important. Sometimes a new building can make a real statement to staff, stakeholders and customers. However at times, a second-hand option can be just as effective and potentially more cost effective. A trusted, experienced building services company can assist in helping you make the right call.


5) Size

You probably have an idea in your head how big or small you need your portable cabin to be but with so many size options, having a specific idea of what you’re going to need can help make sure you’re getting a portable cabin that is both practical and cost effective – so that you can enjoy maximum value.
