A portable building is a demountable, portable, and transportable structure made intending to be mobile, not permanently fixed to one location. Also known as prefabricated buildings, portable buildings are manufactured / assembled off-site. After weve agreed a hire / rental period or your purchase, the building is collected from our depot and HIAB Transport delivered to your premises, factory or construction site etc and offloaded by a crane which is attached to the delivery lorry.

1.      They are Flexible

Relocatable Portable Buildings are designed to be flexible, which means that the options for usage are vast. You can opt to use the portable building as an office, classroom, storage unit, or other endless possibilities. You can even use them for living, just like standard structures. To achieve this, you will have to add air conditioning and insulation to ensure that the internal temperatures are optimal for living or working.

ContainerKing® / rent-a-unit are also manufacturers of portable buildings and can even customize the prefabricated portable building to suit your needs. With the use of newer technologies, you can virtually order the company to create a building with your unique design, and our engineers will deliver your exact order intact.

2.      They are Cost-Effective

Another huge advantage of a relocatable portable building is that they are cost-effective. You don’t have to stress buying construction materials or funding a construction site, a foreman and construction workers. Our factory does all that for you.

Furthermore, these buildings are cost-effective for the manufacturers too. The materials used to construct the portable building are reusable, which means that old structures can be recycled to make new buildings. In certain instances the owners, too, can sell an old portable building shell to ContainerKing® / rent-a-unit for a full refurbishment or use the funds to purchase a new portable building.

Besides, the maintenance costs of such buildings are low. Since a lot of portable buildings are  made of steel particular steel anti-vandal building’s, little to no repair is required during their lifetime. You might need to paint the outside of the building to keep it looking fresh and rust free, and a few internal adjustments to the air conditioning and insulation to ensure optimal temperatures. Still, other than that, the maintenance costs are pretty minimal, which is cost-effective.

3.      They are Eco-Friendly

Portable buildings are eco-friendly in the sense that they are recyclable. The materials used for construction do not have to go to waste or pollute the environment as litter. By selling them to manufacturers or steel companies, the portable building can be recycled to make another portable building, or other steel products, thus preventing pollution.

4.      They are Portable

As the name suggests, these buildings are portable. You can easily move them from one location to another if a need arises. During assembly, these buildings do not require you to build a foundation. All you need is a compact, flat surface or simple “pad foundations”

If you ever need to move the location of the portable building, all you need to do is call ContainerKing® / rent-a-unit to organise and hire a HIAB lorry from as little as an hour to even a full day (depending on where you intend to relocate the portable building to)

5.      Long-Lasting

Investing your money in a portable building is worthwhile because the materials used are durable, strong, and long-lasting. Besides, the materials are waterproof and non-porous and are effective in keeping out pests or animals. You don’t have to worry about replacing the building after a few years due to wear, rot, or other factors.

Over time, you will see changes on your building maybe a little rust on the outside of the building, which is quite normal. It will not reduce the integrity of the structure at all. Besides, you can paint the outside to keep away rust if you want to retain the original fresh look of the building.

Final Thoughts

As detailed above, relocatable portable buildings have some advantages, such as their cost-effectiveness, portability, cheap maintenance costs, eco-friendliness, and durability. These prefabricated buildings are effective for many uses like general office space, canteen, changing rooms, meeting rooms, sales offices and storage facilities etc etc.
