    When it’s Time to Return the Modular Building

    When your lease term is over, you need to ensure the building is ready to be picked up. To make the return process smoother and to avoid additional charges, make sure you keep the following in mind:

    • Cleanup by sweeping and removing items on walls. Make sure to eliminate hazards such as custom chairs, fences, ramps, landscaping, or anything else around the building that could cause obstructions to a smooth pick up.
    • Disconnect Utilities by draining water systems, disconnecting the electrical power supply, removing low voltage wiring, and removing any other add-ons you or your subcontractors have installed.
    • Return Original Keys to the appropriate Mobile Modular representative.
