    What is a Portable Office?

    Portable offices are non-permanent fixtures that can be easily deployed for temporary use and simply removed upon project completion or whenever your space needs change. Mobile Modular sells and leases temporary modular building offices for various industries.

    Benefits of Portable Office

    There are many reasons to utilize portable offices. Compared to traditionally constructed office structures, portable offices are more:

    • Affordable: A used, portable modular office is substantially more affordable than a new, site-built structure. If your organization is looking to expand, but not keen on the idea of building a brand new office immediately, a portable office can provide as much space as you need, for as long as you need it.

    • Durable: Modular buildings, even portable ones, often exceed the quality of traditionally constructed spaces. This is because they are made in a climate-controlled environment, which ensures no materials are compromised as a result of inclement weather. The streamlined, formulaic process of modular construction results in high-quality, reliable spaces your team can utilize for weeks, months, or years.

    • Easily deployable: Short term job sites can certainly benefit from a portable office. Most projects with limited timelines wouldn’t have time for a standard, site-built office to be erected—enter: portable offices. Whenever your organization requires a portable office building on short notice, Mobile Modular is here to provide for any and all space needs.

    Types of Portable Offices

    There are various types of portable offices, including:

    Who Needs Portable Offices?

    There are many industries and situations that can benefit from portable offices:

    • Construction industry: Provide your crew with a sturdy jobsite trailer or field office to lay out plans, take morning meetings, or enjoy a quick coffee break. If your job’s timeline seems to be taking longer than expected, let us know—Mobile Modular can be flexible with leases and is happy to accommodate your needs.
    • Remote locations: For more remote areas, a portable office is essential to providing supervisors with a place to meet and discuss the day’s work. When the project is finished, portable offices are extremely simple to have removed.
    • Health care industry: During the pandemic, many hospitals were at capacity and required extra space for both patients and paperwork. Whether your healthcare organization is in need of additional space due to emergency circumstances or because of building construction, Mobile Modular has an extensive array of buildings to accommodate your specificities.
    • Government & military: For temporary or spontaneous projects, don’t worry about finding space to house your staff. A portable office from Mobile Modular is readily available to be delivered to even the most remote of locations.
    • Emergency response teams: When a natural disaster (or a pandemic) strikes, teams of helpers are brought in to aid affected communities in a variety of ways. Temporary, portable offices can be utilized as a spot to distribute emergency supplies or medical care and easily removed when the response efforts are no longer needed.
    • Any temporary jobsite: A portable office from Mobile Modular is ideal for any temporary jobsite. Our high-quality structures provide the functionality of a site-built office for a fraction of the cost.
    • Offices under renovations: Work doesn’t have to be put on pause during long-awaited renovations.
