Mobile office rental is an ideal solution for anyone who needs temporary office space, quickly and at an affordable rate.
Why consider mobile office rental?
Mobile offices are widely used on construction and mining sites; in factories and warehouses; at sporting events, festivals, markets, and concerts; and at police and military events.
Even if you use a mobile office over a long period (most are built to last), you retain flexibility. When you no longer need the office space, the unit can simply be returned – typically with one month’s notice.
Hiring a mobile office instead of buying it outright means there’s no need for significant capital outlay.
Types of mobile offices for hire
A variety of mobile offices are available, including converted shipping containers, storage trailers and modular units. Each has its pros and cons.
Shipping container mobile offices
Mobile offices converted from new or used shipping containers keep the dimensions and structure of the container while incorporating doors, windows, proper flooring and other fittings needed in an office.
They’re quick to convert, are customisable and can be easily moved to and around your site.
Storage trailer mobile offices
Storage trailer offices are self-contained and, like container offices, don’t need to be assembled onsite.
However, they need to be secured to the ground, which makes them less mobile.
They have a lifespan of between one and five years so are typically used as a short-term solution.
Modular or prefabricated mobile offices
Prefabricated mobile offices are partially manufactured offsite. However, they still need to be assembled onsite, which can be disruptive.
The main advantage is that more complex structures can be created. These can include a number of rooms and multiple storeys.
They’re the most expensive option, but have a long lifespan. They’re often used for long-term office rentals.
Advantages of shipping container offices
Mobile offices that have been converted from shipping containers offer several advantages:
- they’re ready-made and can be delivered with little or no lead time
- no onsite assembly is required – a mobile office is simply placed where you want it
- they’re constructed of durable, marine-grade steel and are sturdy, weather-resistant and vandal-proof
- they’re easy to relocate
- they can be insulated and air-conditioned
- more container mobile offices can be added as you need them
- they’re customisable with features such as extra security, carpeting and storage areas.
