Options for Portable Offices – 5 Important Things To Consider
Portable offices are typically thought of as offices that are movable and comparatively easier to set up and take down in shorter stints of time. Some types of portable offices are even easily transported from one location to another, which makes these great options if you are in a situation where you may need to rent a portable office space for an extended period of time, but to also need to be able to move it to various locations.
When it comes to portable offices, there are a variety of options, depending on your unique needs, location, and budget.
Many event planners, construction site managers, builders, and companies undergoing renovations and/or staffing and building changes, have a need for some type of portable office space at some point in time. Portable offices can provide a quick and easy solution for fast expansion or unexpected changes, and they are often used as onsite classrooms, training facilities, staffing overflow space, storage units, medical treatment buildings, and more.
If you are considering renting a portable office and exploring your options, there are some things you should know in order to make a good decision based on your needs.
Follow along for some important things you should think about when you are considering renting a mobile office unit.
5 Things To Consider While Looking For Portable Office Rental
1. What size do you need?
Portable offices vary in considerably in terms of their dimensions. The most common units vary from 20 feet to 40 feet in size, and include 20-, 30- and 40-foot units.
2. How portable do you need your mobile office to be?
While the word “portable” suggests that every portable office is movable in some way, some units are especially portable because they are built on wheels. If you need a portable office that is built on wheels, this may impact the size of the unit. Typically portable office trailers on wheels are available as 20 or 30 foot units.
3. What type of layout do you need in your portable office unit?
While many portable offices look similar on the outside, the types of layouts inside vary significantly based on the unique needs of those using the space. For example, if you are a school using a portable office as a classroom you may will need a layout that is conducive to the types of seating and learning tools and style you will use in the space. This may include a very open design. Comparatively if you are using a mobile office as a medical treatment center, your portable office may need to feature a cluster of smaller spaces that offer privacy.
4. What type of flooring, lighting, heating, electrical outlets, air conditioning, and security are you seeking?
While every portable office rental company is not the same, when you rent a portable office from Moon Trailer Leasing in Louisville and Lexington Kentucky, you can expect certain standard features to all of our units. All of our portable office trailers have walls, ceilings and floors that are insulated. Our mobile offices also have vinyl flooring, interior wood paneling, florescent lighting, electric heating and air conditioning and windows that open, and secure steel exterior doors that lock.
5. What type of accessibility are you seeking for your portable office?
Perhaps one of the biggest ways that portable offices vary is in whether or not they are designed at ground level or put together with stairs. Portable offices with stairs should always include OSHA approved steps for easier access. Portable offices that are built at ground level do not require any stairs for entry. Larger 40-foot office units are often delivered to your site on a tilt bed trailer. This may be another consideration, depending on the location.
