The right office trailer can be a valuable tool that makes every day on the job easier and more productive. But with several sizes, configurations and options, getting the best one for your project can make your head spin. Watch this short video to learn how to choose the right office trailer.
There are several factors to consider when choosing the right office trailer. Here are seven questions to ask before you rent or buy.
How much space do you have for the building?
You’ll need a firm, flat surface with no overhead obstructions that can get in the way of delivery or pick up of your building. Plan for at least 6 feet on all sides for delivery and pick up, though local codes may require even more space.
How will you be using your office trailer?
Do you need a basic office, or a professional-looking office that’s customer-facing?
What size office do you need?
Plan on 100 sq. ft. of floor space per occupant for most uses. For professional office trailers, such as sales centers, use 150 sq. ft. per occupant. Make sure to include regular visitors in your count.
Do you need a restroom?
Many office trailers include restrooms. Make sure to tell your sales person up front. Subtract an inside restroom from your size calculation. And, of course, you can always use a portable outside restroom.
What else will you need to have a fully functional office trailer?
Some providers have just about anything you need to get productive on day one. They should rent it to you for a reasonable price, and keep it all under one bill.
Do you need any changes to the standard layout?
Office trailers are easily configured to meet any need. A good provider should be able to create your ideal layout.
Do you need any permits or state seals?
Getting the right permits can take a few days or several weeks. Know what you need before you sign your lease.
Now that you know how to choose the right office trailer, you’re ready to start shopping.
