Portable classroom rentals vary widely in price based location, classroom size and the duration of the lease. With that in mind, expect to pay between $200 and $1,000 per month to rent a 24’ by 64’ two-room portable modular classroom. The condition of the building and the level of service from your portable classroom provider are also likely to affect monthly rental costs.
Read on to learn more about the factors that affect portable classroom rental prices.
Size of the Portable Classroom
Portable classrooms, also called modular classrooms or classroom trailers, come in range of sizes. Single classroom buildings are commonly 24’ x 38’, whereas 56’ x 64’ buildings include 4 separate classrooms. Many modular classrooms can be connected to form larger buildings and even complete schools. Not surprisingly, the larger the building the higher the rental rate. On the brighter side, pricing per square foot is usually lower.
Length of the Rental Agreement
The length of your lease is also a major factor in determining your portable classroom rental rate. The longer your lease, the lower the rate.
The floor plan is another price-determining factor. Most portable classrooms have a relatively open floor plan, so there is room for instruction. But additional rooms and restrooms will add costs above the standard layout.
Supply and demand, local taxes, permitting and transportation regulations are some variables that can affect portable classroom rental prices from one location to another. Large metro markets are likely to have greater demand and higher tax and permitting costs, while rural locations will pay less in taxes but more for transportation.
Always keep in mind that you’re renting more than the building itself. You’re renting the service level that comes with it. From the leasing process, to delivery, to service calls and, finally, returning of the classroom, better service saves you time and lets you focus on instruction. You can save time and cost by working with a company that can provide steps, ramps, furniture and anything else you’ll need to make your portable classroom ready for instruction.
While budgets are always a consideration, it’s important to remember how the factors discussed here can raise or lower not only your costs, but also your valuable time and effort.
