Buying Mobile Office Trailers: What You Need to Know
If you've decided to buy a mobile office, you need to consider if you are going for a new or a refurbished model. Before you can decide on new or refurbished, you need to know what size and type of office you need.
The advantage of buying new is that you can have the mobile office trailer constructed to your precise needs. Buying a refurbished model saves on the initial outlay, but you need to check the condition – the same as buying a used car. When you are comparing costs of a new or a refurbished office trailer, add up the total bill – repainting, modifying, and repairs, for the full cost picture.

Advantages of Buying Mobile Offices
A mobile office is a prefabricated office that is ready to use, and the capital outlay is considerably less than constructing new office space. Plus, if you want to upgrade or change your mobile office, it has a potential resale value as it can be picked up and moved to another place – unlike a constructed office. The advantages of buying a mobile office are affordability, flexibility, and speed.

Affordable

If you want to use your mobile office for years, then buying rather than renting saves money over the life of the office. You can choose to buy outright, installments, or a rent to buy option for flexibility in managing your cash flow.
 

Flexibility

You can buy a basic standard or opt for a high level of customization. Buying mobile offices lets you increase your business premises in straightforward increments. Buying mobile offices as you need the space also helps spread the capital cost of business growth over time.

Speed

Finally – buying a mobile office trailer is fast compared with building or renting new premises—no costs and hassle of moving – affordable fuss-free extra space when you need it. Choosing a mobile office won’t extend your project schedule.

Typical Mobile Office Designs
You might think that the only mobile office available is a standard rectangular box that fits a couple of people. Mobile offices are way more flexible than that. There are the basics – partitioning, doors, windows, and layout. Then there are all the other optional modifications for included storage, restrooms, and joining mobile offices together by stacking on top or alongside.
The typical construction site office uses a single storage container – size appropriate to need. But you can create any office layout by joining storage containers together. Retaining the easy mobility of a trailer office means it is best to keep the office inside the boundaries of one storage container. If movement isn't a factor in your plans, then you can be creative in your layout.
The inside layout is super flexible and takes account of how many people need to use the office – permanently or just visiting. Storage areas are optional, and so is how you position the doors, windows, and vents.
