portable officeMobile office trailers are frequently used by companies who need to set up an office quickly, in a temporary setting, or in a remote area. Once you understand the basics (mobile office trailers 101), you can get set up within the week.

Step 1: Decide Your Needs

We've found that this tends to be the most intensive part of the process from the consumer perspective. Ask yourself:

  • How much space do we need? 
  • Should we rent or buy?
  • Do we need an HVAC system? (With computer equipment to consider, most companies require a climate-controlled container.)
  • Do we need additional modifications such as extra outlets or windows? 
  • Do we need restrooms or running water?
  • How soon do we need the mobile office trailer?
  • Where exactly will the container go? Make sure your space is big enough for the container you're ordering.
  • Do we need any other shipping containers? (It's easier to make the purchase all at once.)
