About Our Used Portable Cabins

Our used portable cabins started life as a brand new building at some point. These buildings come from many different manufacturers some of which include;

  • Portakabin
  • Elliott
  • Wernick
  • Thurston
  • AV Danzer

Much like the sale of a pre-owned car, each cabin we sell still has a lot of life left in them. They can be refurbished to a very high standard with all the bells and whistles of a new portable cabin.

What are the benefits of Used Portable Cabins?

Cost Effective – In the modern climate, building something permanent can be extremely expensive. Consideration needs to be taken for the amount of materials needed, labour costs and the amount of time these projects can take.

By purchasing or hiring a second hand portable cabin, you can benefit greatly from the impact it has on your wallet. Furthermore, savings against the cost of buying an equivalent new portable cabin could be as great as 50%.

High Quality – Our used portable cabins meet the same quality and functional standards as brick-and-mortar buildings. They are built to last and can be reused many times – a testament to their high quality construction. They are ideal to use in any weather, as they cool quickly in the summer and stay warm during the winter seasons.

Fast Installation – There is no need to wait around for construction, as the cabins are ready to be assembled at your specified location. They provide quick and easy accommodation for offices, temporary classrooms, changing rooms, toilets and more.

In addition to this, our portable buildings can be erected on difficult sites which may otherwise be problematic for permanent buildings to be installed.

Easy to Relocate – Portable cabins are particularly useful if ever you need to move to a new location. You can simply transfer and relocate your portable building to your new destination. These buildings can be positioned to a new spot on an existing site, or even a new premises entirely – all without having to incur high costs.

Utilise Space – A portable cabin is a great way of maximising your available space. If there is an area on your site that isn’t being utilised, these units offer the perfect solution. You can instantly create a comfortable and professional working space for a range of applications.

Security – Our used portable cabins offer the same level of security you would typically find in a traditional build – helping to keep your building secure against theft and vandals.

Sustainability – Sustainability is now a large factor for the way certain companies procure their products. These portable structures are built using environmentally responsible materials that are safe to use for a long time.

In addition to this, buying or hiring a pre-owned unit has a positive impact on lowering carbon emissions into the atmosphere – due to the reduced amount of waste and materials used. Buying a used portable cabin can lower-carbon emissions by up to 70% against the construction of a new building.

Essential Buying Portable Building Tips

About to buy a Portable Cabin? With over 50 years of experience in the industry, we have compiled a guide which will provide you with some key points you need to consider before you make your purchase.

  • Consider the space you have – If you have a spacious area for a portable cabin, the building should slot right in. Although in some cases, space can be limited. Therefore, at MPB, we have a professionally trained installation team to help deliver portable buildings in the tightest of spaces. We also complete a site visit to ensure the buildings can be delivered safely.
  • Think about the foundations of the building – Will it be sitting on tarmac or grass? Do you have knowledge of where your services are located in relation to where the building will be sited? Here at MPB, we can ensure all facilities are up and running for your building. We offer a full turn key contract, where we will take care of everything from planning and building regulation applications, design and manufacture installation and handover.
  • Identify the primary purpose of the building – is your building going to be a classroom or an office for example? Are there any particular design aesthetics that you will need to achieve such as cedar cladding or a brick slip finish? Would you prefer the low maintenance finish of a plastisol steel exterior? At MPB, we adapt our buildings to suit any requirement you may have. Our design team will collaborate with your needs to ensure you are delighted with the result.
  • How many people do you need to house in this building? – A standard 32′ x 10′ portable building is the most popular size, as it provides an ideal space for 4/5 people with desks. It can also be adapted to include toilets and a kitchenette. Whereas, a 20′ x 10′ building can ideal for tighter spaces or a smaller workforce. We also provide modular classrooms for education.
  • How long do you want it for? – We have a range of buildings available for hire and sale. A cost-effective solution is to hire a portable cabin. They can cost anywhere from £20.00 per week. If you are about to buy a portable building, think how long you would need it for. At MPB, we also look at buying buildings back from our customers – subject to condition.
  • Want it new or refurbished? Our new portable cabins are constructed to meet your requirements, although they can be more expensive than our refurbished range. Our used portable cabins use the same high-quality materials and often are much more cost-effective.

MPB Ltd offers a range of solutions for your requirements. If you would like to buy or hire a portable cabin, see our list of available buildings or get in touch with us today!
