Tips for saving on Modular Classroom Rental prices


When a school, church or daycare program needs more classroom space one of the best solutions can be modular classroom rental. These prefabricated structures can come in handy if an immediate need for classroom space occurs or if a more long term situation requires housing students and teachers for a prolonged period of time. While modular classrooms are a sensible and rapid solution to solving education space requirements the costs involved to mobilize one or multiple "prefabs" may present a new set of problems for your budget.

The costs to produce any product in the United States is on the rise and modular classrooms manufacturers are feeling the financial pinch in a big way. Labor, materials, administrative expense, transportation and a long list of other essential items all add up and the finished product - in this case a modular classroom - has a mountain of costs before it can be sold or rented. Traditionally a modular classroom was viewed as a fast and economical solution for school space needs but the "economical" part of this perspective may be changing.

How Long Do Modular Buildings and Portable Classrooms Last?

How long can you expect your modular building to last?

"If I buy a new modular building how long can I expect it to last? Is it worth it to buy a new model or used?"

This is a popular question at iModular.com. People call and ask us this after they have talked to suppliers or manufacturers of modular buildings and portable classrooms. The short answer is that a modular building, portable classroom or modular home can easily last as long as any "conventionally" built structure if it is built properly and maintained regularly. This means that the major components of the structure are kept in good shape and damages are repaired quickly and correctly. Here are the major components of a modular building that need to be maintained regularly:

✅Ceiling & Roof - Interior ceiling and exterior roofing material

✅Floor - Interior floor covering, sub floor and exterior (underside) insulation and cap

✅HVAC - Heating and cooling system mechanical and general cleaning

If you are debating whether to buy a new modular building or a used model the answer depends heavily on how well the used modular has been maintained. A good idea is to have the structure inspected and if it meets your standards you may save thousands of dollars in lieu of having a new model manufactured for your project.
