When you purchased your modular classroom trailer it arrived quickly and your classroom space need was solved...that was eight years ago and now you don't need the modular any longer. What's next?

Let's take a look at the most common solutions to getting rid of a used modular classroom without wasting time or money.

Key questions answered in the post: How much does a portable modular classroom cost?

Question from a reader: My school is searching for a new or good condition used portable modular classroom for twenty-five students and we wanted to get the best possible cost for a long term rental. Our needs are simple - open classroom big enough for desks and some tables, two doors and a handicap wheelchair ramp. I searched the web for modular classroom trailers and made some calls and it seems like prices are expensive from company to company. Any ideas about how much a portable classroom cost?

Response from Matt Banes: Thanks for asking and for sharing some of the details about your modular classroom space need and pricing question. Here are a few questions and tips that have helped a lot of people in your position.

1. Are you open to renting a used modular classroom? If so you can rest assured that suppliers have used modular classrooms in stock that are in very good condition - and the prices will be lower than using a new model. Ask about in stock used classrooms that are available for the lowest price and always have a look at the modular classroom before you buy or rent. Here is a helpful modular classroom checklist to use during your search.

2. Are you open to purchasing the modular in place of a long term rental? Purchasing a used portable modular classroom can sometimes be very affordable when compared to renting a new model. Purchasing a modular classroom makes the best sense when you know that it will be needed for several years. Remember, buying a modular classroom is a real estate style purchase. If you pay rent for too long - you could have easily purchased the modular for less.

This time of the year I seem to get several calls from school districts in the U.S. that want to get rid of perfectly good used portable modular classrooms. Why? So they can either move new modular classroom trailers in...or they recently completed construction and no longer need the temporary portable buildings.

For example, today I received a call from a contractor who is responsible for removing twenty-four 24' x 40' modular classrooms from a school campus in Riverside County, California and all they want is $2,000 each modular plus the cost of removal. A few days ago I took another call from a large church in Atlanta, Georgia that has a 36' x 60' modular classroom available for the cost of removal.
