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

Last Updated: Today

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.

Don't forget delivery and installation 
costs. Modular buildings have code 
requirements that involve proper 
foundation, handicap access and life
safety.
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.

3. If you must have a brand new portable modular classroom trailer be sure to get at least three price quotes from suppliers in your area. Try to find a manufacturer that will sell direct...in some cases this is the best way to save thousands of dollars. Otherwise shop smart and make sensible decisions when it comes to the exterior and interior finishes, amenities and always think about future resale of the modular when, and if, you outgrow the floor plan or decide to build a permanent structure.
