A Smart Tip for Finding a Used Modular Building or Portable Classroom

Here’s a tip. Public and private schools and churches use modular buildings regularly to meet their temporary and permanent facility space needs. This can be due to a sudden increase in enrollment, a long-term construction project that will disrupt normal campus life, or even an emergency situation that requires office and classroom space until the facility is back to normal. When these organizations are done using the temporary trailers they usually are willing to sell them at reasonable, sometimes very discounted prices. This can help you save thousands of dollars if you are flexible with the floor plan and finishes of the structure.

So, if you are searching for space and a modular building seems like a good solution try calling your local school district or church organization. Here’s who to contact at each type of establishment:

Public School – Facility Manager, Director of Facilities
Private School – Operations Manager
Church – Facility Manager, Pastor

  • "We used this tip and our local church here in Los Angeles actually had a modular building for sale. We bought it for a lot less than we were being quoted by the modular building company. Thanks"

    From one of our clients in Burbank, California. This is proof that used modular buildings and portable classroom trailers can be found by calling local churches and schools. Or just ring me (Matt Banes) for some help if you need.
