Used Modular Building - Locker Room

Used modular buildings make great locker rooms for schools.
We get a lot of calls every month from schools looking for temporary modular locker, shower and bathroom trailers to rent or buy. Here's a recent message a school facility manager left us:
"We are researching using a modular locker room building for our athletic department team room and a facility for showers. Can you help us locate something like this for our school campus?"
We are always happy to help any school or church in need of a facility. Modular buildings are often used for locker rooms, team rooms, shower and bathroom facilities for schools and universities in need of temporary space during construction or remodeling projects. Modular prefabricated buildings can easily be manufactured or used models can be outfitted with the features typically found in sports facilities including the following:
  • Individual Lockers
  • Benches
  • Equipment cages
  • Showers
  • Toilets / urinals
  • Enhanced floor systems to support exercise equipment and weights

Modular prefab shower, bathroom and locker rooms trailersCheck with your local modular supplier if you have a need for any type of modular locker room with or without showers and toilets. In many cases you will be able to rent an available used model or make modifications to an existing floor plan to suit your needs. If you can't find the right model you may want to explore having a new modular locker building manufactured for your specific needs.

When Using a Portable Classroom Becomes Too Expensive

This is not my typical "how to find the best price on a portable classroom" post because sometimes using a portable modular building isn't the best option for your business, church or school. While portables are a fast and flexible way to get space quickly and cost effectively - sometimes there are obstacles that make using a portable classroom too expensive.

For example, if you are considering using a portable classroom for your school campus or church you may encounter these costly problems:
Used portable classroom site selection and buying tips

1. No land. Believe it or not some campuses simply don't have the room to accommodate a 24' x 40' or 24' x 60' portable classroom. Squeezing another structure onto the property could cause permitting problems, fire hazards or even security issues.

2. Other structures are blocking the proposed site for the portable classroom. When you need to use a crane to install a portable modular building the costs start to skyrocket. Besides the cost of the crane there are many other considerations - including the eventual removal of the portable when it is no longer needed.

3. The proposed site isn't level and needs lots of work to accommodate a portable classroom. The costs involved in site work can also skyrocket if the "building pad" needs soil testing, compaction, concrete footings, underground utilities and asphalt parking and drop off zones.

If you think you may have a "site challenge" for a portable classroom I recommend inviting a portable building representative to your campus in advance of making any other decisions. This will give you a clear idea of how much work will be involved in mobilizing your new space - without demobilizing your budget.

Modular Church Buildings Make Good Sense

Modular church buildings make great space options
Modular church building.
Every month I receive calls from churches and private schools that are in need of space and most callers are considering the use of a modular building to solve their facility need. Some callers need additional classroom space due to overcrowding, some need space for their congregation, and some need office space during construction or renovation. Regardless of the reasons for needing the space, using a modular building is a very good solution. Here's why:

1. Churches in newer communities often experience fast growth and need to add space quickly. When there's no time for new construction modular is fast and affordable.

Be Flexible When Buying a Modular Building

Nearly every day I field calls from around the United States from people looking for help finding a used modular building - and it never gets old! I'm amazed at how many businesses, schools, churches and government organizations need space for reasons ranging from overcrowding to emergency disaster relief and everything in between. The most common recommendation I make is "be flexible" if you need a modular building delivered and installed quickly.

What does be flexible mean? It's not a play on words - after all modular buildings are designed to be flexible so I am referring to important features like the floor plan, door and window locations, interior and exterior finishes and so on. If you can be flexible with these particulars your chances of finding a used modular building and having it up and operational quickly are far better than being too picky. Needless to say, being flexible also leads to finding a good price from a local supplier.

Tips For Saving Money Before You Buy

modular buildings for sale usedBuying a used modular office trailer can get pretty tricky if it's your first time. In fact, I receive plenty of questions from first time buyers who simply want good advice without a sales pitch. So if you are in the market for any type of modular building - from a construction office to a portable classroom or daycare center, follow these buying tips or give m a call for some guidance. It always pays to buy smart.

1. Once you have found the modular building floor plan you like always inspect the structure in person. Feel free to invite any contractor friend who has enough building experience to look at the structure and understand its current condition.

2. If you are buying the used modular building from a private owner ALWAYS have the heating and air conditioning unit(s) inspected and tested for performance. These are the most technical aspects of the modular so make sure you know what you are buying. Buying parts is not a big deal - but the costs can add up if the units are in really bad shape.

3. Inspect the roof and floor conditions. Changing the carpet or tile floor finish isn't that challenging but if the sub floor is in poor condition that could get expensive. The same goes for the roof. Look for signs of any leaking in past months and if you can, have your contractor climb up top to look for an obvious damage or maintenance needs.

4. Be sure the person or company selling the used modular building is the true owner! Ask for the original title just like you would before buying a car and be sure everything checks out. Also, be sure that there are no past due taxes or license fees - some states require these.

I have several more tips for you and my advice comes for free - so call me any time at (714) 442-2757 ext 108. You can also get prices for used modulars from modular building suppliers by using my Price Quote Request Form.
