|Find a used modular building and|
Here are a couple of pointers if you are in the market for a used modular:
A. Always have the modular inspected by a contractor first. Make sure the HVAC is in good working condition and that there is no major electrical, plumbing or structural damage to the frame, roofing, walls or flooring.
B. Ask the owner to provide original paperwork (original bill of sale, license information, registration, warranty, floor plan and specifications).
C. If you are buying the modular out of state be sure that it meets your state and local building codes. Check with your local Building and Safety department.
D. If you are installing the modular on a temporary pier and pad style foundation ask if the materials for installation are included. If it’s a more permanent installation ask your set up contractor for details.
E. Ask the owner for any past service records.
F. Ask the owner/seller about the original warranty or if you can purchase an extended warranty.
G. Ask if a handicap ramp or aluminum steps are included with the sales price. You will need access.
