California Modular Classroom Availability

In the past 6 months we have helped several California based schools, churches and daycare centers rent and purchase very affordable used modular classroom buildings. It seems as if this trend is continuing in 2017 as demand for modular classroom space is growing... and as we approach spring and summer this will not stop as more schools will begin to figure out their temporary and permanent space needs.

What are your modular classroom or modular office space needs? Here are the top reasons why people contact us for help buying and renting modular classrooms:

1. Out of space and need modular classrooms quickly.
2. Adding new educational or daycare programs and need more space.
3. Opening a new school or daycare and prefer modular classroom space over building new.
4. Current modular classrooms are old and need replaced.
5. School construction has caused a need to relocate students and teachers into temporary modular classroom spaces.

Sound familiar? Here are some items to consider before you contact modular classroom companies for assistance:

1. Permits - contact your local building department and explain how you are planning to use the modular classroom. They will then inform you as to what you will need to obtain the required permits.

2. Know how many students/teachers you will need to accommodate in the modular classroom.
3. Have a good idea as to what you will want the modular classroom floor plan to look like.
4. Have a good idea as to how you want the interior and exterior of the modular classroom to look (finishes, colors, special needs like storage, kitchen, bathrooms).
5. Know when and where you will be placing the modular classroom on your campus..or be prepared to invite the modular classroom sales person to visit your campus and make suggestions.

I hope this is helpful - and if so feel free to call us directly for help with your modular classroom project at the Modular Building Hotline (800) 806-7485 or simply complete our modular building contact form and we will be right back in touch with you.

Why now is the time to buy a used portable classroom in California

Used Portable Classroom
Have you ever heard the saying "It's a Buyer's market"? Well in California this is very true if you are searching for a used portable classroom trailer for your school, church, daycare center or literally any type of business that may need space for teaching or training.

Why are the prices to buy a used portable so affordable in California? It's pretty simple - the market is huge and for decades portable classrooms have been purchased by all types of organizations that eventually no longer need the portable - or "modular" classroom trailer. When the portable is no longer needed....bingo! You have a great opportunity to buy it at a very discounted price. The trick is being in the know and having good timing.

This is where my services come in handy. For 26 years I have been building a network of contacts in California public school districts, large church organizations, government recreation and parks offices, and the list goes on. This group of people have come to know me a their resource for everything "portable", especially when its time to selling or relocating a used portable classroom or modular office trailer.

Open floor plan portable classroom
For example, last month a church organization in San Diego contacted me through iModular.com and asked if I could help them remove two 24' x 40' portable classrooms from their property because they were blocking access to the new construction site for an administration building. After a quick site visit and some calls I was able to have these portables removed and transported to a storage facility in Riverside, California where they now are being cleaned, painted, new carpet installed and completely tuned up for anyone interested. I covered the removal expenses and transportation and the church solved their dilemma. It's not always this easy and sometimes I purchase the assets for a fair price - either way it benefits everyone from buyer to seller to new buyer.

I've kept the costs super low for the storage, transportation, refurbishment and now will be able to sell these as California certified, used 24'x40' portable classrooms to anyone interested and in need of classroom space quickly - and affordably.

Trailer steps for a mobile office trailer on site.
Typical mobile office trailer with aluminum steps.
Is it me or do a lot of people have trouble finding those aluminum, OSHA approved steps for access in and out of mobile office trailer?

Measure the distance from the ground to the threshold of the door and have that information ready to share with the suppliers we will be connecting you with. Be sure to either take a photo of the mobile office trailer or clearly describe in the ground where the OSHA approved steps will be installed is level or not.

Schools Sell and Donate Their Portable Modular Classrooms

Portable Modular Classrooms for Sale


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 trailers in or they recently completed construction and no longer need the temporary trailers to house students.

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 plus the cost of removal. A few days ago I took another call from a large church in Georgia that has a 36' x 60' modular classroom to get rid of - for next to nothing.

In some cases a school district or church will simply donate their modular buildings to another organization in need of space - this leaves only the costs for removal, transportation and set up. What a deal!

This article was updated today May 18, 2016. If you represent a public or private school, church or daycare program and are searching for a used modular classroom to buy or rent - your timing is very good no matter what part of the U.S. you are in. Why? Because there are an abundance of 24' x 40' and 24' x 60' used modular classrooms available through suppliers and other schools and churches who no longer need the space. This increase in supply is happening because suppliers experienced years of manufacturing, selling and renting tens of thousands of modular classrooms and now many of them are no longer needed by the original customers.
