Portable Class Rooms for Sale in California

For anyone in California, interested in Portable Class Rooms


24'x40' and 24'x60' Portable modular class rooms make great spaces for public or private schools, daycare programs, churches and YMCA centers. I've helped several schools buy and sell used models that are in really good condition.

Here are a few tips if you are searching for space to rent or buy and modular is the way you've decided to go.

1. Call your local building and safety department and have the address where you plan on locating the portable class rooms. Ask about obtaining a conditional use permit for the structure. Be prepared to describe how the prefabricated structure will be used, how long it will be on your site and where the closest plumbing, electrical and handicapped equipped bathrooms are/will be.

If you need some help call me at (714) 442-2757 ext 108.

Tip #2 - Site selection.
After you have discovered city and state guidelines for locating a modular structure on your property or on property you are searching for you should start the planning stage. Here are some steps to follow next:

2. If you are going to buy or rent property explain your requirements to your real estate agent and be clear about using a modular building as your type of building.

3. Locate all utilities and meet with an electrician, a plumber (if needed) and a used modular building set up contractor (you can find one by calling a local modular building supplier) to review the site and obtain accurate prices for all utility and installation costs. Note - if you are going to develop a site for long term or permanent use learn everything about the property you can including prior use, soil conditions, adjoining properties and future development plans in the area.

4. Once you have selected the property or identified where the modular will be placed on your property it’s time to move to Tip #3, contacting and choosing the right supplier.

About Modular Buildings
A modular building is a factory-built structure that complies with the same building codes as traditional construction. Modular construction is ideal for any application including education and government facilities as illustrated above. They offer the advantages of early occupancy, portability, financial flexibility, and often cost savings. Modular buildings have established a growing niche in the construction process for organizations that need quality temporary or permanent space without the delays often associated with traditional “site built” construction. Modular buildings have also been identified as a more eco-friendly building option for those companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
