A tip for finding a Used Modular Classroom or Building

Here's a tip. Schools and churches use modular buildings regularly to meet temporary and permanent space needs. When they are done using the trailers they usually are willing to sell them at reasonable, sometimes very good prices. This can help you save thousands of dollars.

Try calling your local churches and schools - especially if they have portables on site or try giving the people at a ring. They seem to know where all the best deals are in the United States. Call and ask for Matt Banes at (714) 442-2757 ext. 108.

What should you take in to consideration when assessing Modular Building Cost? 

Lots of people use iModular to get the best price possible to rent or buy a modular building or portable modular classroom; however, we get phone calls and emails asking questions about other costs involved in using a modular structure. Here are the most common additional costs excluding either a monthly rent payment or the actual purchase price, license fees and taxes for the modular:

1. Delivery & return delivery.
2. Installation & removal - either on a temporary pier and pad foundation or on a more costly permanent foundation. Removal at the end of your rental period.
3. Utility connections - electric, water, sewer, telecommunications.
4. Permits - issued by the city or county where the modular will be used.
5. Accessibility - steps and/or a handicap ramp to all doors.
6. Cleaning and repair upon return.
7. Furniture rental or purchase and moving expenses.

If you are searching for a modular building supplier to answer your questions about the costs, provide pricing and help you with permits we suggest using our Free Price Request Form.

New or Used Modular Building?

Should you get a New or a Used Modular building?

We get this question a lot.."is it better to buy a new modular building or a used one?" Here's our advice.

Modular building suppliers typically have used modular buildings in stock and available "as is" or you can request floor plan modifications to meet your specific space needs. This is the less expensive option as long as you are comfortable with the square footage, condition, warranty and price. This option will also save you time. Used modular buildings can last a long time if they have been maintained properly so ask the sales person about the service history of the modular before you buy.

If you prefer having a new modular building most suppliers will work with you to design a new structure complete with the finishes and specifications you need for your business, school or church. This option gives you some helpful flexibility with the specifications compared to a used modular building and the warranty will cover a lot more. Obviously "building new" is more time consuming and expensive as well.
