Modular & Portable Buildings For Hire

Hiring a portable building can be either a perfect short-term business solution, or a long-term answer for an expansion project. We work with businesses that may have forecast a change in circumstance, for example a growing business, and companies that have a need for an immediate space solution. Portable buildings are a fantastic choice due to their capability to be moved to a new location and be expanded once they are in place.

Springfield has established itself as a leading figure in the portable building industry with over 40 years of experience in the sector. All the components of our buildings are manufactured in our ISO-approved workshop, based in St Helens which has been the source of a huge range of developments across the UK.

Hiring Options

Hiring a portable cabin is a fantastic solution for those in the market for a more temporary solution. In terms of the buildings themselves, our clients have two primary options:

  • Select a building from our existing catalogue of used buildings. All our off-the-shelf buildings are available to hire and can be fully customisable to ensure they meet the specification’s needs.
  • Create a new bespoke building specifically for hire. We will review the hire period and suitability of the unit for re-hire/re-sale before seeing if we can help. As long as the units you want are of a design that is suitable for future use, we very likely to be able to create brand new units for hire.

The Hiring Process

The process of hiring a portable building begins simply with a phone call. One of our experienced and professional sales team members will answer a client’s call and from this point be assigned as their project manager. The project manager will match the client requirements to available stock and will consider a new build if appropriate. Overseeing the development from start to finish, the project manager will manage every aspect of the installation, including delivery and onsite completion of utilities, as well as liaising with sub-contractors, ground-workers and landscapers, right up to handing over the keys.

We understand that investing in a portable building is a major commitment and therefore merits close examination. This is why visitors are always welcome and are actively encouraged to come and view the off-the-shelf buildings we have in stock, as well as looking around our factory and speaking to our expert craftsmen. The length of the hiring process is dependent on whether you are hiring a used or a new building: ex stock can be delivered within days, whereas a new, custom building is typically built in six weeks.

Why Should I Hire A Portable Building?

The appeal of a portable building is primarily concerned with the rapid time of delivery and lower costs. Many potential clients however are not aware you can easily hire these types of buildings. Hiring a portable building can satisfy both a short-term need, with a hiring period of at least three months, or a longer project in hiring a building for up to 20 years. When hiring a portable building a client has two contract options and no long-term commitment:

  • Client-based contract: You as the client decide on the contract period, anywhere between three months and five years. 
  • Open-ended contract: There is no fixed contract length, just tell us when you're finished with your portable building and we'll take it away.

Our offsite construction methods mean we are not affected by the weather and can produce multiple components of a building simultaneously. This results in your building costing a fraction of the price of a traditional build and can be delivered in record time.

Building Types On Offer

Portable cabins are not the only building type we offer here at Springfield. Alongside our flagship cabins, we also specialise in constructing modular, jackleg, prefabricated and two storey buildings. We intend to meet our customer’s needs and offering a wide range of options is our first step towards such a goal. In addition to the building types, we also offer a fully customisable service for both the exterior finishes of your building and its interior design.

Hiring a portable building from Springfield is more than just ordering a building, it’s the start of a relationship between supplier and client. We have worked in a vast range of sectors, including and not limited to commercial, sports and leisure, education, and healthcare. Which means we are well-versed in the unique components each sector needs included in their buildings and can offer these.
