Modular & Portable Buildings For Hire

Hiring a portable building can be an ideal long-term solution for an expansion project or an immediate space requirement. We collaborate with businesses anticipating a change in circumstances, such as growth or an urgent need for additional space. Portable buildings are an excellent choice due to their versatility, allowing them to be relocated or expanded as needed.

We understand that appearance and functionality are crucial to finding the perfect building. Just some of the building finishes we can offer include:

  • Office Furniture – Including workstations, chairs, storage and lighting.
  • Fire and Security Alarms – Including emergency lighting.
  • Steps and Ramps – To provide easy access and compliance with Building Regulations.
  • Finishing Touches – From window guards and steel shutters to lifts and stair pods.

Springfield has established itself as a leading figure in the portable building industry, with over 50 years of industry experience. All the components of our buildings are manufactured in our ISO-approved workshop based in St Helens, which has been the source of a vast range of developments across the UK.

Choosing a portable building from Springfield is a strategic move for businesses, offering a range of advantages that can revolutionise your operations:

  • Flexibility: Portable buildings can be customised and expanded to meet changing business needs.
  • Speed: They provide a quick solution for urgent space requirements, minimising disruption to operations.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: They offer a cost-efficient alternative to traditional construction, with reduced construction time and labour costs.
  • Mobility: These buildings can be relocated easily, making them suitable for businesses needing to move premises.

Whether you’re in need of portable office space, a classroom for your growing educational institution, or specialist healthcare facilities for your expanding medical practice, we’re here to tailor a solution to your unique requirements. Our commitment is to exceed your expectations and deliver a cost-effective, flexible solution to your expansion needs.

Why Hire/Buy A Portable Building From Springfield?

As well as being able to work with you to create a bespoke building specifically for hire, we also have a vast range of buildings in stock and ready to go now. This means that your temporary portable building can be delivered within days of your order, if that is what you need. 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 it can be delivered in record time.

The process of hiring a portable building from Springfield couldn’t be smoother. A dedicated project manager will see your order through from start to finish. Whatever your building needs, your dedicated project manager can provide you with a wide variety of options in terms of building types and finishes, regardless of whether you are looking to hire or purchase.

When it comes to modular buildings, we can provide what you want, how you want it, when you want it. You can choose to hire a building at whatever level of finesse suits your requirements. 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.

Fast turnaround time does not mean a loss of quality. Quality is our number one goal, and we endeavour to deliver a unit that is 100% right for your business – with all the advantages of off-site production and no on-site building work necessary. We want the end result to be that you have hired a complete, fully fitted out, comfortable and secure building from Springfield. Just some of the finishes we can provide include bespoke internal fittings dependant on your sector and the building usage, climate-control systems, alarm systems and tailored features and facilities to comply with any standards associated with your building requirements.

With over 50 years trading, we’re not going to disappear overnight and are well-versed in the unique components each building needs. Rest assured that Springfield will see your building hire project through, with continual support throughout your hire period. Any maintenance or servicing requirements will be taken care of by Springfield, to ensure that your building delivers optimum performance throughout your hire contract.

One of the brilliant things about hiring a modular building is that your building can be extended, reconfigured or relocated with ease.  Hiring a portable building can satisfy both a short-term need, with a hiring period of at least three months, or a long-term need with the option to hire a building for up to 20 years.
