The Benefits of Hiring a Portable Building

A temporary building is a perfect solution when the need for more space occurs – it really doesn’t matter what for, the space is yours, use it exactly as you want. We provide buildings for many purposes and to provide solutions in many situations. We offer portable buildings from our hire fleet as an answer to a short term problem. Should you need a longer-term hire for an ongoing need we are happy to build to accommodate your specific needs.  

What are the Benefits of Hiring?

Low Costs

One of the most obvious benefits of hiring your portable building is the lower cost. Your project manager can discuss your options and find a solution that meets your needs as well as your budget. Plus fixed prices for hiring mean there will be no cost increases or unexpected bills. You gain all the benefits of a traditional build at a fraction of the time and cost.

Low Commitment

Hiring a portable building allows you to try the solution without committing to a permanent structure. This is a good way to mitigate risk and keep costs down – you can use the building straight away, and retain the flexibility of calling Springfield to remove the building when no longer required.


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 to be expanded with additional units once they are in place. 


All the components of our buildings are manufactured in our ISO-approved workshop based in St Helens by trade craftsmen who have access to the latest technology and benefit from the tight controls, innovative ideas and the pursuit of constant improvement that has built Springfield into an industry-leading company during our decades of modular construction.

Eco Friendly

Springfield has always been environmentally aware and conscious of our impact on our environment. This is reflected throughout our organisation and affects every decision we make and has done for many years. The growing demand for the business to demonstrate a responsible approach is welcomed and embraced by all our employees with internal policies and those of external suppliers monitored through board-level reporting. 

Choosing a modular building is in itself an environmentally friendly way to expand your business space and when you are aware that we constantly seek out and source the very best materials for the job you can be sure that the environmentally aware box is well and truly ticked. Energy-efficient heating and cooling systems along with LED lighting and thermally efficient units are standard in all our buildings.

Low Disruption

As there are no requirements for excavation or on-site construction, there is very little disruption to your business.
