Your construction site might be temporary, but that shouldn’t mean that your office space has to fit inside the bed of a pickup truck. Renting out mobile office containers refurbished from used shipping containers can be a godsend for any construction job.
Why use shipping or storage containers instead of trailers? Simply put, they’re readily available. Of the 17 million shipping containers in the world, only about 6 million are actually in use. That leaves 11 million vacant steel shipping containers that could be converted to offices, homes, pop up shops, or portable offices.
In addition, your mobile office containers can improve work site productivity, morale, and professionalism. Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll discover from working out of portable office containers:
- Secure storage space. Keep all of your documents in a neat and safe space where they’ll be well protected from the elements. An organized file system can also make finding those documents much easier when you need them.
- Better meetings. When you need to talk with clients or oversight managers about the progress of your work, you’ll want to put your most professional foot forward. Mobile office containers give you a “real office” feel that you simply won’t get from talking inside a vehicle or trying to find a quiet spot on site.
- Work efficiency. Rather than having to commute from a permanent office location to the work site — perhaps multiple times a day — you can keep your mobile office containers directly in the vicinity. This can be crucial when you need to switch back and forth between management and execution on any given day.
- Boost morale. There’s nothing like a quick moment of respite from a hard work day. Employees will appreciate a place to store belongings, or the ability to charge a phone throughout the day. This can add to your workplace environment, making the site a more pleasant place to spend your waking hours.No matter the job, a mobile office is a must. Get what you need with some clever and custom-fitted storage container modifications to make the most of your work site.
