When Mobile Office Options Are Limited, What Are Your Choices?

When your company requires temporary mobile offices, your options are a bit limited. In fact, there are really only two viable options: telecommuting and custom storage containers. It may seem like these options offer more limitations than opportunities, the opposite is actually true. Below, we’ll explore a few of the benefits that each of these options offers.


When your office is uninhabitable, one of the first options that might come to mind is telecommuting. For many business owners, this option might seem a little bit scary. It certainly requires an inherent trust between you and your employees! But if you decide that telecommuting is the right option for your temporary office situation, here are some of the benefits it offers:

  • Flexibility – Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to telecommuting. Not only does it mean flexibility in location, it may also mean flexibility in scheduling. For example, if someone needs to attend a medical appointment, they can do so without fear of having to take time off.
  • Cost Effe
    – If cost is one of your primary constraints, then say hello to telecommuting. Not only does this mean you don’t have to look for a suitable office space, it means there are no rent payments to make, either.

Custom Storage Containers

If telecommuting is out of the question for you, it’s time to consider option number two: custom mobile office containers. It might seem a little bit unconventional, but this option certainly has its own set of unique benefits. Let’s look at a few:

  • Environmentally Friendly – If the environment is a big factor in your mobile office decision, steel shipping containers are the way to go. Almost 675 shipping containers are lost at sea every year, and many more sit unused. Why not make use of one?
  • Easy Transport – Need to pack up shop and move to a different location? Used shipping containers make that an easy job. Designed for mobility, these containers are easily moved from point A to point B.
  • Extra Space – A 20-foot long storage container offers plenty of space for a single office. If you’re thinking a larger container would better fit the bill, no worries! There are also 40-foot options for you to choose from.

Your options for a mobile office might be a little bit limited, but each has its merits. If you have any questions about custom storage containers, contact Integrated Equipment Sales today.
