Here’s what to know about obtaining a permit for your office trailer rental.

Renting an office trailer should be an easy process, but there are additional things you need to consider before placing your order. Before contacting a trusted trailer rental service, you should find out whether or not your office trailer use will require a permit. Depending on your location and reasons for use, your permit may change. Don’t be left with unanticipated fines to pay. Here’s what to know about obtaining a permit for your office trailer rental.

Temporary Stand-Alone Office Trailer

You will most likely need a permit if you plan to use your office trailer as a stand-alone structure for even a few months. If your structure has its own address, it will certainly require a permit. Your city or town’s permit office will want to know many details about the structure, such as the type of foundation, ground leveling, its location, ADA-compliance, sprinkler systems, and utility connections. Your trailer provider can easily share all this information with you, making the process much easier.

Residential Areas

Sometimes, a temporary office trailer requires a permit when it is located in a residential neighborhood. Temporary construction happens all the time in neighborhoods, but a permit for a trailer is necessary when neighbors aren’t very eager to be living in a construction. If there is one, you may have to clear it with the neighborhood association before construction starts.

Local Zoning Requirement

Local zone requirements differ greatly from town to town, city to city, and state to state. You must conduct the proper research for the location of your office trailer before it is delivered to the construction site. Some areas require that you obtain zoning variance approval before your office trailer arrives.
