Tips for Choosing an Office Trailer

What goes into choosing an office trailer? Here are a few criteria to understand.

A mobile office trailer can be useful in so many ways for so many industries. For construction workers, it’s a place to rest or do office work. For salespeople, it’s an abode to talk with clients about new construction homes. For disaster relief programs, it’s a haven. For those whose main building is under renovation, it’s a place to keep doing business. Whatever the need may be, one may find these tips for choosing an office trailer helpful.


First, you will need to consider what size the office trailer should be. Before this, however, comes one even more crucial step: finding land to park it. Make sure you have the permission and the space to park your mobile office unit safely before looking for a product. Once you have secured a safe, level spot to set your mobile office, be sure to purchase or rent one that fits well within the bounds and has room to fulfill your purpose.


How you intend to use this office space should be crystal clear in your mind, and how you use it will influence your choices in choosing a unit. For instance, how many people will be spending time in the space at once on a regular basis? In general, you should give 60-110 square feet per person. Meanwhile, consider the conditions. Will your trailer sit in a rural landscape or a rugged construction site? Or will it be a place to host customers comfortably? The “how” and “who” of your mobile office use may determine your flooring choices and the size. In addition, don’t forget to calculate the furniture that may need to sit inside there. Filing cabinets, desks, and planning tables take up space. 


Another factor in your search is how long you plan to use the trailer. The duration of time may alter how you set up the structure. If it is only for a few months, you may have a simpler foundation set up that is easy to undo for faster transferring from lot to lot. However, if you intend to keep it around for a year, a more permanent foundation set up may be advisable.
